At Golden Corral in St. Joseph, a special menu attracted dads and their families.
General Manager Chris Jones says Father's Day is their second busiest day of the year, right behind Mother's Day.
He said it's great to see families come together on holidays.
"There's a lot more patience," Jones said. "There tends to be a lot more respect in the air when families come out like this."
Golden Corral featured baby back ribs, roast beef and jumbo shrimp for the dads to eat.
The restaurant had a similar turnout last Father's Day.
