Thanksgiving is one of our most cherished holidays. In the coming days, families and friends will gather together for food, football, and did I mention food?

But the idea of planning a get-together for the whole gang can be expensive, time-consuming and might also induce some major stress.

So we have helped make it easier by compiling a group of restaurants offering Thanksgiving meals in Eastern Iowa. Here's hoping the holiday finds you safe and happy in the company of your loved ones. Happy Thanksgiving!
