When most people think of Thanksgiving, they think of sharing a delicious home cooked meal, at home, with family and friends. Hosting a Thanksgiving dinner is nice of course, but have you ever tried having Thanksgiving out at a restaurant?

I've done it a few times, and I have to say, it was pretty great. Of course you can expect to pay quite a bit more than you normally would pay for a meal out, but what you're getting for it is also pretty great, when you think about it.

First of all, say goodbye to the stress of preparing the meal, and having anxiety about whether or not it will come out good.

Secondly, when you have Thanksgiving at a restaurant, you don't have to worry about cleaning up anything!

So if you're thinking about giving it a try this year, here are five restaurants in the Portland area that are serving up some delicious feasts on Thanksgiving Day:

Saltwater Grille, South Portland

The Union Kitchen, Portland

Five Fifty-Five

Broad Arrow Tavern, Freeport

York Harbor Inn, York Harbor

Are there any others doing this that should be on the list? Let us know, with a comment on the Facebook post!
