Thanksgiving in Avila Beach

Thanksgiving in Avila Beach

Thanksgiving is just a few days away… This year I have been getting a lot of emails from people asking which restaurants are open for dinner. I can unusually answer most question I get without having to do some research, but this one I had no idea. Which restaurants are open in Avila Beach for Thanksgiving? I always get dragged around to all the different families houses and “forced” to eat multiple dinners. This year however we are expecting our little girl to be born any day now, so we made no plans and are just planning on having Thanksgiving here in Avila. So I have emailed and called around and here is what I found out… The Grill at Avila Beach (On the Golf Course) will be serving a traditional style Thanksgiving Menu starting at 2pm-7pm. Chef Mark has put his own touch on the meal your Grandma used to make. The Custom House (On the Beach in Downtown Avila) is open from 8am – 1pm serving the normal Breakfast/Lunch Menu and then from 1pm-7pm serving a special Thanksgiving dinner menu. The Gardens of Avila (On the Lush Sycamore Resort) is open 12:30-8 pm for dinner serving a special Thanksgiving Menu. Olde Port Inn (On the end of the Harford Pier in Port San Luis) is open from 3-8pm and serving a Prime Rib or Turkey special. I called and emailed most places that serve food and these are the ones I found that are going to be open. But if you don’t see your favorite make sure to use our restaurant guide and give them a call to make sure yourself. If you find out anything please let me know by email me at Jay@avilabeachpier.com so I can pass it on to everyone else. Have a wonderful...
