Where to Order a Thanksgiving Dinner To Go in Greater Lowell

All dinners must be ordered in advance -- check the listings for details!

By Barbara Evangelista, Publisher November 3, 2021

Updated for 2021 

This year, turn the Thanksgiving cooking over to a local chef so that you can relax and enjoy the holiday!  We've scoured the Greater Lowell area and found quite a few restaurants, caterers and stores that are providing prepared Thanksgiving dinners. 

Note that all of these Thanksgiving dinner options MUST be ordered well in advance!  Please see each listing for the "order by" date.  Some required pick up on Wednesday November 24, while a few are open on Thanksgiving Day.

Staffing is a huge issue at local restaurants so some places that normally offer a Thanksgiving meal may be unable to do so this year, or may have a limited number of meals available.  Please be kind 🤗
