We have been to Hawaii many times and have enjoyed Roy's in the past. This time I was left feeling disappointed since the food options and quality were just not what we've experienced in the past. The drinks were really light and we were somewhat rushed through dinner. My teenagers did the tasting menu and enjoyed it but the fish... More

My sister & brother-in-law love Roy's and have eaten at many of his restaurants. It definitely has an asian flare. Since this was my first time, I was expecting the best. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed in my food. I ordered the special fish of the day, and it was very salty. I couldn't even finish it. The other... More

The food was excellent. But the service, not top notch. Sorry the food deserves a bit more refined service. Loud sloppy buss boys. Air conditioning blasting us. Juvenile door staff, didn't even bother to look up to say good bye. Simply not up to the quality pf the food. That said we had a good meal and will enjoy Roy's... More

Every time I go to Hawaii this is the one place I always go! Its a little pricy restaurant dishes cost anywhere from around $25-$50. Its definitely a place to celebrate a special occasion or a nice evening out. My favorite plate which you can only get at this location comes with Ribs and Shrimp. By far the best Ribs... More

Roy's continues to be one of my favorite destination eateries. This year I selected Roy's for my birthday dinner. My wife and I were joined by good friends for outstanding cocktails and meals of: short ribs, Hawaiian, grilled mix plate, butter fish, and a large dinner salad. Great food and outstanding service made for truly memorable birthday celebration.

The best best best and favorite restaurant in Hawaii. Never been disappointed in all the years we have eaten there on our stay on the Big Island. They always introduce new and wonderful fish and the crabcake are the best. Did I mention service? It's excellent. The Ahi is the best and made exactly like my husband wants it. Almost... More
