Turkey Dinner?

Okay, my family doesn't eat or cook turkey at home. Do any restaurants serve traditional turkey dinners as a regular menu or seasonal option?

Thanks :)

    Allen's on the Danforth is doing their annual American Thanksgiving dinner. Can't believe I didn't remember it, as I ordered this a few years ago. A bit spendy but delicious.

      Hemingways in Yorkville also does a solid American Thanksgiving dinner that includes dessert for $17. It runs from Nov 24th to 26th.

      All I can think of off hand is Watts in Eglinton Square; I don't know if it's on their every-day menu or a daily special, but I've had it and it was good. It's a pretty basic family-style restaurant, but the food's always been good when I've been there.

        A friend told me he had a great T-giving turkey dinner at a restaurant at Broadview and Danforth. Not sure if it is a regular menu item. North of Danforth, east side of the street just past the Broadview subway station.

          Not sure about this one, but I'm the type who likes turkey dinner several times a year, and I hit up "Roasty Jack's" in the basement foodcourt near Holt's on Bloor. The turkey is really good, you get a couple of choices of sides, and yeah, you're outta there for under $10!

            +1 for Roasty Jacks, fresh every day., but expect plastic cutlery and styrofoam plates.

            -1 for Tulip, the turkey meat was frozen then barely warmed up.

              Do they have stuffing and gravy? I'm always getting cravings for turkey dinner. So easy to find in the States; just about every diner offers it on the menu.

                Yes stuffing and gravy, but both a little on the blander side. Also boiled carrots, corn, beans etc.

                You can also get the meat on a Caesar salad instead.

                The only thing is that I heard that whole food court is going away, and they will be missed.

                  Thanks everyone - yeah I am looking for the tradtional meal with gravy and stuffing and sides !

                  Would be nice if it was a sit down place instead of a fast food joint. :)

                  Maybe close to xmas, some of the restos will be offering Turkey ?
