When it comes to Father's Day, I could talk about the cliche things. Like how Dad taught you how to ride a bike, always made you laugh when you felt sad, or escorted you to the daddy daughter dance. All of those things mean something special, but it's the little moments that really solidify your relationship. That's why taking the initiative to plan an extraordinary dinner party for Dad won't just make his heart melt, but also adds value by joining your collection of memories!


To kick things off, and no, I'm not talking about the football game, the appetizers you serve to Dad are definitely going to be commented on...especially by Dad. It's pretty important that they're absolutely delicious, although he'll probably just suffer through it even if they aren't. But if that's of any concern - you can always dive into the safe zone by grabbing our Father's Day Grill Kit!

Father's Day Appetizers


The menu items that compliment the main course are pretty important. They really set the stage for the type of meal you're enjoying, and I'll go as far as stating that they can impact the entire flavor of the main dish. Whether you're a steak and potatoes kind of person or prefer a nice fettuccine alfredo, your choice in grains, veggies, fruit or mix of them all seriously sets the tone for the table!

Father's Day Sides


Okay, finally on to the really good part. The meal you serve this Father's Day will be forever engrained in everyones memory - well, maybe that's an exaggeration. Regardless, you want to enjoy great food, your guests want to enjoy great food, and Dad wants to enjoy great food. It's as simple as that, but deciding on a meal isn't always easy, and this is coming from someone who never knows what they want to eat (hey, I'll own it!) Hopefully one of these meal ideas resonates with you and Dads' taste buds!

It's socially necessary for Dad to carry a glass of whiskey or a cold beer around with him on Father's Day. If he sets that down, either he's focused on the grill or there's a serious problem. Serve Dad a delicious whiskey or bourbon cocktail instead of him simply drinking it on the rocks!
