    I like that area, tho I haven't been there in 5 yrs. I did a search and found 2 places that have an xmas buffet:
    Cab Frye's
    Palm, Rt. 29.
    near Quakertown/Pottstown/ Allentown
    I remember passing it a few times. looked good.
    Old inn from 1830!

    Also, in Allentown:

    buffet prime rib/virginia ham

      On Christmas Day, about the only restaurants you'll find serving dinner will be hotel restaurants, Japanese steakhouses, Chinese buffets and Waffle House.

      However, the King George Inn usually has a Dickensonian Christmas Eve dinner.

      Cab Frye's is a wonderful restaurant but will be closed for Christmas. The holiday menus on the link are for holiday office parties or similar group dinners.

      There are a couple of country inns where the owners live in the building and they are sometimes open for Christmas dinner. I'll call around and check for you this weekend because many don't have websites.

        I hope that Ruby Rose comes up with something for you. I have an idea though. You might call the Hotel Bethehem and ask them what places in the area are going to be open for dinner. They will probably have some suggestions. Good luck.

          OK, here are the only choices I could find for Christmas dinner:

          Hotel Bethlehem, which is usually booked up before Thanksgiving

          Lehigh Valley Hotel (Rts. 22 & 512) in Bethlehem – dinner buffet from 11:30 to 3:30
 – basic motel dining room food

          The Meadows in Hellertown PA – Christmas buffet 11 A.M. to 4 P.M.
 – wedding reception catering hall

          NYNM already mentioned Gregory’s, which I think is noted more for quantity than quality.

          If you decide to go for Chinese restaurants instead, my choice would be the Dynasty in Emmaus.
