The holidays can be stressful, especially if you are cooking for your loved ones. After spending hours slaving away over a hot stove, you still have to put away all the leftovers and manage through the dreaded clean-up routine. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Treat yourself and your family to an elegant dining experience by checking out one of these high-end restaurants that will keep its doors open on Thursday. So put away the baster and pick up the phone to make your reservation or order.

Truluck’s Seafood Steakhouse

Your favorite seafood restaurant is switching up their offering to create a Thanksgiving feast. Truluck’s Seafood Steakhouse’s three-course menu includes a delectable Butternut Squash Soup served with hard cider syrup to start. It’s followed by their Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast served with parmesan mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing, giblet gravy and cranberry apple compote. Also, every family can pick between their creamed spinach, steamed asparagus, creamed corn and macaroni and cheese for their two sides for the table. Don’t forget to leave room for dessert -- they will be serving up a Classic Pumpkin Pie topped with eggnog whipped cream. Tickets run at $38 per adult and $15 per child, which is a steal for all the premium food you will walk away stuffed with. Call to make your reservation today.
