I have been to this restaurant before and I use to be good. But last week I ordered Fetucchine with Home Made Meatballs and they were dried out and could not even cut them with a knife. Very poor quality.

Given this restaurant has been featured on "You Gotta Eat Here" and it's chef/owner has competed on Chopped Canada, I've wanted to eat here, and the opportunity finally presented itself at a breakfast hour. The Steak and Eggs was a very good choice. The eggs...More

There is very little call for vegan meals in this demographic. It can be done, but I have had 2 requests in 10 years for vegan meals.

We are a full service family style restaurant. We strive for fresh, in house made food. We say "EAT REAL FOOD" and the only way you can do that is by knowing what the ingredients are and that it does not come out of a package. Come to Roy's, Eat real food, and laugh a little!!
