Christmas will look very different this year with restaurants at reduced capacity, mandatory reservations, and some even offering takeout versions of dinner. These special prix fixe menus bring holiday meals without the hassle of spending hours in the kitchen. Keep in mind that many restaurants inside a casino are open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so if a favorite isn’t listed, it probably serves something for the holiday. If dining at home sounds safer, many of these restaurants also have options for takeout, with feasts to feed entire families. So sit back and eat yourself into a food coma without the worry of having to do the dishes this year at one of these restaurants.

A number of Las Vegas restaurants have resumed dine-in service. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in Las Vegas, please visit Nevada Health Response. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
