Mother's Day is typically the biggest restaurant holiday of the year (because who wants to make mom cook on her day?) but dining halls are starting to catch on and offer masculine meals for dads too.

Here are some local spots offering daddy-o's some delicious dishes on Sunday. Even though Father's Day isn't huge as far as volume goes, we still suggest making a reservation.

And if your pop's favorite restaurant isn't listed below, there's still great deals available during Orlando Weekly's "restaurant weeks," a.k.a. Bite 30, and they're not just for Sunday.

Highball & Harvest at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes
The upscale-casual Ritz restaurant is offering a $99 lunch buffet of Southern-inspired fare and craft beer from 12-3 p.m. on Sunday. Expect a stacked cheese station, brunch bites and entrees like steak, snapper and roast suckling pig. See the rest of the menu here.
4012 Central Florida Parkway, 407-393-4648,

Chroma Modern Kitchen + Bar
Why buy Dad just one beer when he can drink a flight? Chroma is offering a $5 flight of Spectrum beers, and he can pick from the list of four- or five-ounce pours. Hangar steak and Mexican street corn specials are also available.
6967 Lake Nona Blvd., 407-955-4340,

Morimoto Asia
Free. Beer. Alert. If dad is more sushi than steak, head to Disney Springs for a free pint of Crooked Can Brewing Company's Barrel Breaker Lager out of Winter Garden. Lagers are perfect to pair with spicy Asian fare, so order a bowl of the tempuraed rock shrimp bathed in spicy Korean gochujang to start.
1600 Buena Vista Dr., Lake Buena Vista, 407-939-6686,

Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House
Nothing says "Dad, you're great" like a really expensive steak. Del Frisco's has you covered. They're offering the steak of his choice paired with a Blood Orange Manhattan so strong he'll forget that time you left your crayons to melt in the back of his BMW.
9150 International Dr., 407-351-5074,

Urbain 40
Since chef Tim Keating has taken over the place, you can expect a lot more than just escargot on the menu (though that's still there, too). For Dad's Day, you'll find a she-crab bisque, steak and eggs, surf and turf, and a dessert trio featuring candied bacon — because duh.
8000 Via Dellagio Way, 407-872-2640,

TR Fire Grill
Smoked prime rib is on the menu at this Winter Park boy-friendly boite. The $35 prix fixe menu features not only that cut of beef, but fingerling potatoes, Brussels sprouts, salad and a non-alcoholic beverage.
1035 N. Orlando Ave., #101, Winter Park, 407-708-3600,
