Kari VandenBosch started working in restaurants at a young age before working at La Conner Seafood & Prime Rib House for the founding owners, eventually buying it from them. “I have always loved the challenge of the complexity that comes from the many moving parts of owning a restaurant,” says Kari. La Conner Seafood is a family-run business with long-time staff and a focus on sourcing local seafood. “I love that we can source seafood from around here and that we offer a little slice of paradise to those that visit from near and far away,” says Kari.
La Conner Seafood is a scratch kitchen with a variety of menu items that are available all day. You can get a burger for dinner or lobster for lunch. It’s a blend of high-end seafood and simple pasta dishes as well. Their goal is to offer a diverse menu so that there is something for everyone in the family or group on the menu. Their best-selling menu items are the prime rib, calamari, macadamia halibut, scallops, fish tacos, fish and chips, and of course the clam chowder.
La Conner Seafood & Prime Rib House is privileged to offer the following local foods: Blau Oysters, Taylor Shellfish, Nelson Potatoes, Lone Tree Seafood, local produce from Hedlin Farms and Schuh Farms and the list is growing. Also, on tap are eight local Northwest beers and an extensive Pacific Northwest wine selection.
Historic Waterfront Building
La Conner Seafood & Prime Rib House is located in a historic building on the La Conner Boardwalk with a thrilling past of smuggling, gambling, and the crazy hippy days of the 60’s & 70’s. From the waterfront La Conner Seafood & Prime Rib House restaurant you can see first-hand fishing boats coming in with fresh crab, shrimp, halibut, and salmon. Surrounding La Conner is the largest and most diverse agricultural community west of the Cascade mountain range. And just up the road are the famous shellfish farms. What once was a sleepy little fishing village is now a foodie paradise!
