My parents are coming to visit me for thanksgiving . They want me to take them somewhere where they can get a nice turkey dinner. Anyone have some suggestions as to which restaurants I can take them to? (I thought maybe Bob Evans but wasnt sure if they had thanksgiving meals or not)

thanks

First determine your price level and whether you want a plate service, cafeteria or buffet. There are wide choices in each category. Then call your favorite restaurants that meet that criteria to see what they are offering at the day and time you want.

Huge number of places deal with Thanksgiving dinners. We even went to a Thanksgiving buffet at India Palace on year and had turkey curry.

Do not wait until the last minute because they fill up fast. Also, if you choose one of the buffet non reservation places like Grays, dont be late or want to eat later. They fill up the fastest.

Thank you . I am not sure which they will want. Probably a buffet is best. Do you have any recommendations for a buffet (besides Grays) ? Regardless of which of the three I choose, will I have to call ahead and make reservations even if its normally a non reservation restaurant?

I have not gone to a Thanksgiving buffet in years. But, yes you do have to make a reservation at almost all places, whether buffet or plated, to be assured a seat and hopefully avoid a long wait. You might call Jonathan Byrd's in Greenwood (but I prefer Grays).

Bob Evans and Cracker Barrel should all be open. But there are also places like Hollyhock Hill that many families like and have a festive atmosphere all the way up to the Conrad which one year was $60 per person.

I saw a sign in Claggagh that they were doing a Holiday meal, not sure if it was buffet or what.

MCL 86th and Allisonville.

I KNOW that one will give you a decent thanksgiving meal.
