We love going to Roy's when on Maui. It's our "special occasion" restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is always spot on. It is pricy but we think worth it.

We had lunch here twice on our trip. Great view of the golf course. Very good service. Had the "adult " grilled cheese both times and it was a delight. Very good lunch menu. We did not have dinner there so I can't speak to evening service or quality.

I have only eaten at one other Roy's Restaurant and it was in Baltimore, MD. I was with a perty of four and we decided to visit this Roy's as we all had good experiences on the mainland. However, this Roy's is predominately a golf clubhouse for the Kaanapali Golf Course. We were expecting a fine dining experience with table... More

We made reservations and it was helpful as this is a busy, popular restaurant - for very good reason. We wanted to try a variety of the menu offerings, so were very appreciative of the small plate choices. Butterfish and ahi poke were our favorites. The house version of a margarita is exceptional, and a good way to start the... More

The restaurant has ample parking and is located on the golf course and tables have a golf course view. We made a reservation and were seated promptly upon arrival. The server, Kelly, was excellent! We all tried different entrees and all really enjoyed our dinners. I ordered a Monchong fish dinner. The fish was cooked perfectly and the Asian sauce... More

After having dined at the Roy's at Poipu Beach on Kauai numerous times, with nothing but excellent food, and service. My wife and I were looking forward to trying the Roy's at Ka'anapali. BIG DIFFERENCE, and not for the better. The food was lackluster and poorly presented with none of the depth of flavor and texture we have become accustomed... More

My wife and I have been to Roy's many times at both the Big Island and here in Maui! Never disappoints! Food is always over the top and service outstanding. This time around the Yukon Golds went uneaten as they were cooked to death. A little surprised there was no question from the server or the person clearing the table... More

Roy's Kaanapali. Let's cut to the chase, best fish on the island. You pay for it, but you're getting extremely generous portions, super fresh, always perfectly cooked, accented with at least two sauces and oils. Sure the Roy's on the mainland may have not met your expectations, but that's because Roy sold them to Outback. The Roy's in Hawaii are... More

The hostess was friendly. The seating was timely. We went to the bar before because we were early for our reservation. The bartender was not friendly. He did not take our order promptly. He was not very busy. We were seated. Barry was our waiter. He was exceptional! Request Barry! His support staff was also excellent! The food was incredible.... More

Welcome to Roy's Kaanapali! Since opening the original "Roy's" in Hawaii Kai in 1988, I have set out to explore "new directions," blending classic European cooking techniques with unique influences of Asia and the Pacific, guided only be the freshest local ingredients and my own sense of freedom. Every night our menu features a selection of "Roy's Classics," which are menu items that have been favorites since the beginning. These are noted with the "Y" symbol. In addition to these Classic dishes, Executive Chef Ryan Ferguson along with Sous Chefs John Balisco, Marc Urquidi, & Jessie Anacleto offer a unique selection of seasonal items & nightly specials. Cooking has been my life... Thank you for making it part of yours. Roy Yamaguchi, Chef/Founder
