Dad deserves some downtime just like anyone else. Sunday brunch is a great way to let your dad, hubby, boyfriend, or significant other, relax and enjoy some great food, drink and your company.

At Makena Beach Resort in Wailea, the Sunday June 19, Father’s Day Brunch menu is impressive; mimosas and sparkling wine are complimentary. An assortment of dim sum, pastries and dessert will attract the eyes and growling stomachs, until the omelet, carving and seafood station grab hold of those conquer and devour instincts.

What’s on the overflowing banquet tables? A pastry station will be weighed down with goodies galore, a “made to order” omelet station will be fired up, a carving station for the carnivores, which includes: slow roasted leg of lamb and prime rib, and a sea of seafood, including, crab legs, shrimp, sushi, sashimi, smoked salmon and scallops. There is also a ridiculous assortment of breads, pates, salads and pastas. Breakfast is a gargantuan affair  with these food offerings. For a complete gander at the menu, visit

Live Hawaiian music will soothe the overworked tummy, and a blissful Sunday will pass in food heaven. Reservations are required. This brunch costs $65 for adults, and $48.75 for children 9-12 years of age, and $32.50 for children aged 4-8.  Call 808-875-5888 for reservations. Brunch begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m.
