Great Saturday brunch spot. Awesome beer selections. Food was just what we were looking for. Music selection was on point!!! Real wood fire blazing on a damp dreary day. Can’t wait to go back!!

My daughter lives in the city and invited my family in for a day to have lunch and hang out. The brunch we had at Hawthornes was one of the highlights of the day. Fantastic food, great choices and one of my favorite things was the music that they had playing in the background (great music, but at the right volume too). I would recommend Hawthornes as a great dining experience in a great part of the city. Also, parking was easy too. Two emphatic thumbs up!

We were a table of 8 & they accommodated us nicely. Our waiter didn’t listen very well or it was too noisy b/c we asked for cream & sugar for coffee numerous times with no response. One mug had lipstick still on it. The food was delish & the prices were fair for brunch. Work on the details, it’s the little things that make a difference.

Nice place, in the neighborhood that we really want to love. The food generally ends up being disappointing, relative to the ambiance and appeal of the people and room. I’ll be back but am going in with very modest expectations for a surprisingly good meal.

The service was terrible. I ordered a breakfast sandwich...... It came out without any cheese. I asked the waiter for a slice and the waiter responded, "Oh we don't put cheese on it unless you ask for it." Um, the menu says: Breakfast Sandwich - Two Extra Large Fried Eggs & Sharp Cheddar on your Choice of Bagel, Artisan Brioche or Ciabatta Served with Homefries. Apparently he could not read. Or was new and was ignorant. #knowthemenu The service was otherwise slow. However, the mimosas were delicious. I won't be back.

Good lunch or brunch spot. Sandwich and salad were fresh and well presented. Homemade chips tasted a little old. Service staff was friendly, could have been a bit more attentive especially since the restaurant was not crowded. Would revisit in the future.

This spot was really laidback on a rainy Thursday morning. We had reservations but really didn't need them. The spot was quiet, the staff was friendly, and the cinnamon swirl pancake was yummy. The breakfast sandwiches "sammies" were also impressive.

While the good was incredible, the service is what really made Hawthorne's stand apart! I wish I had caught his name, but our server really went above and beyond. We ended up getting stood up by the rest of party and then we had some ordering issues and he took it all in stride and never made us feel bad about it at all! He's the epitome of what great service should be! Thank you!!!

We were a *little* disappointed the steak and frites were off the menu, but with SO many other delicious items (brined pork chop!), it was easier to get over it... Not to mention the great tap selections and bottle 'fridge!

The food at Hawthorne’s was very tasty and accommodating to a gluten allergy in the party. The service however was lacking. Meals arrived at the table at very disjointed times, we ordered additional drinks during the meal and unfortunately never received them. The ambiance and overall vibe of the place was fantastic in contrast to the service!

Neighborhood, cozy, comfy feel with great food. The staff could not be more lovely and accommodating. I wish I lived closer to frequent more often. The real wood burning fireplaces added that extra bit of hominess on the very cold day we were there. Everything our group of 3 had was exceptional!!

I've been here before and tonight I was quite dissatisfied. One server for the entire restaurant, food quality wasn't up to par at all and just lack of care from a service stand point. From the mac & cheese, mussels, pork chop & the salmon no good! We couldn't even finish our meal. There was food left over from each & every dish. We were still hungry but we're too disappointed to order anything else(not worth the carbs or money). We did enjoy the beer, Christmas decor & the ambience but not enough to return.

Hawthorne's boasts an interesting 'self-service' beer/wine/cider option, that offers customers a wide variety of alcoholic choices to stay or to go. This supplements an interesting selection of on-tap beer and cocktails. The risotto was delicious, though the Asian salad was just ok and a bit bland. Happy hour options looked great, but sadly, we arrived after happy hour ended. Cute outdoor dining space is perfect for a fall evening--and right near Philadelphia Magic Gardens, too.

Good at Hawthorne's was great as usual. Our server was very unfriendly and seemed completely uninterested in us, despite the fact that the restaurant was empty on a Tuesday night and we were a party of 8. He could have gotten a much better tip from a table full of service industry customers!

I love the food and atmosphere at this great neighborhood gem called Hawthornes. But what makes it even more special is when we have the opportunity to see Susan. The rare times she is there to welcome us always make our evening even better with her wit, humor and lovely energy. I have dined here often and hope to return many times. <3 u Hawthornes

One of our go-to places in our neighborhood. Great ambience. Casual comfort that still takes great pride in their food. I ordered a dinner salad and the only complaint was that the dressing was applied quite heavily. Overall a great meal and great place to catch up with friends.
