Thanksgiving Dinner in Boise?

We will be spending Thanksgiving in Boise and are looking for a good place for a family of 6-8 to have dinner. Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. The Cottonwood Grill is an excellent choice. Here is their menu for Thanksgiving:

      Thanks. With a possibility of 8 of us (we are adopting all of my son's friends who don't have family nearby), we were hoping to find something a little less expensive. Although the Cottonwood Grille sounds wonderful.

    2. Golden Corral at 8460 West Emerald Street Boise, ID 83704 (208) 373-7101 is also going to be open on Thanksgiving.

        Surely we can do better than that for MomChef!

      2. What is your price range and food preference?

        Cottonwood was my first thought as well. Chandler's and Angel's come to mind but are in the same price range for the most part. Perhaps Red Feather or Fork, but the atmosphere is definitely busier. I also thought of Lock Stock and Barrel. I know they are chains but maybe Tucanos or Bonefish Grill would work for you guys

          Thanks, enbell! Was hoping for something in between Golden Corral and Cottonwood. Hoping to keep it more around $15 to $20 per person. Fork is closed that day; I already checked with them. I know that The Ram was open a couple of years ago. Not sure if they are this year or not. It's not my absolute favorite place in Boise, but the price range is right. So far, most of the places that are open are $30 per person. Our youngest is 13, so no more ordering off the Kids' Menu.

          Cottonwood has a limited menu on Thanksgiving and the least expensive entree is $26.

          Some of us will want a traditional Thanksgiving meal, although that's not an absolute requirement. Most of my family would prefer a burger. Would love it if Brick Oven Bistro was open that day. :) I know it's their last week in business.

            enbell... thank you again. Just found out through your links that Redfeather is closed, but Bittercreek is open AND they are taking reservations for Thanksgiving Day only. It's perfect. Thank you so much!

              Glad you found something that works for your crowd and your budget. If you remember, let us know how it went :)

              Thanks so much! I was searching for that, but could only find the article from 2009.
