“Go During the Week”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

After visiting this restaurant many times, usually on weekends, I can attest that it transforms from a madhouse on weekends where it is so noisy you can't hear yourself think, to a civilized and enjoyable experience during the week where the food may not change but the dining experience certainly does. The encrusted mahi mahi was delicious as was the butter fish. Just be aware that you will be getting spicy edamame instead of bread when you sit down.

“Felt Like a Rock Star”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Roy's is the place to be whenever we celebrate special occasions or if we just want to feel like rock stars! We visited Martin Luther King Weekend and was there for the $29.95 Monday where we can select any entree and appetizer for $29.95! We were there with my husband and two kids and left incredibly full! I just want to give a shout out to the General Manager, Daniel Kirby, for treating us special everytime we visit Roy's. We keep returning because of him and the AWESOME food that make us feel we are back in Hawaii!

We actually visited Roy's Jacksonville Beach and were disappointed with both the food and service. The experience made us appreciate Roy's Orlando even more! Thank you, Roy's Orlando!

“Not much to say that hasn't been said”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Roy's is a well known, high end favorite. The only negative is the acoustics of the place. Their appetizer deal right now is outstanding. Go early and sit at the bar for a nice appetizer and a drink, then have dinner.

The pineapple upside down cake is one of the best deserts I've ever had.

“Almost like being in Hawaii!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

My son and I went to dinner last Wednesday and it was nothing short of fabulous! Alex was on top of his game. He suggested the signature martini, and a number of appetizers and entrée and we took him up on everything. The canoe appetizer gave us a sampling of Hawaiian fusion. Chef was nice enough to substitute the salmon in place of the macadamia nut crusted snapper on the Trio of fish. All were well cooked, well thought out and presented beautifully. One of the managers came over and we told her it was my son's birthday. She was sweet enough to send over the individual pineapple upside down cake, which was both decadent and sweet. This evening started a mini vacation for my son and I that really got the ball rolling. Well done!!

“Great!”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

My mom and I went for dinner one night and were pleasantly surprised by the level of everything. We even mentioned that it was a special occasion to the manager and he sent over a free dessert! Everyone was so pleasant and the food was fantastic. I'd definitely go again.
