Great food, great waiter! The tables are very close together and the temperature was cool. The decor was a throw-back to the 40's-50's supper club dining style.

I had the small bucket of butts (halibut) and some fried clams. Both were spectacular! Not too fancy, was a great casual dining place with excellent food and service.

Great food options, but a bit expensive. There was 5 of us and the bill was $81. The chowder was tasty but watery. The halibut, fries, onion rings were good.

Thorn’s is known for their halibut served in buckets. The seafood was good, burgers okay, service so-so. This place badly needs a physical makeover. All the walls and beams are covered in tufted vinyl. Smokers hang out just outside the front door.

Went with 4 adults and the best meal by far is the bucket of halibut. Prepared to perfection. Decor is old but in good condition. They had some very funky two person seats. Made it a fun atmosphere. Quick service.

Get the bucket of buttes (halibut chunks). Best I have ever eaten. Mostly fish in a light beer batter. Yum,
