Mother's Day is Sunday, May 14.

Heading out for brunch with your mom is a tradition for many. At my house, we're still trying to narrow down our Mother's Day plan this year. My spouse has hinted where she'd like to go for brunch, but we've got kind of a crazy weekend.

Due to a scheduling coincidence, Mother's Day is also the day we're allowed to paint my graduate's parking spot at his high school for part of their Senior Week stuff. Not exactly how she wants to spend her day. But that's kind of how it goes... moms give and give, just trying to keep their family and household from falling apart, right? Even on "their" day.

Many restaurants in Billings and surrounding communities offer Mother's Day brunches or a special menu this Sunday. Most of the brunch offerings include a variety of flavorful proteins (ham, prime rib, turkey, etc.), tasty salads and sides, various delectable desserts, and a special mimosa or other beverage tailored for Mom. Many are buffet-style, and others are served more traditionally.

Perhaps your brunch reservations are already locked down, but if you're still looking for ideas we've compiled a list of restaurant options that may have slipped your mind.
