    When making your reservation make sure you ask to be seated in the main dining room as this has a lovely ambience. This is the second time we were seated in the annex and although quiet it .lacks any atmosphere at all. Wait staff were really nice and food was great

    I love Roy's. This is the third year we have selected them as one of our Magical Dining experiences, and they do not disappoint! from the lobster potstickers to the filet mignon to the chocolate soufflé, everything was excellent! The potstickers were crisp, and the sauce was amazing. Some of the other "magical" places do not include any sides with their filet. Roy's has mashed potatoes, asparagus and broccolini. As with all their dinners, we were served edame before we ordered. And the melting chocolate soufflé is a guest favorite because it is incredibly good. I highly recommend Roy's for both 'magical dining" and for any night out.

    The service was impeccable. The wine great and the Asian style ribs to die for. But the mahi mahi was dry, the Thai fried rice was awful and the sea scallops were just ok. Yes, we were disappointed overall. As a result it was overpriced.

    I chose this restaurant for a business dinner after a lengthy search of Orlando restaurants. I was hesitant to go with a chain, but I had previously had a good experience with Roy's in Baltimore and one in Orlando many years prior. As it turns it out, I am very happy I chose it this time! The service was impeccable. They were present but unobtrusive throughout, they called me by name, and the dinner recommendations were perfect. I had only eaten seafood on previous visits, but this time we both had steaks and they were cooked to perfection. I enthusiastically recommend this restaurant!

    We recently enjoyed a night at Roy's as a result of the Orlando Magical Dining promotion. The food was great, as was the service. Other restaurants we have visited provided lesser quality food and service because of the promotion. So happy to see that Roy's understands the value of enticing new patrons...

    Decor was nice, food seemed inconsistent and overall service was incredibly SLOW. Meal for two, it took nearly 3 hours for us to eat from Drink order through Dessert. Appetizers (lobster pot-stickers) were a miss, and tasted like over-fried frozen food. the Salmon dinner, however, was exquisite and totally fit for foodie. May have to try it out again, but not sure its worth it given the price.

    We had the magical dining menu. It was great although our proteins (mahi mahi and filet) were a touch overcooked. Standouts were the short rib app, filet, hawaiian martini, and choc soufflé. We were right near the kitchen and expeditor which was loud but we didn't mind. If you want a romantic/more quiet night request a booth or away from kitchen. Service was pretty much perfect.

    Roys has a great happy hour...unless you are in the dining room where you cannot do happy hour. Big disappointment. Service was great. Food: Lobster potstickers- not so good. Rib app- very good. Salmon entrée & filet were very good, mahi tasted old and strong. Dessert chocolate souffle was divine. Overall: Not so sure we would go back. Okay but with many dining options in the area, probably go somewhere else

    We ordered off of the Magical Dining Menu, a special menu for the month of September. While the food was good, the appetizers and dessert were exponentially more original and flavorful than the entrees. Our complaints tend to echo other reviewers--the restaurant was very loud, to the point that it was difficult to converse with my dining companions, and there seemed to be an excessive number of servers attending to our meager party of four.

    The Mahi Mahi choice on the magical dining menu was bland. Would not recommend. Also, they bring only one souflet for two of us to share for dessert. We will not go back for dinner. The happy hour appetizers and drinks would be the way to go at this restaurant. There are too many other great choices on sand lake road to dine at

Not only was every aspect of our meal, server and experience exceptional, but I was watching all of the servers and members of the team and I was completely impressed. This was not my first visit to Roy's and I will say, that whenever I visit Orlando I try to get there. It's ALWAYS exceptional and this visit was even more! Thank you for continuing to provide excellence in every area!

    The Roy's restaurant atmosphere is a great place for a date. This was our first time visiting this restaurant, we had a great time and enjoy the delicious Magical dinning 3 courses menu. For entrèes we choose "HIBACHI STYLE GRILLED SALMON" and "ROY'S CLASSIC ROASTED MACADAMIA NUT CRUSTED MAHI MAHI". Wow the food was so delicious and the waitress was so attentive at all times, we really recommend this restaurant to others....Bon Appetit!!!

    We show up at Roy's often are are never disappointed, but it is also our go-to place for special family celebrations. We celebrated a family birthday with 7 family members and once again - it was over the top special. (Only downside is the noise level for the grandparents- hard to have a conversation). Food - terrific Service - over the top Special birthday touches - appreciated Roy's is in our neighborhood and it is a gem and just consistently excellent from beginning (valet) to end (valet).

    Whenever I'm in a city with a Roy's, I have to have a meal there. Been to the Roy's in Orlando 3 times, and have always left very satisfied. They are great with our girls food allergies, very accommodating. I love how they bring out the kids appetizer quickly, almost as soon as we sit down, makes them feel special and keeps them happy until their entries arrive.

    Roy's is OK....good quality food and well run, but the Hawaiian theme loses its appeal when it's jammed at you by over-trained, disingenuous waitrons pushing overpriced items. Not that I should expect anything else, since they are a corporate operation that obviously pays consultants a lot to instruct the staff on how to develop relationships with guests, then talk them into poi-encrusted mahi potstickers with a mango-balsamic reduction..."MY PERSONAL FAVORITE!!".
