I had the turkey and brie sandwich on multigrain bread. It was delicious! Our server was great and did not rush us at all. Our group of three longtime friends had a lot to catch up on.

Hawthorne’s is a lot of fun. We love the server Joe and the food is incredible. It’s interesting because there’s something different every time. Great family place and also fun for dates. Parking around there is also pretty easy.

We're delighted to be hosting events on the following dates;

Historic, bucolic setting. Sat on the porch. I ordered the buttermilk dipped fried chicken with some spicy sauce and pickles. It was divine! And the side salad had the best vinaigrette dressing. Wish I asked for the recipe.

About the restaurant
Situated at the entrance gate to Philadelphia's historic Navy Yard, an old gatehouse houses this lively yet laidback eatery featuring a large outdoor patio and beer garden. Boasting happy hour specials and shareable plates, lunch specials and a full dinner menu, Gatehouse is the ideal spot to enjoy a few light bites and beverages or sit down to a flavorful meal. It's proximity to event and sporting venues also makes it the perfect stop before a concert or game.

About the restaurant
In Riva is the first venture by Philadelphia-born chef Arthur Cavaliere who has combined the similarities of his two favorite cities—Naples and Philadelphia—to deliver an unparalleled culinary experience. Sticking with the Italian translation of its name, In Riva is located "along the banks" of the Schuylkill River in East Falls.

In Riva is a Southern Italian inspired restaurant with urban flair, specializing in Napoletana style pizza, house-made pasta and contemporary antipasti. In Riva also offers an eclectic array of new and old world wines, Italian craft beers and racy specialty cocktails.

My family loves In Riva but I was a tad concerned it might be a little 'young' for my 80something mom. If anything, she loved it even more than the rest of us, which is saying quite something! (Mind you, it was only 5pm, so nowhere near as loud as it can get). Everything from the salads, to the pizza and pasta, to the olive oil potatoes, to the branzino, eggplant milanese, to the tiramisu were absolutely delicious. Service was fast and friendly, too, without being the least bit rushed. My mom was especially impressed not only with the white wine (vermentino) but that they would let her have a half-glass the second time around, which was the perfect amount. She'll be talking about that dinner for a long time to come, and we'll all be back soon!

The service was slow, but it looked like it was one waitress for the whole outdoor seating. The food was good but the fries were cold. The atmosphere was nice. The price was a little high for burgers and chicken sandwich.
