White tablecloths, cloth napkins, candles (battery operated so they were safe) beautiful view and delicious view! Guess where we are going this year! Lol!
sounds pricey.

AT $58 for adults, and $25 for children, I think the Chateau on the Lake has the most expensive Thanksgiving Day Brunch/Lunch.....BUT! I think they also have the biggest selection of wonderful, gourmet food, that accompanies that "pricey" tab..add to that the ambiance inside their Great Room banquet hall with ice sculptures, cut crystal glasses, china plates, nice silverware, complimentary Mimosa's, impeccable polite and groomed servers, plus holiday/classical live piano music...yea, imo, it's one of life's "special" events that one should experience at least once...however..I have always been fortunate enough to just have a date, or at most, 2 other people with me...I would not wish to pick up the check for a really LARGE family gathering! Their entire menu (all you can eat buffet style) follows:

Salads:

Field Green Salad with Shredded Carrots, Cucumbers, Tomato & Assorted Dressings
Baby Spinach Salad with Mushrooms, Chopped Egg, Smoked Bacon & Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

We have stayed at the hotel years ago and it wasn't bad. Don't know about now but the food has always been wonderful! I can't remember what all we had last year but it was a large spread and I believe we had Turkey, Ham and Prime Rib. I think the price is reasonable. I was wondering if anything is open in Branson towards evening to grab a quick bite? We have 11 am reservations so a light meal might be in order later. That's the bad part about not cooking. No leftovers! Lol!

Just checked. They are closing on Thanksgiving, so that won't help you.

You might check with Matt at Longhorn next to the, (now razed), Baldknobbers Theater. I know they are going to be open on Thanksgiving but I don't know how late. Stuffed baked potato soup and a salad would make a nice light meal.

I can't remember the who and what but do know we've stopped in at some of the fast food places in the past, they may not stay open as late though as they normally would. a few places will close up early on Wednesday night as well.

We got to where we would take something from home.. crackers... canned stuff, just something we could piece on because we were usually so full didn't care to look for anything.

For a light supper you might try the Price Chopper Supermarket on 76.
It is open until 7:00pm on Thanksgiving Day. They have a nice salad bar and deli.

According to the list on the first page of the thread:

Denny's open 24 hours, Cracker Barrel open until 10, Shorty Small's until 11:30, Shoney's open until 11 pm, McFarlain's and Montana Mike's until 9:30.
IHOP should be open.

Thinking $25 hot dogs is just a way to keep the Lords and Ladies at the feast from being bothered by those troublesome offspring. Just leave them with the nanny while we enjoy a holiday feast and celebration.

Thumbs up Grand View Thanksgiving

Just back from Thanksgiving buffet at Grand View. It was a good experience. The buffet was well laid out and plenty of choices.

Salad table was somewhat limited but the salads were fresh and good.

The entree hot table had the green bean & bacon casserole, candied sweet potatoes, cornbread dressing, (could have used a bit more sage), smashed potatoes with skins as veggies/sides.

The meat choices were pre-carved turkey, (flavorful turkey gravy, NOT from a mix), fried chicken, honey glazed ham and carved-to-order rib-eye loin. There were fresh yeasty rolls and on-site made cranberry relish.

The dessert table had four different pies and a marble cake.

We had 11:00am reservations. No wait, immediate seating and all items were fresh, (hot foods hot and cold foods cold). Plenty of serving/bus help so beverages were refilled promptly.

Room was clean, white table cloths and linen napkins; good, heavy tableware.
Price was $26.96 per adult and, based on other places we have eaten in Branson, well worth the price.

Our server told us that the hotel had been sold in July and will be completely remodeled in the spring, (all rooms, new bar, refurbished dining rooms, all new furniture), but that the food service staff has all been retained, (including the cooks, so the food quality should remain).

Based on our experience today, we will be trying them for a regular lunch and dinner and I will review at that time.

We ate there too at 11. It was good but not as good as last year. We had wondered if the Chef had changed. Still a good deal though. No line is the icing on the cake!
