If you'll be here in the mountains on Thanksgiving Day, you may be asking, "Where can I have a Thanksgiving meal in Asheville?"

We work with the Asheville Independent Restaurant Association (AIR) and others to help answer that question for you with this list of local eateries that will be open on Thanksgiving Day.

As with any holiday, we highly recommend calling the restaurant before finalizing your plans to check availability, make a reservation (if possible) and review what items will be on the menu. Click on the name of restaurant for contact information.

We expect to continue receiving more and more restaurant information as we near Thanksgiving Day. Please check frequently back for updates.
