Such a cute location with a nice bar area and a lovely outside patio. We were able to be seated on the patio and even though all the tables were full, it was not loud and could definitely have a comfortable conversation. The stuffed banana peppers were outstanding! All of our entrees were delicious and plentiful. The only criticism is... More

This was the FIRST time we walked from our hotel to the fancy Italian place, only to find it closed. Feeling a bit sheepish, we walked down a side street and came by Mother's, with people sitting outside having a great time. Thanks to my TripAdvisor app, we discovered this would be a winner and it was! Hubby had steak,... More

Waiter service was great...food was ok, nothing special for the price. I would however recommend the escargot appetizer if that's your thing. Great location and ambiance, would be back for bar service but prob not for dinner

But everything else was wonderful , the bar is very comfortable and friendly, the food was great not one of us had any complaints, the duck... More

A great discovery close to BestWestern and Holiday on Delaware near Allen. Hidden somewhat on an alley type street. Good effort on the bar area - very inviting. Interesting choices on the menu and reasonable wine prices. Friendly and helpful staff in explaining some menu items. The food was good. I'd go back for sure - they have a side... More

My husband and I went to Mothers on a whim for a casual Saturday out. We went at about 8pm and the dining room was packed and we ended up waiting about 50 minutes for a table. We had a couple drinks at the bar while we waited. Once we were seated we ordered the stuffed banana peppers for an... More

Interior of historic, small building is decorated in a tasteful, understated way. Had a good steak, and good wedge salad. Wine list is solid, and not pricey. Bar area looks like a cool place to hang out.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, and we loved it. It was busy, but not overcrowded for a weeknight. Beautiful stone walls, warm decor. Service was fantastic and attentive, and the food was great. I would definitely go here again when we are in Buffalo.

Our group of six went to Mother's for a pre-Sabres game meal. When we told our server of our time constraints, he made sure we were served in a comfortable time frame but quickly enough to get to the stadium before puck-drop. The best meals were the meatloaf (believe the hype), the stuffed chicken and the tuna. My scallops with... More
