Due to the recent changes in Covid-19 guidelines made by the governor on Wednesday, November 11, the demand for Thanksgiving Family meals was higher than anticipated. We have pushed the limits of our kitchen to its fullest to provide as many Ocean Piners as possible with the ability to stay at home and enjoy a Turkey Dinner with their families. We are sorry we were not able to accommodate everyone's request. -Matt Ortt Companies.
In an effort to help local families bring the holiday safely to their dinner tables, the Ocean Pines Yacht Club announced plans for special Thanksgiving Family Meals, available for delivery or carryout on Nov. 26.
Since taking over operations at the Yacht Club two years ago, the Matt Ortt Companies have made holiday dining-out into a popular tradition in the community. Perhaps the most well received was the annual Thanksgiving buffet that each year drew hundreds of people.
This year, like many things because of the COVID-19 pandemic, plans had to be changed.
“Family is so important to us and we know how important having that traditional, family Thanksgiving dinner is to everyone in Ocean Pines,” Ralph DeAngelus, cofounder of the Matt Ortt Companies, said. “Normally, we would have everyone come to the Yacht Club and sit down with a big table full of family and friends. This year, we felt that bringing that experience to your home was the next best thing.”
Each Thanksgiving Family Meal will feed four people and cost $50, plus tax. Half portions will not be offered.
Meals will be available for both carryout and delivery from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Orders must be placed in advance, by Monday, Nov. 23.
Each Thanksgiving Family Meal will include:
Choice of salad (Caesar or garden)
Roasted white and dark meat turkey
Creamy mashed potatoes
Glazed sweet potatoes
Fall vegetable medley
One whole pumpkin pie
There is no limit to the amount of family meals that can be ordered per household. Beer and wine specials will also be available for pickup and delivery.
“All of us at the Yacht Club will miss seeing everyone at the Yacht Club on Thanksgiving Day. The Ocean Pines public has always been so supportive of us,” DeAngelus said. “We feel like these great homecooked meals with huge portions, brought to your doorstep or available for pickup, will go a long way in keeping that holiday spirit alive.”
