Easter Sunday is April 17 this year, and while it's not a federal holiday in the United States, it is still widely celebrated. Whether it's a major religious holiday for you, or you simply enjoy the more secular parts of the Easter holiday (think dyeing Easter eggs and picking up Easter flowers), there's something fun for everyone. For the holiday, many restaurants (especially local ones) may be closed, as restaurants give employees an opportunity to celebrate the day with their families.

If you're looking for a big Easter feast to enjoy via takeout, or you're hoping to eat out, there are still plenty of restaurants that are open on Easter this year. Whatever your dining plans are, make sure to call ahead to your local restaurant or reach out to them before Easter weekend to see if they will be open. Even if national chains are open on Easter, individual restaurants may choose to close for a number of reasons—and you don't want to come home empty-handed and with empty stomachs.

Keep in mind that some chain restaurants, like Chick-Fil-A, are closed every Sunday, but other restaurants that are typically open on Sundays are planning to close for the Easter holiday, such as Jason's Deli. Below is a list of chain restaurants that will have locations open and operating on Easter Sunday.
