Unlike many other towns in Alaska, Anchorage has a few hotspots open on the big day for a Thanksgiving meal. Check out the Millennial Hotel’s holiday feast featuring juicy turkey, local game meat and your favorite sides. Make sure there’s plenty of room for dessert, because you won’t want to miss out on creamy pumpkin and pecan pie.

Simon and Seafort’s is a staple Thanksgiving destination in town for locals where you’ll find a classic meal along with plenty of fresh seafood. Reservations are recommended here, but not required. The full menu is also available in addition to the holiday specials, and you’ll want to start the holiday with one of their fun seasonal cocktails.

Turkey Time

The Cattle Company, located on C Street and Tudor, also hosts an old-fashioned turkey dinner that tastes like home cooking. It’s also relatively inexpensive and a fantastic option for families. Mashed potatoes, stuffing, juicy turkey cuts, cranberry relish, dinner rolls and dessert options are all part of this down home celebration.

Of course, there’s also the local Golden Corral open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s the perfect way to start your day with a hearty breakfast, or for your full holiday spread if you’re looking for a low-key options. Of course, you can also pick up takeaway orders the night before from any of Anchorage’s fantastic restaurants.
