Father's Day is this Sunday (June 16), and it's time to pay tribute to all the dads out there. Let's face it: dad doesn't want gifts or flowers like mom does, and there isn't a lot of the typical fuss that accompanies Mother's Day, when nearly every restaurant in town is doing some sort of special brunch. If your dad is anything like ours, he just wants a nice, hearty meal, maybe a good beer, and the company of the people he loves. Here are some restaurants we think will fit the bill.
