Mother's Restaurant features fresh food that feels like home

WESTCHASE — With years of experience in the Tampa restaurant industry, a group of culinary veterans recently joined together to open a new restaurant in Westchase.

Mother's Restaurant offers fresh, homemade food in an upscale, casual environment.

"It's one of those places you can go and it's like you're going to mom's house," said Bradly Spoor, co-owner. "It makes you feel like you're at home."

Located in the space formerly occupied by Tap City Tavern, Mother's offers a diverse menu of freshly made food for lunch and dinner.

"You can get upscale food at reasonable prices," Spoor said.

Menu items include Mother's meatloaf sliders, citrus duck flatbread, mango grilled salmon and braised pork shank.

Soups, salads, burgers and sandwiches are also on the menu. Spoor said the beef on weck sandwich, a Buffalo, N.Y., staple, is the most popular item.

The restaurant also has a large selection of wine, including their own private-label wine. Also offered are craft cocktails and beer, including local craft beer on draft.

There's live music every Friday and Saturday beginning at 8 p.m. Spoor said the restaurant has plans to begin a brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

Mother's Restaurant is located at 12227 W Linebaugh Ave. It's open 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. Monday through Sunday and takeout is available.

For more information, call (813) 814-1533, or visit mothersfl.com.
