Great experience! I ordered the the salmon and black eyed peas dish & the peas could of been cooked a little bit longer because they weren’t that tender but other than that-I plan on coming back!!

This experience was phenomenal. The food was absolutely delicious. The value for the atmosphere and quality of the food is unmatched. I look forward to returning to try their brunch menu and other dinner items as well. The waitstaff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Owen waited on us and I was very impressed. Best restaurant in Polaris, hands down.

We had dinner at the Royce for the first time on sweetest day! We were told it was a wonderful restaurant and boy was that an understatement!!! From the food quality, service, prices and time it took for our food to come out... we were totally impressed! The food was outstanding, the wait for our entrees was only 15 minutes including our appetizers. We sat down at 7:05 and were done eating by 7:55...Wow! The prices for the quality were beyond reasonable. Our bill including drinks was less than $100.00. We never eat out for less than $200.00 when comparing this restaurant to other restaurants in its genre...Definitely will be going back! Plus, I forgot to add , it’s ambiance was beautiful! From the decor to the music selection was totally outstanding!!!!

Very impressed! Service was amazing and the food was excellent! I had the fried chicken sandwich. The only reason it is not 5 stars is because I felt it needed a bit more slaw to bring out the flavor. My husband had the salmon it was amazing, perfectly cooked and seasoned just right. Our drinks were amazing as well! I had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. I’m a wine snob and some of the best SB are from that region so I was happy to try a glass. My husband ordered the “Just Finishing Up” cocktail and it was on point. Will definitely be back.

A very enjoyable evening. The service was very good, we loved the atmosphere, and he food was outstanding. The cornbread with pepper jelly was very good. I had the short ribs with creamy grits and veggie chow chow, loved it, and would order it again. My wife had the salmon with black eyed peas and she very much enjoyed it. And it was gluten free. I recommend The Royce and look forward to going back.

This was our first time at The Royce. Our waiter Collin was so friendly and loved the recommendations he made for drinks and food. I got the sea bass and my husband got the New York strip. We both would get it again. We will definitely be back next time bringing friends.

The food was ok. Not great , not bad ... just good. Sorry. I am a bit of a foodie from New Orleans , and the short ribs were pretty bland. Again , it’s ok. Not bad. The biscuits seam in butter but were good. My husband got the Cuban sandwich which he said was ok. Again , not great , not bad. Queena was a very delightful server. We enjoyed her very much.

I’ve been waiting to dine in at this restaurant but wanted to give it some time after it had been open for a while. We were greeted and seated promptly. From the hostess to our server, they were all very friendly professional and attentive. The manager stopped by our table as well as many others to check on us. This is a restaurant I would highly recommend. We went for lunch on a Saturday late afternoon. My cousin and I had heard mixed reviews but I must say we were extremely pleased with our dining experience. Loved the cornbread biscuits. Had the beef short rib and grits which was delicious in a very nice size portion. I don’t know what the secret ingredient is in their iced tea mixture but it was very tasty as well. I will definitely be going back again.

Great place for a girls nite. We had a great time with great service. Great drinks and great food. We sat in the enclosed patio. It was really nice out there and very cozy. I really liked the simplicity of the menu. Great options and not complicated at all. I highly suggest the Cornbread Biscuits for an appetizer. They are delicious.

Great atmosphere, top notch service, amazing cocktails and food was a 10! All the recommendations our server gave us were spot on. Loved the roasted cauliflower starter. Sea Bass and Salmon were both perfect and the GF brownie was delicious. While service has been lacking at many other restaurants lately they were superb. Will definitely be back.

Great new place at Polaris. Restaurant has a Short North or German Village feel even though it is in a commercial mall complex. Walter, the owner, was so accommodating and took care to make sure we had a good dining experience. Our server, Owen, was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and prompt. Looking forward to visiting again and will highly recommend to others!
