A unique upscale dining experience with a Korean touch

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... read more

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.

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.

Had friends in town and wanted a nice dinner. The appetizers were fantastic - the Aloha Roll was outstanding. Orders ranged from Hibachi Salmon to Trio dinner. We were impressed with the amount of food on most plates - expected much smaller portions. The truffle, bacon mac & cheese was very flavorful. Was def very expensive... but we were expecting...

A group of us gather about once a month to enjoy Roy's HH drink and food specials. We are able to order several of each appetizer and share amongst everyone because they are so yummy and the prices are great. Have also had a meal here which was very delicious but we mostly take advantage of the HH specials. We... More

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
