37 Restaurants That Will Be Open On Easter Sunday

Easter is one of our favorite food holidays. But as much as we love eating spiral ham and bunny-shaped desserts, we don't always have the time and energy to make an elaborate holiday spread. Thankfully, there are plenty of restaurants open across the country that can do the heavy lifting on Easter Sunday. Whether you're in the mood to sit down in a dining room or grab a quick bite at the drive-thru, we've rounded up some of the best Easter dining destinations.

However, it's worth noting that there are almost always exceptions to the rule. Some chain restaurant locations may choose to keep their doors closed over the holiday, so you should call your local spots ahead of time to confirm their hours. Go forth and feast!


You can expect normal Sunday hours at Applebee's locations—go ahead and get your $5 cocktail on.
