Thanksgiving Day 2021: Restaurants open in Miami & South Florida

“Eat, drink and be thankful.” That much-loved saying is especially fitting if you don’t have to cook and clean up after your Thanksgiving Day feast! If eating out for Thanksgiving is part of your plan this year, we’ve got a list of South Florida restaurants planning to be open for dining out or taking out on Thursday, Nov. 25, 2021.

Note that prices, hours and participation may vary by location, and beverages are extra at most venues with fixed-price meals. For specific details, check with each restaurant.

We will continue adding to this list as restaurants announce their Thanksgiving plans, so keep checking back! If you know of other Miami restaurants that will be open on Thanksgiving Day and offering reasonably priced meals, email us at or

Some restaurants are letting you dine in; others also offer meals to-go. It’s up to you how safe you feel celebrating this year. If you plan on eating at a restaurant, you’ll have the most success if you make reservations well ahead of time.

Note: There’s a difference between restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner and restaurants open for Thanksgiving. If you want the full, traditional turkey dinner, look for restaurants open that are also serving that special meal. 

Similarly, where to buy a cooked Thanksgiving dinner is a different question too, and we’ve rounded that information up here.
