Dinner tonight was amazing. The service, atmosphere and service where out of this world. It was me seriously the best last night in Maui.

Everything was great except the food. Short ribs were tasteless. Fish was very fishy tasting, for lack of a better word.

Don’t ever stop the miso butter fish. Love to see a small filet and scallops combo.

We love Roy’s. It is consistently amazing so whenever we are in Hawaii we go. The pineapple martini was the perfect island drink and we ordered 4 dishes from the pupu side of the menu and it was the perfect amount of food for two people to share. Thanks Roy!!

I’ve dine here several times but this time I’ve noticed all prices went up. Too expensive for the size of servings. I’m disappointed

This was such a good spot! Our server made everything sound delicious and it actually was. I’m definitely coming back next time I’m in Maui for the butterfish! YUM.

Roy’s has a major “gift card problem” that is placing return customers in a very bad situation. All the Roy’s restaurants that are in Hawaii are now a separate business from those on the mainland - yet it is the Mainland Roy’s business that maintain a mailing list and mail out Roy’s discount coupons. The gift cards sold at a Roy’s on the mainland and the discount coupons mailed by Roy’s business back on the mainland are NOT VALID in Roy’s in Hawaii - even though the cards and coupons don’t tell you this. We mostly dine at Roy’s when we are in Hawaii - yet receive coupons supposedly good at any and all Roy’s location. This places the customer in a predicament when dining at a Roy’s in Hawaii. Booooo on you Roy’s! Get your business straightened out! Food, ambiance & service where still very good.

Great service but food is just ok. No wow factor.
Food is overpriced. Was expecting to have mind blown. Disappointing.

Our waiter was very good but the service from the bar was very slow. Took is a very long time to get drinks once they were ordered. The restraunt was not that busy at 6pm. We would of had more cocktails but as it was we were finished with our meal about the time we got our second one. Each time it took about 20 minutes or more to get our drinks!

We go to Roy's at least once when visiting Maui. Service is always great. Food we ordered is normally great although this time Short Rib was bit on the dried side. Other than that, we enjoyed out meal very much.

First, let me say that the food here is excellent. Expensive, but most of the fine dining options on the island are. When we arrived at the restaurant and gave the young hostess our name and reservation time, she replied that there were 2 groups ahead of us. I thought that was an unusual reply; instead of the usual thank you for reserving with us, we’ll seat you as soon as possible. The 2 groups ahead of us were seated quickly which made us happy as we we very hungry given the time change after flying in from Connecticut earlier that day. A few minutes later another group arrived and after waiting for about a minute, they were promptly seated. I was not happy, but given how quickly the other 3 groups were seated, I figured our wait would not be much longer. After a few more minutes passed, I asked the hostess how long our wait would be. She said she had no idea. Then, when I inquired about the group that was seated before us, she refused to answer my questions regarding their reservation status. Hungry, I pointed to one of the open tables and asked to be seated there. Instead, we were seated a a less desirable table for some unknown reason. The assistant manager came over to the table and apologized for us being seated late. I told her it was not the length of the wait, but how it occurred that bothered us. She said she would inquire. 5 minutes later, she came back to the table, said she reviewed the surveillance tapes and called me a liar. I was very upset and told her that I didn’t lie and that she should take a second look. At the end of our meal, she came over to apologize for upsetting me and offered to comp our entire meal. Well, she wound up totally botching the apology and in the process called me a liar for the second time. We refused her comp offer and paid our check with a good tip as the waiter did a fine job. Extremely poor customer service from start to finish. I will go back to Roy’s, but never to this particular location.

Loved the mixture of flavors of our fish, the meatloaf and, dare I admit, the molten lava chocolate cake. Tremendous service. Great view onto the golf course at Kaanapali.

This has been our favorite restaurant on Maui since we discovered it on our honeymoon 20 years ago. Our recent visit was to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Roy’s continues to provide a beautiful ambiance with phenomenal service. The food is both creative and delicious. They also provided us with a sweet anniversary card and beautiful anniversary decor on the dessert

Overlooked steak twice - location has moved to a run down old golf course restaurant. No view. Food was average at best; way overpriced, there are a 100 better options on Maui other than this.
