Every time we are in Orlando, we make Roy's a destination for a fantastic dinner and never have we been disappointed. My wife and I sat at bar and the bartenders exceeded our expectations! They took the time make some recommendations from the menu and even explained differences with some local Gins. We got picture taken and received a "Roy's" frame to remember the evening. Great Job all around and that is why we return each time in town!

If you've never been to a Roy's...First of all you MUST go! The Roy's in Orlando is always Fantastic! Any Roy's nationwide is outstanding but the Orlando Roy's never disappoints! For a Hawaiian Fusion cuisine restraunt the Orlando location's Chef-Partner has a Cajun Flair to his menu! Make no mistake Everything is unbelievable!!

I've been to multiple Roys and this was the worst location I have been to. Specifically the service was slow and the food was poorly prepared. I order the bone in Ribeye medium well. The outside was charred and inside half was well done and the other half was blood red. Our appetizer of vegetable spring rolls came out 15 minutes after our kids appetizer which was 30 minutes after ordering. I enjoy a long dinner but the service was off and not in coordination with the dining experience I expected.

This was our first visit and realize that this is not our preferred type of food which is why the three star for food really for us it is two star. I must say though the service is exceptional, thank you Paul and the restaurant has quite a nice atmosphere. Glasses of wine are not cheap but very skimpy.

We had a bad experience at the Chicago, IL Roy's. When visiting Orlando we wanted to give Roy's another try. We were so happy we did. From the greeting to the waiters to the Manager it was a wonderful experience. The food is so goooood! We decided from this dining experience we were going to take our friends back for another evening. It was just as good and just as wonderful. It turned a bad experience from Chicago,IL into the BEST experience in Orlando, FL. We will visit it every year when we come back. YUMMY!

First time to Roy's on a recommendation from a local Orlando resident. Excellent location for wine enthusiast and foodies!! Starter of Kung Pao calamari followed by entrees of roasted macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi and misoyski butternut served with Four Grace Pinot Noir, and Conundrum white blend of which both were an excellent pairing with dinner. Topped the evening with a pineapple upside down cake dessert which took us over the edge! The service for the evening was exceptional, and very attentive to details!! Thank you for a very enjoyable experience!!

The Roy's franchise is a favorite of mine. However, not all of them are the same. The Orlando Roy's is a gem. Reminder of the attention and excellence from the Hawaii Kai location. Food was awesome - lots of choices and all fresh ingredients prepared well. Had some friends with me who had been at another Florida Roy's and were not a fan. This location changed that.
The Shrimp and Poke appetizers were big hits. The bone-in ribeye steak was excellent - others enjoyed the Lobster Pot Pie and the Scallops.

We visited Roy's to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. I offered her a choice of five 'nice' restaurants and she chose Roy's. Great choice! James , our waiter, was wonderful. He was outgoing, personable, attentive, and one step ahead of us all evening. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The prosciutto wrapped shrimp with grits was a big hit (we passed bites all around the table). Try the chocolate soufflé - you will enjoy! Although their website doesn't mention it, they do have a kids menu for young folks not into fancy food.

The food was cooked well and very flavorful. Server was attentive and accommodating- the desserts we pre-ordered (at the time our entrees arrived) took longer than expected, however we received two additional desserts (at no charge) to make up for the inconvenience. The ambiance was extremely loud, which made it difficult to carry on conversations at our own table, or hear the server at times. The signature Hawaiian Martini is a must try!

We LOVE Roy's but can never get used to the noise volume. If you want gourmet food with a creative twist, Roy's is for you. The Hawaiian Martini is exceptional. If you want to have a conversation during dinner, go late. If you go during happy hour, you will be forced to yell across the table in order to hear each other no matter where you are sitting in the restaurant. We made the mistake of going at 6:30. By 8pm, it was quiet but we were also finished with our dinner by then. In the future, we will not make reservations before 7:30. Because of the service, quality and creativity of the menu, Roy's will always be one of our favorites.

