You will find many open restaurants along the beaches of Northwest Florida and coastal Alabama during the holidays, especially on Thanksgiving. Some of these restaurants even serve for donations only and donate the proceeds, such as Harbor Docks in Destin, Florida which benefits Habitat for Humanity. No matter where you choose to dine, you will find the food is delicious and traditional, although we do like to throw in a little seafood here and there. It wouldn’t be a vacation or holiday to the Gulf Coast without a fresh catch and a little shrimp, right?
If you elect to visit a Gulf Coast restaurant open on Thanksgiving, we highly recommend you make reservations. Many serve set menus or buffets so knowing who is coming to dinner because esstenial! Make your condo reservations, and your dinner reservations, for turkey day now!
