Guy Fieri’s Restaurant to Debut Aboard the New Carnival Horizon in 2018

Carnival Horizon

Chef and television star Guy Fieri will introduce his new restaurant aboard the Carnival Horizon when it debuts in spring 2018.

The new 138-seat venue will be named “Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse | Brewhouse,” and will combine authentic barbecue and traditional sides with a selection of craft beers brewed on board at a brewery located within the restaurant.

The announcement will officially be made by Fieri at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas during the “Carnival’s BBQ Challenge with Guy Fieri” event, during which kids from the local 4H Club are tasked to come up with unique barbecue recipes inspired by Guy's Pig & Anchor. The three finalists will each receive a free cruise and Carnival will make a $20,000 donation to the 4H Club of Texas.

"I'm excited about launching my newest shipboard eatery at Carnival," said Fieri in a written release. "I know what it takes to make real-deal barbecue – quality meats smoked 'low and slow' and top-notch sides using the freshest ingredients. And when you combine down-home barbecue with a cold beer brewed right on board, you have a truly out of bounds experience."

The introduction of Guy’s Pig & Anchor marks a continued partnership between Fieri and Carnival Cruise Line, as the food network personality’s burger joints are already featured on 19 of Carnival’s ships.

"Guy has been a great partner for the past six years and his new Guy's Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse|Brewhouse aboard the new Carnival Horizon is the perfect expansion of our partnership,” said Greg Poplewko, Carnival’s director of specialty dining.

The new eatery will offer menu items like slow-smoked brisket, Memphis-style baby back ribs, seasoned grilled chicken, pulled pork, and cedar-smoked salmon with an apricot glaze.

Guy’s Pig & Anchor will be open from 5 p.m. until late every night of the cruise, with menu items offered on an a la carte basis and live music nightly. Plus, the restaurant will have a free-of-charge self-service BBQ lunch buffet from noon to 2:30 p.m.
