Some of us love spending days planning, shopping and cooking around the holidays and that’s great. For those who don’t, or may be away from home, we’ve gathered a slew of options. Want to go out for a traditional Thanksgiving meal? Gotcha covered. Considering going completely rogue and enjoying something besides turkey and dressing? Easy peasey. Thinking you’d rather order an entire meal (or just the dishes you don’t love to cook) but dine at home? We got you, too, boo. Reservations for those dining out are a must, and we hear they fill fast.
Places that offer Thanksgiving Dinner
Looking for a traditional Thanksgiving Meal? Here are some great choices:
Skirvin Hilton Hotel
Thanksgiving brunch will happen in the Grand Ballroom at the Skirvin from 11 a.m. – 1:45 p.m. Hotel chefs will pull out all the stops. There will be music, merriment and so much fantastic food! Seafood like salmon, oysters and snow crab legs plus Thanksgiving standards like turkey, cornbread stuffing, prime rib, green bean casserole, mashed and sweet potatoes, plus brunch items like bananas foster French toast. Adults are $64.95 per person; Children 3-11 are $29.95 per person and children under 3 are free.
McClintock’s in Stockyards City will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Their plan is to offer an abridged version of the regular menu plus Thanksgiving special in the form of ham or turkey dinners. Great option, beautiful location and you know the meal will be delish.
Tellers Wood Fired Italian Grill
Located in First National Center, Tellers will offer a Thanksgiving Feast from noon to 9:30 p.m. Adults pay $75 for a three-course meal, including a slight twist – they’re roasting chicken rather than turkey and the clever twists don’t stop there. Expect creative sides, magnificent desserts and excellent libations, all in a super-beautiful location.
Indulge in a Thanksgiving feast at the exquisite Grande Hall Event Venue at Castle Falls. The cost is $60 per adult and $30 per child aged 10 or under. The buffet-style dinner from 2-5 p.m. will feature all the Thanksgiving classics.
Going out but going rogue? Here are a couple of great options:
Grand House Asian Bistro
Grand House will be open, serving dim sum (the term means ‘touch the heart’), from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m. Grab your crew and your appetite and head for the Asian District – you’ll feast on delicacies like soup dumplings, steamed buns filles with pork, shrimp or veggies, rice, tofu rolls, chicken feet, meat and veggies in steamed lotus leaves and more. And there’s a full bar.
R&J Lounge and Supper Club
How about a Grasshopper and a relish tray, followed by trout amandine or a plate of beef stroganoff? That’s a rogue Thanksgiving meal if ever there was one! Your pals at R&J will be open from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m., ready to wine and dine you.
Thanksgiving Meals To-Go
Looking to pick up the whole darn meal, or just some of it? Try these:
The Jones Assembly
Jones Assembly is offering family meals (which serve 6-8 people) for $240. You can order online by Sunday, Nov. 19 and pick up on Wednesday, Nov. 23. The meal will include all the classics -- green bean casserole, stuffing, potatoes and the works. Add on a Dips & Spreads platter, deviled eggs, scratch biscuits or a holiday ham for a little extra.
This cult fave is old school – by which we mean no website and no online menu, so it’s going to take a phone call. But it’s worth it. The crew at ND Foods will hook you up with everything you need for a low-stress, unforgettable Thanksgiving feast.
Soup Soup has been an Oklahoma City institution for to-go and catering for more than 25 years and with good reason. When it comes to Thanksgiving, you can order the whole shebang, or just the desserts or sides. Everything is delicious! Totally your call. Speaking of calling – you’ve got to get your order in by Nov. 15, so heads up!
Pre-ordered Thanksgiving-specific pies sell out fast at Pie Junkie and with good reason. This little slice of heaven began in 2010 as a hobby for its owners. Soon, Pie Junkie pies were sought by local restaurants, and finally in 2013, the business found its permanent home in the Plaza District. Thanksgiving pre-orders went live on their website on Nov. 1, and they've already sold out! But not to worry! Pie Junkie will sell extra items through Nov. 18 and once more Nov 22. And you can also still walk in and catch a daily pie.
