Wasn't a good day for the cook!

I have heard good things about the Resturant! This day I think the cook was not having their best day..

Four of us just made a trip down from NE Florida to Roy's based on our friends previous visit years ago. We arrived mid-afternoon for a late lunch. Three of us ordered blackened grouper fingers with the salad bar, one ordered fried shrimp with scallops. The salad bar was decent. The entree came with one additional side, which was OK.... More

This was recommended by locals when we were exploring towns and villages up the coast. The inside of the restaurant is open, boxy, and unremarkable but your eyes will be fixed the beautiful views through the large windows when you are not focusing on your food. Ask what is fresh and they'll tell you what was locally caught or just... More

We tried to eat here even after reading the bad reviews because there were so few choices in town. We walked in and waited for almost ten minutes while a lady sat at a table folding napkins and wrapping silverware. She kept looking at us but refused to get up and seat us. The restaurant was not that busy and... More

Regular customers since 2004. Service is good all the time! Other visitors, be kind with reviews on special event weekends or occasions. It is a small town!! When hundreds of people flood this small town and restaurant, like during scallop season, you ARE going to WAIT! That does not mean service is bad or they are not prepared. We love... More

After fishing all day, we clean our catch and head to Roy's. They will fry, blacken or grill it. We order sides and you can't imagine how good our fresh catch is. Service is good and the sunsets are beautiful.

Visited during Valentine's day weekend. Management and staff were not prepared for the bigger than average crowds. Waited an hour to be seated and another hour for food to arrive. There were empty tables during our wait. Saw at least two parties of "local" folks who clearly knew the wait staff bypass the waiting list and were seated right away.... More
