First visit to Roy's while visiting the area. Atmosphere and decor was very nice visually and made for a warm and peaceful atmosphere. Wait staff was knowledgeable about menu and were quite attentive the whole time. The calamari was delicious and our entrees were as well however were somewhat too salty which is common in most all restaurants. Overall it... More

Typically I do not like chain Restaurants, but I was in Jacksonville over the weekend and thought I would give Roy's a try. I read the reviews and they were mixed. But, feeling adventurous off I went. I thought I was in trouble when the hostess could not discuss the menu options with me. She said my waiter could answer... More

If you love the taste of well prepared food, then you must come to Roy's. The service is friendly and fast yet you never feel rushed. The food is fantastic!!! As an appetizer I had a sushi roll, Lakanilau, that had beef and asparagus. It exploded with flavor. The filet and red dragon shrimp entrée was equally full of flavor.... More

Hawaiian Fusion with many interesting choices, superb wine list and excellent service make this a place that we will return to many times again. Very able to handle our large party of 13.

What can I say about Roy's. It's a chain. That's not a bad thing. That means they have systems and training in place to make sure my experience remains consistent and exactly what I'm looking for every time. And sometimes that's exactly what we want. Of course the Jacksonville Beach location has it's own executive chef, with it's own flair,... More

Last time we ate at this location was about a year ago. Not because we had a bad experience, but there are many other restaurants serving food at or above the level of Roy's. Not sure why this chain doesn't offer some type of carb at the table. Bread, flat bread crackers, bread sticks? Anything would be great. The prices... More
