Where to Eat Mother's Day Brunch in Charlotte

The Bananas Foster Bread Pudding from Sullivan's Steakhouse.

She's the reason you exist. For Mother's Day this year, treat your mom (or wife who's also a mom) to a delicious spread of morning and afternoon bites. We have yet to find someone who hates brunch, so this plan feels fool-proof. With Mother's Day falling on Sunday, May 13, this year, that gives you just under two weeks to make reservations at the below Charlotte restaurants serving Mother's Day brunch.


The Asbury

Featuring their regular spring brunch menu with a la carte pricing, The Asbury at the Dunhill Hotel will delight Southern food-loving mothers with their Southern Benedict, Chicken in a Biscuit, and other brunch staples. As an added bonus, every mom receives a rose, and mimosa pitchers are $28. Call 704-342-1193 for reservations.


BLT Steak

For Mother's Day, BLT Steak at the Ritz is staying open from brunch through dinner: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., though the steakhouse typically closes during that time. With a variety of brunch items offered throughout the afternoon including salads, classic egg dishes, sandwiches, signature popovers, and steak-centric entrees, BLT's brunch will have something for everyone. Plus, their new Sunday Roast option (prime rib, $49), will also be available during daytime and evening hours. The deal gets sweeter when you remember that Sundays feature half-off bottles of wine and $5 mimosas and Bloody Marys. Dishes are priced separately.


Stoke Charlotte

No prix-fixes and no pressure at this uptown spot in the Marriott for Mother's Day—instead, there will be an a la carte menu available all day from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. From brunch favorites such as Tim’s Stuffed French Toast filled with ricotta and berries and crusted with Rice Krispies to healthier options such the Avocado Toast with stracciatella with sea salt and Georgia olive oil, the menu is vast enough for all tastes. There will also be new dishes from Chef Coleman's team: the extra crispy Dipped Fried Chicken with Nolan’s hot BBQ sauce and chow chow and the deliciously messy Steak Sandwich with caramelized onions and pimento cheese are just two. Plus, mom can indulge in one of the many spring cocktails available.


Carpe Diem

Pay $30 for a two-course menu including salad or soup and entrees such as crab cake benedict, churro French toast, chicken and waffles, and spring herb crepe, among other choices. A classic mimosa will cost $7, and a Bloody Mary with pickled okra is $8.


The Ballantyne

Offering a contemporary Southern take on brunch and live music during dining, Gallery Restaurant at The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge will be serving the meal on May 13 from noon to 4 p.m. Executive Chef Garrett Merck will create a sumptuous display of flavorful salads and regionally-inspired sides and entrée selections, all complemented by mimosas and Bloody Marys. There will also be a dessert by Pastry Chef Noelle Gogg. The cost is $95 per person, $40 for ages 5-12, and free for ages 4 and under (plus tax and a 24-percent service charge). Reservations are required at 704-248-4100.



This wine bar is featuring a Mother's Day "Roses and Rosé" event which entails them opening their giant, 15-liter bottle of rosé. Brunch is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a three-course, prix-fixe menu for $40 per person. All brunch cocktails—mimosas, bellinis, Bloodys, and screwdrivers—are just $5 a pop on this special occasion. Expect to see crab cakes, beef tenderloin eggs benedict, quiche florentine, coconut macaroon, tiramisu French toast, and more goodies on the menu. 



The Italian restaurant inside uptown's Tryon Park Hotel is offering a prix-fixe brunch from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. For $35 per person, the whole table first enjoys these shareable dishes: Charcuterie & Cheese Board, House Zeppoles, and Spring Bruschetta Antipasta. Then, three courses follow—most menu items are either Italian or familiar bites such as Avocado Toast, Cavatelli Carbonara, Frittata, Shrimp & Grits, and Tiramisu. You can make reservations on OpenTable.



Hosting a Mother's Day Brunch Buffet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., 5Church will also have their brand-new Mimosa Flights available. These flights are $15 and include these following mimosa flavors: cucumber mint, hibiscus lavender, passion fruit, and pineapple mint. For adults, the brunch buffet is $40 per person, and for kids 12 and under, it is $18. The spread includes timeless favorites such as eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, and French toast, along with some elevated options such as charcuterie and cheese, seared salmon, a raw bar with crab legs and oysters, carved NY strip, and tabouli salad.


Sullivan's Steakhouse

Sullivan’s Steakhouse Charlotte is serving up a 3-course, prix-fixe menu for $39 per guest. This will be the only menu offered from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with the regular menu available from 4 p.m. to close. The prix-fixe brunch menu will feature innovative takes on classic steakhouse dishes, including Lump Crabcake Benedict, Roasted Rack of Lamb with a Grain Mustard-Rosemary Glaze, Crab & Basil Stuffed Shrimp drizzled in a Cajun Lobster Sauce, and house-made Bananas Foster Bread Pudding.



Though this new uptown restaurant just started their weekend brunch a couple weeks ago, and Mother's Day is no exception. Indulge in their seasonal, Southern-inspired brunch menu on Mother's Day, which features savory surprises such as crispy pork belly along with sweet treats such as the cinnamon donut holes.


WP Kitchen + Bar

Wolfgang Puck's SouthPark restaurant will hold a special brunch for Mother’s Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Highlights of the menu include Smoked Salmon Pizza with dill cream, caviar, and chives, and Shakshuka with baked eggs, merguez sausage, spiced tomato sauce, aji amarillo, caramelized onions, cilantro, and feta, among other elevated plates.
