Restaurant Military and Veterans Discounts

Bob Evans, Outback Steakhouse, and more restaurant chains offer discounts to the military.  Here’s the EatDrinkDeals roundup of restaurant discounts for the military.

Many restaurants have policies that will allow military discounts, but they are at the discretion of individual stores or franchisees.  While those discounts can still be valid, we do not list those restaurants here to ensure a consistent experience for our all of our EatDrinkDeals users across the U.S.  The only discounts listed are those that can be verified on the restaurant website to ensure accuracy for our users.  You can use the links in the story below to each restaurant’s website to confirm the discount with your cashier or server ahead of time.

In addition to discounts for active and retired military, some places extend their discount to other community service members such as police, firefighters, first responders, and teachers.

If you spot any other restaurants that offer a military discount, please contact us at and provide a website link if applicable so we can add the deal.  Thank you!
