Wonderful dining experience. The outdoor porch was perfect on this beautiful night!! Our server and bus boy were very attentive with our service. The food was fabulous! Felt very safe and comfortable eating there, during this uncertain time.

What a great time we had at the Roycroft, sipping drinks on the patio on an early Fall afternoon and enjoying a beautifully prepared and delicious lunch. There really is no place like The Roycroft for atmosphere, let alone service and quality. We try to have a lunch or dinner there as often as possible. I had the crab cakes which were superb as always, and the club sandwich was also outstanding. For dessert we had the strawberry daiquiri sorbet...YUM....and the pumpkin spice layer cake....both were fantastic! Thank you to David, the manager and Kimberly, our server for the pleasant, efficient and overall wonderful service. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Very good food; nice ambiance; good service. Everything was great except one minor detail that irked my parents...they wanted their bread plates and left over bread removed; but the servers just kept them there for the whole meal. Not sure why. No biggie though.

Saturday Sept. 12: Unusually strange visit. Maybe because of Covid?
Did not get regular area seating like we usually do for our anniversary (we've been coming to Roycroft for each anniversary 22 years!) and server just off. Not treated like we usually are and not regular staff. Hostess was rushing us to sit and did not let us move to more ambient, anniversary celebration conducive seat. Later, another couple was able to easily switch from next to us (we got stuck on side porch which is fine but wanted something different for celebration) to main peristyle. Server said dessert on the house b/c of anniversary and billed full amount. When we asked about the complimentary dessert, called my husband a "brat" and took only one of them off the bill. If this happened to be our first visit, we'd probably never return! However, we are regulars, all the time, not just our anniversary, miss seeing regulars at the bar, Mason typing on laptop, all that. So, we won't let one weird day of incompetent hostess and server. Entirely low bar evening. We sat on lawn couch after with torches and made up for it. Hopefully soon back to normal!

It was a glorious day to drive to the Roycroft and enjoy dining on their porch. Sandwich of the day, chicken salad with ginger was terrific. Love their “little slice” dessert. Our waitperson was very friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner outside on the Roycroft’s porch. The ambiance couldn’t have been nicer and we felt completely safe throughout our meal.

Although the heater nearest to our table was not working, the restaurant had blanket shawls, which my husband used!

Food was delicious and service outstanding!! We will be back soon and have been recommending the Roycroft to everyone, especially during the pandemic, when dining out is often difficult to do.

Service was wonderful. Scallops were medium-sized and some were dryer than they should have been; there were about 7 or 8. Salmon was good and it was a nice-sized piece. Rice was extremely dry. Salad was tasty but too watery, but I’m glad they washed it! Martini was excellent as was the bread. Veggies were fine. For the price, I will go elsewhere next time.

The outside dining is perfect! Bringing our own bottle of wine without an uncorking charge (Wed) is a nice perk! Our appetizers had mixed reviews. The crab cakes were to die for, but the shrimp cocktail(6 large shrimp ) were recently thawed and had that watery, tasteless, softness going on. Very disappointed in that, but everything else was wonderful. Our dinners were very good. I had the scallops, done to perfection, with the truffle risotto. My husband had the tenderloin, done as requested and served with seasonal veggies and mashed potatoes, excellent choice!

The staff at the Roycroft is superbly trained, making the dining experience so very pleasurable. Their meals are prepared to your specification and their selections are just right - there is something for everyone's taste buds. The ambiance on their patio is perfect for lunch or dinner. This is one of East Aurora's treasures.
