“Chicago or Sarasota, it's all the same”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Roy's is one of our favorite restaurants in Chicago. We love the food and the service. No other restaurant caters to its customers like the staff at Roy's in Chicago. So we decided to go to Roy's in Sarasota. From the moment we entered the restaurant at Siesta Drive and Route 41, we thought we were back in Chicago. The Hawaii-based restaurant chain gets it right. They treat their customers like kings and queens and keep them happy by serving good food. Everything at Roy's is unique, from the five-item appetizer to the butterfish and Mahi Mahi (my wife's favorite) to the chocolate souffle. The presentation is excellent, too. And who came up with the idea of offering those delicious salty green beens? Roy's prides itself on making each visit a very special occasion. We have celebrated several birthdays and anniversaries at Roy's in Chicago. In two years, we probably will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary at Roy's in Sarasota.

“Wedding party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Having a meal at Roy's after a wedding. Used to love Roy's in Atlanta, so glad to find one in Sarasota. Meal was great as was the service, the only issue was the restaurant was very warm. I am normally freezing inside and I even found it to be hot. Melting Chocolate dessert is a must! Would return if visiting Sarasota again. No issue with separate checks and a large party.
