Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated a special occasion at The Roycroft with a party of 20 people. The service exceeded my expectations and we all loved it. Food was of good quality and very appealing. Staff went out of their way to make sure our needs were met!"

  • "I was there with others for a Sunday brunch. Not many food choices. For example 3 cold salads and for bread only mini muffins or bagels. Long, long wait for omelettes at certain times (25 minutes for me). Very nice building, some classical musicians playing music for us. Waitresses were attentive."

  • "I absolutely loved this inn. Starting with the old huge wooden engraved door, the fireplace. I was very impressed with the ambiance; it is a family friendly restaurant, welcoming children as well. The brunch selection was incredible vast. Where else can you get an omelet to order and beef roast, garlic mashed potatoes (the best I've ever had). And the awesome french toast with a whipped cream infused with sherry or something sooo delicious you wish you could lick the bowl. I can't wait to take the "girls" out for brunch. Every occasion will be spent at the Roycroft Inn. Wait staff was quite busy so I gave it 4 stars but when she was able to get to our table she was very attentive."

  • "For my birthday the other night all I wanted was a quiet night out for a nice dinner with my husband. We decided to go to the Roycroft as we had been given a gift certificate there for our anniversary and with our first child due next month we figured it would be a while before we had a chance to use it. Due to my pregnancy I couldn't partake in the wine list but it was very impressive. Our table was comfortable and intimate and the service was excellent, very attentive without being overbearing. We enjoyed the appetizers and our waitress Lynn recommended the duck special entree to me which was Fabulous. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a quiet dinner with interesting food options without breaking the bank!"

  • "The service was very good. Food was okay. The staff in the buffet area did not seem interested or as professional as I would have expected. Food variety fair. Food quality good. Food temp fair."

  • "We had an excellent which my friends all agreed, the young lady servicing was pleasant and very accommodating, we were in a charming room and were seated promptly .... after dinner our reservations in the music room awaited us------- all and all it was a lovely evening"

  • "I took my girlfriend here for her Birthday... she ordered the Cobb Salad & I was shocked to see all the avocado in the salad was black! Way over ripe, not appropriate to serve, she had to pick it all out of her salad & set it on her bread-plate. Service was great, nice wine list & I loved the "sliver" dessert option."

  • "Being gluten intolerant, Roycroft always has several choices for me, or they will revise a dish so it is gluten free by making substitutions, etc."

  • "Great tastes, charming ambience, nice portion sizes, desert sampler was perfect, fantastic service."

  • "The Roycroft Campus is a very interesting area to visit. The Inn provides entertainment and food in keeping with the ambience of the property. Very good to notice they support local farmers."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "My husband's meal which was excellent, I had the chicken which was a little bland, the little desert trio was delicious! I love the setting and will go again for the brunch."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "The Roycroft Inn is a perfect way to wind down after checking out the arts and architecture of the Roycroft Campus and the surrounding shops and treasures in East Aurora. The architecture of each room in the Roycroft Inn is different and uniquely beautiful, and allows for a deeper look at the creative output of the Roycrofters themselves and provides a different dining atmosphere in each room. The menu is creative and varied, with several options for everyone, including those who are less adventurous eaters. The wild boar and wild game sausages are to die for, and are absolutely worth trying. The cod with vanilla bean hollandaise is a rich yet light seafood dish that merits after-dinner discussion."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We've had some wonderful dining here over the years but more recently have found the food really inconsistent - e.g., ask for a taste of the seafood bisque, which can be out of this world, or bland. The ambiance, however, is charming, whether inside the arts and crafts style dining rooms, or especially on the veranda on a warm summer night."

  • "Came for Sunday brunch. The entire dining area is charming, loved the fresh flowers on the tables and nice linens. The warmth of the fireplace was inviting as was the music by the quartet. Excellent service. The waitress and staff were friendly and attentive, filling up our coffee cups without having to ask and clearing off dirty dishes immediately. The presentation and variety of food was impressive. Some important areas, such as the carving station, needed to be better as both meats being served were dry and bland. The dessert of my choice was a chocolate cake (made with beer?) which I found dry and tasteless and an apple filling that tasted like it came from a can. Great ambiance but attention needed in some food areas."

  • "I take a special friend (she's like a mom to me) to the Roycroft "Brunch" every year for her birthday during March which she looks forward to. We always happen to sit at the same table every year too! The food is wonderful, service is great and the Roycroft ambience makes it seem special! See you next year!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The entire experience was wonderful. Our severs were very attentive without being intrusive, The soups (shallot and mushroom/French onion) were excellent, the brie salad was incredible, the truffle chips are a signature app and the steaks and grilled vegetables were layered with thoughtful flavors and masterful handling. Truly a gem."

  • "I wish they had a gluten free menu. Our waitress was very nice and the atmosphere lovely."

  • "Always a great spot for lunch. Love indoors for the cold weather months and love the veranda in the warm weather months! Service was excellent!"

