Maybe Baltimore's Mother's Federal Hill Grille is decidedly worth your time, maybe it isn't, but one thing's for sure, when your bar and grill is voted as one of the top 25 sports bars in the country by Sporting News, you've got to be doing something right.

So, what makes Mother's worthy of an award like this?  Let's begin.

Drink specials are available every day and typically include deals like $2.50 Miller Lites, $5 Ketel One 12-ounce mixed drinks, and $9 pitchers of Yuengling.

Whether you're there to catch a game,  grab some drinks and appetizers after work, or dine with the whole family, Mother's Federal Hill Grille has you covered when you're looking for a great, tasty time.
