Don’t you think it’s time to treat her to something extra special for Mother’s Day? Why not go upscale for your Mother’s Day brunch at some of the best places around town. Whether your mom prefers stunning scenery, succulent steaks or decadent desserts, you can find the right spot for mom this year. Just don’t wait until the last minute to make your reservations. Many places are booked solid weeks in advance.

Whether or not you have Italian blood in your veins, you can still treat your mama to an Italian feast at Arturo’s Uptown Italiano.

Brenner’s Steakhouse
10911 Katy Freeway
Houston, Texas 77079
(713) 465-2901

Since 1936, Brenner’s Steakhouse has been the best-kept secret in Houston. The original location on the Katy Freeway has a must-see garden in the back. Just seeing the gardens is reason enough to visit Brenner’s for Mother’s Day, but the food is unsurpassed as well. As a steakhouse, you will be able to order any of the steaks on the dinner menu for Mother’s Day brunch, but there are other flavorful foods on the menu for those who don’t like beef. Try the gulf snapper, open-face vegetable lasagna or the three-course dinner. OpenTable.com is where you go to make your reservations for this restaurant.
