Perhaps the most popular specialty dining restaurant on Norwegian Cruise Line is the beloved Cagney’s Steakhouse.
Cagney’s Steakhouse on NCL is a dining destination that is a must-visit for foodies at sea and steak connoisseurs alike. This upscale specialty dining restaurant on Norwegian cruise ships offers a sophisticated atmosphere, complete with dark wood furnishings, plush seating, and an elegant ambiance that is the perfect backdrop for an amazing meal.
On most ships, Cagney’s Steakhouse replicates an old-world, beautiful steakhouse you would find in major cities like Chicago, New York, Dallas, etc.
One of our favorite tips is that Cagney’s (usually shared with Moderno) has a bar within the restaurant on some ships. This bar is usually one of the best on the ship and is never crowded!
The menu is centered around premium cuts of meat, expertly grilled to perfection and served with an array of gourmet sides and sauces. For those who prefer a lighter meal, there are plenty of options on the menu that cater to their tastes. From succulent seafood dishes to crisp salads and savory sides, there is something to suit every palate.
Passengers generally rave about impeccable service and attention to detail, with knowledgeable servers and wine sommeliers who are passionate about food and eager to recommend the perfect pairing.
Cagney’s Steakhouse NCL menu
What does Cagney’s on NCL Cost?
Steaks now start at about $30 and appetizers can’t be had for less than $10 (including a mandatory 20% service charge. Cagney’s is an a la carte specialty dining restaurant so unlike other Norwegian Cruise Line restaurants that have a flat cover charge, you’ll be paying per item at Cagney’s. However, if you have a dining package, it can be used and is a good value, as NCL has raised prices considerably in recent years. ).

Cagney’s Steakhouse Wine Menu With Prices

Is Cagney’s Steakhouse Worth It?
Comparing food quality and prices to a land-based steakhouse, Cagney’s is definitely worth it. If you have a dining package, it’s a no-brainer! We think this is one of the best values for the dining package credit, even with a few items that have surcharges (i.e. Tomahawk or lobster tail).
Does Cagney’s Have a Dress Code?
Norwegian’s official policy is no swimwear in restaurants, but there is no specific dress code for Cagney’s. You’ll see everything from men in suits to guys wearing dress shorts. Most people in the dining room are usually seen wearing jeans or slacks with a collared shirt.
Our tips for Dining at Cagney’s Steakhouse on Norwegian Cruise Line
- The steaks are where it’s at. Stick with the filet mignon and you can’t go wrong.
- If you’re considering prime rib, skip it. It’s often served at the buffet or during a special dining night in the main dining rooms, and having tried the prime rib at Cagney’s, it’s not really much better.
- The cream spinach side dish is often watery – try something else
- The Oysters Rockefeller are the biggest disappointment in Cagney’s. There are 3 shriveled-up dry pucks that they sadly overcook and call Oysters Rockefeller – Definitely choose any other starter! (The lettuce wedge is a favorite and consistent)
- For chocolate lovers, the 7 layer cake is a MUST
- MOST IMPORTANT: Always make a reservation right when you get on board. Prime dining hours fill up fast for most voyages.
