thanksgiving for large family near annapolis/baltimore
Last year, our family did Thanksgiving at Maggiano's. Sounds crazy, huh? But, hoenstly, it was fantastic. It was served family style so everyone wasn't getting up and down to go to a buffet the entire time. We started with an antipasto course. Then there was a salad course and we choose two salads off their main manu. Then came the main course, you had a combination of a traditional Thanksgiving meal and also some of their Italian dishes. We had turkey, ham, salmon, four cheese ravioli, and lasagna. On the side, they had mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, a great corn casserole, green bean casserole, dressing, and a cranberry relish. Then there was dessert where we chose two desserts off their standard dessert menu and they had also added pumpkin pie as a choice. The price was I think $30pp and it was family style, all-you-can-eat. We even took home leftovers! It was the best thing ever - no one had to cook or clean, we had a great meal, and the price was definitely right. We're planning to do it again this year.

We had wonderful Thanksgiving meals at the Rusty Scupper in the Inner Harbor two years in a row, but they were not buffet style.
We had a good Thanksgiving buffet at the Marriott Hunt Valley Inn one year. There was a huge selection of food.
We went to the Charleston Restaurant one year. Great food, but they really seemed to be rushing us out the door, and we are fast eaters to begin with. It seemed like we were in and out the door in under 45 minutes.
