Eating for Freedom!

Last Updated: July 3, 2024By

To help you better celebrate your freedom to eat out whenever you want, including holidays, here’s a non-comprehensive list of locally owned spots that will be open for Independence Day. As a rule, hotel restaurants are open every day, and while most aren’t locally owned, a few are. To save you a little time, all 84 Hospitality, Hal Smith Restaurants and Killer Squid concepts will be closed for the holiday. You’re probably wondering why I didn’t link all these places, and it’s because I trust you to either know the place or know how to find it online. I believe in you.
