  1. Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch or Dinner

Start Father’s Day right with breakfast at the Bluebonnet Cafe. They have been serving up fresh homecooked-style meals since 1929. And with breakfast all day you can start celebrating whenever you want. They are open until 1:45 on Sundays.


An all-time classic burger might be just what dad ordered. Why not try Moonie’s Burger House.
Great juicy burgers with fresh ingredients! We love the El Diablo Burger with grilled jalapenos and diablo sauce and sweet potato fries. The Classic Burger and Philly Cheesesteak (sirloin, mushrooms, pepper jack cheese) are incredible as well. And the Resolution Wrecker, if you’re up to it — we’re not even talking about calories. Twelve years voted Best Burger around. Sweet sourdough buns. Offers lambs, vegan and vegetarian. Great shakes as well.

Nothing could be nicer than a day at the lake casting a line and chatting with dad.

With the right bait and a little patience, you’ll find largemouth bass, catfish and sunfish. Just 10 minutes from downtown Marble Falls, Lake Marble Falls is narrow, and the shorelines are typically steep with rock bluffs or boulders. A few docks and boat houses surround the water’s edge. Cover in the form of aquatic vegetation, standing timber or laydowns is limited.
