Sadly long-standing manage, Danno, has been moved on to another Roy's. His unique style of management and genuine interest in all his guests is sadly missed. This was last December and the entire atmosphere had gone sadly downhill. Even the food (Roy's legendary short ribs) had lost the wow factor and service was average and a degree patronising. I have... More

Food was excellent. Ribs were to die for. Dessert excellent. Loved our pre-set menu, but 2 of 12 guests did not get meals on time. Last guest was served as dishes were being cleared. Not acceptable. Wait staff seemed very frustrated. Would recommend for small group.

I was excited to come back to Roys. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and with a fair amount of tables empty they made us wait for 10 mins. This should have been a sign. The waiter came by and said he would be right back and disappeared for 10 more mins and went to the table... More

Reservations at 9:15, were not seated until 9:45. Ordered drinks, cups had smeared lipstick from previous customer. Had to get drinks myself at the bar after 1:30 wait to replace them. Ordered our food, not much selection. Twice had to change the orders because they ran out of our selected items because we "came in too late", mind you we... More

We visited Roy's for Valentines Day dinner and it was the perfect setting. We had made reservations (strongly recommended) for 6:15pm - one of the only 2 time slots left after making reservations around mid-afternoon. I'm sure if you made reservations more in advance, you'd probably get a time slot between 7pm and 8pm, but after this visit I prefer... More

Excellent food; excellent service. Save room for dessert as their pineapple upside down cake is fantastic. We started with the Hawaiian martini and then had braised beef which was melt in your mouth.

I had a business dinner for 13 people. The service started a little slow but picked up and was better. Everyone had a great time. The food and wine was great! Thank you

Went here to celebrate my young sisters upcoming nuptials! The food was delicious. The drinks were good. The prices a little high. I would recommend to others but just remember to come expecting to spend some money. It was like having a little bit of Hawaii in Orlando. I have to say the POKE was delicious!!!

Having been to this location for many years and at Roy's all over the country I'm shocked what's going on here. Is it the company or just this management team? Service was 'blah' and not attentive, not knowledgeable, food has changed and is marginal at best. Manager walks the floor but only speaks to the female servers, not the customers... More

We love Roy's restaurants and were so happy when we came back to Orlando and found out that Roy's is open for lunch!! We planned to visit other one of our favourite places for lunch but we immediately changed our plan! We walked in to an empty Roy's with two people at the front of the house, when we were... More
