Cooking Thanksgiving dinner doesn’t start on November 28.
There are trips to the grocery store, decorating your holiday table and don’t forget the turkey has to thaw. That’s a lot of work! Especially if you are vacationing on the Island.
You and your family might want to just relax or enjoy fun quality time this holiday. Why not have somebody do all the work for you. You may be asking yourself, Are any restaurants open on Thanksgiving? The answer is yes. Since Hilton Head is a tourist town, many of its restaurants make sure that out-of-towners have dining options. This is true even (or especially) on Thanksgiving.
Here’s a list of some of or favorites restaurants that invite you to gobble-gobble up a holiday meal:
