Restaurants open on Thanksgiving in Metrowest?

Anyone know of any Metrowest-area restaurants that are open on Thanksgiving that serve more than Thanksgiving fare? There are four of us: one vegan, two turkey-haters who want their traditional Thanksgiving cheeseburger, and one traditionalist. We'd prefer not to have to overspend at a hotel/fancy-schmancy place with a fixed price buffet.

        Check open table. They usually have a listing of restaurants that are open on different holidays.

          Thank you! I did check and I think we may wind up at Legal Seafood. What a great site opentable is. I hadn't been there before.

            A few years ago, we went to the Legals in Braintree and it was horrible. The food was subpar and the servers clearly did not want to be there.

              That's a shame. We recently went to the one in Natick/Framingham and they were very good. We have several food allergies among us and they were fantastic with their accommodations.
