30 Restaurants Open on Christmas 2021 – Where to Eat on Christmas

For most families, returning to the same Christmas traditions year after year is a big part of what makes the holiday so special. It's true for the Drummonds, at least: Just look at their matching family Christmas pajamas! Still, you might be looking to shake things up a little bit in 2021…in which case, checking out these restaurants open on Christmas could be a great idea.

Think about it: You can still enjoy a holiday meal together, but you can skip all the stress of planning and cooking. It's a win-win! The best part is, most of these restaurants offer heat-and-serve options or takeout, meaning you can pick up the food and enjoy it at home together. Stop by your favorite coffee shop and enjoy a little pick-me-up after all of the gift-wrapping and Christmas activities with family. And then, a steakhouse dinner from Del Frisco's or Morton's enjoyed in the comfort of your PJs? Sign us up!

That said, if you're in need of some last-minute snacks to round out the meal, there are plenty of grocery stores open on Christmas this year. And while you're at it, why not take a look at stores open on Christmas, too? Just remember: You'll want to call ahead to be sure your local store is actually operating under the hours we've listed.
