After reserving your choice of lodging, be sure to make your reservations for dinner prepared by Executive Chef Stephen J. Moises and staff. Dinner will be served from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m. and features its long-standing traditional feast and a few surprise dishes too.
Start your Thanksgiving meal off with roasted butternut squash soup before moving on to the second course of a prawn cocktail salad. The main course includes your choice of: honey maple glazed roast turkey with cornbread stuffing, mushroom gravy, creamy whipped potatoes, brussel sprouts and a citrus cranberry relish; brown sugar glazed Virginia ham with a sweet potato mash, glazed carrots, and a ginger and pineapple chutney; crab crusted salmon with grilled shrimp and yam hash, braised fennel and thyme jus; or slow roasted prime rib with grilled asparagus, twice baked sweet potatoes, au jus and creamy horseradish. Make sure you save room for dessert of homemade pumpkin pie with caramel sauce, vanilla scented whipped cream and seasonal berries.
Long regarded as an iconic favorite at South Shore, the resort’s family appeal and stunning panoramic views make for an ideal Thanksgiving vacation away from home.
