The mall is really becoming more upscale and I was just at the AMC theatre that was added. I don't go often as I don't think there is enough to attract me there, to spend hours inside shopping. When I use to go to Sears often, I find I go to the big Box stores instead. Since Fields became Macy's,... More

I visited recently to pick-up a purchase that my wife had made online. And the mall still looks to be in good shape (clean and well maintained) but I do wonder about its future. Sears, JCP, Carson's, and Macy's are the "anchor" tenants and in the current era where Amazon (and others) are killing brick-and-mortar retail in a wholesale way,... More

Hawthorn Mall is a convenient shopping center for Lake County. They've done a nice job with the recent updates to the exterior and addition of the movie theater and more dining options. Claim Company and Dave & Busters are family favorites. The mall hosts a variety of events that cater to kids. Highlights include the holidays with Santa and the... More

Upgrades make it nicer than it use to be. Hope there is more to come. I rarely venture out into the actual mall. Recent restaurant upgrades and movie theater attract more people than it use to.

Hawthrone mall is definitely improving. The two new additions that are the best by far are the AMC theater. Talk about luxury. I won't go to another theater. You have reserved so no need to rush. The seats are the type you see in home theaters. They do recline all the way and there is enough room if you have... More

Hawthorn Mall is a very nice mall. They've somewhat recently renovated it, making the dining hall and the rest of the mall very nice. This mall is one of the better ones to go shopping for clothes, or whatever else you might need (or want). They have a large variety of stores and very few are ever vacant, unlike many... More

I've been here several times but this is the first review. This mall is easy to navigate and clean! It's not super sized and has all the usually stores plus local shops. It's my go to mall close to home and lots of smiling faces which is rare!

The mall is currently anchored by Sears, Penney's, Macy's, and Carson's. The shopping area has a two-level layout and is easy to navigate. There is a food court on the second level with the usual offerings. But there is also a unique business -- a lovely french bakery which has monastery-crafted goodies (including honey) from the St. Roger Abbey. The... More

Lots of new updates to mall. Usual anchors of Sears, Penny's, Carsons and Macy's. Best are new restaurants like Maggiano's and Smashburger. Dave and Buster is a new fun place and a new fancy showplace.
