Service was fast, friendly and courteous. Food was good, not great, but no complaints. Lots of beer selections. This is a friendly neighborhood pub that is in walking distance of the ball park, convention center and waterfront. When I find myself in town again, Mother's will be on my list of places to stop in for a spell.

6 of us met at Mother's for beers and pub food. Mother's offers a good balance between bar and restaurant. The food is not fussy but very good. The food is mostly homemade and of good quality. There were plenty of burgers and sandwiches to choose from, as well as a pretty good beer selection. The staff was very friendly and the service was prompt. I would go back again to start a night out.

The food was so delicious and really was comfort food just like "Mother" would make. The staff was very friendly, oh so nice and attentive. My Husband and I went here during Restaurant Week for a "date night" while my Mom kept our Baby Boy. Not only did they have one of the best Restaurant Week deals around but we loved it and will definitely be back. :)

Have not been to Mother's restaurant for some time. However, went for dinner and had a great time. The server and overall
service was great. The food and drinks were served in a timely manner and both were very good. Will be returning soon.

Seemed very busy the night of our visit due to a TV show filming on location, so it took a while for our server to return after delivering our drinks. She was very sweet though and our meal came fast and was very good. We''ll return!

Downstairs we found that the noise level was way too loud to even hang out in there. It was noticeably uncomfortable. But since we had 8 people, we were set up upstairs and had the room to ourselves, including the big screen tv. And our waiter Brent, was fantastic. The wings tasted very similar, so that was a disappointment. We also tried the special ice cream of the day and that also was sub par. But it was a fun place and worth going back.

I dined here on New Years Eve. Trying to find parking was hectic and I called the restaurant to let them know I would be late. We ended up being 30 minutes late. The restaurant was very understanding about the situation being New Years Eve.

Unfortunately, we looked at the menu and then left. It was pub grub and not the caliber of restaurant we had hoped for when booking. Nothing on anyone's plate looked at all appetizing or even smelled good.

We stopped here while passing through Baltimore on I-95; easy access from I-95 & convenient parking garage nearby. The entrance opens up into a loud bar. We sat in the back, where it was quieter. The food we had included chilli, charred black pepper tuna salad, crab cakes, and deserts. Very tasty comfort food. Would come here again.

Mother's Federal Hill Grill may not look like much, but it has very good food. There is an extensive menu with daily deals and specials. For this lunch, we ordered from the specials that included an orange roughy sandwich and a crab quiche. Both choices were well-prepared and satisfying. Service was very friendly.

My friend and I truly enjoyed the restaurant week menu this past Thursday. I indulged in calamari, a jumbo lump crab cake, mashed potatoes with loaded butter, chipotle Mac n cheese, and bread pudding. Not to mention drafts of Sam Adams Seasonal. Great evening!
