Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving in Newport

People Enjoying a Thanksgiving MealIt’s time to enjoy the holiday season in Rhode Island. Some of us thoroughly enjoy shopping, preparing ingredients, baking, cooking, and serving a traditional Thanksgiving meal at home to our loved ones. Some of us thoroughly enjoy ordering Thanksgiving take out meals lovingly prepared by world-class kitchen staff from local Newport restaurants to serve our holiday guests in the comfort of our homes. And some of us enjoy being properly pampered, dressed in our holiday finery, and sitting down at an exquisitely prepared table at one of our favorite restaurants for the Thanksgiving feast. 

There are some truly exceptional restaurants open on Thanksgiving in Newport RI in 2022. But please don’t think it inappropriate to make a dining reservation AND order a 12-14 lb Hickory Smoked Whole Turkey from the à la carte menu. There will be many delicious turkey sandwiches to enjoy at home with your guests throughout the holiday week if you plan accordingly!
