Eating Out for Thanksgiving Dinner

Let Someone Else Do the Dishes


If you're like me, the thought of cooking up a 7 course gourmet Thanksgiving meal scares me to death and should only be left to Martha Stewart. So why not make a reservation at one of these fine Kansas City establishments and leave the cooking to someone else?? Plenty of places in Kansas City offer buffets, traditional sit-down dinners or abbreviated menus with a casual approach on Thanksgiving. Be thankful that someone ELSE has to do the dishes and revel in a Tryptophan induced coma.

Please note: All prices are per-person. Reservations strongly recommended. Prices, times, etc. are subject to change without notice. Please call ahead.
