Dollar-minded Dads will love these Father's Day drink deals.

No one appreciates a good deal like dear old Dad. When taking out the old man for a Father’s Day dinner on Sunday, show him that he instilled in you the value of a dollar by working the discounts. Who knows, maybe you’ll finally earn that patriarchal approval you’ve always sought.

Cafe Maude

5411 Penn Av. S., Mpls. • 612-822-5411 •

There’s no better way to thank him for reaming out your Little League coach or intimidating your high school boyfriends than with a three-course meal at Maude. At only $25, this dad-friendly prix fixe also comes with a tap beer or glass of house wine. This Sunday- and Monday-night special warrants sans-dad excursions, too.

Stella’s Fish Cafe

1400 W. Lake St., Mpls. • 612-824-8862 •

Satisfying a father-sized appetite isn’t always easy. Luckily Stella’s Dad’s Day deals defy portion control. All day Sunday (while supplies last), whole 1.5-pound lobsters and 16-ounce ribeyes are $25. He’ll be so busy chewing, he won’t be able to grumble about why you’re not doing anything with your life. 

Mill Valley Kitchen

3906 Excelsior Blvd., St. Louis Park • 952-358-0000 • www.millvalley

If someone in the family’s toting a tyke, Mill Valley makes a budget-savvy destination. From 4-9 p.m. on Sundays, the SLP eatery feeds wee ones under 12 for free with a paying adult. Sure, this deal’s only good for the child-rearing, but be thankful your disposable income isn’t wasted on SpongeBob merch.
