Many of the hotels like the Embassy Suites, Clarion, Marriott, etc. will be open and probably have a "traditional" buffet. Of course, Chinese restaurants are known to frequently be open on Christmas.

thx for the tips. As for duck, tried it a few times ( have relatives who hunt waterfowl back home ) but just never really could find it to my liking.
Guess maybe "traditional" dinner can mean something different to many people, just looking for some potential options instead of staying home our first time down here.
I can say that so far, winter in the south has not sucked! Already missed out on the first bad snowstorm back in Wi ( 18" near our old home ) so no complaints here....

I think the duck comment was a joke referring to the fact that Chinese restaurants (which serve duck) are often the only places open on Christmas.

Have you never watched "A Christmas Story" and learned about Chinese turkey?

Shame on you

Default Place to Eat on Christmas...

Okay - here is a real response and not some smart ass reply. I noted that there are several Waffle Houses that are open. Don't know if you enjoy diner style grease for Christmas, but that is apparently the SC option.

Good luck.
