Although Mother’s Day has been an official holiday in the United States since 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed it into law, we never really needed an excuse to celebrate Mom. Undoubtedly, flowers and greeting cards fly off of the shelves around this time, but finding a place to eat is sometimes one of the hardest things to do. According to Town and Country Magazine, Mother’s Day is the busiest day of the year for restaurants, so we decided to make it easier for those making plans to take Mom out to one of Atlanta’s amazing restaurants. Check out our last-minute Mother’s Day restaurant round-up with descriptions direct from the source to help narrow down your selection.
