Just moved to area recently and are adamant about keeping it local! What are the best choices for Thanksgiving restaurants? Have seen Salty’s, but search has uncovered little else. Thank you!November 10, 2014 at 1:52 am #819245
Hey, Seaspades – I know some members will have good recommendations from years past. Just a note (p.s., welcome to West Seattle, and glad you found WSB) – some restaurants don’t decide whether they’re open/closed until fairly close to the date, so we don’t usually have a full official list until about a week ahead of time. The FIRST local restaurant to e-mail us to let us know they’ll be open (with volunteers, they were careful to note) is The Bridge in Morgan Junction. We’ll be keeping a running list on our calendar, for 11/27, until we launch the WSB Holiday Guide in the next few days, and then it’ll be linked there too.

Don’t worry about it Seaspades, you still have a couple of weeks. ;) If you feel like having something prepped for you that you can just enjoy at home, I’d recommend checking out the holiday meal packages over at the Metropolitan Market in Admiral. Always really high quality, it’s local and the folks over there are always great. :)
Welcome to WS!November 10, 2014 at 8:07 am #819248
but if you’d rather eat out, and not have any cooking “mess”, there’s this…and it’s free..everyone is welcome. Very nice meal…and you get to meet your neighbors :)November 10, 2014 at 2:54 pm #819249November 11, 2014 at 1:07 am #819250
FYI we tried to make a reservation at Salty’s on Alki, they’re booked and have started a wait list. We ended up making a reservation at the Golden Beetle in Ballard. Not local but should be tasty!November 11, 2014 at 3:24 am #819251
The meal Jan mentioned at The Hall at Fauntleroy (Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes Catering) is amazing – I’ve gone for several years and it’s beautifully done, delicious food, gracious hosts, and totally free.
I just saw that The Munchery (the new gourmet food delivery place) is also now offering a $70 Thanksgiving meal for 4 people, to be delivered on Wednesday night for reheating. This link would get you a $10 discount (and full disclosure, I’d get a referral credit too). https://munchery.com/invite/K3HGJBJE/November 11, 2014 at 3:32 am #819252
For many years my family went to buffets at the tribal casinos. Some are better than others but if your family likes crab it’s the way to go! I’ve been to Muckleshoot, Red Wind, Lucky Eagle and the one in Shelton who’s name is escaping me at the moment.November 12, 2014 at 6:28 am #819253
oh, never thought about the casinos; thanks for the hot tip (yes, love crab)November 12, 2014 at 5:03 pm #819254
Not West Seattle, but Bamboo Garden (a vegetarian/vegan/kosher Chinese restaurant on lower Queen Anne) is open on all holidays, and offers both the full Chinese menu as well as a faux-turkey Western style meal.November 12, 2014 at 9:58 pm #819255
Gatewood Ann, have you been to Golden Beetle before? I will be taking my mom there for a birthday brunch in December.November 13, 2014 at 5:51 am #819256
Yes I’ve eaten there before. Great menu & cocktails. You really can’t go wrong with any of Maria Hines restaurants!November 21, 2014 at 7:23 pm #819257
Any news of more WS restaurants that will be open for Thanksgiving? Thank you WSB for all that you do! Great work.November 22, 2014 at 6:12 am #819258
WSB team member Katie is still compiling the info – besides The Bridge, Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) will be open with a limited menu, as will The Westy, the new sports bar/restaurant on 35th SW that will officially open the day before. Her list-in-progress includes a few places open for breakfast and lunch, but I’m assuming you just mean dinner. Thanks to the person who says Salty’s is already booked – I’ll make sure she has that info.
**Just checked in with her while writing this reply – she says Admiral Pub and Mission also expect to be open. See the list so far in our calendar for November 27th – https://westseattleblog.com/events **
Besides The Hall at Fauntleroy’s free dinner mentioned earlier, noon-3 pm, Freedom Church also has a noon-3 pm community dinner (35th/Roxbury) and the Eagles are serving a free Thanksgiving meal open to all at their HQ near the Junction post office, 2-5 pm.
