For me, going out to dinner is not an everyday occurrence. So when I do, delicious food and good service shouldn't be a high expectation. So Candice, based on my visits (2) & other reviews, why haven't you improved the service? Your food is wonderful-but...More

´Tis a grand day. Candace Rink is one of the best chefs in the Greater Dayton Metropolitan area, and we have greatly enjoyed fine dining at the Hawthorn Grill for years. No question that Candace is a "risk taker," and very soon, Candace will open...More

We stopped here for lunch and again couldn't resist the homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese. Provolone, NY cheddar, feta and mozzarella on rustic bread make a really gooey grilled cheese. I can't believe the cheese contained itself until the sandwich was cut - then...More

My wife and I came in early before a show for dinner. My wife's grilled cheese literally came with one piece of cheese. My $7 soup was what most people would call a cup. While my soup was flavorful, my salad had an odd flavor....More

Thank you for your feedback bcoleman427. I apologize for your excessive wait on Sunday! We were serving our last Sunday brunch (we're changing to Sunday dinner service only starting this Sunday, 4-9pm) so we were quite a bit busier than normal which caused us to...More

The food is very good, but I know the chef can be more adventurous. Unfortunately her clientele asks for more home style food which is very good but not too exiting. In the past few visits I have found a little " modernization" of the...More

Used to lunch at the Hawthorn grill when I was working. Retired now but decided to give it a try for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. Menu offers a decent selection and the prices will not break you up. Will definitely go back.
