In 2013 the date for Easter is March 31. If you are looking for a restaurant in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area where you can enjoy an Easter Brunch or dinner, one of these restaurants will be happy to host you. Reservations are required at all these Easter dining establishments. Some may require prepayment and 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.
More Easter Brunch Tips:
- Some of these restaurants have Easter activities for the kids. They all have special pricing for children's meals.
- Resort casual attire will be appropriate at most of these restaurants. If you intend to wear a tee shirt and shorts to Easter brunch, call first.
- Prices quoted for brunch may or may not include beverages.
Keep checking back -- I update this list up until a few days before Easter. Easter Egg Hunts and other Easter holiday events and festivals are listed here.
