EatDrinkDeals New Year’s Dining Deals Guide

Several restaurant chains have announced dinner specials for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.  Maybe you want to celebrate a great 2021 (or at least better than 2020), or maybe you’re looking forward to a fresh start in 2022.  Either way, ring in the new year at one of these restaurants and toast to a great deal!  Check back here often as we will post new specials as they are announced.

This list includes links to websites where you can confirm the deal and find further information.  EatDrinkDeals does not post deals that cannot be verified from a source such as the restaurant website, social media account, or press release.  Check your local restaurant to confirm they are participating in the national deal.  Holiday hours can vary quite a bit amongst different locations, and some state laws are more restrictive than others on drink specials.  Also, many places strongly encourage reservations, so keep that in mind.
