I have been in OC for several Thanksgivings in the last 10 years. My family and I always have a great time. The best way to know what is open is to keep watching ococean.com and the links below for more info. Here are a few places that are open every year and thy offer great Thanksgiving meals:

Captain's Table (410.289.7192) A great OC restaurant in the Courtyard by Marriott at 15th Street that usually offers a Thanksgiving menu plus some seafood items. My brother's family ate there with my mom last Thanksgiving and really enjoyed it!

The Victoria Room in the Dunes Manor at 28th Street offers a Thanksgiving meal and is an excellent choice.

Fager's Island (410.524.5500) On the bay at 60th Street. They  usually have a sit down service Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. It is about $25 for adults and $13 for kids.

Clarion Horizons Room (410.524.3535) in the Clarion at 101st Street usually has a Thanksgiving Buffet with traditional fare and some seafood items too

The Bonfire (410.524.7171) at 70th Street has their usual all you can eat buffet, with traditional Thanksgiving items added.

No mater where you decide to go, you definitely want to call ahead and make reservations.

There is plenty to do in OC at Thanksgiving. Be sure to visit the Winterfest of Lights and checkout this thread for some more ideas.

Have a great Thanksgiving in OC!

Hi Karen,

We have spent a few Thanksgivings in OC.  The last one, we ordered dinner fin advance from Harris Teeter in Fenwick Island and dined at our home at the beach.  But many places do offer a traditional Thanksgiving dinner including 32 Palm, Princess Royale, Dunes Manor, Ruth Chris, Captain's Table, The Shark, Fagers, BJs, and the Embers.
