I wanted to give Roy's 4 stars but just couldn't . The service was fine, I had corn chowder and a fish basket, my partner had a Greek salad and the clam chowder. Her salad was good, had a base of potato salad under the lettuce and shrimp. Large portions, but the fish had little taste, almost like it was... More

I had a Raspberry Martini & he had a Bloody Mary and we're both so good!! Our waitress Neicey was also so attentive & made us feel right at home!!! I highly recommend the... More

Thank you for the review. We take a lot of pride in the fact that we make all of our salad bar items in house. It is very easy and cost effective to by items "off the shelf" for the salad bar. We feel that you get a much better product doing the old fashioned way. Thanks again for the... More

Took the family for dinner on 12/23 a total of 12 people. Arrived, placed our order and it took 90 minutes to get our food. There were several other tables of 4 to 6 people that came in after us and was served before us. The steak ordered came out incorrect and we were told by the waitress they would... More

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
