Commander's Runs Out of Turkey on Thanksgiving!

Pretty shocking, but true...we had an 8pm reservation and were told (after we were seated and greeted) that they had run out of turkey at 7:30--so all visions of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner had to be cancelled. So we had fish and duck, spinach salad--all of which seemed like they had been sitting around for a while. Only the filet mignon was really good. Service was lightening fast--I guess the staff wanted to go home after a long day.

It was a mistake to reserve there in the first place--should have known better. But this was a very expensive mistake and we sure did miss our Thanksgiving turkey and trimmings!