The noise level was so loud we had to change seating, we could not talk across the table and hear each other. Fortunately our assigned table
allowed my wife to move next to me so we could talk. Taking out one hearing aid helped to!!
Food was very good and service was excellent. Noise level not energetic but too DAMM LOUD!

This place is wonderful. We arrived on Sunday for Aloha Hour which had a small list of half price appetizers & drinks. We ordered a sushi roll and it wasn't the full size roll for half price it seemed half the size. It tasted great and was a nice sampler. The bottled beers were in fact half the price so that was a good deal. We were seated at our table in the middle of the restaurant, it is a little noisy because there is a lot going on with the bar, open kitchen and open dining room. I'll say it isn't as noisy as a mexican restaurant down the street though. The food does not disappoint. The tempura sushi roll is so unique and delicious, ribs are sweet with smoky flavor, mahi mahi was so moist. Everything was excellent.

We don't get back to Roy's as much as we used to (we live on the other side of town and we have kids) but Roy's always knows how to treat us as special guests. The management and staff always goes out of their way to make us feel welcome and few restaurants are like that - unless you spend a fortune (which we don't).

The food is always delicious (try the tuna and the tuna poke - they are both unbelievable!). Roy's is our go-to for date night or any other special occasion. It's our favorite restaurant in Orlando.

We went to Roy's for my birthday last year and thought we would do it again this year. Dinner was good, but took way too long, we almost left without desert because of the wait and we never got the picture I asked for to make up for the bad one from the previous year. I will probably pick somewhere new next year. It was too crowded, too noise and don't sit by the kitchen!

We have been to Roy's many times from the early days in Hawaii. We visited the Orlando location once last year and really enjoyed the local flavors that reminded us of home. But this second visit left us wondering what happened to the aloha. Unfriendly and inaccurate service. Average food quality. Overall a disappointing experience. Not worth the money.

Certain dishes were wonderful. Asian inspired cuisine was spot on, with proper flavors and seasoning amounts. Non-asian dishes were perfectly fine, but not particularly inspired. The drink specials were awful. (The Wasabi Bloody Mary is to be avoided at all costs, as are some of the more ridiculous Martini's.)

The waiters were wonderful, helpful and provided excellent service. The manager was friendly but too much so, and brought up inappropriate topics for dinner conversation. (I'll leave it at that, it wasn't extremely offensive, but it was odd and off putting).

Atmosphere is great, and children welcome in earlier hours.

We had gone to Roy's to celebrate a graduation and engagement. Our original reservation was made for 8 in the party. However, as the night progressed we had ask the server if we could pull up 2 more chairs as we has friends joining. Our server was rude and not accommodating. When I had asked to place an order for my 3 year old prior to the rest of the party ordering, he simply told me if I could wait a moment. Not once did he offer refills or suggest another round for any of us for any of the drinks. It was no longer an enjoyable dinner as we all were feeling like we were bothering him through out the night. The food was excellent and the other servers around us was very courteous. I guess we had bad luck and was assigned the wrong server.

A favorite for the food and the drink menu. The dishes are creative and executed well and the service is excellent. So how can one actually complain? It's not an issue but you need to expect the noise level to be high around the bar area. Just a lot of people since the happy hour is popular and the drinks are strong.

The happy hour menu is a bit pricey and the portions can be underwhelming. For example the delicious fried oyster appetizer comes with 3, for $12 ish. Who dines with 3? Still, show up early and do happy hour to save.

One complaint from my party, one member has a physical limitation and the bathroom facilities are far from handicap. She said the door to the facilities had a 20lb push on it. We had to rescue her.

 (Orlando)·Dined on April 10, 2014

Over the last 10+ years I've been dining at Roy's at several of their locations including the original location in Hawaii. One of the reasons I continue to return is for the consistency in their food, service, and my favorite drink, 1988; which is named I believe after the year the restaurant was originally opened. This was the first time that I ever left and was not happy with the food or the service. I will not expand on that comment because it's not a typical experiene for dining at Roy's. I will end on the recommendation of trying it for yourself, everyone is entitled to having a bad night.
