What a wonderful experience. My husband and I came in (on a recommendation from a local) with a party of 5 with no reservations and they got us in in 15 minutes. And what a dinner. The fish was buttery, flaky and excellent and everything else I tried was fantastic. Wine selection was nice as well. Highly recommend this place.

We had company visiting and wanted to take them to a nice dinner. We requested to dine upstairs to see the sunset. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgable. I ordered the misoyaki butterfish which was wonderful. My husband had the prix fixe meal with the short ribs which was fun since they pick all the wines with each entree.... More

We had been wanting to try this place for a while and finally did. I recommend reservations which are very easy to do online. We had a table right by the window and had a nice view of the water. The food was excellent! We could't decide on the appetizer so we got the variety canoe for two. My husband... More

This is Roy's original restaurant and the only one that always has crab cakes. You can have them as an entree or a smaller version as an appetizer. The wonderful sause is on the bottom so you can use it as you desire. You can sit outside or in the bar area without reservations but you need to come early... More

Consistently excellent food. The food preparation and presentations are great as always. This Roy's menu is a little different from other Roy's which is nice. The food tasted delicious and the service was friendly. The ocean view from the 2nd floor restaurant is just beautiful. We had a great 4th of July dinner.

I have reviewed this restaurant a number of times, some rating it excellent, others average. Maybe I have given it a poor on occasion. Tonight we had a delicious meal and the service was excellent. This has been the case for our last few visits. Certainly don't come here if quiet is your highest priority. The large open arrangement certainly... More

I've been to Roy's several times and it has usually been very good. It seemed too noisy to be an upscale restaurant and to be charging those prices. The filet mignon was very good, the chocolate soufflé was ok, and the iced tea was very weak. Service was good and staff was nice. I'd ask to sit in a quieter... More

Very shocked, thought this was a high class restaurant. My wife and I both suffered from food-poisoning after eating the Miso tenderloin beef here. It was terrible. Wondering how many other people have had foodpoisoning at this restaurant.

Overpriced, noisy, with little children crying -- all in all, a great disappointment. I am adding eighteen more characters to get over 100.
