Mother’s Day Dining Ideas (Local Edition)


If you’re anything like me, one thing that comes to mind for having a perfect Mother’s Day is to NOT cook and not have to deal with yet another dirty dish after a meal. So making sure that I get a meal on that day where I don’t need to worry about cooking is my TOP priority! After all, we mommas deserve a day without cooking! With that being said I’m giving you the ultimate Mother’s Day dining guide! From scenic restaurants, dinner on a boat, brunch, or fabulous wine and appetizers… I’ve got you covered!

Scenic Brunch

Nothing is more relaxing than spending Mother’s Day with brunch and a boat cruise, admiring Charleston’s breathtaking scenery, and watching the dolphins jump out the water!

The Carolina Girl Yacht will be doing a three-hour boat ride Mother’s Day brunch! A sample of what they will be serving will include assorted muffins, quiche, lemon squares, chicken salad sandwiches, along with unlimited mimosas and wine. Prior booking is definitely recommended for both events!


If you are wanting to have a brunch, lunch, or dinner cooked for you, but in a more intimate setting like your home, here are some options. Home Team BBQ is offering a Mother’s Day takeout option (preordering is required!) Nothing says Mother’s Day like yummy BBQ, pimento sandwiches, and deviled eggs, right?! Table & Twine Charleston will be also doing a fabulous ready-to-go brunch package that includes pimento cheese tomatoes pie, ham & gruyere croissants, buttermilk fried chicken biscuits, and so much more! Preordering is also required here.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth,  Annie O’s Love’s Cafe of Sweet Abundance will be offering their Strawberry Apocalypse Vegan Cheesecake for preorder. If you are a cheesecake lover, this cake looks absolutely amazing, it’s even drizzled in chocolate!

The Creative Mom Brunch

Nailed It DIY Studio is offering a Mother’s Day brunch & paint. You get to create a special craft and have brunch, how fun is that! They will be offering delicious foods such as Banna Belgium Foster Waffle and breakfast croissant sandwiches. You can pre-book this amazing experience until April 30th!

Local Restaurants

If you are looking for some local spots that are offering Mother’s Day specials or are just a really great spot to enjoy your special day… look no further!

Grace & Grit will be serving an absolutely scrumptious brunch. They make an amazing grit flight, shrimp and grits, along with a mimosas flight! Not only is the food wonderful but it’s in a fantastic location because right afterward, you can have a stroll at Waterfront Park!

Savi’s Cucina + Wine Bar will be offering some special foods that sound incredibly delicious! They will be serving tomato basil gazpacho, seafood scampi, grilled market catch, petit filet and lobster, along with many other amazing entrees!

If you want a place for the kiddos to run around outside while you enjoy breakfast and coffee in peace, Vintage Coffee Cafe is the perfect spot for you to do just that! They make the best iced lavender lattes, acai bowls, and fun breakfast sandwiches! Or, if you are in the mood for pizza, right next door is Coastal Crust which serves amazing one-of-a-kind pizzas that both you and your family will love!

I hope these ideas will help you have the perfect Mother’s Day! After all, you deserve the best!
