Here are 13 Tampa Bay restaurants that are open on Christmas Day. Looking to start some new Christmas day traditions? Instead of laying in your pj’s all day watching A Christmas Story on loop, head over to one of these spots for brunch or dinner.
We tried to stay away from big chains like Waffle House and just focus on local Tampa Bay restaurants. These places will be open, but they may have abbreviated hours so check before making your plan. Don’t wait until the last minute to google search “Restaurants open near me.” These places may also be packed for the holiday, so we recommend making a reservation in advance. Also, many of these Tampa Bay restaurants will offer a prefixed Holiday menu as well as their full menu! Be sure to check all your options before booking your reservation.
