Hi there! How’s your Saturday so far? We went into town earlier and brought Spanky to the beach again. He is crazy about it! As promised, I wanted to show you the Thanksgiving feast my family and I enjoyed this past Thursday. Instead of preparing a meal at home, we decided to go out to eat and wound up having a great time. Our Thanksgiving Dinner was eaten at Captain Linnell House in Orleans, MA.
Captain Linnell Table is an old home which was owned by a sea captain in the 1800’s. The interior is still incredibly old fashioned and the menu is comprised of good, hearty New England cuisine; seafood, steak, and chowder.
After ordering drinks (a glass of red zinfandel for me) we took a few pictures before deciding what to order:
As an appetizer, my mom and I each ordered a cup of mushroom soup while Gillian and my dad went for the oysters.
Sorry, I didn’t get a shot of the soup!
I was pretty shocked with how many options there were for dinner. There was a choice of turkey (of course!), ham, duck, sea bass, and salmon. I think there were one or two other choices but I was totally set on having my turkey!
The turkey was perfectly moist and the sides were amazing. The stuffing (which you don’t see because it’s underneath the turkey) was definitely my favorite side dish. I ate most of my plate, but not everything, it was just too much and I wanted to make sure I had room for dessert! I chose to order a piece of the pumpkin custard pie which was really good, but not fantastic. The dinner was way better than the dessert.
All in all, a fabulous was to spend Thanksgiving!
Question: Have you ever eaten out for a Holiday? Were you impressed with the food?
