Asheville Restaurants Open on Christmas and New Year's


Asheville welcomes you for the holidays! It's an exciting time to be in town as Asheville shines with twinkling lights, festive traditions and exciting New Year's celebrations!

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

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.

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.

We will continue to update this post throughout the season as more information becomes available to us. Please continue to check in for updates. (Updated: 10/19/2023)
