Whenever we visit our child at Cal Poly, we always make a point to head Downtown and eat dinner at Mother's Tavern. Great food and a lovely atmosphere. Upstairs is very nice to eat as well.

I live in the midwest and was visiting SLO during the NFL season. After seeing a Brian Urlacher jersey running down the street I asked where to watch the Bears game and he said follow me to MoTav. What a good call. Every NFL game on, great beer selection and pricing and some very tasty food made our Sunday visit great. My burger was outstanding and my wife's wrap might have been even better.

A fun atmosphere, great food and great fun.

We are local and visit here for lunch, happy hour and dinner. It is able to cater to a wide range of folks and then be the place late night for the students. The food is good with a favorite of mine, the tuna sandwich which is a generous portion of seared tuna, just warm. Happy hour is a deal both for the food and drinks. Locals and tourists alike enjoy this spot.

Visited during a Thanksgiving vacation. Awesome food with family-friendly atmosphere. The loaded Mac and cheese is the bomb! The artichoke spinach dip is the best EVER. Will definitely be back.

I had a very good meal here a couple days ago and thought I'd let everyone know that the Reuben was very good. The price was good for the portion size. The service was nothing spectacular but overall good food for good prices.
