Mother’s Day Brunch ?

Wanted to try to find a spot that would have a fun Mother’s Day brunch either on the water or with a view. Prefer a outside deck or patio. Any suggestions ?

Don't try to eat out on Mother's Day? That's my best advice.

But be that as it way, there are not a lot of great places on the water or with a view. Bayside is decent, Waterline at the Balboa Bay Club, Bluewater Grill and The Dock are the ones I'd consider.

Mother's Day brunch is pretty crazy around here, and many places are probably already booked. However, one fun idea is a brunch cruise. There are large yachts that offer harbor cruises with brunch. The food will probably be mediocre, and the event expensive. But if you want water views, you can't get any closer.

It's Hornblower dining yachts, and here's the website (make sure you choose Newport Beach from the locations list):


I much prefer their sunset cocktail cruise (it's a lot cheaper, and it doesn't matter that the food isn't spectacular). We usually take friends and go once or twice a year. But they don't offer that on Mother's Day.

Wherever you go, you need to reserve right now. Duke's in Huntington Beach has a good buffet for Mother's Day brunch but you need to reserve it and you'll probably either get a very early time or a very late time.

I'd suggest the Bluewater Grill. We go to the one in Redondo Beach every Mother's Day because our family enjoys seafood, and ordering off the menu.

We don't care for the $70 pp Brunches, as it's too much food, and always packed at those places.

Bluewater or Waterline
