A very good Roys

Great waiter, tasty food served beautifully, we had two different fish entrees...nice ambience by golf course lake. Roys is located in King's shopping center...after dinner we found music to listen and nice shops to browse. We enjoyed a lovely evening. Grammy Sharon

As always great food and service, especially desert. They specialize in seafood, and as a non fish eater they always have other selections that are incredible, like the braised short ribs.

If you are going to eat at a chain, where better than the islands that it began on? At least that was my reasoning. I had also had a friend specifically recommend this Roy's. Whilst the food was still good, it wasn't great. It lacked a lot of the delicacy you would normally expect from the Roy's chain. What really... More

We dined here with our 2 kids ages 11 and 14 in late May 2015 and we had an amazing experience. It's island casual so bringing kids was not an issue. Service was outstanding and as you would expect, the fish was awesome. Had their version of a wedge salad which was served with island tomatoes... Really good! For the... More

The menu has a combination and a la cart. The combination is decently priced for Hawaii, and was amazing! The a la cart can be a little pricey but the food is very well prepared and tasty! The service is five star!

The food is Roy's (excellent!) but the decor really lets the restaurant down... the carpet is tired and aged, as are the tables... just could really do with a facelift in our humble opinion. Other than that, good service and the great food you expect to get at Roy's...

Let me start this out by being totally candid... I think that Roy's is pricey, I am not a Roy's fan because of price. My wife likes Roy's and that is why we go there. Restaurant was fully booked when we arrived. The noise level was extremely high. One could not communicate across the table. We did have a nice... More

We went for Mother's Day, it was a set menu which I wasn't thrilled about but they're super busy so I understand the need for order. I loved my butterfish, my husband was okay about his swordfish. The dessert soufflé was the best, so many places like to fake it with pouring the milk inside but this place does right... More
