Where to Spoil Mom With a Decadent Feast in Nashville on Mother’s Day

Because lobster benedicts and bottomless mimosas are definitely love languages

View as Map

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9 this year, and Nashville loves its mamas. Naturally, many people will try to make a reservation for the person who sacrificed countless nights of sleep for them. But on the off-chance Mother’s Day went missing on the iCal, redemption awaits. There’s still time to make plans for an over-the-top meal bursting with buttery lobster benedicts, slices of banana coffee cake, and the unbridled joy that accompanies a symphony of Champagne bottles popping in a rush to refill a bottomless mimosa order. In that spirit, here’s a handy guide to restaurants offering up a meal worthy of the title “mom.”

A number of restaurants on this map have resumed dine-in service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit A Safe Nashville. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
