Celebrating Thanksgiving in the High Country: Restaurants Serving Thanksgiving Meals


By High Country Host

Having Thanksgiving Dinner in the NC High Country of Boone, Blowing Rock, West Jefferson NC is a great family tradition. Your family can choose and cut a Christmas tree at a local farm, take a hay ride, view a holiday light display and still have your Thanksgiving dinner! You have a variety of options for Thanksgiving dinner.  If you would like to dine out, choose from buffet style to a set menu, but all include a cozy atmosphere in the mountains and friendly staff. If you would prefer to have dinner in your cabin rental, there are a few places that can provide you with a freshly cooked turkey and sides.  See our suggestions below.
