The month of June has arrived, which means that summer activities are in full swing and Father’s Day is right around the corner. In order to help all the dads of Citrus Hills enjoy their day, both the Skyview Restaurant and The Grille will be hosting Father’s Day dinner specials.
The Father’s Day special at Skyview is called “Father’s Day Favorites,” and it will include entrees like Prime Rib, London Broil with Mushroom Demi-Glaze, Baked Asiago and Cheddar Mac & Cheese with Italian Sausage, Fried Buttermilk Chicken, Fried Shrimp Basket, or 2 Lobster Rolls. These specials will run from noon through 5:00 pm on Sunday, June 15.
While Skyview will be hosting dads who prefer a more formal setting, The Grille is planning a casual Father’s Day cookout where guests can choose from three different cuts of steak, BBQ ribs, or salmon, which will all be cooked and served right off of the grille. There will also be a buffet of sides that will include salad, a vegetable, a starch, and plenty of desserts. Check out the new tiki bar while you’re there!
