We invite you to join us at Roy"s Beach House at Turtle Bay Resort where Hawaii’s royalty swam and relaxed with the turtles. With sweeping views accentuated by two stunning reef points as a backdrop, Roy’s Beach House guests will dine like royalty in an open- air pavilion that offers an authentic sense of place.
The concept and design for the new 140-seat open –air restaurant are a reflection of Roy’s love for white sandy beaches and the ocean. Roy has fond memories of potluck gatherings on the beach with a variety of his family’s favorite dishes- a memory he hopes to create for you at the Beach House.

So please come and indulge in one of our spectacular hand crafted cocktails or choose from a selection of ice cold local beers while you discover the fresh ingredients and outstanding seafood, expertly prepared by our local chefs that have made Roy’s famous.

I used to love Roys but it’s really gone downhill. Very mediocre food for the prices. Food trucks are better

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

Have been to a few Roy’s and this is hands down the best. View from every seat. A lot of thought out into each recipe and cane out to us perfect visually and taste. Chick pea roll, lamb and chocolate soufflé were our favorites. Downer is how expensive it is but hey your most likely on vacation so spoil yourself.

2nd visit. 1st was perfect. 2nd visit again had excellent service but our calamari appetizer was like chewing rubber bands (also about that size). After 2 bites we sent it back. No argument, only apologies. Learned 2 more were sent back after ours. The Brussels sprouts appetizer had sprouts that were too large (over 1” long). They were good but more than a mouthful each bite.

Ahi appetizer and large greens salad😋😋

We went here for dinner to watch the sunset. Unfortunately, it rained; however, we did not get wet because of the umbrellas and roof. The service was quite good, and the waiter was attentive to detail making special arrangements to not have garlic in the mashed potatoes. The steak was cooked more like well done instead of medium but was succulent. The scallops were flavorful, and the chocolate lava cake was spectacular.

Our 50th anniversary
We ate many appetizers “Tapas style”.
Each course was delicious and perfectly prepared. Ended with Chocolate Soufflé (which wasn’t a soufflé at all, but more like what others call “Lava Cake”) which made for a delicious ending. Server was most helpful and brought us a slice of lemon cake to recognize our anniversary.
Also we got great table overlooking beach.
WELL DONE👍😀

Great service and ambience. Superior Mai Tai. Macadamia encrusted Opah with side vegetables tasteless and could not even be rescued with sriracha sauce. Very disappointing when compared to previous dinners we have had at Roy’s on other islands.

The setting on the north shore is just stunning. The musician was talented and added to the ambiance. The servers were the MOST attentive I have ever seen (even over high end restaurants back home in Chicago). The staff made my husband feel incredibly special for his 40th birthday. The pineapple martini was to die for, and the pineapple upside down cake was everything (searching for recipes to TRY to recreate this at home, but I know we will fail and just need to come back again)! The fish was not the best I’ve ever had, but it was fresh and the flavors mixed well. Thank you to Roy’s for a lovely birthday celebration. See you again in two years (we hope)!

The food was not good. The fried calamari was cold and overdone - too difficult to chew - had to send it back. The croutons in the romaine salad were stale and worst of all the scallops were seared on only one side and too seared at that. I will not be going back.

I always enjoy eating at any of the Roy’s chain of restaurants, and this one, too, at Turtle Bay was fantastic. Service was exceptional (thanks, Chris and Keith) and the food was delicious. Like most Roy’s restaurants, prices are a bit high, but in the end, always worth it for quality food and service. I wouldn’t normally frequent this location, but if staying on this side of the island, Roy’s Beach House is an excellent stop.

The Beach house version is more casual than at Ko O’Liina on the south shore of Oahu, but the food is equally good. The open-air dining experience right on the beachside makes for a spectacular view. Highly recommend.

Lovely location, good food and impressive timber decor put this restaurant into a class above most on the North Shore. However, having been recommended to come for the "view and sunset", we were disappointed to find the view was blocked by drinkers standing in the way of the view, past sunset. We were told they were not even diners.
On the service side, the place fairly hummed with more staff than knew what to do with themselves apart from trying to appear busy. This detracted from an ambience of relaxed dining and moreover created a sense of frantic busyness that was distracting and hard to justify, given so many staff.
Having recently spent a similarly-priced evening at the revolving restaurant in Waikiki without fault or blemish, Roy's didn't live up to the hype, leaving food quality as the possibly saving plus.
