“Good food and great waiter!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We have been going to Roy's for years so we knew the food is good...but tonite was busy with large parties enjoying the holidays...so in the shuffle we sat a little longer than usual for service...but due to the keen eyes of a "great" waiter who's name is Bubba...what could have turned out to be a bad experience turned into a good nite of dining...He worked several tables and stiil did a great job of serving some good "home on the coast" seafood...Thanks Bubba for best service one could expect!!!

“Roys somewhat disappointed us”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

In early November we stopped at Roy's restaraunt on a Sunday evening. We had been there some years earlier and had a good experience. But on this Sunday evening the service was slow, the scallops just OK for the scallop capital supposedly. The key lime pie was quite mediocre with little of the tart key lime flavor normally desired.

Great spot for local seafood. Food was very good, good price and very good, friendly service. Plus many of the locals recommend and eat there.

“Great Seafood Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Roy's is found at the end of the road near the mouth of the river in Steinhatchee. It sits right on the water with a wonderful view of the setting sun. The delicious salad bar comes with almost every meal and complements the fresh seafood. You will find a wide selection of fresh fish both fried and broiled and hush puppies to die for. If you prefer shrimp or shellfish there are many choices. Dress is casual and the drive off of US 19 is worth the detour from your trip.

“Nice place to eat in an 'out of the way' coastal town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Excellent, fresh local seafood. Generous portions but not inexpensive.

Courteous service.

Great waterfront location.
