Anyone know the best Thanksgiving to be had within the 40 dollar range, or so?

    Don't know if it's the best, but Middleton Place serves that day at $30, so you can eat, and enjoy the plantation as well. Food I've had there in the past has been good if not sensational. Other choices:

    No links to the menu at SNOB there, but that's probably where I would head as a second choice.

      Here's the SNOB link. It has a pdf menu-and the price is right.

        Doesn't seem right...The Swamp Fox has an entire buffet for $30.

          You said the $40 range, not the all-you-can-eat-for-$30 range.

            I see, the price is what I had asked about, but generally speaking I would rather spend less and have a great meal than spend more money and feel like I didn't get much. The Swamp Fox is saying they had been taking reservations for months and their buffet looks amazing. (Their shrimp and grits are wonderful, I can say) and I would rather be full with decent turkey and some cash than hungry after eating amazing turkey and having lost that money.
