    We were able to have table near the window for my friends visiting from out of town. Our server, Lindsey, was very friendly. She helped guide me through the menu with my diet restrictions. The came out quickly and hot. It was very delicious. We stayed a bit longer after our meal to hang out and talk. She still offered us more coffee refills. And my friends bought a souvenir tshirt and they were helpful getting them the correct size.

    I got a call from the manager a couple hours before our dinner reservation. Apparently, Mother’s had left it’s reservations open on Open Table accidentally on the night of a home Sunday Night Football game (which is exactly why I had made the reservation weeks in advance). I initially assumed the manager was calling to tell me he was canceling my reservation, but to his credit they honored it. The service turned out to be excellent. As a visiting Bengals fan, we weee actually treated with great respect by both the staff and the MANY Ravens fans in attendance. In this era where customer service often seems to be a thing of the last, it was great to see an establishment do the right thing! I would highly recommend this location for a fun night out in a lively entertainment district!

    I didn’t actually get to eat at Mother’s. Despite having a reservation, when we got there, the hostess told me that they don’t take reservations on Purple Patio days. She offered to put us on the wait list to be seated in an hour or so. We were going to the Ravens game, which is why I made a point to make a reservation. Obviously, we couldn’t wait or we would have missed the beginning of the game. It was very frustrating. Please don’t let people make reservations on those days because they will not honor them.

    Four of us met at Mother’s Federal Hill Grille for brunch on a Sunday. Each of use ordered an egg dish. They were all well-prepared and enjoyable. We especially liked the Bloody Mary’s we ordered to accompany the meal. Service was professional and friendly.

    So good! We were recommended this place by our local bartender in Fell’s Point. My husband and I shared our meals & we loved the Nashville Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich & the Fully Loaded Smash Burger!!! The French fries & sweet potato fries were also amazing. If I was local to Baltimore, Mothers would be a weekly thing for me!

    We sat in the high top area of the bar. It took about 15 mins for us to be acknowledged by the server/bartender. We were told upon arrival that our server would share the specials with us. He never did but gave the special menu to the table next to us. At that point we had already ordered. My friend ordered a beer and never received it. I had to ask someone else for a refill after sitting my glass at the end of the table for over 10 mins. I ordered crab dip as an appetizer and there were shells in it. They removed it from my check. The ladies were very helpful and picked up the slack of our server. Was really looking forward to this visit but won’t return. My friend ordered the “Mother’s Cobb” which is listed as market price (I assume do to the shrimp. My friend asked to substitute chicken instead. After receiving the check the salad was $25, it was a good portion and she enjoyed it but I think it should have been priced comparable to a chicken cobb as that’s what she ordered. Mimosa was ok. P.S. I try to be understanding of the staff shortages and burnout due to the pandemic but it was one thing after another. Just not a good experience.

    Quick dinner with my son. Promptly seated upon arrival. Professional and friendly service. Crab soups—Md and Cream Crab very tasty as were my salmon and son’s burger. Was surprised and disappointed to find the actual prices much higher than those on the menu shown on Open Table. Obviously no one has updated the menu prices. Also wonder why Open Table and restaurant allow for reservations but no points provided.

    We went for lunch on superbowl sunday and it was fairly quiet which was great. I got the french dip and a side salad and both were pretty good. I'd get them again. Nachos and onion rings for appetizers - I'd get both again. The service was great - friendly and quick. Would like to go back again when it is more crowded.

    The service was great. Our waiter was great. The first course and dessert was great, but the entree was not good. It was tasty with great flavor but the steak was too fatty, the mashed potatoes and sauce on top was cold. When we told our waiter he fixed the problem.

    Good spot for a good meal, diverse menu, lots of Southern and Creole style food along with traditional favorites. My Maryland crab soup and crab cake very good, others at the table enjoyed gumbo, good meals all around. We visited on a Sunday, mid-day, football weekend, so the restaurant side of the house slowly but surely became an extension of the adjacent bar scene; nice folks, just got a bit noisy. Would expect that to NOT be a problem most days.

    We frequent Mother's and generally have an excellent experience. This day was an exception, however. The service was extremely slow and our waitress said little to keep us informed of the status of our order or to check on our drinks. After asking another server for a status update, we learned there was a large trivia event happening in a back room and this was the reason for the slow service. (A) It would have been nice for my own server to mention this in the beginning to manage our expectations, and (B) The restaurant knew it had this event and probably could have increased staffing to accommodate. We will go back, but hope for a much better experience next time.
