Check out these Central Maine restaurants that are open for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day


Open For Christmas Day

-Aunt Gin's on Rt 17 in Whitefield - They'll be serving prime rib, pork osso bucco, and cornish game hen with mashed potatoes and vegetables.

-Canton Express on Bangor Street in Augusta - If you're more into ribs and lo mein instead of turkey or ham, they'll be open regular hours.

-Denny's on Civic Center Drive in Augusta - Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!  Quick and affordable!  Even if you don't have Christmas dinner there, you can still grab some breakfast after you open your presents.

-Lisa's Restaurant on Bangor Street in Augusta - They are open 365 days a year...  Even CHRISTMAS!  They'll be open at 11, so even if you don't have dinner there, you stop by to have lunch before you start slaving over a hot stove (or plant yourself in front of the pile of parts that will eventually become your kid's new bike).

-Natalie's @ The Camden Harbour Inn - They'll be serving up a special menu

-Otto's On The River on Water Street in Augusta - They are currently taking reservations for Christmas Eve and Christmas dinners.
