A Celebration of Thanksgiving

With the fall harvest in full swing, our thoughts turn to the coming season and our favorite holiday of the year, Thanksgiving. It takes place during our favorite time of year to cook, and as the weather turns colder we always feel a special warmth in the gift of hospitality, family, and friends. It is indeed a special day, one which always makes us proud to be able to be a part of your celebration.

Our Thanksgiving dinners have been very successful in years past, and we’ve been caught a little behind this year as the phone has been ringing off the hook with requests for reservations for Thanksgiving Dinner 2015. This year, we wanted to take a little extra time and reflect on the meals we have served in the past, and how we can make the day a warmer, more familial experience. To that end, we are taking reservations for four seating this year, rather then the traditional reservations of previous years.

The entire meal will be served family-style to your table and there is no limit to party size this year, reservations will be taken first come, first served. Tables of all sizes are available, so whether you are a couple of friends out for the holiday or an extended family of fifteen, we will welcome you for a special dinner of thanks for the year’s blessings. As always, everything is homemade with local farm produce.

Three seatings are available: 1:00, 5:00, and 7:00. Each meal service will take approximately one and a half hours, allowing time to relax and visit before, during, and after service. In our experience, the afternoon times will fill up the fastest, so call and reserve early if that is your preference. That said, we expect to be sold out weeks in advance, so please make your plans as soon as you are able, we would love to have you!

Reservations are available by telephone only, please call 773-275-5725
