Restaurants Gear Up For Busy Weekend

Restaurants Gear Up For Busy Weekend
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Restaurant goers spend 3.4 billion dollars eating out on Mother’s Day, making it the busiest restaurant day of the year.

Marie Asbury and her mom Judy Ilhardt are drawing out their Mother's Day celebration over several days.

“Being 12 hours apart, her living across the country, it's nice she was able to come in for Mother's Day,” Asbury said. “When we lived in the same city we'd spend Mother's Day together, go to church together have lunch together, and spend the time together."

Ilhardt said they’d spent it doing a lot of eat.

Illhardt isn’t the only one. Eating out is a big part of Mother's Day for most people. 

“For us Mother's Day is probably equal to New Year's Eve, and this is only our second year of being open for Mother's Day," Minerva’s worker Jerry Bremmon said.

Minerva's Restaurant in Sioux Falls is typically closed on Sundays, but started making an exception for Mother's Day two years ago.

“Our guests have been asking for it for years.  We did it to accommodate them," Bremmon said.

Moms don't leave much to chance when it comes to their day.  A recent survey shows that about 65 percent of mothers will be booking the reservations themselves.

“It's either mom or grandma when families are getting together.  Sometimes it's the daughter," Bremmon said.

The mother-daughter duo of Asbury and Illhardt are happy to get a jump start on their time together.

“Our Mother's Day has been kind of a Mother's Day weekend almost.  We've been going out to eat and doing things with the kids," Asbury said.

We're just enjoying each other and that's been really nice," Ilhardt said.

Minerva's has 900 people with reservations for Sunday. 

Most restaurants are already booked, but you may still be able to get a reservation for later in the day or if there is a cancellation.
