Maybe you are looking to take the family and friends out for a meal over the holidays this year, or you just want to get out the kitchen and the house. Some Brentwood restaurants will be open on Christmas Eve, with a handful staying open on Christmas Day as well. Here are a few we have found that will be happy to do the cooking for you this year.
Waffle House at 790 Old Hickory Blvd will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week over the holidays. Their name may be misleading; they offer a wide menu of more than just waffles. But if it's breakfast food you are craving, try the All-Star Breakfast. Customers can get two eggs, a waffle or biscuit, grits, toast, and a choice of bacon, ham, or sausage all for $6.49.
Sperry's, located at 650 Frazier Drive in Cool Springs, will be open on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for dinner starting at 4 p.m., with reservations required.
