Ahh, Thanksgiving … time to visit with family and friends, watch some football, plan your Black Friday shopping spree, and … spend hours in the kitchen cooking and cleaning?
Millions of Americans choose to dine out for Thanksgiving, and for good reason. When you opt for a restaurant on Turkey Day, you:
These are a lot of “don’ts” but what you will get to do in a restaurant is let professional chefs prepare a three- or four-course meal while waiters bring each course out to you to enjoy. And, once the pile of delicious food is gone, you won’t have to face a pile of dirty dishes in the kitchen.
If you’re thinking about joining the millions who dine out on Thanksgiving Day, consider one of these four Annapolis restaurants that will be open this holiday:
Ram’s Head Tavern: For only $21.95 for adults and $10.95 for children, guests at Ram’s Head Tavern will dine on a three-course meal including lots of sides to choose from. The Tavern will also offer its full menu, and you’ll have plenty of time to swing by since it will be open from 11 a.m. Thursday until 2 a.m. Friday, reservation recommended.
Ruth’s Chris Steak House: You may not have considered going to a steak house on Thanksgiving, and Ruth’s Chris will be serving their savory steaks this holiday. But they’ll also offer a traditional three-course Thanksgiving meal with oven-roasted turkey and sweet potato casserole from noon until 8 p.m., reservations recommended.
Chart House Restaurant: If you’re in the mood for an atypical Thanksgiving meal, Chart House will offer its menu of seafood and steaks on Turkey Day. But, this favorite Annapolis will also offer a traditional turkey dinner with all your favorite sides. Either way, this restaurant offers plenty of options for the whole family. Open 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., reservation required.
Sam’s on the Waterfront: Kick back and enjoy a gorgeous view of the water while you gobble, gobble, gobble. Sam’s offers a four-course Thanksgiving dinner, offered from 11:30 a.m. – 9 p.m., reservations recommended.
