We went to Roy's for Mother's Day Brunch. It was a prixe fix menu in which you could make choices with the appetizers, the main entree, and dessert. There were so many amazing dishes it was hard to pick out one! I had Asian Spare Ribs for an appetizer, Macadamia Crusted Mahi Mahi as my entree, and Chocolate Souffle for the dessert! The Pineapple Orange Guava Mimosas were a great choice for brunch, also, and the edamame (soybean) appetizers that were brought the table were delicious. The waiters were attentive, and quite helpful with advising me as to my food allergies. They were willing to change the sauce on my fish so that I could order that dish without worrying about a shellfish allergy!

My husband and I went to Roy's for their Aloha happy hour. They offer select appetizers and drinks for 5 dollars each. My favorite was the wagyu beef sliders and my husband's favorite was the lobster potstickers! After we both ate several appetizers we ordered the chocolate lava cake which was wonderful!

The seafood at Roy's is well prepared. The salad ingredients are fresh. We enjoyed sitting outdoors and enjoying the water views. Just request to be near a heater because once the sun goes down, so do the temperatures!

I love this restaurant. the Prix Fix is great if you are trying to be a little budget wise. Otherwise all the food is great, I have the hardest time choosing what to order because of the great selection. we usually eat here twice a year and always love it. Definitely have the chocolate lava cake and the hawaiian martini!!

The Butterfish is Roy's specialty and should not be missed. I don't order anything else when I go to Roy's. Also, on Friday's, they have a great Happy Hour!
