Way too noisy, staff was rushed, food was so-so to mediocre, way below the standards of various previous visits and now priced too high.

Food wasn’t excellent! My husband had the ahi which was perfect. I had the butterfish and braised short rib combo. I think the rib needed more sauce but was otherwise wonderful. We done normally eat dessert but we had the flourless chocolate soufflé which was incredible. Everything was A little pricey but wasn’t worth it.

Everything was really good and my steak was cooked to perfection which is not always the case when I dine out. Also the manager came by the table to make sure our experience was great.

Lobster and sea bass were excellent. Short rib was a little tough and undercooked. Lava cake is a must have.

We celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary and Roy's did not disappoint. Food was excellent, service was friendly, courteous and tailored to our specific needs. Roy's is definitely at the top of our list for those very special occasions. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Our service and food were truly outstanding. Our server was also a bartender, and she was simply the best. While we appreciate being able to eat outside, the noise from the street was a little irritating. But if I am at Jax Beach again, I will definitely reserve a table at Roy's. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Dinners included the MahiMahi and the Shellfish sampler. Both were excellent. Portions were just right. For appetizer we had the lobster potstickers..they were outstanding. Service was excellent. The aloha hour mentioned on website was a little confusing, did not apply to dinner unless you were seated at the bar. The server immediately notified the manager of our confusion on this and manager discounted a couple drinks on our behalf. Good and proper care by manager and server. The noise level in this restaurant, as seems the case in most Florida restaurants, is high. But after awhile it was not noticeable. Pricey, but the quality of food and service are worth it. Will certainly visit again.

Was so looking forward to this dinner. We went to Roy’s in Maui 20 years ago. It was one of the best meals ever. So when I saw there was a Roy’s in Jacksonville we had to go. Such a disappointment. It took 10 minutes for the server to come by to get a drink order. Then after another 30 minutes the apps came out and my wife’s was wrong. Then 30 minutes later the correct one came out. So an hour and a half into dinner the entrees came out. They were just ok. The chocolate soufflé was excellent. The manager came over twice and apologized. That was nice. She handled it well. She comped the app and the second visit to
Our table gave us a $25 gift card. She was great. We saw another table wait as long as we did and they ended up just boxing their entree and taking it home. Hopefully this was due to things opening back up from Covid. I’m sure finding staff is difficult right now. Maybe it will get better soon.

Chose to try Roy’s as recommended by the local’s. We all were in the mood for Tuna and it was amazing. The sushi grade fits we received were excellent and tops. The appetizers were great and the wine list fair, but priced very reasonably. I wish I was closer to Roy’s as I’d visit more often, but highly recommend the restaurant. I felt that the prices were slightly higher than i would have expected, but in the end , the quality of the meal won out.

We were unable to talk because of a table of 12(at least) with 6 or 7 loud and unruly children. We asked to be moved to the main dining room, next to the front door and our waitress, Anna G, was very helpful in getting it done . There was was or edemame provided w/o costing more. We were surprised at that. Meals were enjoyed but so much more costly than our last visit.

Anytime a seafood sampler is ordered, and only 1 of 3 items is served, tells you there is a problem. Then, when I told the waiter, he thought I was joking, and told him to find me the shrimp tails. Five minutes later, the other two items were brought out on a separate plate.

Not going back.

The Easter brunch was probably one of the worst meals we've had out. Ice cold, over salted and took an extremely long time. 4 out of 5 of us had to send our meals back. Disappointed overall.

1) Make sure you make a reservation!

The food was absolutely delicious! We had the bao buns, lobster pot stickers, braised ribs, ahi tuna and fish. Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The service was pretty good as well.
Try the drink specials- they were really good!
Dressy casual atmosphere.

Roy’s has long been one of my favorites. The food is beyond scrumptious, cooked to perfection! The service and attention to detail by the staff is top notch! The only draw back for me personally is that they are an hour’s drive away, but Roy’s remains our go to place for special occasions!

The food was marginal at best. While I do not mind spending money on fine dining, this was not fine dining and ridiculously overpriced! The service was despicable. No one in my party of eight will be returning.

Very disappointed with the dinner we had. The food looked like it was sitting under some heating lamps for an hour. The sauce on top was almost a solid. Expect better from Roy’s. Especially since our bill for 4 people was the typical $500 which is fine if the food and service were worth it. I have a good grade for service because our waiter was doing his best but just had too many tables.

I've always loved Roy's. During COVID with Florida being open, Roy's is a great place to eat because they keep distance between the tables. Felt very safe to eat out.
