Enjoy Thanksgiving dinner in the spacious former-church interiors of 5Church | Provided

Cooking and preparing Thanksgiving dinner is tiring enough, but having to host family members at your house can be even more tiring, with all the extra cleaning and organizing you have to do.

If the cleaning’s already been done, but you don’t know what to cook, check out the ready-to-make meals other Charleston restaurants have to offer, but if you want to get out of the house this Thanksgiving, these Charleston restaurants are offering special dinners to save you the time and hassle of the holiday:
