We have ate at numerous Roys and they are always great. This one had a unique kids menue, 4 courses of little bits to eat. the first course showed up as soon as we sat down and the food kept on coming and kept the kid occupied and satisified. The adult food was also amazing with top notch service. Roys... More

Had dinner here one evening with a friend. This restaurant has a first class atmosphere from the time you walk in. Service is top notch as well. They offer a fantastic selection of wine or other drinks from the full bar. We both had a fish dinner which was prepared as ordered. Both were excellent. This would be a great... More

Roy's is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. The food is usually good but not great. The service is usually very good. One time we were seated in the corner by the windows and were surrounded by dozens of flys! They agreed to reseat us without any hassle, but that many flies in the restaurant disturbed me. I've...

We were really looking forward to our dinner at Roys. My boyfriend loved the Tampa location and talked it up. When we got there we were seated right away. Staff greeted us. Right away a very friendly, what appeared to be back server came right over to fill our waters. We sat there a while longer and I began looking... More

Perhaps it is just that the chefs in the local restaurants do not prepare food with any of the usual seasonings that folks are used to on the mainland, but the food here was very bland. The atmosphere was wonderful, and the view was beautiful as we sit in a room overlooking the pond. The waiter was very friendly and... More

We were looking forward to a nice meal at Roy's but didn't get it. They switched servers in the middle of ordering. The prices are outrageous! I had the small butter fish and it was unrecognizable - some kind of weird concoction of too many flavors that ruined the fish. My husband had the salmon - same story - ok... More

Food was excellent ! We liked it so much, we went back twice. Recommend any menu item, especially fish cooked to perfection . Wait staff were always helpful and knowledgeable about food & wine choices. The prix fix menu option is actually a great deal because you get so much food!

Roy's was a recommendation from friends and it did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in the door to when we left, the staff was very attentive and polite. We had a table at the window over looking the lake. We arrived before sundown and while we weren't able to see the sunset directly, we had a magnificent view... More

Every day is a different menu. We had the app plate for 2 which was great. I got the short ribs... Best I've ever had. Fall apart tender and boneless. My husband had the meatloaf app plus the frying roll app. Both were outstanding. Definitely will repeat but just beware it's pricey - ave price for an entree is about... More
