Easter Brunch - Page Six
In 2013 Easter is March 31st. You should make a reservation for any restaurant on Easter Sunday. Some may require prepayment and may have a cancellation fee for no-shows. Unless otherwise stated, tax and gratuity are not included in the mentioned prices.
Most of these brunches, but not all, are buffets. Some offer an à la carte menu or a prix-fixe brunch. Resort casual attire will be appropriate at most of these restaurants. Prices quoted may or may not include beverages.
Keep checking back -- I update this list often until a few days before Easter. Easter Egg Hunts and other Easter holiday events and festivals are listed here.
