The acoustics in the huge dining room are so bad you almost have to shout to be heard. The appetizers tend to be better than the main courses. Portions for the latter are too big; there's too much meat, and the chefs go too heavy on the sugar and the sauces. You hardly need a dessert after that!

Nice food, great service, but pricey. Also a chain, but we ate here the last night on the Big Island and really enjoyed our meal.

Fantastic food and service. Our dinner was amazing and the servers and wait staff were great. The prices were high, but that was everywhere.

Although the service was friendly and attentive and the food good, this Roy's location lacked the sophisticated atmosphere and delicious coctails that we are accustomed to. Our local Roys (Chandler, AZ) has definitely spoiled us.

We went there on our 20th wedding anniversary and received wonderful attention as well as a delicious meal. We had mistakenly made a reservation for a different Roy's and they were so gracious and found a table for us right away. It was dark out so we couldn't appreciate the lakeside setting but I'm sure it is lovely in daylight.... More
