Restaurants open for Thanksgiving dinner

We will be in the Des Moines area over Thanksgiving weekend for a football game. I have searched and searched online but cannot find any information about restaurants that will be open for Thanksgiving dinner. We'd prefer not to eat at a chain, if possible. If you know of a restaurant that will be offering Thanksgiving dinner please let me know. Thanks!!

Mimi's Cafe has closed down, I think. It was great, and I hated to see it shuttered. Here is a link to some options open on Thanksgiving in Des Moines: dmjuice.com/find-elaborate-thanksgiving-meal…

Cracker Barrel was open on Thanksgiving, packed, with a 2 1/4 hour wait for a table. I noticed that Granite City was open in Des Moines, a friend had good luck at the Davenport Granite City on Thanksgiving Day. I did not ask if either restaurant took reservations.
