Thanksgiving on Grand Cayman
Halloween is over, and November has begun! We’re putting away our jack o’ lanterns and taking down the spooky decorations, which can only mean one thing. Football is on, families are getting together, and the cookbooks are being dusted off: Thanksgiving is just around the corner!
For our guests, though, it means something a little more special than usual: Thanksgiving on Grand Cayman! There’s no need to cook (unless you’d like to!) when you’re spending your holiday on-island. Bringing the whole family together for sun, surf and celebration is a snap with our Grand Cayman Thanksgiving guide.
The Rum Point Club
For many of our guests in Rum Point/Cayman Kai, nothing beats the convenience of the Rum Point Club! This always excellent eatery is offering a traditional Thanksgiving feast featuring roast turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, and much more! Reservations are always recommended–don’t miss out!
Tukka is a perennial favorite on Grand Cayman’s East End, and owner/chef Ron Hargrave never fails to impress any time of year! Their two-course set Thanksgiving menu features a classic roast turkey entree and mouthwatering appetizers or dessert. For reservations, or to take a gander at their (excellent) regular menu, check out their website:
Captain G at The Lighthouse serves up incredible cuisine and impeccable service in the East End–in a restaurant boasting a wonderful outdoor dining space. Their Thanksgiving menu features pumpkin soup, turkey, ham (with all the trimmings, of course) and pecan pie. For reservations visit their website (head’s up: the food is amazing, and his website is well worth a gander, but it autoplays sound):
An excellent Caribbean family eatery, Chicken Chicken in Seven Mile Beach offers excellent eats all year round. For Thanksgiving, they do an incredible family-style turkey dinner with all the sides for pickup. If you’re going to eat in, this is probably your best bet!
