Let me start by saying the food here is fantastic! We ordered the Halibut and Chips and it was by far the best fish and chips I’ve ever had. However, the service is really slow so be prepared to be patient as they only have...More

Not the best on atmosphere, but a very welcoming place and the 'bucket of buts' is the best halibut I've had in a while. Really lightly breaded, seasoned chunks with cole slaw, etc. Quick service also.

Great atmosphere.Great Halibut. The seafood chowder is best ever. An old fashioned place for adults and kids.

We (five adults) ordered a whole bunch of 'deep fried' favorites; halibut, fries, onion rings, and sweet potato fries. All the food was perfectly fried. Service was fast, friendly, and efficient. It's a little pricey but good and we will return.

Local restaurant away from the dock, with bar atmosphere but good food. Highly recommend the the “bucket of butts” (halibut). It’s not your ordinary battered fish but rather very lightly dusted with seasoning that is brown & crisp... Yum and then some!!

Walking into this place is like walking into a time machine. The seats and ceiling are leather (fake) with brass buttons and the walls are covered with old designer whiskey bottles. They have modern big screen TVs and the place is smoke free, but I...More

I have come to Thorn’s multiple times since I was in high school. Wait staff was friendly as usual. We had the potato skins for an appetizer and they were delicious, I had a club sandwich which was tasty. My dad said the burger was...More
