Let’s talk turkey. The bird is, after all, the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving feast. Enjoy this annual tradition at some of our favorite spots when visiting Savannah for the holiday.
The Olde Pink House, located in a renovated Southern mansion, provides the perfect setting for the festive meal. From the exceptional food to the impeccable service to the lovely ambiance, your family is sure to enjoy the experience. As for the Thanksgiving fare, the turkey is tender, the sides taste like grandma’s cooking, and the desserts are decadent. You can also choose something outside the ordinary like seafood, steak, or lobster tails. Make a reservation for this exceptional meal
The Pirates’ House Grand Thanksgiving Buffet hits the spot when dining with kids. The buffet includes a choice of several freshly prepared salads, and all the traditional sides, along with spoon bread, a roasted butternut squash, and rutabaga combo, and bacon-braised collard greens, and more. In addition to a slow-roasted, brown butter-basted turkey, entrees include Lowcountry shrimp and grits, prime rib, ham with a bourbon old fashion glaze, and honey pecan fried chicken. Diners can also pile on the seafood dishes like peel and eat shrimp, poached salmon, and baked stuffed oysters. And we haven’t even started with the desserts.
Of course, you can always order a Thanksgiving meal for pick-up to put out a spread at your luxury vacation property. Many of our homes have gorgeous formal dining rooms, fully equipped kitchens, and spacious living areas for entertaining.
Use the Holiday Eve Ordering Form from Paula Deen’s The Lady and Sons Restaurant for pick up on Wednesday, Nov. 23. The menu includes whole turkey or sliced turkey, sliced ham, gravy (of course), dressing, broccoli casserole, yams, collard greens, butterbeans and more. You can even order a dozen of Paula Deen’s famous biscuits for your holiday meal. Desserts include banana pudding, peach cobbler, and vanilla or chocolate “gooeys.” You can’t go wrong with a delicious holiday dinner from the kitchen of the Queen of Southern Cuisine.
