Default Pinnacle Grill

You know your cruise is getting close when you make reservations for dinner.

On the HAL site there is little discussion of what is actually on the menu.
Does anyone have a copy to post?
Or can someone provide a little more detail about what is served?

I don't have a copy to post, but some of the entrees are
Filet mignon - large and small. The small is too much for me to eat.
Grilled lamb chops, huge porterhouse steak, grilled halibut, grilled scampi and a couple of other items.

If you can wait until after we return home from our Xmas cruise, then I'll be sure to bring a menu with me.

Ah, found this on HAL's web site


Pinnacle Grill

Beautifully appointed alternative-dining venues on all Holland America Line ships, the Pinnacle Grill is ideal for a romantic dinner for two or an elegant dining spot for a group celebration. Featuring Pacific Northwest specialties including selected cuts of Sterling Silver beef and superb seafood items, as well as carefully selected wines from renowned Pacific Northwest vineyards, expect a delicious experience. The Pinnacle Grill also introduced 21 new menu items comprising a week’s cycle of daily appetizers, entrées and desserts. The trio is designed to complement one another and the Pacific Northwest–inspired cuisine currently served. The Pinnacle Grill also features distinctive Bvlgari china, Frette linens and elegant Riedel stemware.

Open for dinner only by reservation, guests pay a modest surcharge of $30 per person for dinner and $15 for lunch.

Entrees may include Pan-Seared Rosemary Chicken with Cranberry Chutney, Grilled Sea Scallops with Marjoram Pomodoro Coulis, served on curried Hollandaise spinach with fried capers, or Lamb Rack Chops with Drizzled Mint Sauce. Also available are premium “Sterling Silver? hand-selected cuts of beef unsurpassed in tenderness and taste, including bone-in Delmonico rib-eye steak, center-cut Porterhouse steak and two sizes of filet mignon. Side dishes will feature such choices as Washington Spuds au Gratin, Grilled Asparagus avec Béarnaise and Sautéed Button Mushrooms. Delectable desserts, featuring Pacific Northwest ingredients include Warm Grand Marnier Chocolate Volcano Cake, Lemon Berry Angel Shortcake, and Not-so-Classic Baked Alaska.


They forgot to list Creme Carmel under desserts. My favourite.

This is just a hint, I wish I had when we cruised the Zuiderdam. Sadly, in the dr, our service was less than stellar, so when we dined in the Pinnacle, and loved it, and, then tried to book again, we couldn't. Even checking daily, there was never a cancellation!

So what I would do is book an additional day. If you love it, you are covered. If you decide not to dine there again cancel, asap.

On the Zuiderdam, the dr was very pretty..I wanted them to ship the chairs home to me!

You have a great time and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

You can check out the menu just outside the Pinnacle Grill when you go down to make your reservation. Do it as soon as you can after you get on board as it does fill up quickly as Trip said.

Fortunately, we already have a reservation for the 26th. 24th and 25th are booked...no matter because I intend to park my butt in the sports bar watching football on ESPN on those "at sea" days.
