I love Thanksgiving dinner. But I'm not a huge fan of all the cooking and cleaning that goes with it. This year, why not join your friends and family to a Thanksgiving buffet that's (almost) worthy of Grandma? Here are my suggestions for a Thanksgiving buffet that will be a legendary experience for your friends and family to enjoy.

  • Coyote Moon Grille

    St. Cloud

    Coyote Moon Grille -- overlooking the beautiful Territory Golf Club -- is the perfect place to enjoy Thanksgiving buffet with turkey, ham, beef roast, shrimp and more. Six miles from downtown St. Cloud.

  • Green Mill

    St. Cloud

    Think about making the Green Mill restaurant part of your family's Thanksgiving tradition this year. Ham, pot roast, turkey and seafood with all the trimmings, plus a chocolate fountain. Located in downtown St. Cloud.

  • 400 Supper Club

    Pleasant Lake

    If you're looking for an out-of-town experience over-looking the beautiful Pleasant Lake, the 400 Supper Club restaurant and lounge is the place for you and your family. It's a restaurant that's been around since the 1930's. A great buffet with turkey, ham, beef tips and all the trimmings, just eight minutes from St. Cloud on County Road 6.

  • Russell's on the Lake

    Big Lake

    Russell's on the Lake overlooks Big Lake. The restaurant is all decked-out for the holidays. Enjoy a spread of food with turkey and their famous salad bar. Located on Highway 10 in Big Lake.

  • Blue Line Sports Bar and Grill

    St. Cloud location

    Blue Line Sports Bar and Grill, St. Cloud's newest restaurant is offering a Thanksgiving feast. Check out the ice on the bar. And then take a look at the traditional feast on their Thanksgiving Menu featuring turkey, ham and all the trimmings.
