No material thing can repay Mom for all she’s done for you over the years, but the least you can do on Mother’s Day is pick up the check.

Mother’s Day is the single most popular day for dining out (followed by Valentine’s Day, Easter, Father’s Day and New Year’s Eve). This year, the National Retail Federation estimates we’ll spend more than $4.6 billion at restaurants for Mom on May 12, 2019. It’s the second largest gift category after jewelry ($5.2 billion).

Your relationship with your mom is priceless, but that doesn’t mean you can’t save a little coin — after all, she always taught you to be smart with your money. Whether you decide on brunch, lunch, or dinner, here are some restaurants offering discounts or special menus for Mother’s Day this year.

(And check back soon! We’ll add more freebies and deals for 2019 as they are revealed. Here were a few from 2018.)


Finish your Mother’s Day meal with a special cake from Baskin-Robbins, and get $3 off with this coupon. If ordering online, use promo code CAKE. Offer good through May 31.
