Restaurants open on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day in Northwest Arkansas

We’ve had a handful of requests for information on restaurants that will be open for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so we scoured the internets doing our best to pull a list together.

Since lots of places will likely be open at least part of the day on Christmas Eve, we limited that list to those that will be open and serving some sort of special meal or menu.

The list of places open on Christmas Day includes every place we could find.

Props to the folks on Facebook who helped out with this. We should note, some folks on the thread suggested other places may be open as well, but we haven’t been able to verify them yet. We have verified everyone on the list below will be open as specified, and if we hear back from others, we’ll make sure and add them to the list as they come in.

This is by no means meant to be considered a comprehensive list, as we did not contact every restaurant in town to find out who might be open. If you know of other places that plan to open, feel free to send us a note and we’ll try to add them.

Hope your week is very merry, everyone.
