Bayside brunch

Ready to spoil Dad with an afternoon or evening dining in a restaurant again?

June 21 is Father’s Day, and Newport Beach restaurants are ready to welcome you and your family to enjoy a special Father’s Day meal. Most restaurants are open for dining, but a few have special Father’s Day menus meant to highlights dishes dads will enjoy. Some restaurants even offer special Father’s Day barbecue kits to-go for those who prefer to partake in a family dinner at home.

Bayside is cooking up something special on Father’s Day. The restaurant offers both  brunch (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and dinner (5 p.m. to close) on Father’s Day, with live music during both seatings.

The two-course brunch menu comes with complimentary free-flowing Champagne or draught beer for $49, with items like steak and eggs, rack of lamb, a breakfast burger, the Bayside Benedict, and wild mushroom crusted halibut. Bayside also has a two-course menu for the kiddos, so they can join in the fun.

The full dinner menu is back, and will be available the evening of Father’s Day.

The Bungalow patio

The Bungalow

The Bungalow Restaurant is going all-out for Father’s Day—the restaurant is offering a special three-course (plus sides) Father’s Day BBQ menu from 2 to 9 p.m. for $45 per person, and a three-course Prime Rib dinner from 2 to 9 p.m. for $45 per person.

Both dinners begin with a choice of three starters, then the entrees change course. The BBQ menu offers a choice of main entrees, including baby back ribs, half BBQ chicken, grilled king salmon, mixed grill kabob, and grilled flat iron steak. The prime rib dinner entrée is – you guessed it – prime rib: 10 oz. prime rib of beef, plus large Idaho russet baked potato, broccolini, au jus, and creamy horseradish.
