As we ease back into some semblance of normalcy, you might be wondering how to plan your Father’s Day in 2021. While some folks might still opt for takeout options, more people are feeling comfortable with the dine-in opportunities available at many of Houston’s most popular restaurants. So, whether you decided to place a to-go order or make a reservation for two or more, here are some of our top picks for dad when it comes to the best dining in the Great Houston Metropolitan area on Father’s Day.
The Pit Room – 1201 Richmond Avenue, Houston, Texas 77006
What dad doesn’t love meat? And, The Pit Room, “the hand-crafted brainchild of Michael Sambrooks,” offers plenty of it! Order a ½ or one pound of brisket, beef ribs, pork ribs, pulled pork, turkey, chicken, or multiple types of sausage. There are also sandwiches or dinners, served with your choice of two sides and one slice of white bread. Unique to The Pit Room, there are even two “Feast” options for sharing that come with a selection of meats at four to six sides, like mustard potato salad, elote, and good, ol’ fashioned mac ‘n cheese! Dad can even munch on some a la carte tacos or Texas chili. Seriously, the selections are endless, as they are meaty, at this H-Town favorite!
Rainbow Lodge – 2011 Ella Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77008
There’s no better setting for your old man than a log cabin, and you’ll find one at the Rainbow Lodge. This 100+ year-old log cabin is set along the banks of White Oak Bayou in the heart of Houston and claims to be “sophisticated, not stuffy.” Seem like the perfect setting for a father, if you ask us! Plus, the Rainbow Lodge is offering a Father’s Day Brunch that is out of this world, with starters like Fried Texas Quail Bites, served with white cheddar grits and bourbon bacon gravy. Top it off with a South Texas brunch-style dish, like the Braise Bison Short Rib Benedict or a Father’s Day Special, such as the South Texas Nilgai Antelope Loin, and your pops will be in holiday heaven!
Max’s Wine Dive – 4729 Washington Avenue, Suite B, Houston, Texas 77007
Located in the beloved Montrose neighborhood, Max’s Wine Dive is a great spot for brunch, dinner, or Happy Hour, especially on Father’s Day. There are plenty of finger foods dad will dig, like the Crispy Deviled Eggs, a crispy egg white fried in potato flakes, topped with egg yolk and mayo filling, mustard, house-made pickles, and dill aioli. Pop may also enjoy the Crab Queso, Fried Alligator Bites, Honey Butter Chicken Benedict, or Short Rib Burrito. And, that’s just brunch! But, do you see what we mean? These dishes just scream all things, dad! Pair this meal with a beer, cocktail, or one of Max’s many bottles of wine, and dad is set to have a legendary Sunday Funday for the books.
