  1. How much are you looking to spend per person? Your best best bet is to wait until November when the local restaurants and the restaurants located in the hotels and casinos start posting their Thanksgiving menus.

    1. What you will find is that all the hotels offer Thanksgiving meals throughout their properties. Las Vegas is open 365/7/24. Standard offerings are Turkey, Ham, and Beef. Often Prime Rib.

      1. If you have a ballpark idea of the number in your party, how much you want to spend, and the kind of food you enjoy, this board will light up for you :) Vegas doesn't really slow down for the holiday's, so all of the restaurants will be open. There are even a few places that will give you a high end spin on the traditional Thanksgiving spread. They tend to fill up fast, so it's important to make reservations well in advance.

            You should have no trouble at all! I highly recommend Comme Ça at the Cosmopolitan. It is a fun place and the food is amazing! I think it was about $50 a person last year.

            I would check out the websites of the places that sound good to you in November - they will start to advertise their Thanksgiving menus at about that time. Here is a link to an article from 2010. It give you a ballpark for what to expect. The higher end buffets are also delicious, but it's still a crowded buffet on a holiday :/

        2. Not sure if it's what you are looking for, but I'll bet the Bellagio or Wynn buffets will have a nice spread for Thanksgiving.

          1. Here's an idea that's really off the wall. I've been going to the dinning hall at Nellis Air Force Base for Thanksgiving the past four years. The food is as good as any resort's buffet and it's dirt cheap. Less than $7.00/pp.

            You will need a car to get there and somebody in the car must have some form of military/veteran ID to get on the base.

            It's a silly suggestion but...
