Don’t feel bad, Dad.

The list of restaurants offering Father’s Day specials, brunches and deals might not be very long, but it’s probably just because everyone’s still full from Mother’s Day and Easter.

Several restaurants, though, are putting out beefed-up brunches, extending their hours and — in one case — even offering a Sunday beer tasting. Following are some dining options available on Father’s Day, which is Sunday.
