Now is the time for all of Bartlesville to descend on local restaurants to celebrate our mothers. As it happens, the National Restaurant Association claims that Mother’s Day is the most popular restaurant party of the year.
While some restaurants may close on Sundays and others may not necessarily be doing anything special for the holidays, a few in Bartlesville go above and beyond their usual offerings.
Reservations and availability vary by restaurant, so be sure to plan ahead wherever you go.
Here are some local favorites worth considering when planning your Mother’s Day celebrations. And if you take a photo during your meal, send us a copy to the email address listed at the bottom of the page to be featured in a special gallery next week.
Luigi’s Italian Restaurant
Luigi’s is a staple in the Bartlesville community, having opened its doors in 2011 and proudly serving classic Italian dishes like Tortellini Alla Panna, Chicken Marsala and Stromboli for the past decade.
The restaurant recently opened a new location on Washington Boulevard which owner Vito Morino says provides a better customer experience. If you haven’t visited yet, Mother’s Day could be the perfect time to check out the new spot.
Morino is preparing special menu options for Mother’s Day, including steak tenderloin and chicken sponge cake.
The restaurant won’t be taking advance calls or reservations, but Morino hopes to open the outdoor patio for additional guests.
Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Copper Restaurant & Bar
Copper’s opened in 2003 and currently offers artisan dishes from Chef Albert ‘Nook’ Ducre.
The restaurant has moved to the 1st floor of the Price Tower in the Plaza Dining Room while the 15th and 16th floors are being renovated.
The Mother’s Day menu will include Eggs Benedict, Florentine Crab Cakes, Quail and Waffles, Shrimp Omelet, Donuts, Mimosa Flights and special Mother’s Day drinks.

Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Located in the heart of downtown, Hideaway is considered by many to be the best pizza in Bartlesville, and some would say it’s among the best in the state.
Hideaway offers traditional pizzas and unique flavor combinations like The Pollinator which uses olive oil and garlic glaze, salami, spicy capicola, cup ‘n’ curl pepperoni, banana peppers and topped with honey.
Not craving pizza, try one of their baked pastas or sandwiches – and be sure to order some spicy fried pickles to share.
Hideaway won’t be taking reservations, but you can join their online waiting list.
Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Soho Japanese Steakhouse
Soho opened in 2016 in the former Golden Corral location and has been wowing customers ever since.
Soho’s menu offers a variety, from hibachi meals to fresh sushi.
The hibachi grill dining experience offers tableside cooking, humor and a bit of showmanship.
If you’re not in the mood for a show, find room in open seating and enjoy the same food, but without all the heat.
Soho takes reservations online or by phone at 918-876-3936.
Sunday hours are 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
