Black Bass Hotel
The Black Bass Hotel was built in the 1740’s and was a haven for river travelers, traders and sportsmen. The hotel once turned away George Washington, was victim to a massive fire, and has since hosted a list of celebrities and famous names. Although the hotel’s history is extensive, one thing has not changed – it’s rich tradition of fine dining and warm hospitality. This Thanksgiving, dinner will be served from 12pm – 8pm and will offer a 7-course prix-fixe menu that includes a main course and dessert buffet for $75 per person. You’ll start the night off with appetizers that, among other things, include a smoked salmon mousse, beef consommé, and rock shrimp with mussels in a fish veloute. Next you will be served a palate cleanser of cranberry sorbet before the main course buffet! Top the night off with one of the incredibly decadent desserts, and some coffee or tea.

Serve your family a local farm, fresh turkey dinner from one of these local farms:
The Griggstown Quail Farm offers two types of turkeys for the Thanksgiving and Holiday season. The white turkey is a traditional breed that most of us are accustomed to. The Red Bourbon turkey is a heritage bird that has not been crossbred to enhance its size. The Red Bourbon takes longer to grow and is a smaller, leaner bird with darker meat, but there is still enough white meat to satisfy everyone. Despite its leaner disposition, the Red Bourbon turkey does not have a gamy taste, but does, in some inexplicable way, taste better. All turkeys are raised outside and are truly free-range birds.
For your convenience, we also do some of the work for you if you would like. Brined and oven-ready birds are available. Brining means that we soak the turkey for 24 hours in a spice, salt and sugar solution. This adds moisture and flavor to the bird when it is cooked. We also take that brined bird and stuff it with garlic and herbs, season it, and provide a roasting pan for you. This makes it oven ready. All you have to do is remove the turkey from the bag, place in the pan and into the oven. It’s that easy.
