Generally, the steakhouse's dark woods are offset with jewel-toned carpeting and tan accents in addition to white tablecloths, all of which emphasize the restaurant's upscale feel.
The restaurant has a smart casual dress code that discourages guests from wearing jeans -- and wait service is part of the experience.
Both lunch and dinner are served at Chops, and both vegetarians and vegans alike may want to keep their distance. The dinner menu includes several cuts of steak, as well as lamb, fish, pork and chicken dishes. Additionally, diners choose from a selection of appetizers like shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, lobster bisque and several salads.
Sides include a yummy variety of veggies, such as baked and mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and steamed asparagus. Dessert and a selection of sauces are also included in the cover charge.
The lunch menu offers a trimmed down selection of appetizers, entrees and sides, as well as solely two dessert options. Wine lists are available as well, but like in nearly all other areas of cruise ships, alcohol costs extra.
Reservations for dinner are highly recommended as this popular restaurant can be booked out quickly.
Chops Grille has a fixed price per person, which is typically lower for lunch than it is for dinner. These fixed prices also slightly differ on certain classes of Royal ships.
An 18% gratuity is often automatically added to meals as well, but this is dependent upon specific ports and itineraries.
