Your Las Vegas restaurant guide for Father’s Day 2017

June 12, 2017 / Las Vegas

No kitchen in your Vegas hotel? No problem. Take this opportunity to treat your dad to a delicious meal at one of these standout Las Vegas restaurants.    


Where to eat in Las Vegas this Father’s Day


1. Buddy V’s Ristorante

Buddy V’s was started by Buddy Valastro, star of TLC’s Cake Boss, a reality show that highlights the incredibly intricate cakes Buddy makes in his family bakery. Valastro’s expertise is not limited to dessert, however, and the menu here is made up largely of the hearty Italian dishes that the founder grew up eating. Nonna’s Lasagna Al Forno, made with 3 different meats, is sure to sate even the most ravenous. Don’t fill up on the mains though – you can’t come here and not at least sample the cake.

Where: The Venetian – 3327 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89109


2. Honey Salt

Honey Salt’s brunch menu has Dad written all over it. Nachos, pizza, and burgers are all miraculously converted into breakfast foods thanks to Honey Salt’s innovative menu.  If any of the lighter eaters in the family need convincing, the menu also includes several salad options as well as their signature Green Goodness Juice, which is billed as “salad in a glass.” Bottomless Bloody Marys and champagne will ensure that everyone is content to linger and chat; isn’t that what Dad really wants anyway? 

Where: 1031 S. Rampart Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89145


3. Andiron Steak and Sea

If you’re looking for an elegant take on classic dishes, Andiron Steak and Sea is a great bet. With a menu described as “an homage to all things grilled, roasted, shucked, and seared,” Andiron puts a modern spin on steakhouse favorites. With the option to add complements like foie gras and lobster tail to your steak, this has the potential to be quite the special dinner out. You could also opt for their Sunday brunch, which features a live DJ and a candy bar, making it a fun choice for music-loving dads and sugar-hungry kids.

Where: 1720 Festival Plaza Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89135


4. The Angry Butcher

If your dad is a real meat and potatoes kind of guy, he’ll be right at home at this classic steakhouse.  With cuts ranging from a seven-ounce filet to a 24-ounce bone-in rib eye, there’s something for every appetite. Soups, salads, and fish options will keep non-meat eaters happy as well. The Angry Butcher is located in the Sam’s Town casino, so you can give Dad a roll of pennies and let him go nuts on the penny slots after dinner.

Where: 5111 Boulder Highway, Las Vegas, NV 89122


5. Eat

With a commitment to supporting local farmers, artists, and charities, Eat is truly a neighborhood restaurant, and the laid back atmosphere is a welcome alternative to downtown Las Vegas’ more formal options. The exclusive focus on breakfast and brunch gives chef/owner Natalie Young the freedom to experiment. The truffled egg sandwich with wild mushrooms is just one example of the kind of unique dishes you won’t find on every menu. It’s worth the visit just to try the cinnamon biscuits with strawberry compote.

Where: 707 Carson Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101


6. Standard and Pour

If you want to get out of Las Vegas proper, this hip gastro lounge is the place to go for creative dishes and inventive drinks. The menu is a modern, American take on classic pub food like mac and cheese, pork chops, burgers, and roast chicken. There are plenty of craft cocktails to choose from, and the skilled bartenders are happy to come up with something special to suit your tastes. At brunch, your drink options expand to include individual or bottomless mimosas, Bloody Marys, and PBRs.

Where: 11261 S. Eastern Avenue #200, Henderson, NV 89052


7. Bardot Brasserie

You might not be able to take your dad on an international vacation for Father’s Day, but you can capture the feeling of dining in a Parisian bistro with a meal at Bardot Brasserie. Every detail of this multi-award winning restaurant was designed with the goal of transporting visitors to a café on the bank of the Seine. While there are options for every palate, more adventurous diners will be delighted by the foie gras parfait, escargots Bardot, and steak tartare. The cheese and wine lists are everything you would expect from a French restaurant.

Where: 3730 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89109


8. Egg & I

Given the restaurant’s name, you won’t be surprised to learn that the Egg & I knows its way around the morning meal. There are six different takes on eggs Benedict, and the omelet, scramble, and hash options might actually be limitless. The choices go well beyond eggs however, and the eight-page menu includes something for everyone. The banana nut muffin earned Egg & I a spot on the list of the best muffins in Las Vegas and is not to be missed.

Where: 4533 W. Sahara Avenue #5, Las Vegas, NV 89102


9. Herringbone

If you want to splash out and treat your dad to a meal to remember, head to Herringbone for California coastal cuisine created by Top Chef finalist Brian Malarkey. From 5PM to close each day, you can opt for their Surf and Turf dinner special, which includes a Tomahawk Ribeye and a lobster. Herringbone is located in Aria, and its extensive drink menu makes it the perfect place to stop before or after hitting the casino.

Where: 3730 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89109


Whether your dad is a foodie who loves a multi-course dinner or someone who’d rather celebrate his special day with a burger and a beer, there’s a restaurant on this list for him.
