Christmas Dinner or Brunch ?

My husband and two teenagers (girls) will be staying in Jackson MS for a few days during our road trip. We'd like to have a Christmas meal (brunch or dinner) somewhere nice. We're not seafood eaters (my husband's the only one who will eat it). We won't have dress-up clothes with us so nothing that requires suit/tie. Have no idea what will be open on Christmas day.

Price Range: $30-$35 pp.

We'll have a rental car so we can go outside of Jackson too.

Thank you in advance :)

A lot of places are closed.

1818 at Monmouth plantation in Natchez is usually open.

Might check visitor center in both Vicksburg and Natchez. Vicksburg is scenic and right on MS river.

I might call 10 South or Roca (both in downtown Vicksburg) and see if they will be open.

Or possibly Cedar Grove Mansion in Vicksburg (they have a restaurant but I haven't eaten there in like...fifteen years so I don't know what it's like now but it's a very nice setting). Again, you'll want to call and see if they're open.

There is a FB page called Eat Jackson or you can google EAT JXN. I just did a search ... and while I'm not a big fan of Jackson ... I live 20 miles south ... I couldn't find a single restaurant open on Christmas Day in Jackson. There are some good restaurants but they all close. It seems like some place must be open !!?? I do know that the most enjoyable thing to do when I'm stuck in Jackson during Christmas is to attend midnight mass at St Andrews Cathedral on Capitol st in downtown Jackson. Starting around 10:30 PM the music begins and it is incredible. They really put on a show !! It's a beautiful old Episcopal church and all are welcome.

The restaurant at the Hilton does a Christmas lunch but it is pricey. They also have a brunch buffet restaurant on Saturdays that might be open for Christmas Day.
