Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12, and this year, instead of buying potpourri or regifting her your old bubble bath, you should get Mom a gift she will actually love: a great meal. Sure, other people may have made reservations months in advance — but one thing you might not know about Mother’s Day is that you can give your mama the star treatment at a bevy of brunch- and dinner-worthy chain restaurants.

Brunch is a Mother’s Day right, and there are enough options out there to provide Ma with exactly the meal she wants. While boozy beverages abound at family-friendly chains like Olive Garden and The Capital Grille, steakhouses like Yard House, Fleming’s, Ruth’s Chris and more are serving brunch menus until well into the afternoon as well as stand-out dinner options for you and your mom to enjoy along with special surprises.

Whether she is enjoying lobster, waffles or pasta, many of these chains are including a gift with the purchase of a meal and some are even giving your sainted mother some flowers — for free.

So call your mom — or your step-mom, your auntie, your grandma or whatever other women in your life you look up to — and tell her you’re taking her out to brunch, because The Daily Meal has found you the best chain restaurant Mother’s Day deals.
