A roundup of Thanksgiving specials throughout the country

Napa Valley Grille

Los Angeles' Napa Valley Grille will be serving squash bisque, roast turkey with all the fixings, butterscotch bread pudding, chicken with roasted apple mashed potatoes, and mini pumpkin pie.

Thanksgiving is a holiday best spent with friends and family, enjoying food around a festive table. Whether that table is inside a house or inside a restaurant? That’s up to you. If you’re inside a restaurant, you don’t have to worry about doing dishes, serving food, or even standing up until it’s time to leave, so that’s one advantage right there. And while it might sound sad to think about Thanksgiving at a restaurant — a few slices of dry turkey, lumpy gravy, boxed mashed potatoes and canned cranberry sauce might come to mind — there are actually a lot of restaurants that go above and beyond the call of duty to put together a world-class Thanksgiving experience for their customers.

We’ve scoured the country and assembled a list of restaurants, both chains and non-chains, that are serving Thanksgiving dinner this year. Check back often, as we’ll be updating it as more menus roll in.

The chain will be offering a buffet-style Thanksgiving dinner. Each location’s offerings will be slightly different, but will include turkey, cranberry sauce, yams, and green beans.
