Finding the perfect way to celebrate Father’s Day can be stressful, but let Macon’s many great restaurants and attractions do the work for you this year! Here’s a playbook that will lead you to victory with good times and unforgettable moments this Father's Day.

Morning Brunch and Drinks

Start the day with a Father’s Day brunch at H & H Restaurant. This historical soul-food stop has operated since 1959 and is known for its delicious southern cuisine that fueled the Allman Brothers Band in the early 1970s. Today it is still bustling with businesses and is a favorite by locals and visitors alike. We recommend starting with the Soul Rolls and then moving on to their breakfast or lunch menu, depending on your taste at the hour! They have a wide variety of biscuit combinations like the Midnight Rider which has fried chicken with bacon jam and pimento cheese. Is your mouth watering yet? 

The Midnight Rider Biscuit is just one item from the brunch menu at H&H Soul Food in Macon.

Continue the day by making a pit stop or two at a local brewery.
