If you want to enjoy a stress-free holiday, you can opt to do something different…

Enjoy a beautiful meal—out in a restaurant!

As much as it may warm the heart to cook one’s own Thanksgiving feast, there’s also a certain feeling of liberty in enjoying a meal without spending hours in front of a hot oven.

And in the spirit of this freedom, we will express our gratitude for these Galveston establishments that are open on Thanksgiving Day:

Hotel Galvez

Enjoy a supreme Thanksgiving Brunch that you’ll likely never forget at Hotel Galvez. You’ll enjoy all of the traditional Thanksgiving fixings, in addition to special additions cooked up by the executive chef.

The dining area includes soaring ceilings and natural light, so you’ll savor the sights of abundance in a beautifully spacious environment. Enjoy the views from the oversized windows; you’ll truly savor this “staycation.”

Reservations are essential. Call 409.765.7721 to reserve your table.

San Luis Resort

The executive culinary team at The San Luis Resort guarantees a sumptuous feast between 11:00 a.m & 2:00 p.m.

You can choose from savory selections such as the Apple Cinnamon Waldorf Salad, which features candied pecans, golden raisins, pineapples, and Chantilly cream. Or you can opt to participate in a breakfast-centered experience, and enjoy cinnamon-raisin French toast, or an omelet made-to-order.

Of course, the traditional roast turkey is available, along with assorted pies, and much more.
