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.

Fantastic food! We loved the simultaneously upscale yet laidback ambiance of Roy’s. The service was spot on and the staff very knowledgeable about the menu items and preparation techniques. The cocktails were outstanding! Our dining experience from Pupu to desert was exceptional. Roy’s is truly worth the money if you want a dynamite experience with outrageously great food.

Loved the atmosphere here, casual and beachy! As always Roy's menu is executed perfectly. The sashimi was excellent as were the oysters. Servers were on point with menu preparation and how presented. We had a good pace to our meal as well.

First time visit to Royʻs Beach House but we got what we expect from a Royʻs name. The restaurant is right on the beach - tho that evening the winds were howling. Other than that it was still a very memorable evening with wonderful service and food. I had the Prix Fixe Braised Short Ribs dish and my wife ordered the Misoyaki Butterfish. Both dishes were very good although my wife says she prefers the same dish at Royʻs Ko Olina. I love the Hot Chocolate soufflé dessert! Weʻll go back again in the future.

Lovely spot at Turtle Bay. But our whole experience was strange. Our neighbors were sharing appetizers, which I wished we had done. Instead, we ordered cocktails and an entree each. We had barely sipped our cocktails when our plates arrived with a "careful, the plate is hot". But the food wasn't. There was no way our meals could have been anything but microwaved in that amount of time (is it prepared in a commissary?) Sadly, I ate the room temperature rice and suffered for it later. If you go, go for lunch or appetizers. Roy's, of course, has become a big corporation since we first experienced one 20 some years ago. I knew that but I expected far better food quality for the price (or any price).

Normally I love anything Roy’s, but not this time. The husbands scallops were dry and my lamb chops were over cooked. Aside from that, I will return. Sometimes even the best restaurants have bad days.

Everything about Roy's Beach House was amazing. Our server was very informative and friendly (to be honest I forgot his name.) I ordered the Teri salmon and my partner ordered the seabass. The food was delicious! I normally even order one dish for my kids to share but they even loved it so much I had to order a second one. They print and change their menus daily so that means I would have to come back and try more of their food =).

The service was good. Our waiter was very friendly. The food on the other hand was OK. The menu had changed so much my wife’s dish (Jidori Chicken) wasn’t even remotely what we’d had the last time we went there. I had the beef short rib and honestly would rather have the kale back and my mashed potatoes were just ehh. They should have informed us of a menu change or put it in the descriptions in the menu they have.

Coming from a resort town ( Jack$on Hole, WY) I am used to high prices. But at least the food is prepared well. First, service was excellent. But the meal...yikes. And the wine list...ugh. If you are staying at the resort, consider going off campus to one of the food trucks nearby...

My wife and I came to Oahu for the first time and went to Roy’s for a wonderful dinner. The food was fantastic and the service was second to none. I would highly recommend this restaurant if your looking for a nice night out.

On another note the actor from Hawaii 5-0 who plays flippa (Shawn Mokuahi Garnett) was playing guitar and even took pictures with us. Made the night that much more special.

Although the food was delicious, our experience at Roy’s Beach House was disappointing. From the moment we sat at our table, we felt like we were victims of sales pitch after sales pitch as well as being rushed through our meal, which ruined our evening! My message to Roy’s....your food sells itself! Allow your guests to enjoy a nice, relaxing meal without constant interruptions (unneeded constant water glass filling; pushing desserts before dinner has arrived, etc). If we decide to eat at Roy’s again, we’ll dine in the bar where we can dine at our own pace and less likely be subject to a pretentious dining experience.

Service was great and we would definitely return.

First off- please don’t serve a cocktail (even if it is a Mai Tai) in a water glass with a straw . We’re at Roy’s for heavens sake!

Second - When we ordered our chopped salad , our server asked what we wanted for dinner. We told her we’d wait to order but she insisted she would course our dinner . Salad was served to us within minutes. We hadn’t even finished our drink. Who wants to drink a Mai Tai with salad!? Oh well, ok. Then we no sooner finished our salad and dinner was served!!! We quickly ordered a glass of wine which didn’t come to us until our dinner was almost completely eaten. We felt way too rushed!!!

Oh and the dinner was just luke warm. This Roys was a disappointment . I’ve been to several Roys Restaurants over the years and always had excellent experiences. 😏

Everything was a so delicious. Seafood dishes were incredibly fresh. The spare ribs were perfectly seasoned. We got so full on appetizers we skipped a big entree. I highly recommend Roy’s. Also the outdoor seating made the restaurant a casual environment. Be prepared, however it is pricey.

We had dinner here on the last night of our Hawaii vacation. We'd made reservations "last-minute" (two days ahead) and could only get in after 8pm. That's LATE for us, but it was worth it! The food was outstanding - we had the filet, salmon and the nightly white fish, crab cakes, the hot chocolate lava cake, and the pineapple upside-down cake. Our teen boys enjoyed the elixer beverages. Our server was great, the outdoor seating lovely (even though it was dark and we couldn't see the ocean), and our boys were especially impressed with the lighting in the men's restroom! Who knew that was something to be impressed by...? There's no way around the price, and this is NOT how we typically dine, but if you can splurge a bit (a lot?), enjoy!
