Urgent - Ft Lewis Wa - Thanksgiving for a soldier
First I apologize as I do not have time to search the boards. I just found out that my son who is stationed at Ft lewis had his Thanksgiving plans fall apart. I have offered to pay for his meal and a few friends at a restaurant that will take plastic over the phone. I want him to have the best possible, although price is somewhat of a consideration. Suggestions please!!!!!!!!
I think you'd be surprised how little time "Searching the Boards" actually takes. A search ot the PNW board for "Ft. Lewis" takes far less time than posting your message did.
Might I suggest you give that a shot and come back with specific questions, if you have any.
BTW, both Tacoma & Olympia are within easy driving distance of Ft. Lewis.
Anyway, I'm sure your generous offer will be much appreciated by your son and his friends.
I'm not positive that they'll be open, but this is a good place to start. Water view and decent food tho not particularly gourmet. I tried to see if they had any thanksgiving meals listed but didn't see reference on line.

As a mom, I can sympathize with your plight. Unfortunately, I don't know many reasonably priced restaurants near Ft. Lewis that will be open on Thanksgiving. If your son or his friends have a car and can drive about 20 minutes south to Olympia, I checked the Falls Terrace restaurant and they are open.
Amongst other offerings (see website for complete menu) they are serving a traditional roast turkey dinner for $16.99 per person for soup or salad, rolls, veggies, turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie or bread pudding for dessert. The Falls Terrace is not the fanciest place around - but it does have a beautiful view of the Deschutes Falls and they serve a decent meal, especially the more traditional fare.
Their phone (for reservations) is 360-943-7830 and the website is: www.fallsterrace.com
Best of luck to your son and his friends - you are a very sweet Mama!
If all else fails, the chow halls will be open on base for those single soldiers who are there over the weekend.
