Father’s Day Italian Steakhouse

We have a fabulous network of local meat vendors and we move thru them over the year.  But for Father’s Day, we love to pull out the stops and bring in a bunch of different chops and steaks in honor of Dad or for meat lovers of any presentation!

Father’s Day Steakhouse

Friday, June 15 thru June 17

If you are a dad, function as a dad even if you are a mom or not related by  blood, if you have a dad, sorta dad or just someone you lean on for dad~like support, or if you are simply a carnivore, the Father’s Day Italian Steakhouse at the Grotto is for you.

And if you are a fan of our Fiorentina, we are getting one entire rib & will have 7 Fiorentina for the entire weekend!  {6 if Kay & I decide to enjoy one ourselves}

We will offer wine madness {wines $60+ are 50% off} so if dad is a wine-lover, this is a super weekend to come to the Grotto.
