Wonder of the Seas will feature a new restaurant with southern-style cuisine, The Mason Jar Southern Restaurant & Bar. According to Royal Caribbean, the Mason Jar features a menu inspired by food from the Southern United States.
Mason Jar was one of the trademarks Royal Caribbean filed back in October 2021 that many at the time believed would become a new dining concept.
Royal Caribbean confirmed the new restaurant concept in a newsletter sent to travel agents, stating, “Enter The Mason Jar, reinventing Low Country classics, Bayou staples, and bold B”Q.”
The Mason Jar Southern Restaurant & Bar is a specialty restaurant with rustic decor, country music, and Southern classics, including baked buttermilk biscuits and jalapeno cornbread.
The new restaurant will offer comfort food, such as Creole-style Lobster ‘ n Crawfish Gumbo aGran’sn’s Fried Chicken. The brunch menu will offer breakfast dishes, including Sweet-Tooth Cinnamon Roll or southern Chicken ‘n Waffles.
If you’re feeling thirsty, you’ll love the spiked peach tea or the decadent shake made with peanut butter, banana, and bourbon. At the bar, you’ll find a collection of more than a dozen American whiskeys, along with mint julep and Mississippi Moonlight.
