Take some of the stress out of the holiday season and make reservations for Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant. Some offer the traditional turkey with all the trimmings while others may present their own creative culinary take on the classics. Also many restaurants offer to prepare your food ahead, so you may serve at home- we’ve listed some options at the bottom of the list.
According to the National Restaurant Association (NRA), 15 million Americans choose to dine out for the biggest meal of the year. That’s not including the additional 4 million takeout customers who order their bird to go.
And don’t forget to ask for leftovers, some restaurants will pack you a little take home box so you can have a turkey sandwich later.
Here are the places we’ve confirmed so far:
Bob Evans open 8am – 8pm
Tender, hand-carved slices of turkey breast over our bread & celery dressing, topped with pan-roasted gravy and served with cranberry relish. Served with your choice of one or two savory sides and freshly baked bread. $14.99
