Where To Dine During Thanksgiving Day

If you’re looking to try something a little different this Thanksgiving, consider dining out. Step away from the traditional Thanksgiving meal — and the kitchen — and go out! It’s a nice change of pace, very low-stress and you will have more time to savor with your friends and family. For those who are unable to make it to a loved one’s home, enjoying a meal at a restaurant with holiday ambiance is a great option. Many of our members across the state will be open on Thanksgiving Day serving a special menu:


Bacon and Butter

“The best breakfast place in Sacramento! To be honest everything on their menu is amazing! Coffee is good, service is friendly and efficient, and I always leave stuffed! Satisfying comfort food served by cool staff is always a treat.”

Lazy dog Restaurant & Bar

“If you are looking for a restaurant you can bring your furry friends to, look no further. This is my favorite go-to spot for food and beer. I don’t come back to this restaurant just because of the food, I love the warm and inviting ambience, but most of all, the service! I highly recommend visiting Lazy Dog and enjoy some time on the patio with your pup.”

Los Angeles


“Bestia is a meat lover’s heaven, because they do meat dishes so well. It’s not the kind of place where you grab a quick bite to eat. It’s the kind of place to sit, socialize and savor. Portions are decent. Food is impeccable. Fantastic ambience to relax with some friends and have a few drinks and food to share.”

“The view up-top is amazing! The service was excellent; super friendly and fast. The live band added great ambiance. Even though it is a roof top bar, it doesn’t get too windy and has spectacular views from all around. The food here is good, but what really gives this place something special is the service.”

OB Noodle House

“Can’t beat the super cool ambiance. The food is very good. Big portions so you can share and try multiple things. The music is hip and loud, so if you are hoping for a quiet romantic vibe, this is not the place, but if you are out to have a great time, a few drinks, awesome food, then I would say you must try OB Noodle House.”
