Detroit Restaurants Open On Christmas 2016

Skip the Chinese takeout or preparing your own Feast of the Seven Fishes

The tree is trimmed, your stockings are stuffed and all the gifts are wrapped (or the movie showtimes have been selected, if that's more your style). And now you're exhausted. With all of the travel, shopping and prep of the holidays, no one would blame you if you wanted to skip cooking a Christmas feast. Whether you're looking for a way to cut down on your holiday workload or just need somewhere to grab dinner after your annual trip to the theater, here are our top recommendations for restaurants that are open on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day—or both—in Detroit.

Mitchell's Fish Market

There are still plenty of reservations available at this seafood restaurant and bar.


A steak dinner inside the MotorCity Casino Hotel sounds like the perfect respite from any holiday craziness.

Rugby Grille

Both brunch and dinner are being served at this restaurant in Birmingham.

220 Merrill

A classy American restaurant that's the perfect place to celebrate the season with a group.

Fiamma Grille

This spot is closed on Christmas Day. If you're unable to make it here the night before, visit during another weekend to take advantage of the live music.

Also, if you're planning to eat out during the holiday, be sure to call ahead for a reservation so you won't be wandering the cold streets acting like a hangry Scrooge.
