Sit Down Thanksgiving Dinners
There are a few restaurants where you can still pull up a seat on Thanksgiving day.
Three Rivers Casino in Florence
Move from the card tables to the Thanksgiving table at Three Rivers Casino. At their Blue Bills sports bar enjoy the Autumn Harvest Salad spiced up with pumpkin seeds and sweet dried cranberries throughout November. And on Thanksgiving order a roasted and stuffed pork loin with mashed potatoes and gravy.
This intimate inn and restaurant is located near the University of Oregon, making the Excelsior a prime destination for the visiting family of faculty and students. The establishment's own farm makes this "slow food" Italian restaurant an authentic charmer. Reservations for staying and dining in here quickly sell out.
