With Mother’s Day fast approaching, we start the scramble to find a restaurant that everyone can enjoy equally.
Many restaurants aim squarely at one segment or another…this one is perfect for kids but the parents end up picking up their own dinner on the way home. Or that one does a lovely meal, replete with Brussel sprouts and mimosas, but bring the kids and be prepared to spend the meal enduring dirty looks.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Whether on Mothers Day or any other day of the year, these Huntsville spots are enjoyable for everyone.
#1: Old Black Bear Brewing
A hip brewery in a historical district offering a full menu with items like grilled artichoke hearts with siracha and smoked pork belly with a bacon vinaigrette may sound like a place for the 21 and up crowd. But Old Black Bear embraces their younger patrons with a dedicated kids menu and root beer on tap. Looking for something to do as well? Every Saturday through September, they host a “Makers Market” of local handmade goods from 8:00 am- 1:00 pm.
Hours: Tue – Sun: 11:00 am-2:00 pm, 4:00 pm -9:00 pm (Note, these are the kitchen hours, the brewery is open 11:00 am – 11:00 pm)

#2: Supper Heroes
A superhero-themed restaurant risks seeming kitsch, especially with comic book covered tables and light panels emblazoned with superhero logos. But the kind staff, their genuine love for the genre, and most importantly, the excellent food makes Supper Heroes a wonderful choice for everyone, even those not enthused about superheroes.
Hours: Mon – Sat: 10:30 am-8:30 pm

#3: 1892 East
