Having trouble finding the perfect way to spend the day with dad? We've come up with Father's Day festivities for every kind of dad. Whether he's looking for a trip to the batting cage or a hearty beef buffet, make sure to spend the day doing something he'll love with these local favorites.
400 Littleton Road, Westford
For the fun-loving dad, head down to Kimball Farm in Westford, MA. There you’ll be able to bond with dad over a round of mini golf, a trip to the batting cages or some time in the bumper boats. After the fun, stay for the food. There will be an all-day BBQ with ice cream sundaes and a band.
25 Edwin H. Land Blvd., Cambridge
For the meat loving father, check out Bambara Restaurant in Cambridge. Head chef Jay Silva will be serving up ribs, coleslaw and house-made cornbread paired with Mayflower Beer on draft. Enjoy Dad’s favorites by the Charles and then hit the Museum of Science or spend some time on the Esplanade.

Foundry on Elm will be open from 10:30AM – 3:00PM this Father’s Day, providing a feast for the whole family. Slow roasted prime rib and mustard roasted ham take center stage, but chef Shayne Nunes isn’t stopping there. Brunch includes crepes, French toast, custom omelets, pastries and fresh fruit.

If the dad in your life is a big music fan, take him down to Beat Brasserie to be transported to the Appalachians with some live bluegrass. A selection of special dishes will be available for Dad and the kids, from Short Rib Eggs Benedict to chocolate chip pancakes. Brunch is on from 10:00AM – 3:00PM.
