We visited this restaurant with some friends. It's one of the few eating establishments in the town of Steinhatchee.

The waitress was quite proficient considering the number in our party. My wife... More

Ate here on Saturday night. We were a large group (8 adults & 2.5 kids) & hostess told us it would be an hour wait. We started waiting at 6pm, and finally got seated around 7:30pm. And that's only because we eventually split our group in half to be seated. We waited a LONG time for our food - 45... More

Was told an hour wait, turned into an agonizing three hour experience with poor service and high priced average food. We not be back and have been coming here for years.

So, we were going out to Steinahatchee to enjoy the view and have some brunch on the water. We ended up Roy's. It was unfortunately 10:50 am and they don't open until 11:00 am. I had no idea walking in through an open door 10 minutes early was a capital offense in Steinhatchee . Two of the most unpleasant, unhelpful,... More

I can't really say anything about the food because the service was so bad we left. We sat ourselves, and in a couple minutes a waitress took our drink order. After about 10 minutes we got our drinks. We drank our drinks and never saw the waitress again. We left. We tried to pay for our drinks but the host... More

Had the coconut shrimp. Gulf coast shrimp seemed to be as big as a hot dog. Plentiful servings. Worth the time and travel to get there.

This restaurant serves the same old tourist food. If you are hungry it is there but it is nothing worth raving about.

After a friendly neighbor let us dock our boat at his house (restaurant on the water doesn't have a dock, especially at low tide), the trip got even better. The staff was amazing, food was delicious, and the locals welcoming and gave us a history lesson on the area and filled us in on the "secret" places! After 2 hours... More

We stopped to eat here on our way to Clearwater, FL. The view was soooo worth it! The food was excellent. I did feel like it was very expensive, though.

I had a broiled seafood platter with 8 shrimp, 8 oysters, 60 or more small scallops, a deviled crab and a small broiled flounder. It was all perfectly broiled and yummy. I also had a trip to their salad bar which was also very good with many homemade pasta a salad choices. My wife was also very happy with her... More
