Ruth’s Chris Steak House
Ruth’s Chris Steak House is another fantastic option for providing a special meal for Thanksgiving dinner. You can opt to eat in Ruth’s Chris or order ahead of time for takeaway options.

Cracker Barrel is another good option for saving a trip to the grocery store and having Thanksgiving dinner prepared for you! You can choose from a Heat and Serve Family Dinner for 4-6, a Heat and Serve Feast for 8-10, or a Hot and Ready Family Dinner.
The Heat and Serve options include roasted turkey breast, cornbread dressing, turkey gravy, cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole, choice of country side dishes from the regular dinner menu, and sweet yeast rolls.

Cracker Barrel is a favorite restaurant in our family, so I know our crew would be thrilled with this option.
