    I have been dining at Roy's for over twenty years and was very disappointed with the Kaanapali restaurant. The upscale ambiance of Roy's has been turned into a golf course club house. Other patrons were dressed like they had just come from the beach, wearing t-shirts and flip flops and baseball caps backwards. For the prices we are willing to pay for a dining experience at Roy's, the management should rethink which direction the restaurant should go.

    Service was remarkable! Our server had recommended the seafood risotto and it did not disappoint. The scallops melted in my mouth, the baby clams and shrimp were delicious, and the risotto was perfectly cooked. Everyone at our table had amazing courses as well. Highly recommend the seared Ahi, the filet, and the mahi mahi with the squid ink fettucini. Families, couples, and everyone in between will love it here! So ono! Mahalo to the chefs, kitchen and dining staff!

Celebrating our anniversary, we received a free dessert presented so lovely, we took a picture! We would definitely return and look forward to visiting Roy's other locations in the future.

    Our first trip to this Roy's location but probably our 10th visit to a Roy's restaurant. As always, the food was great. However, we skipped desert as it was so hot in the restaurant. Most ladies were obviously overheating as they either pulled their long hair over their shouler or put it up. We couldn't wait to get out of there. With every table paying from $100 to $300, you'd think they'd put the air conditioning on. We won't return to this location. Bummer!

    Went to the Maui Roy's expecting it to be similar to quality to the many other Roy's we have visited. It's not. This Roy's was created out of the former golf course restaurant at this site and still resembles it in quality and appearance. We went for lunch and saw nothing of the menu items we love at other Roy's locations. Very few fish choices and were pretty standard fair. My guest and I had the spicy ahi poke which was good, but common to poke you can buy at nearby Safeway. Another guest had pulled pork sandwich and another the fish and chips. Nothing was memorable. Service was spotty, with the servers son doing far better than the dad. Drink orders and requests for things like salt had to be done more than once. Disappointing.

    Roy's has fine food and a nice ambience. The food is quite good, drinks a bit too strong (it's nice they don't skimp on alcohol but when ordering a tropical cocktail you want to taste the flavors and not just the alcohol). Recommend the PuPu Canoe (the ribs and Ahi Poke are excellent). Food is very high quality.

    Dined on 9/15/2014
    This particular location lacks the same ambience and special attention to detail that the other Roys have, and I've been to at least 6 other locations. I did expect the menu to vary, but the restaurant itself looked very plain and the tables were nothing special. They did have some of the typical dishes and the service was stellar, but you just felt like you were in a regular restaurant. It's also not well marked and located on a golf course so there was no feeling of being on Maui or even being remotely near the ocean. I was looking forward to dinner, and it was a disappointment.

    Had our 25th anniversary dinner here and decided to come back for our 30th. The new location is awesome on the golf course. It adds to the romance of the occasion. We both had the filet. Best we ever had, We have eaten at Roy's is Pebble Beach, Ca. and this was much better. Great place to have a cocktail at sunset at the bar. We will be back again for our 35th anniversary for sure

    Roy's is always top notch when it comes to their delicious Asion Fusion cuisine, and the wait staff is terrific. Only thing is, this great restaurant just can't compete with the true west-facing restaurants for sunset. Looking out over a golf course really does nothing for us. The accoustics could stand to be improved somehow as noise travels quickly in the main dining room, making it necessary to shout to your dining companions.

    We have been to Roy's in San Francisco and two other islands. Roy's at Kaanapali is by far the best. Appetizers, main courses and dessert were excellent. Service was perfect. Although Merimans has the dining room with the best view on Maui, Roy's serves the best meals and does so at a much more reasonable price.

    This is a great place to go when you want something to eat but don’t want a lot! For appetizer we had Maui onion soup. I did not like it. It was too salty. We also had a crab cake appetizer. There were two tiny cakes that tasted okay. The main course was nice. It was a small seafood dish nicely decorated on the plate with two sides that I could hardly see. High fives to the chef for serving up a wonderful dish! This is a rather expensive restaurant with average prices for wine and beer.

    Roy's always provides a wonderful dining experience with scrumptious cuisine and impeccable service. This particular location is settled over a golf course but the view of the ocean is blocked by buildings. The service was quick and efficient with excellent suggestions on the menu. The food was well prepared and for a fine dining restaurant the portions are generous. Overall an excellent meal and well worth the stop if you are on this side of Maui.

    Food choices included too much spicy food, which is a barrier to those with "good taste." Food choices limited (surprise!). Price was high for what was received, considering the location, no where near Hawaiian waters, but far back away from water on the other side of a golf course, next to a busy road. Very noisy, with no seating not near large group tables, with "tipsy" patrons being sure all friends hear what is being sai and everyone else within 20 meters.

    The appetizers were great but the entrees were bland. Then, the waitress never came back. I swear it was 20 minutes before we saw her again checking on another table. We complained to the manager and she took my husbands meal off the bill. This is a typical tourist trap. There are too many other good places in Maui to endure bad service.
