Choices for dining out on Thanksgiving | Events
Many travel out of town for Thanksgiving, and many have family come in from out of town. Some cook for days to prepare for a big feast with a large family.
However, some also choose to eat at a restaurant - if there is one open - on Thanksgiving instead. There are several restaurants in Huntsville open on Thanksgiving, and some are even serving a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Here is a list of those who will be open to serve you and your loved ones.
