My husband and I could rave about our experience with Mother’s Catering all day. As residents of Federal Hill, we are frequent visitors of Mother’s and have always enjoyed their food and fun atmosphere. When we saw they were on our wedding venues preferred vendor list, we thought we would give them a try and are so very glad we did. From the very start, Hannah and Kelly were so fun to meet with and incredibly helpful with not only planning a menu our guests would love, but also planning our bar options, rentals, decor – essentially anything we needed help with during our reception. We did not have a wedding coordinator so this was a huge help! Their experience in wedding planning really showed and we are so grateful. At every meeting, we were greeted with some sort of mimosa, bloody mary or beers; a great way to relieve stress when planning a wedding! The food at the wedding was absolutely delicious, our family friends continue to rave about it. The bar service was fast and efficient and they even expanded the beer selection to include an entire assortment of beers that was above and beyond what we requested. They cleaned everything up afterwards and were professional every step of the way. We really cannot thank Mother’s enough for all their hard work, incredible service, and the peace of mind they gave us every step of the way. Weeks after our wedding we’ve found ourselves missing our planning meetings and finding excuses to seem them again! It truly was our pleasure to work with them, they made our experience so enjoyable! We highly recommend them for your wedding or any special event.
Mother’s is a staple restaurant and bar in Federal Hill & Baltimore. I’ll start with the food. The majority of their menu is all homemade; from the sauces, condiments, and dressings, to the weekly specials, meatloaf, and sushi grade tuna. The seafood is fresh as can be and the steaks are cooked to order. You can tell they take a lot of pride in the food they put out. On to the drinks: there are 20 beers on tap featuring really solid craft beer choices. The crushes also contain fresh squeezed juice and taste great. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming. There is always a variety of people here- families (kids are welcome, too!), college kids, locals, out-of-towners, etc. It’s always a good time here. Saturday & Sunday brunch at Mother’s is really good also. The Crab McMothers is a solid choice. The menu offers a wide variety for everyone- carnivores, pescetarians, and even vegans!
I just wanted to update my review, from a 4-star experience to a 5-star. I recently ordered more than $500-worth of wings and chipotle mac&cheese via Mother’s catering and was over-the-moon happy with my order and the manner in which is was handled. It was the day of the power outages and 108-degree weather no less, and Mother’s had my order ready to go on time, loaded it up in my car, and made sure I had all the warmers and chaffers I needed. My guests LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the wings and many took some home with them since we had lots of left-overs. I would absolutely recommend getting your next event catered through Mother’s… I know I will! DELICIOUS! Some may call Mother’s food bar food – I call it cookout cuisine at its best!
Recently had our wedding reception in the back bar. My wife & I chose to rent that area out, & then we scheduled our taste testing. The staff was very welcoming and the food was delicious! Not to mention how hungover i was, feeling like i was hit by a truck . On the day of the wedding, we arrived early while everything was still being setup, which was fine since we had our stuff to bring as well. They placed everything to our liking & catered to our every need. The food we chose was the jerk chicken strips, crab dip, jambalaya w/rice, & the 3 cheese tortellinis, that the guests raved about. Overall the night was a success, the beer flowed like wine, food was delish, & the music bumped. The whole staff of Mother’s was extremely helpful, friendly, & professional. I’d recommend holding an event there to anyone without a doubt. Thanks again for everything on our unforgettable night!
