Thanksgiving comes in 2nd place when it comes to my favorite time of the year in Cape May (Christmas being #1, duh). However, when it comes to dining it is #1 in my tummy that’s for sure. Below I have listed my favorite restaurants that offer Thanksgiving dinner options for you and your loved ones who simply don’t feel like cooking!
