The Best Thanksgiving Restaurants in Seattle

The Best Options to Dine Out on Turkey Day

Thanksgiving Restaurants
••• Stephanie

While many people enjoy cooking for themselves and others on Thanksgiving, others may not. Cooking can end up being a lot of work, and fortunately there's an alternative - there are plenty of Seattle restaurants that serve Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, many people view going out on Thanksgiving as a tradition.

Going out on Thanksgiving can mean a casual, affordable meal, or an extravagant, multi-course extravaganza by candlelight.

Want your turkey, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole? No problem! Want an entirely vegan meal? No problem! Seattle's restaurants are diverse enough to accommodate any dietary needs and tastes - and there are many restaurants open on Thanksgiving.

Unless you’re looking at very casual restaurants (Shari's always does Thanksgiving, for example), always make sure to call ahead for reservations for Thanksgiving dinner. Many restaurants book up days or weeks in advance. To make reservations, call restaurants directly or go through OpenTable.com.

Yet another alternative to cooking is to order a fully prepared meal from a grocery store. Several local chains offer this service, including Fred Meyer and Metropolitan Market. Fred Meyer is perfect for a more traditional, down-home meal, while Met Market is ideal if you're looking for something a little more upscale.
