Admittedly, Angry Orchard isn’t exactly the place to bring dad for a meal. It is the place to bring him for onsite cider sipping and tours of the orchard. Grab a picnic table at the cider garden parking lot, then taste-test the orchard’s famous ciders while you enjoy live music by Moonshine Creek Bluegrass Band from 2–5 p.m.

This farm-to-table restaurant at the famous Hasbrouck House is now open seven days a week – that means Father’s Day, too! The Hudson Valley-inspired plates are so stunning you’ll want to snap a picture before dad digs in. Get the festivities started with charred shishito peppers, follow up with braised short ribs or roasted salmon, and bring the meal to a sweet conclusion with butterscotch pudding or one of their many after-dinner cocktails.
