Great food quality and excellent service. We were celebrating a birthday and they made the occasion special with a table birthday sign and complementary celebration dessert in a lovely plate!

Super expensive and small portions. They also tend to cancel your reservation rather than check you in... don’t know if this was on purpose but it happened 3 times.

Service was phony...addressed as Mr and Mrs...not appreciated.. should have not assumed...may have been with a female colleague or someone else. My wife was insulted.
Food was ok, not up to the price.

This was our first visit to Roy’s Beach House at Turtle Bay Resort. It was a short walk from our hotel. We really enjoyed the salmon poké with avocado and won ton chips. The petite filet mignon was the best ever. So tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. Always order their misoyaki butterfish at any of Roy’s restaurant- so delicious! The vegetables served with it was a little too vinegary for me though.
The hot lava soufflé with vanilla ice cream and the slice of birthday cake gave the right touch to the end of our celebration.
They were busy but they kept assuring us to take our time. Didn’t feel rushed to end our evening.
The wait staff were very attentive. Never had an empty glass waiting for a refill.
Overall a very nice evening to remember!

Beautiful place. Staff as one might expect. The entree was okay. We had calamares. The main was a disgrace for the meat. The filet mignon at itself was fine. Why does the chef ruin it with so much spices? Even though I requested to be poor with the spicing, the fine meat was splattered with all kinds of stuff. In that way you don't realy taste the filet. What a pity.

Cannot say enough great things about Roy's at Turtle Bay. I took my wife here for our first anniversary, and really wanted it to be special. We enjoy fine dining, but stepping it down just a bit for something equally as delicious and special but a tad more casual seemed a good idea. We sat right by the beach (which they'll give you if you ask in advance when making a reservation), and ordered the curried Brussel sprouts, the kampachi, the sea bass and the filet. They change the menu often so perhaps not all of that will be on yours, but all of it was incredible. I think the curried Brussel sprouts were one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten. Service was impeccable. We went the next day for lunch, which was great as well.

We had great service, there was a singer there who was very good and really enhanced the evening with soft music.
The food was outstanding. We started off with the sashimi appetizer and the portion was 12 slices of 3 kinds of fish. I had the scallops for my meal and they were huge and very tender. The pineapple upside down cake is a must. We also tried the chocolate soufle and I love chocolate but that pineapple cake was hands down the best.

We had an awesome experience at Roy’s Beach House at Turtle Bay. The food was outstanding! The Kauai prawns were cooked to perfection, the Brussel sprouts were a hit and the Misoyaki opah (moonfish) was delicious. Service was on spot! The waiter knew the menu and was well versed to make suggestions and answer any questions we had. You can’t beat this ultimate Hawaiian dining experience. Sitting adjacent to the beautiful sandy beach with just the right amount of breeze (Mother Nature was responsible for that one). I would recommend Roy’s Beach House to anyone looking for a great casual Hawaiian dining experience.

Superb meal and service in a romantic, casual setting right next to the beach, with torches lighting the path to get there. Very attentive waitress. Had the macadamia crusted Opia fish, with potato and leak Rosti, asparagus and lobster essence, along with. Blueberry cream brûlée. Cocktails good but at the top end, price wise.

Staff all very pleasant & welcoming, but the overall food experience was just ok. We love Roy’s & I think that’s what we were expecting. The drinks & dessert were good, but turkey club sandwich wasn’t up to Roy’s standard. The turkey was fatty & the bread was dry as a bone & it didn’t have much flavor. It was a lunch stop, honestly we’ve had tastier clubs for 1/2 the price. Maybe it was an off day?

We have taken our mainland guests to Roy's Beach House because the staff and the food never disappoints, of course being next to the beach doesn't hurt either.

The food at Roy’s was superb as always with the exception of the hair in the chocolate soufflé. The service was horrific. Our waitress was “off” and checked out. My son’s meal arrived 35 minutes before the rest of the family. Next came my husbands 20 minutes early and then after waiting another 20 minutes we got dinner. We preordered soufflés but the waitress forgot to submit so we waited another 25 minutes. We waited for water constantly. We finally started asking the water waiter for drinks at which he replied it was the waitress’s job. When the manager came around to ask how our meal was we told him about the waitress and timing upon which he replied “oh”. Will not go again
