Nice meal at Marriott

We really enjoyed the atmosphere and meal at the Royal Grille. The Ribeye Wagyu $39 was very good but the highlight was the Short Rib $38. It was super tender and fell off the bone. Reminder: Most restaurants in St Kitts already add a 12.5% service fee so tip accordingly.

Steaks were lovely, and nice to be able to pick individual side dishes - the mac n cheese was surprisingly delicious!! Creamed spinach also excellent. Service was mediocre and setting/decor nothing special.

I'm having a really hard time understanding the negative reviews, because our experience here FAR exceeded almost every other place on the island. Some reviews say the place is expensive, but it most certainly is NOT! The prices are FAR less than what you would expect at a Morton's or Ruth's Chris, and in line with moderate to nice steakhouses... More

Best steak I've eaten in about 15 years! Melt in your mouth! Staff is very attentive and always ensuring you have everything you need.

The Royal Grill Steakhouse was ok. It is trying to be a high-end, city, steakhouse, so it has an overall formal/stuffy feel. Don’t worry; they have the high-end pricing down as the least expensive steak is about $40. Everything is a la carte, and the sides are quite small for the price.

We went for New Year's Eve. My petite fillet was dry and seriously overpriced ($36, I believe). No baked potatoes, only mashed available. The creamed spinach was NOT what I expected (this was wilted leaves swimming in sauce). The staff seemed unconcerned with us and the atmosphere was lacking. Would not go back. Ever.

On the last night of our trip we though we would check out the steak house. The atmosphere was not at all what I would expect from a resort steakhouse. The petite filet however was good.

My husband and kids love steak and found the steaks here quite good. Ceasar salad is good and big. Crab cakes are mustardy and spicy.
