Lanier Islands is Cooking Up Something Special for Thanksgiving 2017

Here at Lanier Islands, we’re always looking for new ways to serve as your “something to be thankful for.” This Thanksgiving, we’ve come up with the perfect answer! On Thursday, November 23, we invite you to give yourself a well-deserved break and leave the cooking and cleaning to us. In addition to a bountiful buffet prepared by our talented culinary team, we offer a beautiful backdrop in our Grand Ballroom at Legacy Lodge. From the glowing embers in our lobby fireplace to stunning views of the lake through nearly every window, you’ll soon see why it was selected to become a member of the Southern Living Hotel Collection. Add to that the opportunity to take part in the 25th Anniversary of Magical Nights of Lights and enjoy an overnight stay with our Thanksgiving Celebration Package, and you can transform an annual meal into an unforgettable event for the ones you love!

Of course, the most alluring aspect of our Thanksgiving Buffet is the FOOD! With a menu as extensive as ours, we’ll just hit a few of the highly appetizing highlights:
