Boston for Thanksgiving Dinner | Best Restaurant Options

Boston for Thanksgiving Dinner:

For those staying in Boston over the Thanksgiving holiday on November 22, 2018, there are a number of excellent dining options in the Boston-Cambridge area to enjoy. Some restaurants are offering breakfast through dinner, others lunch and dinner, and some dinner only. Options range from prix fixe to buffet spreads. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong with any of these options in Boston for Thanksgiving dinner!

But be sure to book those reservations ASAP. Reservations are getting snapped up, and the closer we get to Thanksgiving, options will decrease. You don’t want to be left out in the (literal) cold, so head over to some of these suggested restaurants to browse their menus and book a table now. This list is a selection of the many options available in Boston for Thanksgiving dinner:

You might not think a seafood restaurant would be a good place to grab a Thanksgiving feast, but Legal’s is serving up traditional fare this Thanksgiving. Their plated dinner includes turkey breast with sausage stuffing, mashed potatoes, butternut squash, gravy, and cranberry sauce. We had our brunch wedding at this Legal’s and they served up fantastic breakfast options even though they don’t serve it regularly, so I’d trust their Thanksgiving dinner to be excellent as well!

Enjoy an elegant buffet at Boston’s best address. The hotel’s talented culinary team has created a lavish buffet with something to appeal to every palate from traditional favorites like roast turkey and stuffing to a carving station of sugar glazed ham.
