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.

We love Roy's on the Big Island and always have dinner there at least once when we are there. This last visit was no exception. We split the shrimp appetizer--very good. My husband got the ahi (he always does) and I got the mekajiki--both were excellent. We had the hot chocolate souffle for dessert--rich and warm. It was a perfect... More

We had a terrific dinner at Roy's. The Miso Butterfish [cod] was superb. But the best thing during the meal was the fruit cobbler. It was fantastic. We had am issue with the neighboring table being very loud. We politely complained to the manager who was very understanding and responsive. He addressed the issue as well as comping our desert....

Can you really go wrong with Roy's? The food is fresh, delicious, and consistent. You might not always have a perfect plate of food, but day in and day out, you are going to have a fabulous meal. The service is always attentive and welcoming; it's truly amazing how the wait staff does not seem jaded by the river of... More

We heard a lot about Roy's and it lived up to the hype. Fresh, local fish. Very tasty, good portions. Worth a visit.
