*Update* This is our last posting of Easter restaurant reservation options. All the information we’ve gathered is listed here.
Easter is only days away, but some families that celebrate together may still be finalizing dining plans. Whether you celebrate Easter intimately with just your immediate family or if your entire clan comes together from across the country to take advantage of the holiday reunion opportunity, you’re going to need to eat. And while some families pitch in for giant home-cooked feasts, others would prefer to let a restaurant cook for them.
Outback Steakhouse – Outback is open as usual for Easter. The menu isn’t any different, but they have a good deal if you’re bringing kids. In honor of the holiday, you can buy any adult entree and get a FREE kids meal.
Edward’s Drive-In – From noon to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 31, Edward’s is offering a buffet featuring fried chicken, glazed ham, homemade chicken and noodles, and more.
