I've been to Roy's three times in the past year, for three different types of dinners: business dinner, date night, and a family dinner for my husband's birthday. Each time, our party was accommodated according to our needs. Service has been uniformly excellent, even when we made a mistake about our reservation time on one occasion (hosts graciously got us...

Like Roy's, as a franchise, each place does have it's own unique feel. Sorry to say this one was quite noisy. The two of us could not carry on a conversation because we couldn't hear each other. Food was delicious and serve was good.

This was our first visit to Roy's and I must say... We were impressed. One of our hobbies is checking out local Happy Hours. If we find the drinks, food and service amazing then we return for dinner. When we walked up we thought perhaps the restaurant hadn't actually opened for the evening as staff was arriving at the same... More

We don't usually go to Roys because its on the pricey side for us, but they'd sent us a big coupon and thought we 'd use it. After making a reservation and requesting a booth, we were quickly seated in one. The drink order wasn't right, and our server personally made them himself to make it right. We were impressed!...

Relaxed dining and above average food in a pretty dining room with friendly staff. A bit expensive but still less then NYC prices.

The food is always good here. If you are lucky enough to get a booth its large and comfortable and less distracting than the tables that are close together! There's also a bar section if you just want to order appetizers and drinks. Just note that you can not order off of the full menu if you are in the... More

Always a great dining experience that feels like home "out". Where my wife and I met and where we go to celebrate everything. If you like a great meal with great staff and phenomenal bartenders, this is your place!

First visit to Roy's. We had a 4 course meal, from the appetizers to the luscious chocolate torte dessert every mouthful was excellent. Great array of food - I had the Mahi Mahi and it was moist and flavorful. Our waiter Cory was also friendly and attentive even with a full restaurant. Easy parking and easy to get to. Can't... More
