How To

There is no wrong way to do Savor Fort Wayne — unless you count not participating at all. Keep in mind, however, that each restaurant is different. If you're used to a quick dinner out, you should be prepared to have a longer dinner at some of the fine dining locations. And be patient with restaurants, as many are still running short on staff due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Start planning your Savor Fort Wayne meals by browsing the restaurants and their menu deals.

Dos and Don'ts

Do check out the menus. Remember to make your experience into an adventure!

Do make a reservation, if the restaurant recommends it. Again, Savor can be a busy time, and making reservations can also help the restaurant determine if they need to bring in more staff. 

Do ask your server for the Savor Fort Wayne menu. While the restaurants have their menus posted on, some locations may have had to make changes due to supply issues. Be sure you have the latest info on the restaurant's deal.

Do fill out your STAR Rewards Card as you dine. Pick up a STAR Rewards Card at participating Savor restaurants and STAR Bank Branches, keep track of your Savor meals on the card, and submit the card for a chance to win $500 in dining gift cards! Learn more.

Don't be afraid to splurge a little if you can upgrade your Savor deal. Check out what bonuses a restaurant's Savor deal may have, like extra side options or cocktails.  

Don't forget to save room for the dessert course. This is a 3-course menu deal, after all!

Do tip generously. Your server will appreciate it.

Don't forget to designate a driver. Please enjoy Savor safely and responsibly.

Do share your dining experience with us. We'd love to see the Savor deals you enjoyed. Share on social media with #SavorFW and tag @SavorFortWayne.
