Restaurants in the Jefferson Texas area are just waiting to serve you during the Christmas Season. They include some that are staying open later than usual to enable you to enjoy all the festivities in town and then have dinner. Please be sure to give yourself plenty of time for dining before you go on the Candlelight Tour of Homes® or the Rail of Lights Train. This is one of the busiest times of the year, and we want you to have the best time possible. Make reservations if you have a big group.
