Note: These prices are not current. Please contact the restaurant for this year’s pricing.

It’s okay if you want to go out for Thanksgiving. No need to feel guilty. Many people are doing it evidenced by the increase in restaurants offering Thanksgiving meals over the past couple of years. This post is by far the most popular of the year. Here’s a list of restaurants open for Thanksgiving, most doing special prix fixe deals. I’ve also listed places that are offering “turkeys to go,” full meals including a cooked turkey or turkey breast ready to be warmed up. Your guests need never know…

I did a little bit of research and found many Bucks County restaurants (and nearby) open with Thanksgiving special menus. There are probably more. Let me know of any others by all means, and I’ll add them to the post. These are in alphabetical order with any interesting details I could find. If you have a favorite restaurant, give them a call and find out if they are doing Thanksgiving this year.

Following the listing are a few of the places who are offering Thanksgiving meals for take-out.

And, please…let them know you heard about it on Bucks County Taste. Thanks!

  1. Thank you for this VERY informative website concerning Thanksgiving Dinner. All restaurants seem very nice offering a wide selection of choices. However, many are also very costly for families who are just looking for the traditional Thanksgiving meal and don’t want or need all the extras. Do you know of any ‘more reasonable’ family-type restaurants that still offer a bar selection with alcoholic beverages, and casual dress is appropriate? We’re just looking for a nice dinner out without all the fuss. Thank you for any research or suggestions you may have.

  2. Hi Anna, Thanks for your comment. Take a look at the Stockton Inn who is offering a very reasonably priced dinner and only asking a donation which goes to the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen. They’ve been doing this for years, so it should be good. Have a great holiday, Lynne

  3. Hi JoAnne,
    I will be working on Thanksgiving 2012 (many restaurants don’t have it all together yet). But last year’s listing is a good place to start if you want to call around.
    Have a good holiday!
