With so much work going into the Thanksgiving meal, sometimes it’s best to take the night off to focus on enjoying the company of friends and family. Luckily, there are plenty of amazing Long Island eateries that will be open for the occasion. This year, leave it to the professionals and visit one of these delicious Thanksgiving restaurants in our area.
The Top Thanksgiving Restaurants on Long Island
This Thanksgiving, enjoy your holiday dinner in a building almost as old as Thanksgiving itself. Not really, but the Davenport Press building in Mineola was originally built in 1896 as a printing press. However, in 1978, its owners converted it to a restaurant decorated with gorgeous exposed brick and historic antiques.
This Thanksgiving restaurant is offering a delicious meal for $39.95 per person and $21.95 for children under 10. Besides mouthwatering appetizers like Baked Clams, Stuffed Mushrooms, Rigatoni Alla Vodka and more, there will be plenty of your favorite entrées, such as:
- Roast Turkey with Giblet Gravy and Chestnut Stuffing
- Roast Long Island Duckling
- Shrimp Scampi with Linguine
- Broiled Salmon with Roasted Pepper Sauce
Finish off Thanksgiving dinner strong with sweet, yet tasty desserts, like Apple Crisp, Pecan Pie, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Mousse and so much more.
The Milleridge Inn
Step back in time and experience one of the area’s hidden treasures this Thanksgiving, The Milleridge Inn of Jericho. For over 80 years, this Long Island institution has been enthralling diners with classic dishes and ornate decor.
If you dine in the Inn itself, they will be serving a sit-down prix fixe meal for $52.95 for adults and $26.95 for children 2-12. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., you can try all kinds of incredible eats like Roasted Young Turkey, Pan-Roasted Atlantic Salmon and Chicken Milleridge.

Gusto Divino Trattoria
On November 22, try something different and go for an Italian Thanksgiving restaurant like Gusto Divino Trattoria in Seaford. From the owner down to the busboys, the entire staff takes great pride in providing an environment and fare that are of the highest value and quality.
For $55 per person, you can choose from first course dishes like Fried Calamari, Pumpkin Ravioli and Rigatoni Filetto Pomodoro. Then, House or Caesar salad will be your second course. For your main dish, of course they will have turkey, but think about trying an Italian favorite like:
