Service was attentive and the meals were delicious!
Things I liked about my experience was the service. Prompt and attentive.
Our food was just ok. Nachos came out half burnt. Eatable but not on point.
Ambience was not so great. They use bright day light bulbs in their spot lights that hang from the ceiling and point towards the booths and tables in the dining area. It’s as if you are eating in a school cafeteria at night. We kinda had to squint while we were in there. But some areas, especially the bar area, it’s less bright and they use the warm light bulbs on those spot lights. That would be more ideal for the dining area as well. Not saying it has to be super dark because obviously it’s an upbeat restaurant. Just gentle on eyes. There are already TVs and other subtle things that light up the place.
There's a reason I am a repeat customer. The food, beverages and service are always very good, as is the atmosphere.
Good was great!
Food was great!
We had a large group (4 kids and 8 adults). 4 of us ordered soup and had to track the server down to get it after 45 min. The rest of the food came out after an hour or so from the time we ordered. Everything was delicious as always and my daughter who has a dietary restriction had no issues with her meal. The only complaint was how slow service was.
Good food great service
At Mother's we always find a range of choices and enjoy the quality of our food
Our server, Janeice, was delightful, efficient, and attentive.
Keep up the good work!Stan/Lynn Brull
The menu is terrific and the food was fine. We had a very nice server. The noise level inside was very high and the place was only half full. We would go back, but only if we could sit outside.
Great, fun bar! Live music!
Have eaten at Mothers several times. Food and Service Good. A very lively bar scene and live music was loud. Only complaint I ordered a Bourbon Manhattan, and received only a shot of bourbon and a cherry. Need to improve on one of the most called for cocktails.
We had good burgers and service at this restaurant.
They have a nice outdoor patio area.
The food portions are large.
Wonderful turkey dinner meal. Thank you! Excellent waitress also!
Very good dinner. My burger was cooked a little longer than I prefer but it was still excellent. Caesar salad was very good.
Very noisy. Food is always good. Service was OK but they seemed to need more help.
Went to Mother's for a late night Graduation celebration. Was worried we would be rushed out because we arrived 1 hour before closing. This was not the case at all. The waitress was super patient and friendly and didn't place any time constraints on our party. Food was delicious and worth every dime.
A big thank you to Janiece for all her help. Great place for breakfast too.
Great meals and fun atmosphere. Thank you!
The food was excellent but it took a very long time to get our food. The restaurant wasn’t very busy and we were ready to find our server to see what the delay was. We waited at least 45 min, likely closer to an hour, for our meal.
The music was too loud which made the restaurant very noisy.
The waitstaff apparently forgot about us at first and I had to notify your manager. The situation was quickly and effectively corrected. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely return.
Always a good meal at Mother’s. Live music is nice as well.
Our waiter was amazing! The food was really good too! My husband and I both tried different burgers. We love a good burger! The best part of the meal for me was dessert! I was really full but had to try the bread pudding beignets! AMAZING!
The only reason service received a 4/5 is because our server gave herself more tip than what we wrote on the ticket. Otherwise it’s always a great experience.
Place is great and I'm hard to impress all the side items were amazing I didn't think there was much flavor in the beef for the French dip, but the texture was great the dip was amazing everything hand made a little pricey but worth it like this place, great food clean place friendly employees pretty damn good in my opinion
Dined at this location on a weekend and was able to take advantage of the brunch menu. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect for the whole family to enjoy.
Next time I’ll bring a designated driver and take advantage of the unlimited Mimosas!
Food is always fantastic. Great selection. Can be a bit loud with live bands or trivia night.
Attended on a Sunday, late afternoon. Not busy yet. Service was great. Many tv’s with every Sunday sporting event, but it was quiet and we were able to enjoy our conversation around a large table - no shouting necessary. Food was very good. Fried green tomatoes, salads, crab/cream of crab soups and burgers were all cooked well and very tasty. Definitely looking forward to another visit, even though it’s about a 40 minute drive from my house.
We recently moved to the neighborhood so my wife and I decided to give it a try ... it always seems to be crowded and got good reviews. The good news is the burgers are quite good; cooked exactly to order, fresh and tasty. The menu has a lot of variety. The bad news is the service. First, having an OpenTable reservation means nothing. We arrived on time and waited a full 15-20 minutes for our table ... we, along with our reservation, were simply put into the queue along with everyone else who walked in. In addition, the reception staff was not particularly friendly, helpful or communicative. Our server, while pleasant, seemed overwhelmed, running from table to table, but did make an effort to check back with us periodically. And finally, it took quite a long time for our order to be cooked and brought to the table; almost 30 minutes for burgers ... this a place that serves bar food ... it's not fine dining.
Place was half empty yet ran out of menus and coffee mugs. Took 15 minutes to get water. Took longer than that to get coffee. In paper cup. Food decent.
We tried North Grille for one reason-to order the chicken pot pie. However, we were informed that the oven wasn't working and could not have that entrée. We had to order something else. While the food was good, we were still disappointed. Also, the music was being played much too loud-hard to have a conversation.
You all by far have the best Restaurant Week menu this year. It is above and beyond. Staff is on point too
Service was great! Food...I had the grilled pork chop that was the special. It taste like it was burnt. The wings and chicken finger appetizers we had where perfect! The entrees left a lot to be desired.
Crab dip was excellent. Fish and chips well portioned, but fish was a bit greasy. Raven wings were good. Overall, not the best but worth another visit.
As I've said before, Mother's North is always reliable. This time, we were given a table in a corner of the restaurant. Although it was big enough for my group it was uncomfortable. The staff listened to our complaint and immediately sat us elsewhere that was a better fit for us. Kudos to the Mother's staff!
Rachel was an outstanding server!
Love Mother's North - scratch kitchen and great people!
