Nothing can ruin an extended family gathering like slow service or messed-up orders at a restaurant that has trouble accommodating large parties. With the holidays near, it will be even more important that diners find restaurants that won’t leave their families restless.

Reservation website OpenTable just released its 2017 list of the 100 best restaurants for group dining in the United States. The list was generated from over 10 million user reviews, and restaurants were chosen based on the percentage of reviews that included the “great for groups” designation. You can see the full list here.
