Updated for 2017

Thanksgiving is a time for family, food, friends, … and dishes. So many dishes.  Maybe you’re over it this year. Or maybe this year, you want someone else to take care of the cooking and cleaning. Maybe your kitchen is out of commission. For whatever reason you choose, if you decide that you want to eat out for Thanksgiving, here are restaurants worth where you can have Thanksgiving dinner in Orlando.

It probably goes without saying, but make sure to call and make a reservation. Without one, you probably won’t be able to get a table and your family will definitely not be thankful for that.
