Restaurants That Have FREE Food on Halloween

No, we don’t mean candy! The little ones will have enough of that. Instead, take them out to dinner, on the house. There are a number of restaurants that offer free food to kids – and sometimes adults – on Halloween. We’ve put together a little list for you below.

  • Longhorn SteakhouseOn Halloween, Longhorn Steakhouse is offering free kids meals with the purchase of an adult appetizer. You must have the coupon though, so head over to their Facebook page and click “Get Offer”. You can get a little something too, if you sign up on the Longhorn Steakhouse website.
  • Olive GardenKids 12 and under eat free when they order off the kids menu and their parents (that would be you) have a coupon. To get the coupon, you’ll need to sign up for the Olive Garden newsletter.
  • Red LobsterHead over to the Red Lobster Facebook page to get a free kids meal with an adult entree purchase. Just click “Get Offer” and the coupon will be sent to your email.
  • IHOPAll kids 12 and under will get a free Scary Face pancake when they eat at IHOP on Halloween this year. There’s no catch and no purchase necessary – just ask your server. More detail can be found on the IHOP website and Facebook page.
  • Boston MarketKids eat free when adults purchase an entree. Head to the Boston Market website for your coupon.
  • Old Country BuffetKids eat free at Old Country Buffet when they show up in costume on Halloween from 5 to 8 PM. You can find more details on the Old Country Buffet website, as well as a $3.00 off coupon for the Hotel Transylvania Blu-Ray combo pack.
  • Krispy KremeAnyone who shows up in costume on Halloween gets a free doughnut at Krispy Kreme. A full list of participating locations is listed on the Krispy Kreme website.

Be sure to read the fine print on these coupons or websites, since some restrictions do apply with a few of these promotions. Did we miss any? Are any businesses in your area doing anything special for Halloween?
