    My spouse and I went in for dinner Sunday night around 6. We are not just regulars, but pre-pandemic regulars; not just pre-pandemic regulars, but pre-fire regulars. Hawthorne’s has been our neighborhood go-to for good food and friendly service at a fair price-point. We got sat and then ignored for the remainder of the ~15 minutes we stayed, without so much as a glass of water. This, while the staff rolled silverware, danced with each other to the Go-Go’s, and took selfies. One might think, “Well, you should be more patient.” In other contexts, I might agree. However, there were merely two other parties sat in the entire restaurant. They were not busy. Given we know the management they should feel free to reach out to me if they want to discuss our experience because it pained me to leave.

    We loved our visit to Hawthornes, where we went for brunch after the Philadelphia Marathon. The service was attentive and prompt, the menu was varied, the food was good, and the prices were great. The list of drinks and beers was varied. All meant we'll come back to Hawthornes.

    There were many drink choices- I chose the expresso martini, which was good. The Crabby Dick was delicious! I like that they serve "Brekkie" (breakfast) all day. The server was excellent, friendly, and knowledgeable about the drinks and menu. Her recommendation of the Salted Caramel Brownie was much appreciated! Delicious!

    We sat outside in a booth. Service was a little slow and matter of fact. Never felt rushed. Food was ok, grilled cheese sandwiches were burnt; however, someone came out and offered to redo them. We did not take them up on the offer because of the wait time. We did not want to hold up the table or have half of the table eating while two of us waited for our food to be redone. The restaurant did take something off the bill which as very nice of them to do. We will go back and recommend the restaurant to others.

    Very fun spot for outdoor brunch even on a rainy day. Everyone enjoyed their meal from the crabby dick to the pumpkin waffle with fried chicken and cole slaw. Great service! We weren’t rushed and I enjoy that!!

    The dinner menu is less than what it was pre-covid. It now consists of simple bar food, comfort food, a lot of deep fried items. Noise level is high and service adequate. But, in spite of pervasive mediocrity, WAY OVER PRICED!

    Came here for a 9:30 breakfast/brunch. Choose indoor seating and the food and drinks were really good. This place is very consistent too. Only problem was the later crises showing up with babies and having the occasional screams of children. I will reserve again for any time of day too.

    We sat outside in the enclosed patio and unfortunately it was stifling in there . We requested out door seating and would have preferred a picnic table but we’re sent to the side . It was too hot to enjoy anything beside the ice . The service was phenomal though !

    I got the chicken and waffles the chicken was bland and the waffles were spongy. The server took forever to come greet us. It’s dog friendly but one of the customers had a huge dog that was super aggressive, every time someone walked by the dog was growling and foaming at the mouth trying to get to them. It was very uncomfortable.
