Arrived at 4:10pm for Aloha hour. Very first time we have visited this restaurant. Ordered a Mango Majito, where is the mango? Tasted like lemon with mint, had to ask for more mango juice. Waitress brought mango juice with some soda water in it. Put into my drink and it tasted better, but still too lemony for my liking. Mint... More

We each had the Ebi Roll appetizers and they were delicious! The soup and salad were okay. The desserts: we tried the bread pudding which was rather blah but the chocolate cake was quite tasty. The service was prompt and the staff friendly.

Hawaiian fusion cuisine is creative and delicious. Unfortunately, the service is slow. The time it took to get water, the constant disappearance of our waiter, the slowness to get our entrees - all too slow. Waiter forgot to bring lemon, too. The restaurant is also crowded and noisy because the kitchen is open and adjacent the bar. The food is... More

So many restaurant experiences are disappointing: the food is mediocre, and the service at best gets a greeting of "you guys," and request responses of "no problem." Not at Roy's. The staff is so well trained, it almost overshadows the outstanding "Hawaiian Fusion" cuisine. I am really picky when it comes to seafood, and rarely order it out. However, last... More

My spouse and I discovered Roy's Aloha Hour years ago, and they continue to have it to this day. The prices are really great on drinks and appetizers. The appetizers are AMAZING especially the sushi roll. If I may suggest, take your, date, spouse, or friend, and order every appetizer offered during happy hour, I think there are 5-7 different...
