Art Restaurant and Lounge 11:30–7:30
The four-course feast is full of fall flavors: selections include roasted beets, ginger pumpkin bisque, turkey with sage chestnut stuffing, grilled venison loin, root vegetable cassoulet, apple cobbler, and pumpkin and pecan pies. $75/adult; $35/children ages six to 12. Call 206-749-7070 to reserve.

Chandler’s Crabhouse, noon–9
There’s turkey, of course, but also grilled king salmon, prime rib, or crab stuffed prawns. Desserts include eggnog creme brulee and pie. $45/adult; $12/children ages 6 to 10; children under five are free. Call 206-223-2722 or go online for reservations.

Cutters Bayhouse, noon–8
Opt for a traditional free-range bird with apple sausage stuffing and homemade gravy for $24. Or break out of the mold with crab cakes, seafood brochette, or char-grilled filet mignon going from $25 to $42. Call 206-448-4884 reservations.

Daniel’s Broiler, 2–9 at South Lake Union; noon–9 at the Leschi Marina and Bellevue locations
Prime rib, maple-cured pork roast, broiled salmon, or turkey make up the mains, but first come clam chowder or greens and a tray of smoked salmon and herbed goat cheese. Follow the savories with the sweet: creme brulee, chocolate raspberry charlotte, ice cream, or pumpkin pie. $50/adult; $12/children ages six to 10. Book reservations online.

Ponti Seafood Grill, 1–8
Red curry butternut squash soup or organic greens kick off the meal. Then it’s your choice of three entrees: cider and sugar-brined turkey; grilled sockeye salmon; or prime rib. All of them are served with sides like glazed yams, garlic whipped potatoes, sauteed veggies, and cranberry-ginger chutney. Pumpkin pie and vanilla whipped cream sweeten the deal, as do views of the canal. $39/adult; $15/child ages 12 and under. Call 206-284-3000 for reservations.

Ray’s Boathouse, noon–8
This seated affair is sold out, but to get on a waiting list call 206-789-3770. The upstairs cafe’s buffet is booked, too.

Sazerac, noon–7
This year the feast is family style. Share cheeseboards and charcuterie before passing around St. Louis–style pork ribs, lamb sausage, skirt steak, and turkey. Two, three, and four main courses are $40, $50, and $60, respectively, and all come with three side dishes and dessert. Call 206-624-7755 for reservations.
