We tend to eat here every time we go to Tampa. Butterfish is indeed the meal to get. Well seasoned fish with dependable sides. This is not a fast food place, everything takes time but with a well crafted cocktail the time is worth it....More

Business meeting. Great service. Food was good but I did expect better. Lobster potstickers for appetizer were good, but most of us agreed we could not taste any lobster. Salad was very bland and hardly any dressing! Some thought they forgot to put dressing on...More

I had the most fabulous dinner at Roy’s. The Szechuan ribs and braised short ribs are a must. The wine list is wonderful but nothing beats the service. Matt, our waiter, could not be more pleasant and knowledgeable regarding the menu. He made our dining...More

They are not open for lunch. They may do brunch on some special occasions. As far as online orders, I do not think you can order on line.
