We were excited to be here again after about 6 years, and we got great service, but the fried oysters were like rocks and we had to pay an up charge for them on a combo plate. When we were paying and I told the cashier the oysters were un consumable, he smiled and said "oh, well". We won't be... More

We have been going to Roy's for over 20 years. The first trywas for lunch--fried mullet, yummy and the greatest potato salad ever. We became Steinhatchee visitors on a regular basis and always included at least one dinner at Roy's. We always had a container with leftovers and my family is made up of appetites that do us all proud.... More

I have been to Roy's 4 or 5 times since my last review. The quality and service has made a positive turn and back to what you would expect from a good seafood restaurant

This diner-style restaurant, with melamine dishes and dessert case, took me back in time. The service was prompt and the view was spectacular. I am not usually a fan of salad bars, however, this one was an exception. It offered a broccoli salad and a potato salad that I really enjoyed.The hushpuppies served with my seafood meal were crisp and... More

I wrote a review last year for the same restaurant and gave it a good review, but I must say this trip told a different story. We went Friday night and was seated fairly quickly for a party of 7. After ordering the wait game began. Our food took over an hour and we had to ask other servers to... More

We drove 200 miles roundtrip from South Georgia to eat at Roy's Seafood, Steinhatchee, FL. We got there at 5 PM, Saturday, were seated immediately at a requested window seat toward the west. Waitress was very friendly and attentive, named Pam. We had cocktails and she told us they had mullet that night which we love. Our party of three... More

I grew up spending summers and holidays in Steinhatchee and Roy's was always our place. Although the ownership has changed, the food has not! The house dressing and potato salad are worth the trip. Thanks to Linda Nd her staff for giving me a taste of my childhood.

Called order in. Person who answered was very helpful and suggestive in taking my order. Was told food would be ready for pickup in 15 minutes. When I arrived everything was ready and waiting. The orders were correct and the food was hot and delicious. Thanks Roys...You guys are the best!

We took the recommendations from our hotel and gave Roy's a try. When we walked it, the place was less than half full, but only one staff was in sight and she was trying to tend the bar, as well as serve/ seat customers. Two staff were seated at a both, eating. We were told to wait, they would be... More
