Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving Day 2012 in Palm Beach County: Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Boynton Beach

UPDATE: Unless you own a time machine we assume you will be happier with our current list of Broward Restaurants Serving Thanksgiving Dinner 2015 and Palm Beach County Restaurants Serving Thanksgiving Dinner 2015.

Burning the holy hell out of the turkey (while still somehow mangaing to keep it frozen solid in the middle). Whipping up mashed potatoes that could stand in for the caulk needed for your kitchen remodel. Failing to buy enough wine. There's a lot that could go wrong when trying to organize and execute a Thanksgiving feast.

Whether you're just not in the mood to cook, you're flying solo, or are visiting South Florida over the holiday, there are plenty of restaurants in Palm Beach County that will be open Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 22) and ready to serve you a holiday feast.

After the jump, find a breakdown of some of local choices in a list that's organized by city. Stay tuned for a Broward County list coming later this week. And remember: Reservations are highly recommended for any holiday meal.
