Mixed reviews on this visit to Roy’s. Service was very good. Atmosphere energetic. The food was well average. Shushi offerings should be reconsidered as they were subpar. Main course fish was good. Not a bad choice but order right.

The food was fabulous. My husband had the melt in your mouth rib eye with the limited special of a lobster tail. He said the sauce was incredible. I had the tempura vegetables which were nice and crispy and the dipping sauce was so yummy....More
