If you'll be here in the mountains for Christmas or New Year's, you may be asking, "What restaurants will be open?"

We have worked with the Asheville Independent Restaurant Association and others to help answer that question for you with this list of local eateries that will be open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day in Asheville. There may be other restaurants open on these holidays. If you are looking for your favorite chain restaurant, many of those will be open as well.

Please note: According to a state order, restaurants, breweries, wineries and taprooms must close at 10 p.m. and end alcohol service at 9 p.m. Take-out/delivery services can continue after 10 p.m. (if offered by the business). For the most current information, check the restaurant’s listings and official website or social channel.

As with any holiday, we highly recommend calling the restaurant before finalizing your plans to check availability, menus and whether reservations are required. Click on the name of restaurant for contact information.
