    Are you thinking traditional turkey meal, or any other particular type of cuisine?

    If you like fine seafood dining, I highly recommend Pappas. They do have a location in The Woodlands.

    My suggestion is The Woodlands Inn and Conference Center. Either one of the two eateries (than main restaurant, or the Glass Menagerie) are an excellent value for the money. If you want all the champagne that you can drink included and the beautiful view of the lake, you should choose the Glass Menagerie, Bon Appetite...!!!

    PS You will find The Woodlands Inn at the heart of the Woodlands in front of the golf course and the lake, It is Magnificent

    Lone Star -

    In reply to your question, I'm primarily interested in a traditional Thanksgiving meal. However, I'm open to other types of cuisine. It just means I might need to bake my own pumpkin pie!

    Cajun fried Turkey with dirty rice, broccoli rice casserole or green beans, sweet potato casserole with the brown sugar cinnamon pecan topping, cornbread dressing with giblet gravy, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, some cheese and olives, and both a pecan and sweet potato pie, plus lots of iced tea. I don't know what others eat, but this is traditional in SouthEast Texas.

    Sweet Potato Cass. is cooked sweet potatoes, mashed with butter, sugar, a dash of vanilla and cinnamon, and add eggs to it and put it in an 8x8 greased pan, put on topping, bake on 350 for 35 minutes. The topping is melted butter with brown sugar, a little bit of flour and lots of pecans.
    3# of sweet potatoes, peeled, and cooked
    1 c sugar
    1 stick of oleo or butter
    2 eggs
    2 tsp of cinnamon
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    Topping:
    1/2 stick butter, melted
    1 c light brown sugar
