Many restaurants in Ocean City will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but some will remain open to serve people who don’t want to fuss with a big meal, are traveling or who don’t celebrate the holiday.

  • The Deauville Inn in Strathmere is open on Christmas Eve, book here.
  • Adelene At Port-O-Call will be open for breakfast on Christmas Eve from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
  • Plenty of restaurants in Atlantic City are open both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Check them out here.

We’ve curated a list of national chains in the Ocean City area— ranging from formal sit-down restaurants to coffee shops and fast food businesses for people who are on the road for the holidays — that are open Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, unless otherwise noted.

Make sure you call ahead for a reservation and to confirm hours at Ocean City-area locations. Some restaurants may offer limited hours, and not all locations of chains are open for the holidays.
