We had a bad experience with Roy's in Maui many years ago and so had not been back. We drove past the Roy's in Rancho Mirage and thought we would give it a new chance. They have a good but pricy wine list. Corkage is $25. The menu accommodates gluten free needs. The menu is quite small but the Ahi... More

4 of us went there for "Aloha Hour" last Friday, and it was great. Drinks were great including Mai Tai's and the White Sangria. Bar bites including Spring Rolls and Ahi Tuna were likewise excellent. We are locals and will be back! Service was impeccable.

We decided to celebrate my birthday at Roy's and boy were we pleased!!! The service, food and ambience were spectacular. We were four in our party. I look forward to our next visit as I've been dreaming of the Ono fish which was my main course!!!

The waiter was great! The restaurant is a little pricy. everything is a la carte. We had the least expensive item on the menu, and it was actually the best choice on the menu. I've been there several times, and I would go back for that particular item on the menu.

We returned this year doe our anniversary and Dar, the bartender, actually remembered us. The entire staff was personable and made sure our anniversary celebration was exceptional. The food is excellent and the environment is warm, but... More

After spending $120. for two we left hungry. The Happy Hour is o.k. But don't waste your time or money for dinner. Waiter not friendly, except when bringing the bill, of course playing for the tip.

Went to Roy's for hubby's 40th birthday. They set up the table with a photo frame Wishing him happy birthday. They took pictures which they also framed. They wrote the children's names and his name on the desert plates. The food was amazing. This place makes the best pineapple upside down cake I have ever tasted. Very nice restaurant, slightly...
