So F***ing good!

I had the most monster steak with truffled mac and cheese on the side. It was absolutely to die for. The steak was monstrous and so delicious. The drinks were delicious and creative (try the jalapeno mojito) and the staff gave the business a very high class feel. I felt like a rockstar eating here... read more

I sat I the bar and ordered the Seared Ahi and the ribs appetizer in the bar. The Ahi was incredible! The ribs appetizer was heavily seasoned and just ok. The house Cabernet was just worth the $8.00. I did have a glass of the Justin Cabernet and it was really good but, spendy. Stick with the seafood and you... More

Have tried Roy's Maui, Honolulu, SF, San Diego, and Anaheim. Each one is different! All excellent chefs. Anaheim is a bit noisy, but not excessive. Excellent fresh food nicely plated and served. Tables far enough apart for privacy even though the place is always packed. Make reservation. Great fish. Excellent appetizers. Super desserts. We go again and again and again...

I went for a walk to see what my dinner options were, and Roy's caught my eye - I'm usually game for trying something new, and I have never had Hawaiian Fusion food before. I walked in wanting to look at a menu. One of the servers held the door open and greeted me - very nice touch, especially when... More

I ate here recently on a business trip. Everyone's food was excellent. The service was very slow for a nicer restaurant. It took forever to get orders entered, drinks brought out, etc. I had the calamari salad - and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten. For my entree, I had the macadamia nut crusted mahi...

Roy's can be a hit or miss... I often have a good experience at Roy's, but this time it was not that great. Just be aware of misleading menu item titles and you should be fine; as food offerings are not as they seem on the menu. If you're into fusion food, this is the place to be... If you're... More

I have eaten at Roy's restaurants on both US coasts, and they have always been excellent. The seafood is fresh and imaginatively prepared. The ambience is always great, and the service never disappoints. I do not think that you can go wrong with a meal at Roy's.

We went to a show at the Anaheim Convention Center for several days and walked over to Roy's from our hotel. This was just a terrific experience -- the staff was very nice, the food was excellent and the place was very welcoming.

Food was fine...but service incredibly slow. Went for work dinner and everyone just wanted to walk out after three hours. Expect much more from this place.

I usually look for the best in all establishments but I would have to say my visit with a group of seven other guest was average. The service was fairly good. Drink orders were spot on. The potsticker appetizer is very salty and was tough. I had sushi and it was good. The roll was enormous I couldn't finish it... More
