Waiter service was great...food was ok, nothing special for the price. I would however recommend the escargot appetizer if that's your thing. Great location and ambiance, would be back for bar service but prob not for dinner

first it should be 4.5 not 5 but that is because our waiter seemed to forget that coffee and dessert should come together or coffee first but dessert then coffee? where did he go? But everything else was wonderful , the bar is very comfortable and friendly, the food was great not one of us had any complaints, the duck special was the entrée of choice and all agreed it was outstanding, the rib eye and filets were done perfect as well. We shared veal meatballs and stuffed hot peppers to start which were also noteworthy. All 4 of us can't wait to return. keep in mind the odd location and difficult parking is part of its overall charm. Loved it. this place is made for an enjoyable evening, They don't rush you and you really would like to stay at the bar , maybe next time a cab or walk to nearby hotel so we can indulge in that whole experience.

A great discovery close to BestWestern and Holiday on Delaware near Allen. Hidden somewhat on an alley type street. Good effort on the bar area - very inviting. Interesting choices on the menu and reasonable wine prices. Friendly and helpful staff in explaining some menu items. The food was good. I'd go back for sure - they have a side patio I'd like to try out in warmer weather.

My husband and I went to Mothers on a whim for a casual Saturday out. We went at about 8pm and the dining room was packed and we ended up waiting about 50 minutes for a table. We had a couple drinks at the bar while we waited. Once we were seated we ordered the stuffed banana peppers for an appetizer which we thoroughly enjoyed. I ordered the wild striped bass and my husband had the lamb chops, both from the specials menu. My fish was cooked perfectly with a flavorful crunchy crust and moist flaky inside. The portions were very generous and we ended up taking left overs. We also tried the cheesecake for dessert which was pretty decent. The service was nothing to complain about - out waiter was prompt and knowledgable if not overly friendly. Overall we enjoyed Mothers and would definitely go back - with a reservation next time.

Interior of historic, small building is decorated in a tasteful, understated way. Had a good steak, and good wedge salad. Wine list is solid, and not pricey. Bar area looks like a cool place to hang out.
