21st Birthday - Birmingham, AL

Tomorrow is my husband and my birthday. He is going to be 23 and I'm going to be 21.

We're new to the area and not sure where to go. Do any restaurants in the area offer free meals or apps or desserts for birthdays? Which ones have a decent enough bar to have some fun?

  1. I think most area restaurants charge for desserts that they provide when they gather to sing "Happy Birthday" or some version of it. For a free meal, I think your only option is Denny's.

    There are many, many restaurants that have good fun bars. You really need to provide a price point and atmosphere rating (casual, formal, etc.) to get an answer to your question. Are chains out of the question? Are you under a time crunch? What area of town are you willing to travel to or stay near?

    1. Some places offer free dessert to the birthday person, but not the whole table. I believe PF Changs does that.
