Mother's Ruin - Any good?

Drinks? Food? Brunch? Like to hear from anyone that has been and frequents this type of place. Thanks

    Quite good all-around, if you're one of those who likes cocktail bars (I do). Have not been for brunch, but bar snacks are a step above the average and well-priced, IMO.

        Thanks. I've noticed we have similar tastes in a lot of things so I will take your comments as an endorsement.

        I've just been for drinks- well made, and no attitude. I would go back but wouldn't say its destination worthy like death and co or little branch....

          Drinks are ok, not to the level of a m&h or PDT. The big offering is a list of fresh fruits that they will use to craft your cocktail. Had more of a Caribbean than jazz age feel. Worth a shot, but id wait for spring to take advantage of their outdoor space.

            all i can say is that it's run by and frequented by people with fedoras...take that as you will.

              I've never seen a fedora there on patron or employee, but YMMV...
