Sure, there’s a whole slew of ways to celebrate Father’s Day. One that everyone can agree upon? Eating, of course. Whether your papa’s dining style veers towards lobster or steaks the size of his head, there’s something for everyone on the list below.

In addition to a world-inspired Bloody Mary bar, The restaurant will also have a three-course, prix-fixe brunch and dinner menu with options like buttermilk pancakes with sliced banana and mixed berries, spring pea soup with sourdough croutons, and an omelette with Gruyere Cheese, crispy potatoes, tomato salad and toast .
Brunch will be served 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and dinner 5-10 p.m. 100 Stuart St., Boston, marketbyjgboston.com

The added bonus here at this Back Bay steakhouse? An extra gift for dad—when you book a reservation for Father’s Day brunch, he’ll get a $25 dining card. He’ll probably already be happy with plates like the Filet Mignon Benedict, Filet Mignon Cobb, or the prime rib, but the extra touch never hurts.
$34.95 per person, 217 Stuart St., Boston. Make a reservation here.

The Mandarin Oriental hotel restaurant puts meat-and-potatoes types to work with the “Tomahawk Challenge,” which gives dad a mammoth 30-ounce, bone-in Wagyu tomahawk steak to devour. There’s no prize, except the satisfaction that accompanies downing a hunk of meat the size of your head, of course.
Comes with two sides, $60 per person, 776 Boylston St., Boston, www.mandarinoriental.com/boston/dining

Island Creek Oyster Bar
For less steaky types, ICOB offers brunch with from-the-sea fare like lobster omelets, fried oyster-topped biscuits and gravy, and beer-battered fish and chips. Those with a heartier appetite will appreciate the brunch burger and beer combo, which packages a fried oyster-topped burger with a sangrita-spiced draft brew for $25. There will also be a merrior/terrior tasting from 2-3 p.m, where guests can experience the beauty that occurs when oysters meet their vino match.
Brunch 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m, 500 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, islandcreekoysterbar.com

Cafe Fleuri
The Langham Hotel’s cafe is going for a barbecue-themed brunch on Sunday, but it’ll be a bit more upscale than your average burgers and dogs (think chipotle bbq shrimp brochette, hoisin-glazed bbq duck). To add to the glamour, a flute of champagne is included with your meal.
Seatings between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., $65 for adults, $30 for kids. 350 Franklin St., Boston. Make a reservation here.

The Beehive
Have eggs with a side of jazz at this South End standby, which will be offering meaty brunchtime fare like shortrib-stuffed grilled cheese and steak and eggs.
Brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Beehive, 541 Tremont St., Boston. www.beehiveboston.com.
