The upscale experience. Dress to the nines if you’re so inclined. Thanksgiving at these venues will be a memorable occasion.

The casual experience. Prefer a more low-key setting? The Village Inn will be dishing up traditional favorites. Save room for dessert, the restaurant is famous for its huge selection of mouth-watering pies.

The Southern experience. For turkey with a twist, Glenwood Springs offers two options. The Lost Cajun will be serving deliciously moist deep-fried turkeys with Southern sides like baked beans. Smoke Modern Barbeque, while not open on Thanksgiving, is accepting take-out orders for smoked turkeys, prime rib and sides available for pickup on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

The buffet experience. This option is perfect for picky eaters and those who save room for second helpings. Vic’s Route 6 Grillhouse is planning a feast that includes favorites from turkey and ham to sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.

Open on Thanksgiving. If a tryptophan overload isn’t your thing, both the Riviera Supper Club and Taipei Tokyo will be open and welcome guests to order from the regular menu.
