Restaurants Open On Christmas

Christmas is such a joyous and merry time to come together with loved ones to savor friendships and family, to do a little more for others, and to recognize that we don’t always take time to let those we care about know what they mean to us. For some, it’s important to celebrate Christmas without the hustle and bustle of cooking up a large festive meal in the kitchen.  If you would like to leave the cooking of your festive feast to someone else, check out our fabulous list of restaurants that will be open on Christmas Day ready to serve your party with delicious food and drinks.  If you happen to know of a restaurant open on Christmas Day that is not on our list, please let Indy With Kids know so that we can add it.  From our family to yours, we wish you a holiday season filled with merriment, comfort and joy!
