Skip the Cooking and Celebrate Thanksgiving With Savory Dishes at Sanibel Restaurants

Enjoy a Traditional Meal With a Florida Twist on a Sunset Dinner Cruise

FORT MYERS, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 18, 2011) - If last year's wishbone had you hoping for a sunny South Florida holiday, this year you can have your turkey -- and eat it, too. Guests at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa, among Captiva Island, FL hotels, can enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings.

At the Tarpon House, one of the best Sanibel Island restaurants, our special Thanksgiving menu starts with a variety of appetizing items, including corn chowder, autumnal vegetable succotash salad, fingerling potato salad and assorted bakery breads. For the main event, choose from traditional roasted turkey, deep-fried Southern turkey, garlic-studded leg of lamb or honey-roasted ham. Of course, man cannot survive on meat alone. Sides include sweet potato puree; sausage, green apple and sage stuffing; and a medley of vegetables such as green beans, carrots and zucchini. And, if you've still got room left over, choose from three types of cake (red velvet, carrot and Extreme Madness); seven types of pie (everything from pumpkin and apple to Kentucky bourbon pecan and sugar-free cherry) and other sweet treats. The Thanksgiving buffet at the Tarpon house is open from 12 to 9pm for $50 per adult, $30 for kids 12 and under, and free for ages 4 and under.

If you're staying at one of the hotels near Marco Island, FL, and looking to celebrate Thanksgiving with a Florida twist, make a reservation for one of our Sanibel Harbour Princess dinner cruises. Set sail on the beautiful waters, taking in the sunshine as you make your way through a delicious buffet. Items include braised Florida grouper, Yukon gold whipped potatoes, winter spice-rubbed roasted turkey, a variety of salads, giblet gravy and a selection of decadent desserts. Cruise times are 1 to 3pm or 5:30 to 7:30pm, and cost $78 adults, $35.50 kids 12 and under, and free for kids 4 and under. Cruise prices include tax and gratuity.
