There have been so many questions at the group asking who is open for Thanksgiving in Tallahassee and surrounding areas. I reached out to several restaurant owners so I can start compiling a directory here at this post. Bookmark this page and share with friends that may need a little help serving up Thanksgiving dinner.

Usually I promote locals only; however since most will be spending the day with friends and family, in the interest of providing enough options, I’m breaking this up into sections – Locals, local restaurants taking Thanksgiving pre-orders for meals, sides, and desserts, chains, and markets offering prepared Thanksgiving meals.

Please contact me for additions to this list. Also, make sure you confirm a restaurant’s hours before visiting Thanksgiving day.

Wherever you go, I’m sure our Gobble ’til You Wobble tee, for a great cause, will be a fun conversation at the dinner table.
