Last year, Easter was the first major holiday hit hard by the pandemic. Egg hunts were canceled, church services streamed online, and restaurants offered some of their very first family-style meals to-go. This year, dine-in is back, but many restaurants have kept the option of curbside pick-up for family feasts.

Here’s who’s serving feasts, in-house or to-go, for Easter weekend in Fort Worth (and the list will grow as more are announced). Heading over to Dallas? That list is here. Don't wait to book for the April 4 holiday, as reservations fill up fast.
