Christmas dinner buffet

Hi All

We will be going out for dinner on the 25th. Am considering Thomsons, Carriage House and Blackfoot Inn.

Thomsons is considerably more expensive $70ish per person but I don't mind paying more if it is worth it.
Any other recommendations are more than welcome!

  1. I was hoping to hear some input on this as we are considering having a group of 11 go out for Christmas dinner also.

    We were discussing the Palliser but I think it is more expensive than Thompsons.

      I ended up booking at Thomsons - we are looking forward to it.

      The Gut - you may want to make some calls to see what space looks like. I tried the Palliser a few weeks ago and they were already fully booked.
      I made reservations at Thomsons and the only seating available for a table of 2 was 3:00 or 7:00pm. They do have tables available for larger parties at other times.

      Good luck!

        After some discussion it's going to be at our house this year.

    2. I certainly hope for your sake you choose anywhere but the Blackfoot Inn. We went there and it was absolutely terrible. Overcrowded and no organization what-so-ever, By the time you got your turkey all the other hot food on your plate was cold. Put into the Heritage room and it was so over-crowded you could not even move. We left most of our dinner as it was not fit to be eaten. Pay more - go somewhere good.
