Once I submit the online reservation form, does that guarantee me a reservation?
The online submission is a request for a reservation, and isn’t finalized until you receive a confirmation email.
How long does it take to get a confirmation email?
Please allow up to two business days for us to confirm your reservation.
Can I pick an exact time for my reservation?
We have set reservation times throughout the day in order to accommodate all of the guests who wish to join. The earliest time slot you can reserve is 12pm noon, and the latest 7:00pm. Please enter the time you wish to join us and we’ll do our best to get a reservation as close to that time as possible. Time slots are limited, so reserve your spot today!
Do I need to bring my eMail reservation to get it?
Nope! Just let our team member know your name and you’re ready to go!
How long can I stay for the buffet?
In order to accommodate the reservations for all of the guests that wish to join us, reservations are set for an allotted time. Each reservation is for a total of 90 minutes. We can not check you in early as it may interfere with another guest’s reservation.
Can I call the restaurant to request a reservation, reservation change, special request, or to ask questions about Thanksgiving this year?
Our restaurants will not be accepting reservations this year. Requests to modify a reservation must be submitted by replying to your reservation confirmation email. If you have questions, you may call 773.669.6778. Here you can leave your questions and contact information, and a representative will call you back within 1-2 business days. Please do not leave multiple messages on this line, as it may slow the response time.
Can I change my reservation, and if so, how?
Our reservation team will do their best to accommodate any requests for modifications to your reservation. We cannot guarantee another time or a larger table once a reservation has been set, but we can facilitate if available. To submit a request for a reservation modification, send a
reply from your original reservation confirmation email.
Can I bring extra people if they’re not on my reservation?
We do not recommend bringing additional guests that are not on your reservation. Tables are assigned according to the number of individuals in a reservation, and there may not be a seat for them. Please submit any request to add additional guests to your party to our reservation team.
Can I select my seat when I get there?
Seating is assigned, and you will be taken to your table after you’ve checked in.
Can I set multiple reservations, in case I can’t make one of them?
No, please do not set multiple reservations. We often fill all open reservation slots, and this would take a reservation slot away from another guest that wishes to join us on Thanksgiving.
How can I make special requests?
You may include any special requests with your form, in the “Special Requests” section. We will do our best to accommodate your request. Please note that we cannot accommodate special menu requests.
Do I need to pay in advance?
No, payment is taken at the restaurant when you check-in.
Is there parking available?
Dedicated parking is not available. Some of our locations are on properties with a parking lot, and parking is generally available in the area for the rest of our participation locations.
Can I take food home with me from the buffet?
Food from our Thanksgiving buffet may not be taken home, unless a separate takeout meal has been paid for.
Can I do a takeout order for the buffet?
Yes! We do offer holiday meals to go at all of our buffet locations (see next question). For takeout, you are given a standard number of boxes to fill at the buffet. Once filled, the food must be taken away. Takeout guests are unable to dine with us on Thanksgiving, unless a separate dine-in reservation has been paid for.
