Looking for a Special Thanksgiving Buffet in Charleston

We will be staying in Mt P for the holiday with our 7 yr old son, anyone know of a place that would have an interesting atmosphere for our feast?

  1. Lots of places will be open

    The only buffet I know about is at the Francis Marion hotel. I haven't been (I go to my mama's house) but people gave it good reviews last year and the chef is very talented.

      Thank you , we were kind of excited about visiting Middleton Place , only to find their reservations are full that day, still looks like a place to visit another time. Have you tried 17 North Roadside in Mt Pleasant ?( it may be kid friendly with our 7 yr old)

      17 North
      3563 N Hwy 17, Mt Pleasant, SC 29464

    2. Yes. I love 17 North. It's very kid-friendly and relaxed. The food is great and they have outdoor seating with heaters.

      Another of my favorites is Atlanticville on Sullivans. I don't know if they are open for Thanksgiving. I just tried to call and got the machine. You might want to check it out.

        I just browsed Atlanticvilles menu, yummm! Even if we don't do Thanksgiving there, we are definitely putting them on our 'To Do' list!

          Wow, what a great Thanksgiving experience! I say that because it was so much more than just a meal,. Dining out on the patio, firepit blazing, football on in the tiki bar, children having a blast in the garden & making S'mores, Mom & Dad relaxing with a glass of wine......oh and spot on Buffet with all wonderful traditional fixings, I definitely was Thankful .

        2. Get the oyster appetizer. It's my favorite.

          1. Grill 225 has a mammoth buffet...after tax and tip it would be $100 per adult, kids I think it's $46

              Wow, in my old restaurant I charged $12.95 for our Thanksgiving Day buffet. Granted it isn't Grill 225, but it was traditional and quite tasty. Gouging should not be acceptable at any it after a hurricane or on a holiday.

              And $46 for children? You HAVE to be kidding.

              Just my opinion. Don't shoot me.

                Actually after tax and tip, it would about $42 for kids aged 7-12 and $22 for kids aged 3-6. So, apparently, if you have a kid over age 12 it would be $100! It is crazy, but, price aside, the menu sure looks awesome and it is a nice dining room:
