If you can, log into OpenTable.com. They publish a list of restaurants open for dinner on holidays and you can make reservations right there on the site. I use them all the time and it's a very helpful feature.

Those are some great ideas!! Thanks everyone. I don't mind eating at a hotel, since I know restaurant dining will be limited.

Chilaili: Thanks about opentable. I use them a lot too and for my bosses so I can get the points!! (you can set up multiple users)

Years ago I used to go to Embassy Suites or Doubletree for the Holiday dinners. Always very nice!!
One of my favorite restaurants was Simms Landing, they are not open for Christmas dinner but, their sister restaurant is...The Chart House in Genessee. Great view also and great Christmas dinner!
Of course, it is a ways from you.

Actually we have to swing by my grandmother's in Lakewood, so Gennessee might not be a bad deal. I love Simms but haven't ever been to Chart House. Thanks Sheridan!!

You've heard right. That's the Christmas tradition in my Jewish family.

We most often go to a movie and then to Spice China in Louisville. Great food and an enthusiastic crowd there on Christmas day (and yes, pretty much all Chinese and Jewish folks there that day). Quite the experience.

You know suzco, I've been meaning to get to Louisville, mainly from you and Katiana's posts. Maybe we'll head out there xmas day. If so, I'll be sure to DM you.

p.s. - The reason why people do Chinese food on these traditional Christian days is because many of us do not celebrate Christian holidays. I was raised Catholic, but I think I was actually reincarnated into the Buddist tradition. Judaism always tempted me, maybe because the nuns could never answer my questions!

I had Denny's for Thanksgiving. It was a pleasant meal with my dad and brother. I went with the Meat Lovers Slam that night.
