Have been to Hawthornes twice now. The tap selection here is interesting enough. The bottle selection did not really excite me though. After stocking up at Bella Vista Dist. across the street, I may have been a bit jaded. On our first visit it seemed too crowded to wait to eat, but we did wait on our second visit.

We waited on the comfy couch by the fireplace, with draft beer in had. The place is lively and really cute. We did not have to wait that long to be seated. We ordered brunch and we all enjoyed our meals. The server was friendly and knew the menu. Overall, we all really liked it and agreed we would return on a future visit.

A: Very busy at about 1pm when we showed up on a holiday Monday. Most folks sitting at tables enjoying lunch, but a few browsing the large beer selection in the fridges at the back.

Q: Lots of hard to find beers in several fridges at the back. Also some on tap. Very high quality selection both in bottles and on tap.

S: Service was great. Multiple employees asked if we needed help and offered us samples of what they had on tap. Once seated, our waitress was very attentive and friendly.

S: Great selection, as mentioned above in Quality.

F: Food was very good. Just had a quick burger with fries for lunch, which went very nicely with the beers we chose.

V: Nothing special here. Not expensive, not cheap. About what you'd expect from a craft beer establishment.

This place is excellent. I would go as far as saying they have the best brunch in the city. The staff is amazing, attentive and super friendly. You can sample beer while waiting for your table. If you frequent Hawthorne's they remember your beer preferences. The draft list changes frequently and the bottle list is very impressive. The food is also outstanding. They feature very interesting specials and also some amazing comfort food. This is a fine place to go for any occasion and I highly recommend it.
