We love the Friday night fish fry, and Royal Court has become the place of choice for family birthday celebrations. The service for parties of ~10 is great, and the food is excellent. The atmosphere is warm and quiet enough for easy conversation, and the small salad bar offers several salads (three bean, potato, macaroni, coleslaw, and tossed) plus the... More

Oddly the pictures above are Meadow Court which is the associated motel.... Anyway, this place looks ordinary but turns out some great food. I have really been impressed by the fruit cup the last few weeks. Very fresh every time. This morning my associate had a very generous portion of corned beef hash. There were 4 of ys. We were...

The crowd at lunch tells you it's OK, and the food is well presented and tasty, while the prices are quite reasonable. The atmosphere of the crowd makes the experience and fun.

Arrived at the motel next door late and had fish and chips special. Food was pretty good and the service was ok. Price was very good. Not gourmet 5 star but overall good! The attached bar/lounge was a bit noisy with a few Friday night locals having fun. Overall not a bad experience.

Although this restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, my main acquaintance with Royal Court is breakfast. I would take my crew of workman there, and sometimes a few buddies, and they were very accommodating. Chris would remember our special preferences and have things ready for us. The eggs benedict were a favorite of mine, but they have many good items.... More

Our Red Hat group gathers here every Tuesday morning for breakfast. The food is always good and there is nothing the staff won't do to make our visit enjoyable. We are a fairly large group but that presents no problem to the wait staff ~ the service is excellent and always friendly. We also schedule special events here and we... More

I haven't been to the Royal Court in years but stopped for dinner several weeks ago and was impressed enough to invite friends on the last outing. Both times our meals were prepared perfectly, the service friendly and the food served promptly. Best of all I think its the best food value in town. They have an "early bird dinner... More

My parents enjoy this restaurant, so we dined here with them and a sibling from out of town. I thought the food was OK. Not great, not bad. Service was good. This restaurant isn't on my list of places to go, but it fit the bill for this meal.

I had dinner here with a group of friends who go to the Royal Court fairly often. I had an OK salad. Nothing to get excited about here but the prices weren't too high.
