When vacationing during the holidays, sometimes dining can be the most frustrating activity, especially when you just don’t feel like preparing meals. Trying to find a restaurant that’s open on New Year’s Eve can be next to impossible, and hunger pangs may lead to eating the jerky and trail mix you packed for travel, but this won’t be an issue during your Virginia getaway! We’ve done the legwork by calling ahead to some of our favorite places, and we have created this list of restaurants that are open on the last night of the decade, so all you have to do is show up at the door! (Some do require reservations to be made, and that information is included in the list.) After a long day of exploring the beauty of Smith Mountain Lake’s winter wonderland, be it hiking in the brisk air or enjoying a taste of the Bedford Wine Trail, these Smith Mountain Lake restaurants offer the perfect way to say farewell to the old year and welcome the new year.
