    The quesadillas were not good quality chicken meat. Green pepper seem to be the only addition so they were tasteless. The server was very attentive and sweet. The chicken wings were not as good as usual.

    Our server Emma was amazing! She was so cheerful and attentive even though she & one other person were the only waitstaff for the entire restaurant! A smile was on her face any time she came to our table! In addition the food was delicious.

    First time visiting in a long while. I was very pleased with my meal, Buffalo Chicken dip as app, Barbecue burger with bacon, cheese and onions and thin mint ice cream. Service was excellent, attentive and friendly. Surprise was being there for the start of the band which we had not thought playing until 9, but, started at 8 instead. Enjoyed the tune-up song and the first song before leaving even though we were right next to the band and it was very loud! Will be returning soon!

    Ordered off-menu fried oysters entre, fantastic as always! Super generous portion with two sides, a great meal we never find anywhere else. Service was prompt and helpful. We had reserved a high top because tables were not showing as available but tables available on arrival and no issues swapping to table. Love this location.

    Mother's was an amazing place for our annual "get together" this year ! Made an advanced reservation of 6. They kept in contact with me throughout the entire time to ensure we were coming. Waitress was wonderful, making sure our food was great and drinks were full at all times (Very attentive). Our food arrived hot, delicious for our entire table of 6 with no complaints ! Loved the entire atmosphere of the restaurant as I've never been before. Will definitely be back. Thanks Mother's !!

    I reserved a table top so we could be near the band. When we arrived they didn’t show us as a table top and stuck us in a booth with high walls and we could not see the band. The host said when a table top opened she would move us but she never did. Half of our group left as soon as the meal was over I’ll never go back I just wasn’t worth the money and time we spent and to not hear the band

    First let me say, we like Mothers a lot and have been there several time with no complaints. This was an off night of poor service, wrong items and cold food. Saw manager pulled to a few tables for other issues... we just think it was a bad night.

    Had not been to Mother's Peninsula in years, very pleased we returned and hope to make it a regular stop. Fried oysters were fantastic, burgers were good, and crab-based apps were very good, particularly the crab pretzel. Service was outstanding, I cannot say enough good about the friendly service. Being able to reserve a topper table was a fantastic benefit, would not have risked visiting if not for being able to reserve.

    When we were seated for about 3-5 minutes the manager explained our server was busy with other tables and took our drink orders. Our server arrived a few minutes later with our drinks and apologized for the delay. This rarely if ever happens. As most managers are not as attentive to the delays of individual servers. Ive been here before and have waited upto 10 minutes for a server to approach while watching other managers just stand there and not recognize the delay.

    Great burgers and beer selection. As of November 2022, however, they stated they were no longer doing open table reservations. We were still able to get a table no problem though. Just a heads up for anyone looking to book.

    We were very impressed with the food. My husband had the steak and eggs and said it's the first time he has ever been impressed with the steak served in a breakfast dish. It was a good cut of meat cooked perfectly as ordered. My french toast was delicious and I was happy that it wasn't drowning in a sauce as is sometimes done. Drinks (crushes) could have been stronger.

    We were meeting friends in the area and searched for ANYTHING that could seat us asap. Mother’s came up and we decided to try… COLT was our server and he did a fantastic job. He quickly grasped that we had two tired/hungry children with us and was able to get our order out to us quickly, which averted any possible meltdown. He was the best parts of both “hands off” and “attentive”, which can be a hard line to walk as a server. He deserved every penny of his tip… this was a stellar visit that we wouldn’t have thought to try without Open Table!
