We were the second people at Roy's when they opened and were not disappointed with our food or service. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had both the crab and corn soup and the seafood chowder. Both were well cooked and flavorful. Our table then had the soft shell crab, coconut shrimp, deviled crab, fried fish, fried shrimp, and...

A very country style place. Slow service, but the food is really great and large portions. Ordered the cheeseburger with all the fixings and it was to so good. A whole slice of tomato and onion, with 4 pickles and a large leaf of lettuce. Put together, it stood 4 inches tall. We all enjoyed our meal and would definitely... More

Lunch at Roy's was a wonderful experience. The restaurant is located directly on the water which is a real plus. The seafood platter was huge and enough for 2. We particularly enjoyed the flounder, shrimp and scallops. Service was excellent. At the time we were there however the salad bar was low on items which was a disappointment, but everything... More

Food was descent. Beware of long waits. After checking in we where told it would be a 30 min wait. An hour and 15 minutes later we had a seat. Had to wait for several minutes for a server to take our order. Made our way to the salad bar but was unable to eat because they had no clean... More

Food was good! Service was excellent. We enjoyed a nice dinner of bay scallops! Perfect location for a sunset dinner. The salad bar was good too.

We had dinner at Roy's on 7/25/16. It was our first time and definitely will be the last. The service and the food were equally as bad. My prime rib sandwich was like shoe leather. There were nine of us having dinner and not one person had anything good to say. Very few places to eat in Steinhatchee so you... More

After our family scalloping trip we decided to eat at Roy's, a wonderful seafood restaurant where our family has dined for many years. We have never had any complaints about food or service. Everything has always been great until our Sunday, July 24 visit. We arrived at 4:00, signed in as a group of four, and were given a beeper.... More

My wife and I, along with a couple of friends, visited Roy's after we'd been on the water all day. Scalloping season is pretty busy here, so we had a little wait to get seated. After being seated though, Lindsey greeted us, got our food in no time flat, and took really good care of us. All of this while... More
