Thanksgiving Dinner in Calgary?

Does anyone know a restaurant that is serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner? I really don't want to go to a buffet. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  1. I would think your best bet is to try a hotel like the Palliser or the Delta Bow Valley.

    1. I'm looking for the same thing as my relatives backed out today and I don't feel like doing the full dinner for just me and my parents.
      Ed's by the Dome has a turkey dinner, with mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, veggies and cranberry sauce, for $16/person.
      I've been looking for info for dinner at the Rimrock Room (Palliser) but am not finding anything except a # for reservations; does anyone have any further info?

      1. The Raw Bar at Hotel Arts is doing a turkey dinner with all the fixin's for $20 on both Sunday and Monday, starting at 5pm. They are also whipping up some of the drinks they are known for, like Baked Apple Pie martini! 403-206-9565 for reservations. I'll be there!

          We went for the T.G. dinner last night. It was very good. But I guess I expect no less from the Hotel Arts. There were 2 slices of each of brown/white meat, served with mash potatoes, a few slices of sweet potato, seasonal veggies (asparagus and parsnip) and gravy. I couldn't even eat my whole plate. We did start with the potato/leek soup ($7). I also tried the baked apple pie martini. It certainly tasted exactly like apple pie! but very sweet for a drink. I should have had it for a dessert drink instead of pre-dinner.

          By 7pm the bar was full. There were quite a few families, with adult children.

          For $20 I thought it was a very decent meal. They are doing it again tonight any time after 5pm.

        2. You should check out the Cuisine Concepts group (Diner Deluxe, Big Fish etc.) They often have prix fixe menu for Thanksgiving, and will most likely require reservations. Probably the best place for non-home cooked thanksgiving dinner in the city.

          1. It isn't going out/ at a restaurnt but I've heard that Sunterra has really good turkey dinner "takeout"/finish at home stuff. A friends family did it last Christmas and loved it.

              Along the same line I believe Fresh Kitchen does the same thing. Although I have not tried their Turkey Dinner specifically their food is usually very good.
