Easter Sunday can mean a large family meal for those who celebrate. But if you don’t celebrate the holiday or would just rather eat out, there are plenty of ways to have a fun weekend.

Some businesses do close down on Easter Sunday, but we’ve compiled a list of places that will remain open on April 16. It’s always smart to confirm with your local restaurants before heading over, because hours can change depending on the region and some franchises let individual managers set their own hours.

With all that in mind, here is a list of restaurants that will welcome you in this Easter Sunday, according to

Applebee’s — The grill and bar will be open for Easter Sunday, although hours may vary depending on location.

Bob Evans — All locations will be open with regular store hours.
