QUINCY (WGEM) - Some families spent their Thanksgiving dinner gathered in local restaurants. One Quincy owner said they had a great turnout this year after a challenging year with COVID-19.

The Abbey Owner Gabe McClean said last year they did carryout dinners, but this year families dined in and feasted on turkey dinners with roasted turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and homemade gravy, stuffing, green beans, pumpkin pie and cheesecake.

McClean said they sold more than 220 of these dinners just in the first half of the day. He said they usually sell about 300 in an entire day.

“There’s a lot of families out there that don’t put together big spreads, or want to come out and don’t want to cook. So we do it so everybody can get together with their family and enjoy a good dinner,” McClean said.

McClean said families were also able to sit in their new dinning areas. He said they spent the last year renovating the back portion of the restaurant to add more seating.

“So we turned it from our old kitchen, that was rather small by the way, into more additional seating. My dad did. He put his own touches on it. Come out check it out it looks great,” he said.

He said they have plans to open up these new seating areas for reservations and private parties.
