Thanksgiving on 30A
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite weeks on 30A. If you plan to celebrate Turkey Day at the beach, but would rather sip mimosas than cook all morning, here’s a list of all of your dine-in and take out options.
Dine In 🍽
The Pearl at Rosemary Beach will be celebrating the special day with an all-day Thanksgiving Buffet. Brunch will be served at three seatings — 11 a.m, 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. — in The Pearl’s ballroom with wine available for purchase. It includes a full buffet of traditional holiday fare, with a touch of The Pearl Hotel’s signature old world Spanish, Portuguese and French influences: Roasted Turkey with Turkey Pan gravy, Candied Sweet Potatoes with house-made bourbon marshmallow, traditional whipped potatoes and of course pumpkin and pecan pies!
Fish Out of Water is offering their turkey plate special featuring sliced turkey breast, scorched sweet potato mash, cornbread dressing, giblet gravy, orange-cranberry sauce, and your choice of pie slice.
