Dining on Father’s Day

Food is the way to many people’s hearts, so why not show dad your love over a mouthwatering meal? From BBQ to the freshest-caught gulf seafood, Coastal Mississippi has plenty of options for your Father's Day meal. Consider Half Shell Oyster House for delectable seafood dishes in an upscale setting, or Jack’s by the Tracks which features sushi, tacos, and live music. Murky Waters BBQ also has three locations across The Secret Coast for you to get your hands on some slow-smoked barbecue chicken, pork, and brisket. Whichever restaurant you choose, you’ll find amazing flavors that are sure to satisfy dad on his special day.


If dad is feeling adventurous, stop by one of the region’s craft breweries, inspired by local waterways, islands and the unique characteristics of The Secret Coast. The Rad Sipper provides a luxurious, multi-brewery limousine tour for up to nine guests aged 21 and over, so you can try several of the top craft breweries on The Secret Coast.

Outdoor Experiences

Spend some quality time with dad by sharing a unique coastal experience this Father’s Day. With tons of specialty rental options to kayak, paddleboard, jet-ski, and go boating across The Secret Coast, it’s easy to get out on the water to experience our natural landscapes in their purest form. As a National Heritage Area, Coastal Mississippi’s natural, cultural, and historic resources combine to form a cohesive and nationally important landscape that celebrates our nation's diverse heritage.

For even more action, check out Gulfport Boardsports for lessons in water sports like kiteboarding, windsurfing, and wing foiling, or book a fishing charter with any of our experienced Secret Coast captains to bring home a big one. Our peaceful, warm waters offer everything from freshwater to brackish water to saltwater fishing, and there are 200 species of fish up for grabs.
