Still looking for a restaurant to take mom to on Mother's Day? Well, there is no shortage of places offering free meals for her special day.

Some 35 percent of Americans dine out on Mother's Day and around one-in-10 will order takeout or delivery, according to the National Restaurant Association.

What do they want to eat? Seafood, says the NRA. Some 26 percent of moms are looking forward to a seafood meal, 16 percent want steak and 12 percent are looking to hit a buffet.

There are plenty of restaurants and non-food brands offering special deals on Sunday:

  • Hooters: Moms get their pick of a free meal off the "Mother's Day Menu." The restaurant gave away more than 40,000 free meals last Mother's Day.
  • Medieval Times: Mothers receive free admission to the castle with one paid adult admission ticket.
  • Wienerschnitzel: Moms get a free meal — chili dog, small fries and small soda — with proof of "Mom-bership." Just show a family photo, bring along a child or share an embarrassing story about your kid with one of the servers to redeem this free meal.
  • Beef 'O' Brady's: Mothers eat free with the purchase of a meal of equal or greater value up to $10.
  • Denny's: Get a free dessert for mom when you buy two entrees.
  • Bob Evans: Moms who visit on Mother's Day will receive a voucher for a free cup of coffee (good for four visits).
  • Mod Pizza: Mothers can choose a free pizza or salad on Mother's Day.
  • Cincinnati Zoo: Moms get free admission on Sunday.
  • St. Louis Cardinals: Sign your mother up for the Cardinal's team magazine and she'll receive two free tickets.
