1. Portside BBQ®

If you’re a fan of great barbecue, this new specialty restaurant should be right up your alley. The menu here is all about tasty meat cooked low and slow — like savory brisket and pulled pork, tender chicken, beef ribs, turkey legs, and burnt ends. The sides are just as incredible as the mains, too. Choose from home-style favorites like warm melt-in-your-mouth cornbread and creamy mac and cheese. End your meal on a sweet note with delicious desserts like the Banana Dream pudding and the Chocolate Brookie, a brownie-cookie mashup that is the definition of decadence.


2. Giovanni's Table

Craving some delicious Italian eats? Head to Giovanni’s Table, where you’ll find hearty homemade pastas and italian-inspired entrees — like classic baked lasagna and melanzane alla parmigiana. The hand-tossed pizzas are also worth trying — they’re made to order using fresh ingredients and served straight from the oven. If you love great wine, you’ll find plenty of top-rated labels on the list, from flavorful chiantis to full-bodied nero d’Avolas. Looking for a little direction? Just ask a somm on staff for a delicious suggestion to pair with your meal.


3. Chops Grille

For a classic steakhouse experience, look no further than Chops Grille onboard Oasis of the Seas. This specialty restaurant has been a staple across the fleet for over a decade, and once you try their tender hand-cut steaks, you’ll see why. The chefs here know just how to prepare prime meat, but that’s not all you can look forward at this fan-favorite spot — there’s also Maine lobster, delicious roast chicken, and flavorful grilled branzino paired with shareable sides and a remarkable wine list.


4. El Loco Fresh

You’ll find some of the best poolside eats onboard Oasis of the Seas at El Loco Fresh. One of the ship’s most popular Amplified additions, this complimentary fast-casual favorite serves crazy good authentic Mexican eats, like cheesy quesadillas, filling tacos, creamy guacamole, tasty sauces and more. There’s even a menu that spotlights breakfast burritos and quesadillas in the morning, in case you want to start your day with fresh Mexican goodness.


5. Sorrento’s Pizza

Sometimes, nothing hits the spot like a great slice of pizza. That’s where Sorrento’s comes in. Open all day and late into the night, this complimentary Royal Caribbean mainstay is known for dishing up perfection by the slice. Choose between classic pies, like cheese and Margherita. Or opt for something a little more creative, like the Carnivore, which comes piled high with meat, or the bacon-, pineapple- and BBQ-infused Caribbean Dream.


6. Johnny Rockets

A great place to refuel in between adventures onboard Oasis of the Seas is Johnny Rockets, home to tasty golden fries, juicy burgers loaded with all your favorite toppings, and decadent hand-spun shakes that will satisfy any sweet tooth. You can enjoy your meal in house surrounded by retro vibes, or take it to go as you race from one onboard thrill to another. Guests age 21 and older should ask about the adult shakes, served with a shot of your favorite spirit.


7. Izumi Hibachi & Sushi

Most foodies who’ve cruised will Royal Caribbean will tell you that you’ll find the best Asian food at sea at Izumi Hibachi & Sushi, one of the cruise line’s top-rated specialty restaurants and a popular dining option onboard Oasis of the Seas. Fresh sashimi, nigiri, and hand-rolled sushi steals the spotlight here, along with teppanyaki favorites prepared right at your table by a master chef.
