Cool LOCAL spot

After a successful day at work I asked my client where I could take him and his team to eat. The place was packed and lively with young professionals but the staff had a table waiting for us. Service was a tad slow but understandable based on how busy they were. If you want local flavor go here.

Just got into town and desk at Holiday Inn suggested Mother's which was a short walk away and we wanted alittle exercise after a long drive. There was no desk inside the door and we stood there a few minutes before a man behind the bar advised the host would be a few moments. We were seated by a very... More

Very poor reservation and communication....Made reservation for 8:00 PM on a Sunday evening for 11 people...OK, that's a large group - but 8:00 on Sunday, shouldn't be to much of a problem, right? But it was. At arrival, we were told a previous large group was still at the table, "..it would be another 5-10 minutes before we would be... More

This restaurant was simply scrumptious! The stuffed banana pepper appetizer was awesome! The duck was fantastic and the lamb chops were delicious and cooked to perfection! They have an awesome wine list with great prices! The patio area is a very nice touch!!

We got into town late and were looking for a place to have dinner. This was the only restaurant near our hotel that was still serving food. The place was nice, but the service was slow and the food was blah. Not terrible, but not much flavor. Our server was quick to bring drinks, but the food took a long... More

My fiancé and I decided to dine at Mothers based on the reviews we read on trip advisor and it did not disappoint! From the atmosphere and service to the wine and food everything was an A+. A must when in the area!

We went to Mother's upon the recommendation from a well-travelled friend. Otherwise we would not able to find this restaurant located in a back alley typed street, nor will we go in even we walk past it because it looks like a biker gang's hangout from its outside appearance. But look is deceiving. Inside a small building, half of it... More

I wasn't sure if I wanted to walk into the place from the street. Glad I did. The specials of the day are photocopies of a page from a legal pad in the chef's handwriting. Felt like I was part of the family. Steaks were excellent!!

Mother's is a small place, so I would recommend you get reservations for dinner first and foremost. It was my first time and the food was great as was the service. It's a small, romantic atmosphere inside and there is a decent sized patio as well for the summer. It was a great experience and will be going back for... More

Mother's restaurant is off the beaten path a bit, down a rather dark street, but it's definitely worth checking out if you like a lively bar, good music, and delicious food. The place was one of the hi lights of my trip.
