A Celebration of Thanksgiving

With the nights getting colder and the harvest underway, we look forward 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 cools 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.

Thanksgivins 2016 and 2017 were both warm and convivial days, so we are once again taking reservations for seatings and serving a family-style meal so it feels more like home.

The entire meal will be served family-style to your table and there is no limit to party size, 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, we go the extra mile, procuring, pickling, preserving, butchering, curing, and baking everything in house, to ensure your dinner is truly one of a kind, not available anywhere else.

Three seatings are available: 1:00, 4:00, 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
