Mothers Day North/Northwest Suburbs

Moms turning 70 on Mothers Day. NOT interested in going downtown for overpriced and limited menues. Or big banquet rooms. More intimate restaurants ideas for excellent food, traditional atmosphere (nothing ultra modern)for late brunch/lunch or early dinner for this double occasion! Would consider restaurants at golf or countryclub locations or places with pretty scenery? 6 adults, 3 kids. THNKS!

How about Eaglewood Resort in Itasca? It's really a lovely location - kind of off the beaten path. And very easy to get to from 355 south. Nothing on their website about Mother's Day but I can't imagine they won't have a brunch. I can also recommend Allgauer's in Northbrook, but larger parties like yours get seated in the ballroom rather than the restaurant. Indian Lakes Resort is not quite northwest but but they do have a brunch. See here:

If you go with Indian Lakes, ask for seating in Shiraz on the Water rather than the ballroom - it's got more ambience. And unlike Allgauers, they don't seem to limit larger parties to the ballroom. I went to a holiday brunch at Indian Lakes just before Christmas and it was very nice - both food & atmosphere.

Some other nice restaurants I can recommend would be Rosewood in Rosemont or the Wellington in Arlington Heights. But I recommend the other places mentioned first as they are in more scenic locations.
