I knew I would have to cobble together some kind of vegetarian meal here, so my options at Roy's will always be limited. Still, the service was mostly speedy (except when we actually needed the check to get to another commitment), and the food and drinks are consistently good.

It was a pleasant setting with good service, but the fish was just OK. Had been to Roy's in Maui and enjoyed it, but this outpost does not compare favorably.

We had a great experience.visiting Roy's for Happy Hour. Each appetizer was beautifully presented and there is a wide variety of excellent wines and speciality drinks. The service was terrific and all of the servers have good knowledge about the wines offered. This is a perfect way to start an evening of Theatre. Suggest getting there early to ensure a... More

We went to Roy's last week in Ranch Mirage for the first time. We have eaten at Roy's in Hawaii, in the Pebble area and Arizona in the past and always enjoyed our meals, particularly Roy's in Waikiki. This time however we were very disappointed. I ordered grilled salmon which was very dry served with overly pickled vegetables , our... More

Awesome hospitality! Loved the canoe for two. The lobster, shrimp and crab cake was fabulous. The bread pudding was the best i have ever had, and not what I would normally order

Decided to splurge for our anniversary. Snapper Entree and Red Dragon Shrimp were beautifully presented and full of flavor. Waiter surprised us with a photo and dessert with a lit candle. Lots of fun and good memories. Good experience.

Service: upon arrival, host was taking orders and we had to speak to him to get his attention, couldn' find reservation, then admitted he was looking on wrong day! Waiter, David, was very friendly and attentive. Food was a mixed bag: my dish consisted of undercooked lobster, lukewarm crab cake and cold shrimp, while my husband's food was hot and... More
