The service charge is supposed to be your tip but most tip extra because the service most of the time is far superior to what you will get elsewhere.
The reason there is a service charge on all specialty restaurants is for crowd control. Imagine if there was no charge, people would be eating in there 7 nights on a 7 night cruise and others would never get the chance. It's just enough money charged so that most cruisers will eat there once during their cruise.
