We’re nearing Thanksgiving, and whether your tradition is dressing up and baking pies or watching football in your stretchy pants (yes please!), you’ll need a feast to make the day complete. If you’re visiting from out of town or even if you just don’t want to cook, Columbia has plenty of restaurants open on Thanksgiving to make your holiday memorable.

The Whole Shebang

Looking to get that traditional, fill-your-plate, turkey and sides fix? Plenty of places in Columbia will be open on Thanksgiving for you to dine in or carry out. You can even take the credit … we won’t tell!

To Keep Warm

Cooking a family feast can be exhausting. If you need a pick-me-up or an extra jolt to make it through the festivities, head to Kaldi’s for a maple pumpkin latte or a rosemary and brown sugar latte. It will keep you perked up until the turkey’s carved.

The Sweet Stuff

For our money, there’s no better Thanksgiving dessert than pie. Here’s where you can get yours if you’re like us and can’t figure out how to make a darn pie crust.
