The five course tasting menu was a great deal so that drew us in. I ended up getting full sized portions and loved every bite. The ribs were incredible. The shrimp and clam linguini was great. The dessert was great. Nice place!

I second the advice of another traveler to just call them and ask. Since the restaurant is part of a resort complex, I would be amazed if it did not operate on Christmas Day. But it might offer a buffet or some other type... More

They have an extensive wine and alcohol menu so one does not need to bring ones own wine. Most restaurants with alcohol license do not allow outside alcohol.
