Hawaii Regional Cuisine
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.

We had a great night at Roy’s, everything was great. The only miss was the panna cotta dessert two people ordered it and unfortunately didn’t enjoy at all.
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!

Hostess at the front counter seemed like she was having a off day. Other staff was very pleasant. Our waiter (Cole) definitely earned his tip. He was very helpful when recommending what dishes to try.

The setting of Roy's at Turtle Bay is lovely, right at the beach, and nicely conceived decor. Food was primarily seafood--fine, but nothing exceptional and a bit pricey for what it was. The pineapple upside down cake dessert is fantastic however and worth the calories.

My wife and I went for our anniversary. There was only availability for 9:30 (they closed at 10 that night) and from the second we walked in we felt super rushed by our server who wanted to get off of work. We could hear him talking with other servers about how he hoped we would eat fast. I ordered a soda and it was never refilled. When he brought us the dessert menu (right after our entrees came out) he told us that the two most popular would take 30-45 minutes to prepare and then recommended something else. I should note that we’re pretty fast eaters, we don’t take our time at restaurants and we didn’t even order an appetizer. The food was just okay for the price. We’ll probably give it another try if we’re back in the area as I feel like we couldn’t even enjoy the restaurant due to feeling pressure to hurry and get out of there.

We were a family of5 with a baby; we made a reservation I asked for a table on patio he quickly set us up a table on the beach front; I believe he was the owner; amazing service right there!

Server was great; food was pricey; portion sizes were moderate size; overall 4/5.

We ate at Roy’s our last night in Hawaii. We had recommendations and it did not disappoint! The cocktails are amazing and the food and service are superb ! Our waitress made suggestions and they accommodated special requests. Roy’s was the dining highlight of our trip and we ate all our meals out because we were at a hotel.

Ate there for Christmas dinner. The menu was Prix Fixe . Wife ordered the Red snapper and it did not taste good. She was able to send it back but due to her seafood allergies she was limited on selections. She ended up with roast chicken with dressing and was still very disappointed with the bland chicken and dry dressing. I had the sushi and it was delicious. You can tell the fish was fresh and sushi grade. Fortunately the staff was amazing. They were very attentive and catered to our request. They made the experience overall Great.
