Quality establishment. Friendly and professional staff. Excellent meal - fish and seafood is the reason to go but other dishes are strong too. As a U.K. visitor do tell them you aren't in a rush. As usual in the USA service surrounds speed!

We would recommend Nell Thorn to everyone! We had a delicious meal. If you love crab, then try the Crab Spaghetti! The staff was fun and informative!! We will definitely return to the Nell Thorn!

Our party of four had everything from oysters to the ploughman's lunch to the salmon and cod melt, and everything was outstanding. Great presentation, flavors, and staff. Will definitely be back.

Very efficient service versus other high priced places with mediocre service and food. The food here is fantastic and the service matches that. They have water view and outside dinning. The calamari was wonderful.

At 3:30 PM we ate outside on the veranda overlooking the canal. We'd been advised by the proprietors of Seaport Books, a nearby shop, to try the polenta smothered in a gorgonzola cream sauce. Excellent advice. Along with the polenta we had oysters and a...More
