Where to Dine for Thanksgiving in Asheville

Known for its easy access to mountain getaways and local craft beers, Asheville's often overlooked prevalence of top notch restaurants deserves praise. Sure, Thanksgiving dinner at home carries on tradition, but with so many great places to stuff your face and not have to worry about cleanup, you'd be doing yourself and your family a disservice not to dine out on Thanksgiving at least once. Asheville vacation rentals for Thanksgiving give you the feeling you never left home.

  • 1. Red Stag Grill

    Located in the Grand Bohemian Hotel, this visually stimulating gem prides itself on locally sourced, hearty fare in a modern lodge setting. Bring plenty of room in your belly. Also, don't miss their cocktail menu.

  • 2. The Blackbird

    Your mouth will water as soon as you peruse the menu. Order a 3-course meal with all the fixings. For example, sage-brined heritage turkey and prime rib with au jus and horseradish cream graced the menu last year. With a motto like “Modern Southern with a 'nod' to tradition,” how could they possibly disappoint?

  • 3. Roux

    For those of us who don't stop with one plate on Thanksgiving, a well-executed buffet is the way to go. Roux offers just that. Just imagine: multiple helpings of Carolina Turkey, baked ham, homemade pumpkin pie, and more!

  • 4. Pack's Tavern

    Another glorious buffet! They serve all the typical Turkey Day trimmings with loads of craft beer to boot — a playground for beer connoisseurs as well as folks who like to fill up till they bust.
