The Roy's in Kona is amazing...granted the ambiance is a little crowded, it's great food and drink! They have the worlds best short rib and their chocolate soufflé is amazing...two of my favorite dishes in one place. The Mac-nut crusted fish is wonderful as well...
I'm not a fan of chains generally, and if you've had questionable experiences at Roy's on the mainland, give this place a try anyway...it's definitely a different experience and one worth trying. This place is up there with all of the great restaurants in Kona...a staple for our vacation.

The best Roy's I have eaten at. Excellent service. Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and overall great. The food was simply delicious food--everything we ate was flavorful, matched well and cooked perfectly. We went back a couple times.

We are big fans of Roy's restaurant chain and always seek it out if there is one nearby. But this Roy's didn't live up to our expectations, from atmosphere and wait service and even the food. It is the first time we haven't had a fabulous experience at a Roy's. But this just wasn't Roy's quality to me.

Like all Roy's, they bring out appetizers for the kids very quickly, celery carrots and a small cheese quesadilla. The kids portions are pretty small, IMHO. We had an appetizer, two kids meals, seafood and steak, one alcoholic beverage for a bill of about $200.

Alaska Airlines has $10 off coupons per person for Roy's on the seatback card, don't forget to use these!

This is not a restaurant that I could go to on a regular basis. The meals are quite expensive. Having said that, this was by far the best meal I had over the course of 7 nights. The fish and shrimp we had was prepared to perfection, sauces mouth watering and, although there was plenty, could have eaten more and more. The restaurant was clean, service was responsive, food presentation was excellent. The mai tais were the best we had all week.
