Baron’s Restaurant at the Hotel Colorado, Rivers Restaurant and the Redstone Inn all feature elegant, often historic settings. Expect a well-planned, gourmet Thanksgiving meal.

The casual experience. Prefer a more low-key setting? The Village Inn will be dishing up traditional favorites. Save room for dessert, the restaurant is famous for its huge selection of mouth-watering pies.

The Southern experience. For turkey with a twist, Glenwood Springs offers two options. The Lost Cajun will be serving deliciously moist deep-fried turkeys with Southern sides like baked beans. Smoke Modern Barbeque, while not open on Thanksgiving is accepting take-out orders for smoked turkeys, prime rib and sides available for pickup on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
