“Very nice”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

They gave me a piece of Ahi that must have been 14 ounces, and it was so fresh that it twitched twice when they set the plate down. It's a very memorable restaraunt.

“So happy I ate here”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Loved the Trio fish sampler (can't remember the name right now)...just delicious! But the best are the ribs...geez! Can't tell you how good those are...you just have to try them yourself! That shouldn't be an appetizer, that should be a full-on meal! Can't wait to go back!

“New menu, yippee!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We have been regulars at Roy's for years and I don't usually review local restaurants. Let me start by saying that this is the best Roy's of all... Danno and his team do an awesome job and have it all over the Hawaiians. It has probably been four months since we have been since the menu has been so stable for years. But tonight we got the treat of something new! Only one sushi dish, some new fish offerings and allot more meat. Started with Mai Tai's for the 1st time in ages, what a kick! We can't come here without having the calamari appetizer... world class. We tried the new Bi Bim Bap (shortribs) which was a little under spiced but I ordered some extra sauce and it straightened it right out. A little poke in between, always a treat. We both had the new seafood hot pot and it was delicious... lobster, clam, shrimp, and mussels over noodles in a well seasoned broth. Order a little extra if you like it more soupy. And, the chocolate bomb (soufflé) is always a nice way to end. They have a great Cabernet Franc (Chinon, 2007) on the wine menu which also had some other new offerings. If you haven't been or been for awhile, go check it out. :-)

“Never a disappointment”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We have been to the Roy's in Tampa as well as Orlando. and it never disappoints. Service is unchallenged and likewise w/ the cuisine. We arrived for Aloha Hour in Orlando prior to our meal and the options we chose were delicious. Starting w/ the Hawaiian Martini, which was beyond perfection - just be careful - the pineapple which has been infusing the vodka = moonshine absorption powers. We opted for the smoked mahi tacos, Ebi roll and lobster potstickers during Aloha Hour and all were ultra tasty. However, as an observation the tacos were sltly on the micro side (even for an app) and uber-crispy=crumbly. All were excellent in the sense of flavor, We ultimately opted for the Shutome (broadbill swordfish) entree which was nothing short of phenomenal both in Tampa & Orlando. I believe it is flown in DAILY frm Hawaii and it shows! We live in S Fl & are fish *snobs* yes I said it - wish there was a Roy's in the Keys to put all of the other restaurants to shame. Bottom line: GO.
