Thanksgiving asks us to spend time with our families and show thanks and gratitude for the things we have – but who said that we couldn’t go out to eat with our family instead of cooking at home? Luckily, Indianapolis has several restaurants open on Thanksgiving so you and your family can enjoy a great meal without bothering with the dishes. Websites like OpenTable allow you to browse restaurants that will be open and make an online reservation for your Thanksgiving feast.
Here are just a few highlights of Thanksgiving dining options available in Indianapolis this year:
