We come here at least 2 or 3 times each year (dont judge, its expensive) The service is always amazing, the food is wonderful, the place is beautiful and very elegant. This is the perfect restaurant for a date or to celebrate an anniversary. For a couple plan to spend at least $100

Nice ambiance, excellent waiter, and yummy food except for one salad which was sent back for a different dressing. Blue cheese dressing was in improvement over the Asian inspired one. Blackened tuna was a big hit.

Roy's was a favorite from long ago, so I thought it would be the perfect spot to grab a nice bite at the bar. I love the entrance with the greenery and torches guiding the way. Devin was the extraordinary bartender that evening. He has a great, easy going personality and helped me choose a perfect meal. The sushi rolls... More

Everything is impeccably presented. Tasteful decor but never garish. Tasty food neatly but never brashly presented. Even the staff know how friendly to be without being too familiar or too funny. The ambiance is "Tropical Pacific with class and restraint". Roy's is pretty well the perfect place to impress a date - if you can afford it. Prices are high... More

Located close to the airport, it meets the standards of Roy’s, great fresh, local seafood in a fusion cuisine in a nice atmosphere. They have a wide variety of wine, liquor, and locally brewed beers too! I had the miso butterfish (black cod) and it was cooked perfectly, made me think I was back home in Hawaii! Pineapple upsidedown cake... More

I was expecting great things from this restaurant. I've heard good things over the years. We made reservations and got in on time. There were a few open tables but we were seated in the corner at a table for two. Our server was nice, friendly and energetic until he had a large group seated. He answered our questions and...

We had a really good experience last night for dinner here. Our server was very nice and personable. This was a Birthday dinner date and I called in advance to let them know. Not only did they bring out the Birthday dessert I requested, but they had a card and flowers waiting for us at the table when we arrived.... More

Amazing service. We had Keith as our waiter and he provided clear, humorous, effective guidance as first-timers to Roy's. Tried the canoe - all appetizers I tried were delicious. Had the filet and shrimp and everyone else at the table thought they ordered the wrong thing! Perfectly cooked. The real star of the show was the chocolate souffle - excellent... More
