Yelp names top 100 spots for Mother’s Day



Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, on Sunday, May 8, 2022, which means it’s time to start thinking about how to treat the well-deserving mothers in your life. This year, to help you plan a special meal, we’ve rounded up a list of the most popular spots for Mother’s Day across the country. Whether you’re taking loved ones out for brunch, dinner or dessert, there’s something to inspire your holiday plans. 

To compile the list, we identified businesses in the restaurant category with a large concentration of reviews mentioning the holiday, then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews. When health inspection data was available, we limited businesses on this list to those with a passing health score as of April 26, 2022. To ensure geographic diversity, we limited to three restaurants per metro area. 

More of a last minute planner? Many of these restaurants have a waitlist you can easily join via Yelp before you leave the house, and mom will never know! And if you can’t be with mom this Mother’s Day, consider sending a meal as many of these spots also deliver. We recommend calling first to determine the best way to order ahead for a loved one.
