Roy's is always a reliable place for a great meal. I do find it a bit too pricey as a seafood meal here costs about the same as Mama's Fish House in Maui. A good full meal with an appetizer, desert and cocktails will run you about $100 each. Don't let that prevent you from trying it because everything is... More

Stopped in for a cocktail and apps. The mango mojito was so bad...the mint was floating uncrushed in the glass. Watered down drinks. For a great drink, good price and gorgeous setting we left for Blue Ember at the Omni. No comparison.

The service was amazing and the food was great. However, the samosas, in puff pastry, were quite greasy.

We haven't been to Roy's in sometime, it was time. We decided to go for Happy Hour and eat at the bar. Started with a fantastic welcome by the hostess and then the bartender and manager. Super friendly...... A nice feature. We ordered 2, 1988 martini's, the house special. Made with Lechi liquor, grapefruit and citrus vodkas. Always so easy... More

This restaurant should be what every restaurant strives for. The service was impeccable, food was absolutely delicious. I can highly recommend the "Butterfish" & "pineapple desert". We lucked out by visiting on a Monday night, they had a special which included choice of any appetizer, main, & desert for only $36.95.

This one one of my favorite meals ever!!! The Auntie Lei's Aloha Roll was insane!! Out of this world, this was possibly the best sushi roll I have ever had. That is a lot to say coming from Vancouver, land of the best sushi or at least 2nd best sushi in the world. The flavors were so good together. I... More

We both ordered Mojitos, but were disappointed. We thought we had ordered the Mango Mojito. Those glasses were swept away and were replaced by Mango Mojitos. And we weren't charged. Little did we know, Roy's was having a Monday night special: $36 for an appetizer, entrée and dessert. What a "no brainer!" We ordered the Canoe appetizer (for two) which... More

One of the best if not the best Roy's I've ever dined at. Food is always very good and service was outstanding. The manager even came to our table to make sure we were enjoying our meal. The Trio meals are exceptional, giving you an opportunity to taste several sea foods on one plate. The pineapple upside down cake was... More

The price is high, but the food is out of this world good. They have free valet parking. The service is great, the atmosphere is great. If you don't mind paying for really great food try Roy's. We will go again on our next trip to area.
