We split the platter with fried mullet, shrimp, and oysters. It was delicious! Next time we will get our own combos each with 2 choices with only the mullet and shrimp as those were exceptionally good!!! Split a bottle of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay, nice and cold, served in ice bucket just as we like. Great salad bar and very sweet... More

Don't order the chicken this is what you get. After we complained they brought me another small piece that wasn't so dry. The hostess was not very friendly either. The waitress was very nice.

We stopped here for lunch because we love restaurants on the water. Its a cute place! It has a nice menu, outdoor seating, a small gift shop. The service was good and the food was too. All in all we had a nice time. The town of Steinhatchee is a neat little town along the water. We really enjoyed it.

How can there be a waterfront restaurant with food this bad.? Serious. Unbelievable awful food. Broiled even. How do you mess that up? You live here, yoh grow up here, is this the idea of good food? Wow!! Could not get 1/3 of meal past my gullet. It is THAT BAD.

To be fair I can't tell you anything about the food as we were never waited on. When we arrived we asked if the bar was open and could we eat there. It was and the bar was located just in front of the hostess station at the front of the restaurant. the hostess told us the bar tender/server would... More

We enjoyed a good meal as well as good service. The salad bar was fresh and refilled regularly. Drinks from the bar were nice and potent! 😉 we all enjoyed watching the boats come and go on the beautiful Steinhatchee River. The sunset is awesome from Roy's.

Great dining, excellent fast service, great salad bar and seafood, Nice views, great for large tables too. Prime rib and steak a bit tough! Great sunset views on the water!
