After spending 4 days at the J.W Marriott, we ate at Roy's three times. Atmosphere is casual and you can enjoy drinks on the patio or inside to get away from the heat. Friday afternoon we enjoyed happy hour on the patio and enjoyed some live entertainment with a solo guitar performing for us. Food: We had the pork ribs... More

Service was excellent, food was very good. The appetizer was very good. They give you a bowl of edamame stop snack on while deciding on dinner.

The appetizers are truly first class, we ordered all of them and we were not disappointed. Read my review of the Marriott canyon springs for more info. A must go to place.

We always enjoy Hawaiian Regional Cuisine at Roy's restaurants while in Hawaii or in different cities. The Desert Ridge was no exception! Service was excellent and the food was too. We had lobster pot stickers which were quite good and so we're all our fish dishes!

I always hate it when the server comes to the table and proceeds to describe the menu to you. I am sure this is policy but it starts the evening off on the wrong foot. If I need help with the menu, I will ask for it. As for the food, we each had an appetizer and then shared the... More

This was my first experience with a Roy's restaurant and I went in with little expectation or knowledge of this chain. I was pleasantly surprised with the lovely atmosphere and nice solid menu choices. I did find it to be a bit pricey, but all in all very good. I had the beef sliders (on the bar menu) and they...

Consistently great; in quality of ingredients, preparation, flavor and excellent service. This visit I tried the Scallops; highly recommended. On another evening I did the prix fixe menu which included dynamite shrimp appetizer (awesome!), sea bass entree, and of course chocolate soufle for dessert. You just can't go wrong BF had short ribs one night and Thai Chicken the other;... More

We had flown all day and finally arrived at the JW Marriott - we were there for a business conference - we were sorta beat and we inquired with the hotel about a nice restaurant not too far away where we could get some "real - non airplane food". They smiled and recommended "Roy's" - right there at the hotel... More

We had a very nice meal here with friends who like to dine a Roys. It was our first time and a real treat for us. We loved the edamame beans instead of bread!
