If you are a server in a local restaurant, you know the most dreaded day in the restaurant business is fast approaching, Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12.  

A National Restaurant Association survey finds that 40% of adults will use a restaurant to treat mom to a special Mother’s Day meal. 

Mother’s Day was enshrined as a National Day of Observance in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed that the second Sunday in May would be known Mother’s Day, making May 10, 1914 the first national Mother’s Day. This year is the 110th anniversary of national Mother’s Day.  

Mother’s Day brunch is a favorite way to treat mom to a special meal with entire families gathered to celebrate mom. What says Mother’s Day more than moms and mimosas? 

However, post-pandemic prices, a shortage of help and the closure of numerous restaurants have only increased the pressure on restaurants to deliver memorable Mother’s Day brunches.  

The National Restaurant Association urges dinners to pack patience and consideration when celebrating Mother’s Day at her favorite restaurant. Diners are urged to 

Make reservations early so you can book your preferred time. 

Only book reservation at one restaurant. If you book several reservations, be sure to cancel the reservations you ultimately don’t choose. It sounds like an obvious move, but surprisingly many diners forgo this common courtesy.  

Make sure everyone in your party shows up on time. Late arrivals are a nightmare for restaurants to accommodate. Show courtesy to other diners and the restaurant staff by being on time.  

Yes, you’re now paying much more for Mother’s Day restaurant meals than in the past years, including at least five percent more compared to 2023, but that does not give you permission to act like an “entitled Emily.” Mistakes happen, even in the best restaurants. Before berating your sever, give the kitchen a chance to make it right.
