6 Foolproof Father's Day Feasts



Dads can be difficult to shop for, which is why you cannot go wrong spending some quality time with him at one of his favorite restaurants. Need some help deciding where to take dad for Father’s Day. We rounded up five places that will make your dad feel special and satiated.



How about a signature steak?

Give dad what he really wants: meat. From prime rib to filet mignon, Harry’s Savoy Grill has it. They are even offering their signature steak, a seared 18-ounce, 45-day aged rib eye, served with onion rings and a glass of Harry’s house wine for $45. There is also plenty of fish and homemade pastas on the menu. Dine between 3 p.m.-9 p.m.—for reservations call 475-3000.

How many slices can your dad eat?

Does your dad have an intense appetite? Why not see how he stacks up against other dads during Seasons Pizza’s second annual Pizza-Eating Contest? Registration begins at noon and the contest begins at 12:30 p.m. Each competitor will receive a $50 gift card, and the father who eats the most pizza will win a $250 cash prize.

Brunch or dinner (you decide!)
