Thanksgiving in Rehoboth
Can't decide if we're staying in or going out. Has anyone had decent experiences with Thanksgiving dinner at the beach? Espuma, my first choice is, sadly, closed.
I'm not 100% certain, but I believe Victoria's on the Boardwalk serves Thanksgiving dinner. If so, you'll get great food and a fantastic view of the ocean.
If you're willing to take a thirty minute drive down Coastal Highway, Harpoon Hannah's (right on the Fenwick Island/Ocean City border) does a Thanksgiving dinner package each year. Make reservations early and request a table by the window overlooking the water.
I'm a long-time fan of both restaurants, although Hannah's has taken on something of a college-hangout type feel during the summer months with the Tiki bar on the outdoor deck. Nevertheless, the restaurant inside appeals to the over-30 crowd and consistently serves quality food.
Someone else suggested The Buttery in Lewes. I have gone there for the past four years for Thanksgiving. traditional menu and pretty good. They get booked up VERY quickly and will want a credit card to hold the reservations (and they do not take Amex). It is quite nice, and they always have a good selection of wine. I do think they may have their last seating at 6 or 7, tho.
If you strike out on restaurant dining, there is a new gourmet food shop/bistro at the Five Points complex in Lewes that is preparing take-out Thanksgiving dinners - turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, etc. It's in the same complex as Bad Hair Day. I saw their flyer the other day - could be good.
I wonder if Nage is serving Thanksgiving dinner? That is one of my favorite spots - don't be put off that it is in a strip mall.
