We went in to try and enjoyed the appetizers and great drinks. The atmosphere was sophisticated without being stuffy. Good service too. We enjoyed it! Will def go back!

It's good but definitely not Jax Bch's best . IF I could only have one meal in Jax Bch, this place would not be it. I really do like the calamari and fish. I haven't been impressed with a steak.

Overpriced and small portions. Had the chicken Caesar salad for $26 and there was only a few pieces of salad and my partner had the ribs which were small and cold on the edges. The waiter and hostess were pleasant but still not worth it.

When we made our reservation we were thinking it was a steak house like Ruth's Chris or Morton's. It is much more than this. The menu has a number of sushi type appetizers, Had called a Sunrise which was wonderful. Wife had Lobster Bisque which was also outstanding. We both had a Rib steak, which was also great. For desert... More

North Florida has many good places to eat - this one may be one of the best. Don't let the 'Hawaiian' label fool you, the menu selection is varied and spectacular. First is the 'Hawaiian' Martini - the pineapple is the only part from Hawaii (it's infused with Rum, Vanilla and Vodka) the rest is a blend of the perfect... More

Excellent staff, my husband let them know it was my birthday and the menu had my name on it. Simple thing, but sweet. The food was excellent! Fish very fresh with interesting sauce.

I have been to many Roy's and the one in Jacksonville Beach is my favorite because it is more casual and so close to beach hotels. The food has always been outstanding and because it is close to TPC Sawgrass, and Ponte Vedra you might see some celebrities on a visit. They have the best appetizers and my favorite entrée... More

I have been to Roy's many times and have never had a bad meal; never even a mediocre meal. Their fish dishes are to die for and their sauces are exquisite. The best part is the chocolate souffle... Additionally, the wait staff is always happy and willing to help.
