Restaurants Open Thanksgiving Day - 2012

Celebrate Turkey Day in Style at One of These Local Eateries

By

Sometimes the thought of preparing the huge Thanksgiving meal can be daunting. Getting the house ready, decorating and then cooking on top of it. Forget it! Or, maybe you are going to be traveling and won't have time to prepare a meal. While there are many restaurants that are open on Thanksgiving, sometimes it's difficult to find the information. I've compiled a list of restaurants that are advertising they are open. This is by no means a complete list, but it's at least a start. Keep in mind that on holidays, restaurants can be short-staffed and waits can be long. Plan ahead and make reservations where you can.
