Great food in a comfortable atmosphere

Stopped in here for dinner and we were pleased as always. The staff is attentive without being overly so. And, the food is always perfect. While pricing is on the upper end, the product is worth it. Their price fixed dining options are usually a good deal. The normally prepared dished have an... read more

My wife and I went to Roy's last night (Feb-6-2016) to celebrate our 45th anniversary. This was our first visit to Roy's. My brother and his wife joined us. We had a wonderful dinner and the service was top shelf. I called in advance for reservations after trying to make a reservation on line. When making the reservation they asked... More

The noise level was so loud that it was difficult to hear the person I was sitting with. There was a group of ladies that had obviously been "over-served" whose conversation carried throughout the restaurant. Asked the waiter if it was possible to tone them down and he said he had already asked them twice to hold down the noise.... More

My parents wanted to take me out for a unique experience to Jacksonville Beach (I'm from the Pacific Northwest), and we certainly found it! Roy's has a Caribbean/Hawaiian/Asian fusion menu, with a creative cocktail menu. The waitstaff was incredibly friendly and the service was wonderful too! One thing, this place is more like $$$$$ versus $$ listed on the TripAdvisor... More

I actually crave their sushi especially the tuna but this is a great spot for dinner or for happy hour ... The wait staff and bar staff are amazing & the food & drinks cant be beat ... They are known for their pineapple martinis but I tend to stick to their great wine list😄

Roy's at the south end of Jacksonville Beach is expensive and eclectic. A nice experience overall. For my taste, I'm glad that we tried it once. Nothing to complain about. Food and service were well above average. I realized that I prefer a different cuisine. I am comfortable recommending Roy's to anyone a little adventurous and wanting something different from...
