    Hi Gang, we're going to be in Vegas over Thanksgiving this year and have been thinking of where to have our turkey (last yr we had dinner in Chicago - signature room atop the John Hancock). We'd like to kinda make this the highlight of our trip - so when do the nicer restaurants produce their online Thanksgiving menus (if at all)?
    Also I'm open to recommendations :nworthy:

    The wife and I will also be there on Thanksgiving and have had the same question.

    We'd probably be happy "settling" for one of the nicer buffets, but wonder if a reasonably priced "sit down" turkey dinner might be available somewhere.

    Due to venues for Thanksgiving already booking up in Las Vegas I decided not to wait for menus to come out and just do it. I've got four seats in Oscar's at The Plaza for Thanksgiving dinner.

    Seriously, folks - wait much longer to get reservations for a sit-down meal at a nice restaurant in Las Vegas for Thanksgiving dinner and it's not going to happen.

    I dined at Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris casino a couple of years ago for Thanksgiving dinner. Their dinner menu included an appetizer, salad, turkey with all the usual trimmings and a dessert. We ate in the glassed in area, as it was way too cold to sit out on the patio. It was a fixed price menu, but you had options for the appetizer, salad and dessert. The food was very good and our waitress was excellent. I would strongly advise not to think about going to a buffet on Thanksgiving unless you get a real kick out of waiting in line for 2 or 3 hours. The line at the Rio was unreal all day long. I talked to a waiter at the M resort and he said the wait is usually up to 3 hours on Thanksgiving. Make you dinner reservation ASAP.

    Do you recall what you paid for the fixed price dinner?

    I e-mailed M Buffet to ask about this months ago. No reply. We opted for Tucanos in ABQ.

    I can't wait to see the spread.

    Sorry I can't remember the exact price, but it was reasonable considering the restaurant and the quality of the food. Tender Steak & Seafood at the Luxor is having a 3 course Thanksgiving dinner for $49 and the Silverton is having some Thanksgiving specials at their restaurants. Check out the newsletter at accessvegas.com for details.

    Why fight the crowds just so you can eat a meal they tell you to eat when they tell you to eat it?

    I go the day before or the day after and have my run of the place.

    After all, its the family with me that is important. The meal is secondary.

    Thanks for Prime!

    Thanks for finding the Prime menu. The giggly girl on the phone at the Bellagio couldn't seem to tell me if that existed or not.

    YAY turkey on thanksgiving!

    Does anyone know from experience whether menus like these are usually available the entire weekend, or only on Thanksgiving proper?

    In past years, my experience was the special menu items were only on Thanksgiving day.

    Some of the restaurant website menus for this year (which I just posted above) state "Menu only available Thanksgiving Day".

    I appreciate the menu links posted by KellyLovesVegas, but all of these restaurants are way above our price range.

    Does anyone have links or suggestions for Thanksgiving dinners that would be $50 or under per person?

    Thanks!

    John (OK, call me El Cheapo)

    El Chea....I mean VermonterJohn- :evillaugh

    Zeffarinos is doing a buffet for 39.95 per person at the Venetian.
    The Palm at CP is doing a turkey dinner for 45.
    A lot of places at New York New York list that they will be having thanksgiving day specials, but don't have the prices.
    Comme Ca at Cosmo is doing a family style dining dinner for 47/each, bottomless cocktails for 28 more.


    Good luck! Getting a reservation is getting tougher by the day. If OpenTable doesn't work, call. Some places limit the number of "online reservations" and you can still get a table.

    I totally agree with you! We are going to play it by ear and just have fun. The world should not revolve around eating anyway.
