Best Places to Order Thanksgiving Dinner from in the Area

It's time for the annual Thanksgiving Dinner debate! Who will be cooking this year? The thought of prepping an elaborate meal can be daunting. There's all the planning, prepwork, shopping, cleaning up, and just the general holiday hustle and bustle that makes it hard to find time or energy to cook. 

Luckily, there are plenty of options in Annapolis, MD for ordering Thanksgiving dinner to make your life easier this year. And it’s a great way to support a local restaurant! We've scoped out a few of our favorites below.

Annapolis Smokehouse & Tavern

Annapolis Smokehouse & Tavern is one to write home about on any day of the year — especially when it comes to brisket mac-n-cheese or the rack of ribs. But they take Thanksgiving to a whole new level.

They'll be offering two sizes of smoked turkey, bourbon cherry glazed ham, unique sides like cornbread & oyster stuffing, southern maryland sauerkraut, and slow stewed turkey gravy, and three choices of pie.

Check out all the details on their website and be sure to get your meal ordered by November 18th.

Blackwall Hitch

If you're looking for an exquisite atmosphere and ZERO cleanup on Thanksgiving, look no further than Blackwall Hitch. The restaurant is well-known for its delightful brunches and beachside ambiance. And for the holiday, they'll be pairing an exceptional buffet menu with views of the harbor to make your day feel decidedly classier.

Start your meal with butternut squash soup, followed by a carving station with four types of meat, endless traditional sides, and an assortment of cakes and pies.

We know you love spending time in your Sturbridge home, but this one is worth getting out of the house for! Make your reservation by November 25th on their website.

Garry's Grill & Catering

We were sold onGarry's Grill after tasting the garlic rosemary ribeye. So of course this Thanksgiving to-go menu made our list!

It's a delicious meal-for-four, complete with all the fixings, from turkey and mashed potatoes, to stuffing, casserole, and pumpkin pie. They even include a gallon of spiced tea. Talk about an easy meal!

Be sure to order by November 20th by calling 410-544-0499 or emailing

Miss Shirley's Cafe

They haven't officially announced a Thanksgiving menu (although they have offered one in the past) but we have to include Miss Shirley's Cafe because of their incredible seasonal options!

Whether or not they decide to create a special Thanksgiving day meal, you can order food for pickup. So don't miss out on these tasty fall specials:

  • Sweet potato pancakes
  • Ciabatta sandwich piled high with hot smoked turkey, cornbread stuffing, cranberry orange relish, and sage gravy
  • Cranberry apple cheesecake stuffed French toast

These are just a few of the things we're craving from Miss Shirley's! Stay up-to-date on their holiday menu on Facebook.

Cooper's Hawk

Wine-lovers unite for a feast from Cooper's Hawk! They've planned an amazing "heat & serve" meal with all the mouthwatering flavors you need at a November get-together. And of course they include a wine-pairing to complement the meal. All you have to do is place your order and save the date of November 26th for pickup at either of their two locations.

We're excited to dip pretzel bread into the butternut squash soup and sample Eli's pumpkin praline cheesecake! As a bonus, if you're a Wine Club Member, you get 10% off your Thanksgiving order.
