The 14 Best Mother's Day Restaurant Deals

These restaurant chains will honor moms with special brunch hours and celebratory deals.

Mother's Day is quickly approaching! Whether the special women in your life prefer breakfast in bed, brunch out with her gal pals, or a nice dinner surrounded by loved ones, this springtime holiday can easily become a day-long foodie celebration.

No matter the preference, don't under any circumstances make mom do the cooking (unless that's, like, really her thing). Give her the day off and bring the tasty food to her instead!

One way of doing that is to go above and beyond the typical bouquet of flowers and Hallmark card and treat mom to a fancy brunch or dinner. Chains across the country will be open on May 12 and offer special celebratory menus, brunch hours, and Mother's Day deals. But if you prefer a cozy Mother's Day at home, never fear! Meal kits are also available for ordering from many restaurant chains as well.

Here are some of the best places to take mom on Mother's Day.
