    Food is outstanding. Great scratch kitchen for the most part. Only complaint is they used to have the most delicious fresh cut French fries in the entire area. Now they have standard frozen fries that you can get anywhere and don’t taste so great.

    We stopped in on our way to a comedy show and had dinner around 5pm on a sat evening... the place was fairly busy, but we were seated immediately... the server was very attentive, and the food came out fast... the crabcake sandwich was the size of a baseball and was mostly lump meat... my Cuban sandwich was delicious as well... it costs around 50.00 for both of us with drinks ... great place, I wish it was closer, we'd be there all the time !

    Food was excellent as always. We started with nachos and cream of crab soup. Their cream of crab soup is the best in the area. For entrees we had chicken and waffles and from their specials menu, Queen Chops (lamb chops). Both were very good. Did I mention that their cream of crab soup is excellent and the best in the area!

    Other than the music being way too loud, everything else was good. I had the shrimp salad sandwich and my husband had the cream of crab soup and a hamburger. We enjoyed our food and the service was good.

    We were never seated for our reservation. Their website directs reservations to Open Table, with no option to request patio seating. Upon arrival 45 minutes early for the reservation, we were directed to the patio hostess. The patio area was total confusion due to a private party running late. Despite this we were assured that we would be contacted with a table in the area. This never occurred. They need to add instructions to the website to inform customers to make a reservation and call the restaurant to the confirm patio seating. The whole experience was totally unacceptable. I’m sure the restaurant couldn’t care less about one customer who was not happy with their service as the restaurant was full.

    We sat outside, under a 30-foot roof, but with fresh air. The service was superb and we felt welcome, valued, and relaxed. There are many items of interest on the menu, so looking forward to a return trip (or trips).

    Mother's is an expensive option for a sports bar, both for food and drinks. They're recently started charging for paying with a credit card.

    We enjoyed the atmosphere and the layout of the place. Most of our food was good with exception of the chicken waffles. The chicken was very dry and tough. We could not eat parts of it. We have been to the Morhers in Baltimore and really enjoyed our food. There was definitely a difference in the quality of the food between the two places. We would go back and try again though.

    The food was good and the service was OK. However, the noise level in the restaurant made it impossible to carry on a normal conversation at the table . When we first sat down all we could hear was the individuals at the table next to us and the music. When the waitress came to the table we had hard time hearing her and she had a hard time hearing us. Almost everything had to be repeated twice. This was our second time trying Mother’s Grill and will not go back because of the noise level, especially when there are a number of other good restaurants in the area.

    Food and service was excellent I had jerked chicken fingers and Greek salad my guest had classic smash burger with fried onions and sautéed mushrooms and a side Caesar salad. Waitress was very attentive with a great personality. Great place for hanging out on a Friday or Saturday with friends. Ambiance was that of sports bar or grill. The noise level reflected the same. Could have a descent conversation without yelling at one another. Would definitely return again. The menu lends to a great variety.

    We had an enjoyable brunch Sunday at Mothers. We were greeted by the owner which was nice and then taken to our table. We started with amazing Bloody Mary’s. The menu is huge but we finally settled on a couple of items from the Brunch menu. Our server Gavin was helpful and attentive; he gave information when asked. He apologized for the slow kitchen and periodically checked on us after we got our orders. It was pajama day which was fun. Diners wearing pajamas had their tabs reduced by half. Our food was good, service was great. We will definitely return.

    Had a crabcake sandwich. It was very good. Wasn’t that crazy about the sweet potato fries. Service was good. It was a bit noisy in the restaurant on a Saturday night at 7 o’clock. The outside area was closed for a party. Tried the peach cobbler which we didn’t particularly like.  will eat there again.

    Our server was friendly but way too stretched between all of the tables to provide good service - drinks not refilled, didn't check in regarding order correctness. Since I'm the one writing the review, I get to address my dissatisfaction. I ordered a sandwich that normally comes with chipotle mayo. Having had it before, and not liking it at all, I told our server when ordering that I did not want the chipotle mayo but wanted plain mayo. When the order was brought out, there was a small cup of mayo on the side, but the chipotle mayo was slathered all over the toasted bread, on the lettuce, turkey and bacon. Since we couldn't track our server, I just scraped off as much as I could but the flavor was still there - very disappointing. Most likely a kitchen error, but, really, how hard is it to leave off a specifically requested ingredient?

    Food and server were great. Our food arrived at separate time because when the ticket was put in with the kitchen they split it up, this sucked because 1 person was done eating while we were just getting our food.

    Diverse tasty bar food menu. Beware of what you are getting in terms of events there. Trivia night, live entertainers, open karaoke mike night. Check before you go if those aren't your things. I had the pleasure of sitting at the one table where you could see into the bathroom every time the door opened which was a little ick. Maybe a screen or don't have the table there.
