Open For the Holidays: Restaurants for a Key West Thanksgiving & Christmas Dinner 2024

a close up of food

So you’ve made it here for the holidays. However, to many on vacation, cooking a holiday dinner doesn’t sound like an appealing past time in paradise…or maybe it’s just that your hotel room’s kitchen can only boast as far as a coffee pot and microwave. Whatever the reason, there are much more skilled (or at least willing) chefs at the ready to prepare you a holiday feast you won’t soon forget.

Not only are a good number of our local favorites open, many are designing special menus at a set price to eat until your heart is content. So, we’ve compiled a list of the best for you to enjoy…

Indulge in sandy beach views and golden sunsets at Key West’s own Waldorf Astoria known as the Casa Marina. At the Casa, expect all the decadence and class the Keys can offer. Spend your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner like the well-to-do of the early 1900’s did when Flagler built this resort for high society to experience the beauty of the tropics.
