Thanksgiving week is officially here which in some ways is one of the busiest weeks of the year here on the Outer Banks. Seems a bit counterintuitive because . . . well, the weather isn’t alway all that great this late in the season.
Thanksgiving, though, being probably the best family holiday ever—what can be better than lots of food surrounded by people who genuinely love care for one another—seems to bring our property owners to the beach with their families.
That’s one of those great reasons for owning a home at the beach, the chance to getaway with your family when it means the most.
Of course, one of the problems is, after spending six or seven hours in a car getting to the destination, a lot of people don’t feel like spending an extra hour or two shopping for Turkey Day dinner and then putting in another half day preparing it.
Luckily, a number of Outer Banks restaurants have stepped forward to relieve the stress of Thanksgiving in the kitchen.
Here then is the Joe Lamb, Jr. list of restaurants that are serving Thanksgiving Day dinners. Some are buffet, some offer table service and some fix the meal to be popped in the oven for a couple of hours.
We may have missed one or two, so if a favorite is not on the list, call and make sure we didn’t miss it.
