Scout has always been the destination to cheer on the big game, but this year, the Flower Mound outpost of the sports-themed restaurant will be the place to cheer for Thanksgiving. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Scout will serve a free Thanksgiving dinner to guests who RSVP.

When Flower Mound was first founded, it quickly became a “bedroom community,” and it was home to mostly families. Now, however, developments like the River Walk at Central Park have brought young professionals, singles and retirees to the community. Scout’s management wants these newcomers to feel welcomed this Thanksgiving.

“We want all of Flower Mound and the surrounding areas to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with a sense of family and community,” explained Greg Retz, CEO of RW F&B, the restaurant’s management company. “We are excited to host our neighbors here at Scout to celebrate Thanksgiving with us.”

While reservations are not required for the free Thanksgiving dinner, guests are asked to RSVP at in order to ensure enough food for everyone. RSVPs should be done by Friday, Nov. 18.

Guests will enjoy a complete Thanksgiving feast with all the sides but are limited to one serving per person.  While dinner will be served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Scout will remain open so guests can enjoy watching all of their favorite football games the remainder of the day with Happy Hour drink pricing all day.

RW F&B Director of Operations Jamie Creevy has a strong affinity for sharing this Thanksgiving experience.

“I’ve been able to offer complimentary Thanksgiving Dinner at another restaurant, and I’ve seen the impact that it has,” said Creevy. “It is so rewarding, not only for the guests but for the restaurant staff as well.”

RW F&B, the restaurant’s management company, solicited volunteers from among their employees to work the Thanksgiving dinner.

“We know many of our team members wanted to enjoy Thanksgiving with their families,” said Retz. “However, we’ve been so happy to see how many of our team wanted to participate by giving back to the community.”
