“Charming and delicious ”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Visited here on a Sunday morning . They open at 11. We arrived about 11:30. Very pleasant hostess . Nice menu reasonably priced and large portions served! We had Hawthorne hoagie and blue cheese burger, with bruschetta as an appetizer. The blue cheese burger had lots of blue
Cheese ! We had sweet potato fries( that was a very large portion) and coleslaw as sides. The coleslaw had quite a horseradish kick to it! The bruschetta was served with warm crostini . Very good flavor. All of the staff were very nice, with one exception. There was a young early 20s looking female employee sitting at a high top bar table when we were seated. It was a little before the lung crowd was arriving. She was busy on her cell phone. An old couple ( probably 90ish) shuffled in past her and the gentleman said "hello" as he walked by and was seated. She looked up at him and made a face like"why are you talking to me" and didnt even acknowledge him with a hello. What a shame to see him treats this way! It hurt me to see this.

“Excellent food, price, service”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

Went to a national dog show and was recommended this restaurant by our maintenance man at our motel (Travelodge) who had gone there with his wife. My girlfriends and me agreed, the Hawthorne was the best restaurant around this area, close to Purina Farms and a very nice casual pub like atmosphere. The food is well prepared, the rythm at the table excellent, it's pure American service by very good waitresses. Prices made a lot of sense too! This is why we went there 3 times in the 5 days we were in Gray Summit. Recommended!

“VERY GOOD FOOD & RUSTIC ATMOSPHERE”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

I have eaten here 3-4 times now over a 3-year span. The drinks have always been good, and the food very good and well prepared. This is the BEST restaurant near Purina Farms (where there is nothing). The menu offers a sufficient variety for most all tastes. I have had salads, fish, steak, etc.--all good. The only issue is service if they get extremely busy; it can be a little slow. I don't think they maintain a huge staff all the time, so when there are events at Purina, they fill up & have a bit of difficulty handling the crowds.

“Worth the weekend drive for great food and friendly service.”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

You can not order wrong here. Everything is fantastic. The hawthorn salad is my favorite and my husband loves the buffalo chicken salad. All meals come with signature garlic toast and the wines are great and the tea is perfect.
