Now don’t freak out, but we’ve got some news — Father’s Day is this Sunday. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to get your ish together.  Well, worry a little. Worry just enough to actually make a reservation at one of these places. And do it fast.

Red’s Ice House will hold a father’s day brunch with all of Dad’s gender normative favorites: big burgers, craft brews, and fried grouper all with a view of beautiful Shem Creek. And get this, they’re giving away two tickets to see country singer Travis Tritt this Thursday at The Grove. So if your papa has a three-day beard he doesn’t plan to shave and loves howlin’ at the moon, you’re gonna wanna get to Red’s.

Tavern and Table, right next door to Red’s, is quickly becoming a Shem Creek staple. For Father’s Day, the restaurant will hold its usual brunch, but with a prize giveaway — a barrel of their house-aged whiskey. Yeah, that’ll go nicely next to Dad’s new tool box. Make sure to get reservations here, as this place always fills up fast.

Noisy Oyster will be offering a meal truly fit for a king all day on Father’s Day that includes a slow roasted bone-in prime rib, a broiled lobster tail, twice-baked stuffed potato, and grilled asparagus for $25.99. All dads will also receive a complimentary piece of chocolate cake, a koozie, and a $20 gift card to be used at a later date. 

If your Dad appreciates giving back, head to Crave Kitchen and Cocktails. For Father’s Day the restaurant is donating a portion of their profits to Camp Rise Above, an organization that, according to their website, “provides fun, life changing camp experiences to children with serious illnesses, life challenges, and disabilities.” 

The Alley will be offering a free game of bowling to Dads who come in for brunch. Brunch specials includes a barbecue benedict, shrimp benedict, Southern benedict, banana bread French toast, and pineapple fountain pancakes. Make sure to pin this one on your calendar and roll on over if you have some spare time. It’s sure to be a ball. Hopefully the employees won’t go on strike. OK, I’m done.  

The Shelter will offer a Bloody Mary bar and $8.50 mimosa carafes to satisfy any Dad’s tremendous thirst. Pair that with some good weather and live music at noon from Midnight City, and it should make for a great brunch.

Toast of Summerville is trying to satisfy Dad’s hunger with a $19.95 Father’s Day prime rib special, which comes complete with mashed potatoes and green beans. Reservations are recommended. Call to make reservations at (843) 900-4422.

The Daily will be offering sweet cheese plates in case you’re staying in this Father’s Day. Pick yours up at the Upper King cafe this Saturday (the day before Father’s Day if you still haven’t picked up on that.)

On Forty One will host a Father’s day Brunch at $30 a person and $12 for kids 12 and under. Menu items may include fried chicken, shrimp and grits, smoked salmon cakes, vegetarian quiche, scrambled eggs, and apple smoked bacon.
