Celebrate Father's Day in Scottsdale

By local contributor

Whether you call him dad, papa or pops, your father deserves some appreciation on Father’s Day (June 17, 2018). There’s nothing better than spoiling your dad with your time, so treat him to a special Scottsdale outing on his special day! Here are some great ideas to celebrate Dad this year.



While brunch may feel a little on the feminine side, a lot of places give it a manly makeover with hearty items. Famous 48 dishes up creative offerings like Maple Bourbon chicken and waffles while Daily Dose hits a high note with brunch favorites like breakfast nachos, roasted top sirloin eggs benedict and banana bread French toast. If you’re looking for a more booze-filled-brunch, make your way to Hash Kitchen for their incredible (almost never-ending) Bloody Mary Bar, along with their solid brunch menu.



Stay cool and take dad to the ultimate shooting experience at the Scottsdale Gun Club, offering a state-of-the-art indoor shooting range, training facility and more! If guns aren’t your thing, give your dad the chance to fly like the superhero he is at iFLY, Scottsdale’s indoor skydiving experience. Or make Father’s Day reservations at TopGolf and treat dad to great food and a lot of fun!



The Scottsdale beer scene is growing every year, so what better way to celebrate dad than to enjoy an ice-cold brew together? Visit Goldwater Brewing Co. located in the heart of Old Town, where their tap room boasts 20+ craft beers poured straight from the tanks. With two locations in Scottsdale, McFate Brewing also serves up fine beers in small batches – some local favorites include their Buena Vista Blonde Ale, Fateful IPA and Fatality IPA.  



Surprise dad with tableside steaks, ribs, burgers, or fresh seafood this Father’s Day. Head on over to Don & Charlie’s for a fresh roasted cut of prime rib, or to Citizen Public House for delicious pan seared scallops. If your dad is a true meat lover, make your way to Fogo De Chao for tender and flavorful beef ancho or a perfectly prepared filet mignon.
