We've dined at the Hawthorne Inn in the past and have had wonderful experiences...until our visit this summer. Although the restaurant was not crowded, we waited for quite some time prior to being seated (or acknowledged), and we may have waited even longer had we not flagged down the bartender for assistance.
Once in the restaurant, the service was efficient and friendly, but the food was just OK-- some items were very good, some were just average.
As an aside, the Hawthorne Inn allows smoking at the bar, which is not an issue towards the back of the restaurant, but definitely noticeable in the middle and front areas of the dining room.
All in all, we love the charming town of Labadie, but will likely explore Washington for dining options next time.
