Restaurants open on Christmas

Restaurants open on Christmas

I know this is thinking WAY in advance, but my family might be stopping in Wheeling on Christmas Day (on our way to visit family further east). Does anyone know of decent restaurants in the area that are typically open on Christmas? We may even want to get take out and eat at the hotel, but we're hoping for something above fast food.

Well, this is not thinking that is "way in advance."

At any rate:

goto

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurants-g596…

and note that each listing has a website as which specifies days open.

Tis unlikely that any Wheeling Hotels/motels will have Christmas restaurants.

Also consider nearby St. Clairville, Ohio

and east of Wheeling is Washington, PA, which may have some choices:

Time may be important. If you are stopping, I am guessing you mean for the night and are looking for a good dinner..

You may be limited to hotel restaurants and truck stops.

Outside of that, the casino http://www.wheelingisland.com/ is my best guess at something that would be open.

Superposer has a valid point: Truck stops.

We have driven I-70 on Christmas for years and found only Truck Stops open.

Many have delis, hotdogs, ...., buffet dining, and other kinds of dining.

Specifically goto:

And both the "ambience and food" is fine.

Wilson Lodge at Oglebay Park has several different restaurants, and they should be open on Christmas Day. In fact, I would bet that the Glassworks Grill or Ihlenfeld Dining Room has a Christmas Day buffet. The Oglebay Festival of Lights is one of the oldest and largest holiday light displays in the East, and is very popular and crowded on Christmas Day. It's the perfect choice for Christmas in Wheeling.

We have enjoyed the Christmas lights for years at Oglesbay.

WVParkfan: Yes - "It's the perfect choice for Christmas in Wheeling."

Certainly is much more Christmas than a Truck stop.

We still agree w WVParkfan:

RE: www.oglebay-resort.com/dining/index.html

However, just remembered that the Wheeling Kroger can assemble a Great Carry out dinner (We may even want to get take out and eat at the hotel.)

You may call Kroger to customize your order, and your hotel should "comp" you either a meeting room or dining space.

Kroger closes early in our state on Christmas. I'd call at least 2 weeks in advance to find out their hours.
