We enjoyed a great dinner at Nell Thorn. In our view, the food and service were the best in La Conner. We'll definitely return if we're in the area.

The atmosphere was ok and menu choices good. While my pasta dish was not to my liking due to the type of mushrooms they used, our server returned it and in quick order had my 2nd choice on the table which was good. However, not impressed by whomever was the bartender. When you ask for a drink on the rocks with mix on the side ...you expect a 3 or 4 oz of mix in a small glass, not 10 oz of coke in a tall glass that you can't pour without spilling. OVERALL: The food was good, but not for the price; Our server was great. VERDICT: Disappointed! Not our server's fault ..as she tried hard; but I wouldn't go back. - At least one other place in town offers a better dining experience for the same money.

This was a big disappointment. We sat outside on the deck with the sun beating down on us because the umbrella was broken and the server's response was "Yes - it's broken" - and no solution whatsoever. We ordered appetizers that were marginally interesting and not very good at all...and as a result of the poor quality, poor service and expensive prices - decided not to order dinner. I would not return.

Nice atmosphere and great wine list and beers on tap. However my clams tasted like salty parmesan cheese. Panna Cotta was good.

Me and my mother have been to La Conner so many times and never realized that this little gem was set back off the street we have walked by a million times , it must have just recently opened in this location we assumed.
But we were excited to see it's a beautiful place, very welcoming. We wanted to sit on the deck outside, we did have to wait about 15 minutes but that was ok.
We were seated and ordered some Chardonnay to start off, I will say the one thing we did not appriciate, was the large plants/shrubs placed by the tables in between the water view and the tables, make it extreamly hard to enjoy the beautiful views.
We ordered the Chicken Wings and some Clams Toscano to split, the wings are great not greasy , very crispy and flavorful.
The clams were very very flavorfull can really taste the bacon, we dipped the bread in the juices it was decadent !!
Our server was very friendly and prompt.
We had a nice time and will return, a nice change for us who always end up at the same places with each visit.
