Food is a vital thread woven prominently throughout the tapestry of our memories. A flavor can instantly transport us back to a special place in time, and recalling fond memories at the table with loved ones, you can almost taste a meal shared together across miles and years.
Your family memories at Silver Dollar City this Christmas are sure to be filled with flavor as you taste your way through great food in every corner of the park, from handcrafted burgers at Wagon Works Grill on the Square to brick oven pies at Crossroads Pizza. Plus, find holiday spreads (almost) as good as Mom’s at three home-style buffets. Here’s your insider’s guide to dining during Silver Dollar City’s An Old Time Christmas festival.
There is nothing like coming together with family and friends for a festive holiday feast. There’s really only one thing that could possibly make it more enjoyable – not cooking it! Silver Dollar City has three holiday buffets to please any palate:
Molly’s Mill – If you’re looking for traditional holiday comfort food then look no further. The Holiday Harvest buffet has honey glazed ham, juicy roast turkey, creamy mashed potatoes, savory dressing and so much more.
Reunion Hall – Sink your teeth into heavenly slow smoked prime rib, root beer glazed ham, tender scalloped potatoes, classic green bean casserole…we could go on, but we’re getting too hungry.
Lucky Silver Mine – This one has a barbecue twist for a little something different. Enjoy savory pulled pork, glazed smoked chicken, hearty miner’s stew and an array of mouthwatering sides like rich and creamy macaroni & cheese, crispy fried okra and flavorful green beans.
All three restaurants are conveniently located on the City’s Square and feature family-style seating. Garden fresh salad bar and your choice of a delicious dessert are included.
