For those looking for a place where everyone knows their name, look no further than Hawthorne Inn in Labadie. For 14 years, the restaurant has been providing a second-home atmosphere for the community where on any given day workers from the nearby Labadie Power Plant might be seen sharing friendly conversation with a couple of Red Hat Ladies. It simply is just the type of place that makes everyone feel welcome. Hawthorne Inn is a family-owned and operated business, owned by Cathy and Chris Hancock and friend Dick Hoey.
American/Italian cuisine is offered in a casual atmosphere. The dinner menu includes hand-trimmed steaks, fresh fish, a variety of pastas and sauces, and a childrens menu. Everything is made to order to ensure the utmost freshness and quality. Dinners are priced between $12 and $20.
An extensive wine list includes Missouri, California and international wines as well as a large selection of domestic and imported beers. Lunch is also served at Hawthorne Inn and has a bit of a flair for the dramatic. The lunch menu includes salad and sandwiches alongside American thin crust pizzas including the killer Labadie Locomotive Pizza topped with meatballs, sausage, onions, pepperoni and pepperoncini peppers.
The locomotive theme expands beyond the creatively titled pizza. A mural that sits behind the three-story bar depicts the history of this old railroad town. The painting was done by local artist Bryan Haynes.
Group carry-outs, to-go menus and full catering are also available. Everyone is invited to come in and relax at Hawthorne Inn.
