65 restaurants open on Easter 2024

After a long day of egg hunting, you might want a professional to handle the ham.

With all the holiday hullabaloo of Easter preparations, you might find yourself reluctant to turn on the stove.

Between boiling eggs for dyeing and cooking up a festive Easter dinner, Easter can easily turn into a culinary marathon.

If you're on the verge of an eggs-istential crisis from all that cooking, then you're in luck: Many of your favorite restaurants will still be open on Easter Sunday.

Rather than heading to the grocery store again, consider treating yourself to some takeout or a nice restaurant outing. Don’t hop over too soon, though: before you start looking at the menu, take a moment to check whether your local restaurants are open.

Given that it’s Easter weekend, many stores and restaurants have adjusted their hours for the holiday.

Fortunately, you don't have to put all your eggs in one basket. We compiled a list of restaurants that you can count on to spare you from cooking on Easter Sunday.
