We always love including The Roycroft as part of our summer vacation. Eating on the covered patio on a warm afternoon makes for a great experience and the food is exceptional.

The Roycroft Inn was such a treat on a multitude of levels. The surroundings are so incredible just sitting in the restaurant was a treat! The food was simply the icing on the cake. Every individual we spoke with was pleasant and helpful. From the moment we set foot in The Roycroft we felt welcomed. We loved it so much, we will be returning on the regular basis even if it is an hour long drive.

Awesome menu, relaxed, spacious, historic ambience, excellent food and service, and the perfect place to celebrate my 64th birthday with my wife. Server Heather surprised us with an ice cream sundae with a candle on top. Nice touch! My fave place to dine in WNY.

Stuffed pepper app was delish, French onion soup and lobster bisque were very good. My scallops and risotto awesome, wife's filet ordered med, was barely med. Rare, not very well seasoned and undercooked.

I always love dining at the Roycroft and introduced it to a friend of mine. We had lunch on the porch- the lunch was delicious but the service was on the slow side. Otherwise, it was a wonderful experience.

Too many tables, not enough server support. Took 55 minutes from drink order to delivery. Drinks arrived at the same time as our wine ordered for dinner... love the Roycroft but not today.....must due better than this!

Loved the ambiance of our outdoor table. It was not crowded at all on the Thursday we were there. Our server and other bus staff were all very pleasant. I found the time courses was a bit longer than necessary. The food was well prepared. My husband had the crab cakes and I had the soup of the day. Both were good. I had the roast Turkey panini and my husband had the turkey club. Again both were very tasty. We agree we'd like to come back to try their dinner menu.

Very extensive variety of food; all prepared perfectly. Excellent, courteous, attentive service; Roycroft Inn did not rush diners resulting in a most enjoyable experience. String quartet was an added feature of a remarkable brunch. So enjoyable we bought Roycroft Inn gift certificates for our friends.

Clearly, one of the best places in Buffalo for a really nice brunch on a Sunday morning. Ask for outdoor seating....it's just lovely. Food was hot and delicious, desserts are out of this world. Definitely a place to put on your list.

Excellent food and ambiance. The only knock I’ve given is that the server cleared my plates before my wife had finished eating which is something I’d expect a restaurant of this caliber to know better than.

Enjoyed lunch at the Roycroft, service very good, food good. One disappointment- my luncheon date has mobility issues and the Roycroft has about 5 stairs for her to climb. An additional 3-4 steps to the restrooms. In this day of handicap accessible facilities we were disappointed and would avoid in the future, only for that reason.

The food was spectacular. The building and ambiance were perfect. Our service was unreasonably slow though. We had to ask the busser for another bottle of wine. When initially asked if we were ready to give our order, we asked for just another minute. The server did not return to our table for 25 more minutes to take our order. The food is pricey but high quality and delicious- perfect for special occasions.

Vegetable crepes were tasteless. Only good thing on the table was the wine. Noise level was high due to wedding in banquet room. Really interfered with a beautiful night on the open porch. The doors to the banquet room were closed after we mentioned the noise was disconcerting....or rather annoying. And opened 15 minutes later. Our server was fabulous, btw. She was the only bright spot of the evening. Not returning soon.

This is fine dining in a beautiful, historic building! I highly recommend, especially in summer, so you can enjoy the soft breeze on the porch.
A couple of caveats-
I would love to see more local wines, spirits, & brews offered. Celebrate NY agriculture!
The flies were buggy during the meal. Not enough to dissuade us but annoying.

We love visiting the Roycroft Inn during the summer. I learned something this year, don’t assume you will be seated outside on a nice evening. While we had reservations, the hostess was going to seat us inside. I refused and then she found a table for us outside (in a terrible location). I also learned to request a table in the long section of the porch that runs parallel to Grove St.. While this was probably our least enjoyable visit over the 15 years we have made annual summer trips from Rochester, the food was excellent as always.
