Thanksgiving Dining Options 2023

Want the family and friends but not the dishes? Here are your choices – including community dinners planned around the Door.

Thanksgiving is upon us. That means it’s time to gather with family and friends, think about what you’re thankful for, and, of course, eat your body weight in stuffing and mashed potatoes.

If you’d like to do that without the cleanup, or if you’re looking for a community gathering, this list is for you. It contains the local restaurants and bakeries that are offering Thanksgiving dining or preparations, compiled as of Tuesday, Nov. 14, in addition to the Community Thanksgiving meals taking place around the Door.

All dine-in meals at the restaurant listings take place on Thanksgiving Day, as do carry-out meals unless otherwise specified.
