“OK food, but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We ended up there while on vacation with some friends. It is a chain of Hawaiian "fusion" seafood restaurants, although I saw nothing really Hawaiian about it except the prices. We ordered calamari as an appetizer. We (my husband, friends and I) have had much better and we felt like the portion was small for the price. My entree was grilled shrimp and it was tough (overcooked). I was afraid to send it back because it took so long to get it. My husband had Filet mignon that he said was ok.."nothing special for the price". No one in our group raved about their meal, they just said it was ok. Needless to say we were not impressed by the food, portions nor the prices. If we see another Roy's on vacation (there isn't one in our hometown), we'll just pass it by.

“Good - Yes. Number 1 - NO!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Roys is a Hawaiian theme seafood restaurant chain. They do a good job with fresh and tasty meals with a Hawaiian twist. I find myself at this or other Roys more often than just about any chain restaurant (including McDonalds) in the world. I know what to expect and it's always decent so when the options are limited it is a good choice. How it is the number one restaurant in Jax Beach I do not know.

“Always Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Roy's always is consistently good food and good service. We always bring our guests here when they are in town. We have been here about 12 times and have never been let down. Keep up the good work!

“Serving too small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

The portioning is too small compared to other bistros. I would think with the price I paid that I could leave the place satisfied. I had to eat a snack when I got home.
