Some people relish the idea of preparing a Christmas Day feast while others prefer the idea of not being in their own kitchen. If you’re one of the latter, we’ve put together this list of Christmas Day dining options just for you.

Goodall's Kitchen and Bar will be serving a brunch and a dinner buffet.

Goodall’s Kitchen and Bar
Brunch 11am-3pm, $65 per adult, $25 per child under 12
Dinner 4pm-8pm, $65 per adult, $25 per child under 12

Located in Hotel Ella, Goodall’s will be offering a buffet of their new American cuisine for both brunch and dinner. The brunch menu includes staples like scrambled eggs, applewood smoked bacon, and warm sticky buns but adds decadent dishes like molasses and winter spiced baked ham served with house-made mustard and parker house rolls. For dinner you can find prime rib and peasant bread and cippolini onion stuffing at the buffet.

Nosh on their hearty hamburgers that have been admired by famous foodies around the world. You can’t go wrong with a Chicago Burger, Amarillo Burger, or anything on their menu. And if you’re a bit of a Grinch, you’ll probably appreciate their horror film inspired decor.
