Went with a dozen including 4 little ones. They took excellent care of the kids feeding them quickly. The rest of us had various dishes which were all excellent. Try the 4 fish sampler. It was superb.

Met some friends whom we see infrequently. Roy's is a bit pricey. The food overall was good. The service was average.

I have been to several locations in different cities. I have nevertheless been disappointed. If you want nice dinner, this is nice for a special occasion. We were staying with friends and wanted to treat to dinner. A little pricey but worth it. Order the chocolate soufflé when you order your entree. You will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend the Maui salad and anything from the fish side of the menu (the butterfish is too sweet for my taste). Only one server was unprofessional; the rest of the staff did a great job.

Server highly suggested seafood as it is their specialty. Three of us had the Mahi Mahi and they were all overcooked.Ordered the Bacon Truffle Mac & Cheese and it was bland. Server told us they had a chocolate souffle but it turned out to be a chocolate souffle cake (similar to a lava cake) Again, disappointing when you are expecting... More

We booked Roys several months ago to celebrate a family birthday with a group of 15. The preparation and execution of the event was excellent! The staff was extremely accommodating and the food was prepared to perfection. Thank you for making our family event so special.
