they do have gluten free alternatives. I believe they will have a traditional thanksgiving dinner. However there are so many other places that will have that offered too. Perfect time to visit Sedona.

It depends on how busy the restaurant is. It might be too busy on a Saturday night in High Season but only the kitchen can determine that. The number is 928-284-3010

Description
In the lovely village of Oak Creek, Sedona you'll find a gem...The doorway to the imagination awaits you here. Old World decor with hand-crafted antique doors and ornate iron gates from around the world, draw you in then transport you back in time. The restaurant wraps its arms around you and settles you into a dining experience that many foodies seek out, but rarely find. The restaurant has won numerous awards of excellence for food and service, as well as Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 12 consecutive years. You will see Chef Lisa Dahl almost every evening visiting with guests, signing her award-winning cookbook, and in the kitchen paying close attention to every detail to ensure you'll have the most enjoyable dining experience. Happy Hour: Sunday-Thursday 4:00-6:00 PM.
