These restaurants certainly get in the Holiday spirit

IHOP and Denny's have a friendly rivalry going over whose Christmas pancakes are better. 

There’s nothing wrong with deciding to dine out on Christmas, and there are plenty of chain restaurants that do a great job of getting into the Holiday spirit. Should you decide to dine out this year, keep these places in mind.

Buca di Beppo

Locations of Buca di Beppo will be open on Christmas, and each location has semi-private dining rooms that can be rented for families to celebrate with family-style dishes, and they’ll be chock-full of Christmas decorations.


Check to see if your local IHOP is open on Christmas, because there are few chains that do a better job of celebrating the holidays. Most locations are decorated for the occasion, and there are plenty of festive new menu items, like pumpkin cheesecake pancakes.

Boston Market

Boston Market has created an entire menu of heat-and-serve Christmas favorites, like ham, sweet potato casserole, dinner rolls, and apple pie. If your local location is open, you’ll be able to dine in as well. This year's Christmas Day meal deal gives you ham, turkey, or chicken and any two sides for $11.99. 


Not every location is open on Christmas, but most of the ones that are go all-out with their decorating.



Every Denny’s location is open 24/7, which means that they’re open Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. In fact, Christmas is Denny’s busiest day, so your nearest location will definitely have that festive spirit.
