Your Thanksgiving Out: 30-plus Family-friendly Restaurants for Thanksgiving Dinner

A roundup of restaurants offering Thanksgiving meals in Seattle, Bellevue, North Sound, South Sound and surrounding areas.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful day for those who love baking, cooking, braising and chopping. But, what if your kitchen is roughly the size of a hatbox? Or, if like myself, your culinary achievements include things like toast and spaghetti? Or, what if you simply don't want the headache of cooking and washing a mountain of dishes? Seattle and surrounding areas have a great selection for a Thanksgiving meal that will only require you to show up and tip your hard-working servers. Check out some of the options we found with help from our readers. The quotes are from readers on our Facebook page.
