Food is always good!

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

If you are expecting 5 star dining, Steinhatchee is not the place for you. If you just want great food and a very friendly staff, try Roy's. We have eaten there 3 times in the last 7 days and it has always been very good. Kick back and relax, it will take a bit of time to get your food,... More

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

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 apologize for your poor experience. We love serving large groups and encourage you to call ahead if at possible. Our large back semi private room is perfect for large groups and hope that you will give us another opportunity to make it up to you. Thanks for the feedback. More
