If your dad is anything like mine, there are a few things he truly enjoys: seafood, beef, beer and sports. If you’re not cooking up a steak for him at home, there are restaurants around town that will do that for you — along with burgers stacked high with luxe ingredients, seafood buffets, brunch, bloody mary bars and pours of Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year. We’ve rounded up a list of deals to celebrate your old man at 21 Chicago and suburban restaurants.
