Interesting menu, generally good food and portion sizes. Staff very friendly The prices are a bit too high for what it is essentially good but not exceptional cuisine. Also the acoustics are terrible and it was very very loud. We were sat inside but there's also very nice outdoor seating which I might do next time for better noise levels.

Service was pleasant. Long way in from parking lot. 10% discount they told us about for Marriott guests did not apply. Food (fresh cod) was well prepared, good wine selection. Not much to eat and pretty expensive mid-$30's for entree, $12 salad, $10 dessert, $12 glass of wine , cup of ok coffee and you are looking at $90 each... More

Great seafood selection. I like the subtle Asian influence. In addition to the regular Roy's menu each Roy's has a unique chef menu. Nice wine selection. Will definitely come here again. A little pricey, but worth it.

This location is inside the Marriott Desert Ridge and that convenience makes it a great place if you don't want to get on the road. The food is what you would expect for a chain and the staff are also well trained. Nothing overly special, just onsistent food and service.

We had a wonderful birthday celebration at this Roy's location. It is nestled inside the Marriott resort which has valet parking, but you can also park for free right after the round about as you enter (just a short three minute walk to the hotel). Service was outstanding - attentive but not intrusive. We had the "canoe" appetizer for two... More

Fresh fish in the desert is hard to find. Roy's fish is so fresh you forget your in the desert. We haven been there many times and all of the dishes are excellent. You will not be disappointed.

The food and the ambience are fabulous. We dined outdoors on the patio, just before sunset, and all 5 of us could not have been more pleased. Service is attentive, professional and personable. We started with cocktails and lobster potstickers, which left us drooling for more. By the time our entrees were served, the space heaters took off the slight... More

It was wonderful to get to eat outside in the fall especially when beautiful gardens are surrounding you. Our meal at Roy's was delicious. We ate here with another couple and enjoyed sharing appetizers and bites of our entrees. Dessert was wonderful as well!
