Looking in the Saint Paul, Woodbury, Eagan or White Bear Lake area for about 16 on a budget.

    I was going to say Lake Elmo Inn, but I'm not sure what budget you have. Its not terribly expensive, but its not cheap either. With Thanksgiving only a couple weeks away, you may have an issue getting a reservation.

      Thanks! Yes, I agree Lake Elmo is great! I served there for about 10 years, but a lttile over my family members budget. I think we are going to try Obbs sports bar. Platted dinner with all the fixings $12.00. (made from scratch) Who needs a buffet for Thanksgiving anyway?

        Oh, now I totally want to go to Obb's. I'll bet it's really homey and fantastic.

          We went to Obb's once - what a funny blast from the past!

      I would also check out the St Paul Hotel and their M café budget. Its one we have been to for years and enjoy.

        I wonder how tinucci's buffet is ?


        the price at obbs will be hard to beat...of course you could eat all day long at tinucci's!

          Tinucci's buffet is not bad. I have not been there for thanksgiving, but I have had their turkey and dressing for lunch from time to time and its pretty good.

            Do they have a location other than Lake Street?