  • "We had dinner and breakfast at the Roycroft; we also stayed at the Inn. Service at both meals was excellent! I have to highlight that the timing between courses, drinks, etc. was perfect, in a day and age where 90% of the time your entree arrives while you're still finishing your salad and a check comes before your dessert. This doesn't happen at the Roycroft. We actually had time to breath between courses, and enjoy a cocktail from the bar while nibbling on delicious homemade cheddar chive bread. Having dinner in the library on a cold March night was so enjoyable. We sat right next to a roaring fire. The food was very good. Nothing crazy or adventurous food-wise, but when the standards are done so well, there's no need. Will return!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We live in the area and had not been to the Roycroft Inn for many years. The setting is absolutely beautiful, we sat on an enclosed porch and it was lovely. Thought it might be cold, but they have done their job insulating well for winter month dining. The menu was not overwhelming as some are, but there were more than sufficient choices. Food selected was superbly prepared and portions generous. Desserts are homemade which is a real treat and they offer a smaller version for those who want a sweet taste and not a massive serving. There was music in an adjacent bar area that could be heard, but was not overpowering or annoying. Actually added a pleasant touch. Service was impeccable. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "This restaurant has it all! Great charm, great food (we came for brunch as a group), service was great and very accommodating of our larger group, and we had a wonderful time."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "This was my third trip to the Roycroft Inn for brunch. The food was delicious and the service was terrific! I especially enjoyed the smoked salmon and pickled vegetable selections. My dining partner gave a thumbs up to the waffles and apple crisp. Our servers were enthusiastic and available, but not overwhelming. My one criticism is that the buffet lacked a hot vegetable dish. I think that a vegetable medley or stir fry would have been a nice accompaniment to the meats and fabulous roasted potatoes. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Out table of 12 guests raved about our brunch. The food was fantastic, the ambience was super and the servers were super. Special kudos to the guys carving, making the omelets and pasta dishes. We will be back."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Beautiful location that is rich with history. The atmosphere offers a charming look into the past. Quaint and relaxing ambiance. We loved the brunch selection. There was something for everyone - Pasta Station, Omlette Station, Great selection of brunch favorites and yummy desserts. Try the Poinsetta instead of a Mimosa - very tasty! This is a perfect setting for a large group to enjoy a meal together."

  • "Everything was impressive and the food was excellent. The only thing I would change would be to add a salad bar."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "We arrived on time for our reservations and were seated right away. Not all restaurants do that well and we appreciated the prompt attention. The food was great and I enjoyed the fact they featured smoked samon and also corned beef in their brunch line up. All the brunch items were labeled, warm and easy to serve."

  • "I had heard of the Roycroft but never tried it because it is quite a distance away. It was a great choice. Set in. 1905 building the atmosphere is great. No rushing you in and out of the restaurant. Everything was paced to make it a dining experience and not fast food. The meal was excellent and well presented"

  • "Excellent setting and very romantic. A splash of history along with great food. We consider the Roycroft as a gem for the area."

  • "My husband and I chose to dine at the Roycroft for Valentine's Day. We were married there 10 years ago so this seemed like the perfect option. I had the Surf & Turf and my husband ordered the Salmon Filet- both were amazing. The Baked Brie appetizer to start was unusual (it had a passionfruit glaze in the center) and fantastic. The wine list is so elaborate and the dessert list is great in that they offer "sliver portions" of several desserts for those who filled up too much for a full-size dessert. We split a full-size Crème Brulee, which was light and perfectly-prepared. The atmosphere is classy and it was quiet. We didn't feel rushed and our server Dave was attentive but gave us a lot of space too. A perfect night!"

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our night out. Our server was very attentive and kind. The food was delectable! Loved sitting by the fire on such a blustery evening!"

  • "The Roycroft Sunday Brunch is second to none! The ambiance is laid back elegance. When you enter, you are overcome by the classic old world woodwork throughout. The layout is conducive to a feeling of an intimate restaurant. The buffet itself is a surprise at each station. On this day, there were too many offerings to choose a favorite, but I must admit to three trips for the Belgium Waffles alone. They are light and airy, the fruit sauces are flavorful and the almond whipped cream...sigh!! Another favorite was the Shrimp and Langostino Stir Fry. The breakfast station offered an open faced biscuit sandwich, which was a little difficult to eat but the Chicken Breasts in Mushroom Cream Sauce were delicious. Will definitely return!"

  • "I've been here many times, and I'm never disappointed. Tonight we had hand sausage and lobster bisque (one of my wife's favorites) to start. I had the pork, my wife had filet, both were great."

  • "We are followers of Arts & Crafts Design. As such, the Roycroft Inn has long held our interest. The ambiance in the restaurant was wonderful - inviting us to return for another meal (perhaps brunch?) at some point. Our wait staff was incredibly charming, as well as knowledgable about the dishes she was serving. The dining room was quiet and conducive to talking. The food was excellent and presented beautifully. Passing through the reception area at the end of the evening was a further delight, with its display of Arts and Crafts treasures. We would highly recommend this establishment to all travelling through or residing in the East Aurora area. As an Arts & Craft follower, you'll only be that much more pleased"

Love the complimentary drink, my favorite was the poinsettia! Everyone left feeling full and happy.we have already made plans to return."

  • "This was our first time dining there. The food was outstanding and so was the service. Very beautiful place with lots of ambiance. Quiet, no stress. My only very minor complain is why no dress code? We had Duck Dynasty sitting next to us; hunting outfits, baseball caps. Can't they go down the street to fast food?"
