Great Jazz!

The menu is original with local fresh food, some of the items like the French onion soup was very salty.

Our works Xmas party was here in 2014 and we were all very impressed, so much so that we returned in the new year to eat there with friends. The service was very slow. Out of 4 meals only one was good. My food was cold. The first meal was brought out but then there was a good 15 minutes... More

Unbeleivably terrible service at this potentially great restaurant--the live music was amazing and the menu looked great but we waited for over 35 minutes for our order to be taken and it wasn't even remotely busy. Then, once the order (finally!) was taken, they came back with One of our orders and only then told us that they were out... More

This place is incredible. It has a fantastic patio, great service and a menu to drool over. The food items are unique and prepared with care and a great deal of skill and pride. We ate supper here late night and came back for breakfast after seeing the fantastic offerings on the menu. I expect this place would be hopping... More

Excited to see that the Royal was opening its doors again, a good friend of mine and I went in at 5:30pm. We were the only table dining. I ordered the ribs and he ordered the prime rib, unfortunately they didn't have in stock. So my friend ordered the curry bowl. The presentation of the plates were very disappointing and... More

I have reviewed the Royal before and go there at least a couple times a month. They have incredible music and great dancing. The crowd is a bit older which is an attraction for me. In Nelson it's easy to find great food, and the Royal is no exception to excellent food. Can't go wrong with anything on their menus,... More

In the past this place was a dive but the new owners have succeeded in making this my favourite bar and restuarant. They pride themselves in the food they prepare. Have not had a bad meal there.

The new Royal on Baker has amazing food in a great atmosphere! The new owner has done a wonderful job turning the place in to the new hot spot.
