I always wonder why other restaurants don't steal the way Roy's handles kids. My wife and I get a great dining experience and my kids have coloring books and apps before we even open the menu. This Roy's delivered like always.

Took my wife and kids (11,13) for dinner. Ended up with a great table near the back ( it was a little crowded feeling in the main area). This was our kids first time to a nicer restaurant for a dinner and Roy's did not disappoint. We had potstickers for apps and then the butterfish, braised ribs, swordfish pesto pasta,... More

This is my least favorite Roy's in Hawaii. I am only comparing it to others on the Islands. Atmosphere is more stuffy, portions are much smaller and menu choices less. Service is always perfect though and they always bring the warm dinner rolls if asked.

The servers were very attentive and the food was out of this world. We ate there 2 nights in a row. 2 of the servers remembered us and one of the managers told us we have order 2 of his favorite dishes. We left the restaurant extremely happy.

First of all, Roys is with the company that also owns Outback Steakhouse and other places. I won a gift card to Outback and saw I could use it at Roys and we were on our way to Hawaii... so that's how I got to go to Roys. We weren't dressed fancy, just nice walking shorts and a blouse. We... More

Staying for 2 weeks at the Waikoloa Marriott gave us the opportunity to pretty much sample every eatery in the area. Roy's was one of the places we tried and we're glad we did. We called ahead and our table was ready for us when we arrived. The place was buzzing, quite busy and pretty noisy, par for the course... More

Firstly, the service was very good. The waiter was good at introducing the food, particularly the types of local fish, after establishing that we are not local and are recent, first timers in Hawaii. Service throughout the night was good and attentive, food arrived in a timely manner, even though it looked to be a busy night. My wife had... More

We went here for our "last night" dinner on the Big Island. The food was delicious (especially the chocolate soufflé!), but the overall experience was lacking. It's located in the middle of a big mall. Even though we had reservations, we were led to a tiny table in the very back of the restaurant, which is never a good feeling.... More

We had our last dinner of our vacation there. We all had either appetizers or small plate portions. The Ahi was excellent in flavor and texture. Really like the sushi and the service. All around great experience. Put the restaurant on the beach and it would get six stars.
