The Best Chain Restaurant St. Patrick’s Day Deals
It’s St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, and whether you’re trying to escape the crowd of green beer-drinking partygoers or find a place to join in, these chain restaurants have got you covered. Some of your favorite restaurants are offering St. Patrick’s Day deals and dishes not just for the big day, but during the entire month of March!
While you can pop in to Applebee’s and California Pizza Kitchen for festive drinks, you can get a full Irish meal at Yard House and Cracker Barrel, including the best meal for St. Paddy’s day. Feel like picking up doughnuts for the office or your kid’s school celebration? We know two different chains offering special menu items (including something totally green) that will have you feeling as lucky as a leprechaun.
While you may be somewhere in America, these chain restaurants will bring the magic of Ireland to you with their fun and festive special menu items and St. Patrick’s Day deals.
Applebee’s “Neighborhood Drink of the Month” is extra festive for March. They’re serving $2 Absolut Rainbow Punch all month long. The green apple, ginger, and lemon drink is topped with a rainbow gummy garnish. There probably isn’t a pot of gold at the bottom of your glass, though.
California Pizza Kitchen
California Pizza Kitchen is getting in to the St. Patrick’s Day spirit! The chain is offering a $5 Irish Mule, made with Jameson Whiskey, in all participating restaurants.
You might not know this about Chili’s, but the chain offers a special margarita every month. March’s “Marg of the Month” is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. The chain is offering their “Lucky Jameson,” which features Jameson Irish Whiskey, Lunazul Tequila, triple sec and fresh sour. It’ll be available for $5 all month long.
If you’re feeling hungry for an Irish feast, Cracker Barrel is serving up corned beef and cabbage nationwide from March 11 to 17. The authentically Irish dish includes hand-sliced corned beef with boiled cabbage, sweet whole baby carrots, and red potatoes, served with spicy brown mustard. It also comes with homemade buttermilk biscuits or corn muffins!
Not only has Dunkin’ brought back its Irish Crème flavored coffees and espresso drinks, in honor of the holiday, seven Dunkin’ restaurants across America will be rebranded as “O’Dunkin’” on March 6. For one day only, the first 250 guests at the redecorated Dunkin’ restaurants (complete with new exterior signage and festive St. Patrick’s Day décor inside) will be offered a free small hot or iced Irish Creme flavored coffee or latte.
Hard Rock Cafe
From March 13 to 17, the Hard Rock Cafe is offering customers a boozy St. Paddy’s Shake made with Absolut vanilla vodka, vanilla ice cream, Oreo cookies, mint and homemade white chocolate whipped cream topped with rainbow candy ribbons and gold star sprinkles.
From March 11 to March 17, Islands is offering "The Green Island." The $7 drink is Islands’ signature Long Island iced tea with a tangy melon and lime twist.
If you’re feeling a St. Patrick’s Day doughnut, Tim Hortons is offering a festive Clover Donut four-pack. This clover leaf-shaped set is available at all U.S. locations and features four heart-shaped doughnuts with Venetian cream filling and topped with white fondant and green sprinkles.
From March 4 through April 8, Yard House is offering diners Irish-inspired fare such as whiskey black pepper wings, corned beef egg rolls, shepherd’s pie and mash, grilled Guinness cheddar and braised beef melt, and whiskey glazed salmon as well as a drink menu including a Dublin mule, a Jameson margarita, and varieties of Guinness, as well as green beer (which might be bad for you). If there isn’t a Yard House near you, you can definitely grab a pint at one of America’s 25 best Irish pubs.
