First time here and my wife and I were a bit worried about some of the reviews. All was very good. We tried the shrimp fritters and they were great. Two of us had duck and the duck was very good and the rice side...More

We have always loved it here- especially the patio- but our last visit was a bust. We ordered a dish that was served to us missing a main ingredient (in this case, peas!) When we asked our server about it, she went back to the...More

My dad and I had just watched the Bob Seger concert in Buffalo and were looking for a good meal afterwards. Luckily for us Mother’s is open until 4am. My dad had the meatloaf and I had the pan seared scallops. It was amazing! Although...More

Awesome steak at 2am in Buffalo? Would have never expected it but thoroughly enjoyed it! Also, the Brie artichoke dip is not to be missed, and I really like the idea of featured wine - mine was delicious!

We had been there years ago and enjoyed it but this visit was a disappointment. Super slow service. Slow water, slow bread, slow drinks.....everything. The appetizers were okay (oysters not served on ice bed). Halibut recommended by waitress had a weird “crust” which was actually...More

We dined on the patio. Wednesday night. No reservations, no wait. Score for us! Apps, dinner, drinks & ambience suited us perfectly. I wondered if we'd be underdressed, but nice casual was just fine. The evening couldn't have been more relaxing. Ribeye and salmon entrees...More

Visited Buffalo twice in one month and returned to this restaurant because of it's diverse menu and cozy environment. Service was great both times.

For midnight snack (at11pm) we went to Mother’s restaurant for some chicken wings. They have one of the best Buffalo chicken wings anywhere, according to my husband “The Best”, in Buffalo it’s a must. It is not as “Hot” (spicy) as we like it but...More
