There’s a lot to love about the holidays, but all the planning can be … a lot. Or, you can just make plans to celebrate at Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille in Birmingham. From Thanksgiving family dinner to a hot date night for New Year’s Eve, from private parties to gift giving, Perry’s pulls it off scrumptiously.

1. Our Gravy Boat Runneth Over

Now’s the time to make Thanksgiving dinner plans, and for the first time, Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille is hosting. Their three-course traditional Thanksgiving dinner menu, for $49.95 per person, includes:

  • Choice of Butternut Squash Soup or Honeycrisp Apple Salad with Dried Cherries, Walnuts and Maple Syrup Vinaigrette
  • Roast Turkey Breast with pan gravy and all the traditional fixings, including Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Almondine, Sausage and Sage Cornbread Stuffing and Cranberry Relish
  • Pumpkin Pie with Chantilly Cream (Better than Grandma’s. Don’t tell her I said that.)

Perry’s even remembered the kids’ table. For ages 12 and under, a $15 kid’s plate includes the Roast Turkey Breast with pan gravy and all of the traditional fixings: Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Almondine, Sausage and Sage Cornbread Stuffing and Cranberry Relish. (Salad, soup and dessert will be available for additional purchase.)

Add this to your list of things to be thankful for. With Perry’s full dinner menu available alongside the prix-fixe Thanksgiving dinner menu, everyone around the table—vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free diners and die-hard fans of Perry’s Famous 7-Finger Pork Chop—can say thanks for a “Rare and Well Done” meal.

Make those reservations! On Thanksgiving day, Nov. 22, Perry’s will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Call 205-968-1597 or visit perryssteakhouse.com to make your plans today.
