Hopefully this list of St. Augustine restaurants open on Thanksgiving will help make your quest simpler! I do suggest reservations and that you call to find out hours and whether they’re offering a full or a special menu. This is not a list of every restaurant in St. Augustine open on Thanksgiving, but any restaurant that is linked to a review I’ve written is recommended! Thanksgiving isn’t the day to try somewhere new unless you’ve read up and know it’s going to be good. 😉 {read: restaurants that aren’t linked have not been reviewed by me either due to my limited time/budget OR because it’s not recommended… same for restaurants not on this list. Feel free to email me if you’re from out of town & need help deciding!}

    Rhett’s will be open. I just shared the post and it’s good traffic for mid-day! I had to put a different photo on it bc when it shares- it goes to your massage therapist. XO

      Rhetts is no longer in business per the recording. Anniversary this past Saturday ruined after reservation were made weeks in advance!!! Disappointing!

        Ivette- When new owners bought Rhett’s & Scarlett’s, there was no word of them planning to close Rhett’s. But I heard the same message you did. I’m so sorry for your anniversary plans being affected by this! 🙁 I’ve updated my page to reflect this closure. Thanks for sharing. ~Allie O

    Allie – we’ve been ‘locals’ now for almost 12 years & have always done Thanksgiving at home. This year we’re looking for somewhere with a really nice holiday offering. Top suggestions would be appreciated!

      Ok Wayne! I’ll try to update this list today… but I would happily go to La Pentola or Costa Brava any day of the year. I guess it depends on how causal or fancy you like to be on Thanksgiving. Which way do you lean? ~Allie O
