Hello -- I am looking for suggestions or reccommendations regarding where out-of-staters might find a nice traditional family Thanksgiving dinner... We will be enjoying this holiday away from our home, enabling us to be with our son who is graduating the day before Thanksgiving from Basic training at Ft. Knox... We will also have the company of his battle buddy; as he will not have any family there to celebrate his achievement or share the holiday with him, so we have adopted him, so to speak, to be apart of our family while we are there..

Both of these young men will immediately leave the day after Thanksgiving to go to their respective posts for additional training. I would love their last day there to be memorable, delicious, and filling... LOL

We are driving up from Oklahoma and have never visited the state before so we are completely dependant on those that already live there to guide us in the right direction.. We will be staying in Elizabethtown but could travel to Louisville or to Ratcliff.

Much appreciation in advance for your help.

Thanks ~
MnS

Most good restaurants are in Elizabethtown. Otherwise, plan on going to Louisville. O'Charleys for sure is open on Thanksgiving. Likewise, Cracker Barrel at the 94 exit off I-65. Possibly Fergie's and Raffertys will also be open. These are quality restaurants, all located on the north side of Elizabethtown (except for CB).

Some restaurants do close for Thanksgiving, so until we get closer to the holiday, hard to say for sure who will be open. Louisville, of course, will give you many more options, but more hassle in driving there.

We appreciate these young men's service for sure!

If it was me I'd check with VFW Post North Hardin County (270) 877-2138 located off Hill Street Radcliff/Vine Grove practically spittin distance to Ft Knox. Betcha they set one of the finest Thanksgiving Dinner tables for military families in the area. Plus it's the kinda place where other boot-camp pals of yer son's are likely to be heading with family.
