Thanksgiving Dinner in Merrimack Valley or North of Boston

I'm Looking for a place that serves Thanksgiving Dinner. The list seems to be shorter this year for the Methuen area and points north. We will have a couple of older diners, so I would like to keep the traveling to a minimum. Have already noted that On the Bone of Andover will be serving a buffet with three seatings. Buono Bistro of North Andover advised us to check back in a week. They served last year, but this does not sound too promising. Ten Center Street in Newburyport also has a menu, but that is a little far for us. Any places in the Valley or towards the Lowell area or even southern NH (Salem, Derry) that you know of? Much appreciated!

    I have been checking for you. Nothing new :( There are so few restaurants open this year for Thanksgiving. I have heard that Kittys in Reading is open but it is not on their website. I would call Burtons in North Andover to be sure.. I really like them and if it is open, it will not be a buffet. Good luck and Happy Holidays!

      A little south of the Merrimack Valley...but you might check out Angelica's on Rte. 114 in Middleton. They usually put out quite a Thanksgiving spread and I think you can choose between a sit down dinner or the buffet. An added bonus is that the elderly really seem to LOVE this place. I've been here a few times for dinner and dinner shows and have not been disappointed.

        I would suggest the Stonehedge Inn in Tyngsboro. I checked their web site and they are taking reservations for Thanksgiving Day. The Stonehdge is a beautiful inn and rather upscale but I think it would be a perfect place for a family dinner on a special day. I'm sure the older folks in your party would love it.

            Thanks for the suggestions ParisLady. Didn't find anything on the Conference Centers website, but will certainly scour out the Lowell area.

              You are so correct in that not so many restaurants doing Thanksgiving this year. I know it is hard to take an elderly person to a buffet and several multiplies that. I am not sure if this is too far, but Warrens Lobster House in Kittery is doing a huge meal on Thanksgiving...check out their website: www.warrenslobsterhouse.com. They have valet parking and have a lot of senior clientelle. Nothing in Andover and Lowell that I am aware of...good luck. One more thought...The Lowell Inn and Conference Center???

                Thanks for the replies. Just did a couple of searches. Maria's in Haverhill looks promising:

                    just did a quick search, Burton's Grille in North Andover seems to be accepting reservations on the website, for Nov. 28.
