Hawthornes always delivers. I moved close by 2 years ago and it has absolutely become my go to spot. The food is always incredible. The beer selection and cocktails are always great, and the staff is incredible.

Wonderful attentive service. Great food! Wish the decor was more inviting.

Coverings for pavement and possible votives flowers at table and real silverware would be preferred but overall great food and experience!

Great food and drinks, service is always good. People are nice. Feels overpriced, especially since their meals are smaller now outside using the disposable trays. OVerall love it there, though.

the waitress was splendid, but the manager would not assist me when I complained about the taste of my food. I had to pay for food that I did not enjoy. The manager spoke to me as if I was incompetent and a petty criminal.

Mid snow storm and pandemic, and Hawthorne’s was open, modifying everything to fit all of the circumstances. My two young kids and I had an awesome brunch in one of the private dining bubbles (there is also a larger, socially distanced heated tent). The food and drinks were incredible and service was so friendly and accommodating. Had never been before and now cannot wait to go back.

They have created a wonderful outdoor experience during covid. There are choices of types of seating; ie: a large tent, igloos, and tables and chairs with heaters. The food is served in throw-away cardboard and all utensils and cups and glasses are throw-away. The menu and paying the Bill are considered actress. The food is always very fresh and is very tasty. Great meal!

Love Hawthorne's outdoor space! The igloos are the perfect way to safely enjoy your meal and support local businesses. The food is delish and I haven't tried a cocktail I didn't like :)

It’s sometimes hard to adjust expectations when they have been set so high by the restaurant under normal circumstances. But this is a different world right now and they did a great job. Kudos to them after overcoming a fire as well. These folks don’t give up and that’s why they are a great Philly spot!

Great food and great/fast service. They are outdoor only due to covid right now but you have the choice of a tent or heated table setting. Both we’re awesome.

I really enjoy going to Hawthornes. the food is delicious and the service is wonderful. Now they have igloos so we were nice and protected from the rain. I had a crabby dick for the second time as it’s so good I think I will always order it! We also shared one biscuit which was delicious and ample for both of us. Terrific bloody Mary’s too.
Our server was so nice and accommodating. I think her name was Laurie.

I like hawthornes and they have done an awesome job since Covid began with adapting to outdoor dining. I often feel like I end up spending way more than I think I should. Not the best bang for your buck. But the food is good and the vibe is nice — it’s a solid dining option.

Our server Brandon is the best. Have had him on more than one occasion and he always goes out of his way to provide stellar service.

Food is always solid, but easily one of the best outdoor dining spots in the city at the moment (in terms of warmth, ambiance, etc). Good drinks as well.
