What’s not to love about celebrating your birthday? It’s the one day out of each year that’s just about you. You probably get to see friends and family. And hear from people that you haven’t heard from in a while, too. And sometimes you even get presents or a special day out. And, without fail, on my birthday I always get a free meal… not from my friends or family but from some of my favorite restaurants for free. Many restaurants around the country offer a free meal or dessert on your birthday. Here are some of my favorites:
Eat like an Italian for Free on Your Birthday
Brio Tuscan Grille give their MyBrioRewards members a free meal on their birthday. Just sign up on their website and then on your birthday they’ll deduct up to $15 off of your check (or the value of your entree if it’s less than $15).
Get a Free $30 Birthday Gift Certificate from Benihana During Your Birthday Month
Sign-up for Benihana’s Chef’s Table email list on their website, and come your birthday month they’ll email you a certificate worth up to $30 off your bill so you can enjoy some of Benihana’s delicious Japanese food.
Register Your Starbucks Gift Card for Free Food and Drinks
If you use a Starbucks card or the Starbucks app to buy your coffee, not only will you earn points toward free food and drinks, you’ll also receive a free food or beverage item of your choice on your birthday.
Free Grand Slam Breakfast at Denny’s
One of the first national chains to offer a free meal in your Birthdays, Denny’s never disappoints with their free Grand Slam breakfast. Bacon, sausage, pancakes, and eggs are a great way to begin your big day.

Houlihan’s will show you double the love when you join their email list. When you sign-up you’ll get a coupon for a free appetizer and then another once each year on your birthday.
Celebrate Your Birthday like a Rock Star
The Hard Rock Cafe has always been a great place to celebrate a birthday or any special occasion. But now it’s even better because on your birthday you can select one of their decadent desserts, including my favorite the Chocolate Molten Cake which is oozing with warm chocolate goodness.
