Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving in Asheville & Pre-order Meals


Asheville welcomes you for the Thanksgiving holiday!

It's an exciting time to be in town as many of Asheville's favorite holiday traditions have begun. See our guide to five festive ways you can experience the holidays in Asheville.

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

We work with the Asheville Independent Restaurant Association (AIR) and others to help answer that question for you. View our list below of local restaurants that will be open on Thanksgiving Day or that offer takeout meals that can be pre-ordered before Thanksgiving. 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.
