If you’re looking for a gorgeous, classic and cozy Thanksgiving, look no further than the Tower Oaks Lodge. They are well known for the Thanksgiving feast they serve every year. For $28.99, The Lodge serves a moist and tender turkey dinner, complete with glazed sweet potatoes, crunchy green beans, thick and creamy gravy, sausage-sage stuffing and buttery mashed potatoes. The meal comes to a grand finale with the choice of pecan or pumpkin pie à la mode. If their classic Thanksgiving meal isn’t reason enough to visit, The Lodge’s decor is. Upon entry, the restaurant resembles a grand cottage rather than a restaurant. Hunting trophies are displayed on the walls, enormous fireplaces hold blazing orange flames, soft holiday lights illuminate the hallways and the entire cabin theme of the restaurant channels the feeling of home.
