9 Restaurants Open in Nashville on Christmas Day

Christmas is certainly looking different for a lot of people this year. With COVID-19 limiting social gatherings and travel, it may seem like too much to prepare a big dinner. Fortunately, we found nine places in Music City that are open for business on Christmas Day, either to dine-in or take home with you. Click on each restaurant’s name for specific details, including special hours, reservation requirements and the latest COVID-19 updates.

1. Ruth’s Chris Steak House

It’s the holidays, so why not treat yourself to a steak dinner? In addition to regular menu items, there are special holiday offerings as well, including Lobster Tails served with a Filet.

2. Pinewood Social

Pinewood Social has something sure to appeal to everyone, from the healthy Grain Bowl to the decadent Shrimp & Crab Risotto. But by all means, save room for their Chocolate Caramel Tart. Trust us.

3. The Palm

Eating at The Palm feels like a celebratory occasion anyway, so why not celebrate Christmas? A 26 oz. Prime Rib will be available, along with two sides and dessert, for $75. Available for both dine-in and take-out. Even Santa would approve of that Christmas dinner.

4. Hard Rock Café

Hard Rock Café will be open for lunch and dinner, with a limited menu, Choose between a two or three course dinner, and of course enjoy a glass of something sparkling as well.

5. The Sutler

The Sutler might be the solution for families with different tastes. Housing three bars in one place, choose from a Smoked Brisket Taco or a Southern Harvest Salad, and plenty of options in between. A live bluegrass brunch is also scheduled to take place Christmas morning.

6. Capitol Grille

Capitol Grille’s menu practically screams holiday celebration. With everything on the menu from seafood items like Maine Diver Scallops, to delicious steaks and even a Lamb Porterhouse, it should go without saying that their Sticky Toffee Pudding is a must on December 25.

7. Mother’s Ruin

Mother’s Ruin has food we didn’t know we wanted, but now we can’t forget, like the Old Bay Waffle Fries, or the Creole Shrimp Roll. Their cocktails are also beyond amazing, including the I Don’t 108, which is Bourbon, Hot Cider, Lemon and Honey. Holiday necessity, indeed.

8. Butcher & Bee

OK, so we love all of their food, but it’s honestly worth going on Christmas Day or any other day, just for their Whipped Feta. It’s that good. Really. But also, so is everything else.

9. Del Frisco’s Grille

Del Frisco’s Grille is offering a special seasonal menu, including Roasted Prime Rib, Steamed Lobster Tails and more. A specialty bottle of wine will also be available for only $45.
