Where to Eat for Easter 2024 in Lexington?

Easter comes early this year — Sunday, March 31, 2024. Easter Sunday menus, however, are arriving later than ever, as the hospitality industry barely has time to catch their breath between St. Patrick’s weekend, and getting Easter brunch on the table. 

But you may work up an appetite during all of the 2024 Easter Egg Hunts, so you’re going to need sustenance. You need brunch options. Maybe you’re looking for an Easter Ham? A source for hot cross buns? An Easter buffet or two or three? How about pre-orders you can pick up ahead of time, discard all the boxes, and pretend like you’ve whipped up your own fabulous feast for friends and family?

Ace’s 35th Annual Ultimate Easter Guide has a sampling of options for you. And don’t forget, the holiday may affect typical weekend lunch and brunch hours for many Lexington restaurants. (Call ahead to confirm.)

In a pinch? Did you wait til the last minute? Will you be reduced to taking your family to Jacobson Park after church and hoping a Heron drops a trout on your picnic table? You may still have a few choices. Kentucky’s State Park lodges usually serve holiday menus and buffets, and your favorite Lexington hotel will likely have an array of Easter menus to offer.

Below is a sampling of where to eat for Easter 2024 in Lexington, who is offering pre-order/pickup options for Easter, along with pastries and Easter-themed treats.
