Thanksgiving Dinner SW Michigan/NE Indiana?

Anyone know of a place that will be open on Thanksgiving in the New Buffalo/Michigan City area? Doesn't have to be the traditional turkey and stuffing, but a nicer restaurant would be nice...I like pubs and pizzerias, but my parents would like to meet halfway for a good dinner Thanksgiving if there's anything open..

  1. You might want to consider the buffet at the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo.Skip's in New Buffalo may well be open.The Strongbow Inn in Valparaiso is known for their Thanksgiving dinners.Possibly Heston Bar or their banquet hall the Heston Hills also may be a consideration.They are in the Laporte area.

      I thought of Four Winds of Blue Chip....figured I had a last resort with one of them.

      Thank for the suggestions, I'll look into them!

    2. Conside visiting Tabor Hills winery in Buchanan. Not sure if they serve Thanksgiving Dinner - you might have to check with the restaurant ( - but it's a beautiful place with wonderful food. A worthwhile visit to the country!

      1. Skips in New Buffalo is open with a full Thanksgiving Buffet. Reservations are required. 269-469-3341. . . . .Galveston in MIchigan City is having a Thanksgiving Buffet. Reservations can be made by calling (219) 879-5555. Both very nice places. Prices in the area of $30 per adult. Skips half price 6-12, free 5 and under. Numerous other places open as well.
