Lovely old home turned into a restaurant. Nice and cozy in the inside. They do have a few outside tables. We ordered the special per the recommendation of the server. It was the BLT with side salad and a wedge of watermelon. The server raved about the BLT special, that it was the best ever with homegrown tomatoes. It was... More

Ate here for lunch and was not impressed with the lack of vegetarian choices. I was looking forward to trying the Celery Seed dressing...it seemed to have good flavor but it watered down the salad. Weird. My DH liked his burger and my SIL liked the Cordon Bleu. Our waitress was nice but a little slow. Not her fault we... More

Why is this place rated # 45, when it is certainly in the top 5 in St. Charles. Just like eating in your great grandmothers parlor. Antique decor, wonderful wait staff who rave about the owner ( how often do you hear that ) and very good food. Variety of salads and sandwiches. Excellent entrees. Have eaten here 3 times... More

We went for lunch on a weekday at noon. There weren't many others at that time, but there were several diners by the time we left. We both had the lunch special: quiche. The portions were large - almost a quarter of quiche each. It came with a large slice of watermelon. I got the house salad as my side... More

I looked internet-wide for a unique-quaint place to eat our family of 3 Easter dinner. We decided since the temperature was 77 degrees we would fore-go the tables linen cover and eat efresco. What a treat. Greeted by the owner, Donna, what a gem. Yes, the blueberry muffins were outta this world! Even though Donna advised to put lots of... More

Donna, our 'culinary angel' is a marvel to behold! Adding 'class' sans snobbery to this historic district, she and the waiter, Shea, welcomed us into their 'home' with gracious attention to our comfort. The evening menu was easy to decipher and the prices fair; $4 appetizers, $6 desserts, $11 sandwiches and $22 entrees, all ample portions (hamburger patty was 1/3... More

This place reminded me of an antique living room. It seemed dated and borderline shabby, but, interestingly enough, it added to the experience. It felt as if we were eating with the mother-in-law, Marie, from Everybody Loves Raymond. HAHAHA. There was a petite older lady pouring coffee and checking on everyone with those cute glasses perched on her nose. It... More

Amazing how many St Charles places close by 7 or 8pm but this spot was open and truly happy to see us. Service was attentive and knowledgable. The warm complementary muffin was delicious as a starter. But don't be a pig by asking for more freebies. Let's face they are there to make a profit on their entrees. In the... More

Not sure if a lot of people are aware of this but on the lower level of the Mother in Law House is a great place to have a private party or small wedding. There is a bar and seating for about 75 people. It was a lovely setting . Donna was wonderful and accommodating and made our day very... More

We have lived in St Charles for 25 years, and have been coming to The Mother In Laws Restaurant since we moved here. The food has always been top notch, and the service great. We enjoy the different salads that the owner Donna serves on the salad bar, they are not your typical salad bar items. She brings around blueberry... More
