One of the few places open on Easter Sunday. We all ordered something different and it was all good. Fresh seafood, fast service and enjoyable atmosphere.

Captain Roy's is beach dining with a flair! Good food served fast at fair prices. Doesn't get better than this in the Valley. Don't miss the Fumi Salad!!

My family and I love Cap'n Roy's food! Best Mexican food on the island. They have a good balance of seafood, Mexican food and foods such as pasta and sandwiches. The meat is always very tender! We would recommend this restaurant!
