Updated for 2022

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 due to turkey shortage some locations will not offer turkey with their Thanksgiving offerings. 

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 23, while a few are open on Thanksgiving Day.
