“Hey Roy ! Where's the Crab?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I have eaten in many Roy's, and this is the 3'rd time in Maui, probably the last too. They need to go back to their roots when the food was good and offered a fair value. Seriously, 14 dollars for 2 crab cakes that MAYBE weighed an ounce total, not each. When they presented the plate, My wife, who orders crab cakes whenever they are offered, looked up at me with a, " is this a joke " look. It seems they have gone the route of many food establishments and are now basing their prices on reputation and the sky's the limit. Well, as far as Roy's goes, I have reached my limit. Bye bye Roy's, I'll stick with the Sea House ( Napili ), Crab cakes are 4x larger, 1/2 the price and better tasting. I won't mention the main courses other to say that they too missed the mark and are over priced as well.

“Not what it once was”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This was our first visit to Roy's at their new Kaanapali location. The setting is nice and it's certainly more convenient to get to tha the former Kahana location if you're staying in Kaanapali or Lahaina. The service was very good as it usually is. The food however is disappointing. I really think Roy's has lost their way. When founded by Roy Yamaguchi it was a special place with innovative dishes presented in amazing ways. Since Roy sold out it's been a continuous slide downhill to mundane. I don't expect to return as there are plenty of better spots in Maui at this price.

“Good as usual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Roys is a great dining experience regardless of which one you go to. Consistent time in and time out. Upscale dinning with reasonable prices. Get the pineapple upside down cake for dessert!!! Best i have every had.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We gave Roy's a try and were quite disappointed. The Edamame was excellent - loved how they served it as a bar snack. Both our meals were served in sauces that unfortunately the food had to swim in. Mine was selection of fish which could have been quite nice if not for the overabundant soupy sauce which lost any flavour the sauce should have had. My husband ordered steak and unfortunately the same thing, could have been much better if not for the sauce. We felt that the dining area was just one big open space, perhaps for unobstructed views of water and resorts beyond, which really isn't spectacular. Sad to say that of all the dining choices in the area we wouldn't choose to dine here again - sorry !

“What a disappointment!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We had eaten at Roy's in Ko'Olina, Oahu, last year, and we really enjoyed that experience. So we tried Roy's in Ka'anapali, Maui, this year. What a terrible disappointment! The service was below average. The food was below average. The only redeeming factors were the view of the Ka'anapali golf course and the Chocolate Souffle...... yeah, this place does not even compare with Roy's in Ko'Olina..... don't waste your time and money eating here........ :(
