Friday night fish fry is excellant! Service was quick and efficient. It's worth a visit to Royal Court for the fish fry. I have eaten breakfast there and that was also good. Only wish is that it were open more. I was not able to eat the breakfast on my last visit as it was closed on that weekend. So

I have reviewed before, but I want to mention how awesome they are for business meetings. They regularly give every person in my group and individual bill which is not easy to get at many restaurants. When we are there we see many large groups of 75 or 100 that have regular meetings at Royal Court. I also appreciate have... More

Great place, fine food and excellent staff. Centrally located to "everything". We eat here at least once a week. I recommend This restaurant to all visitors to this area.

We love the Friday night fish fry, and Royal Court has become the place of choice for family birthday celebrations. The service for parties of ~10 is great, and the food is excellent. The atmosphere is warm and quiet enough for easy conversation, and the small salad bar offers several salads (three bean, potato, macaroni, coleslaw, and tossed) plus the... More

Oddly the pictures above are Meadow Court which is the associated motel.... Anyway, this place looks ordinary but turns out some great food. I have really been impressed by the fruit cup the last few weeks. Very fresh every time. This morning my associate had a very generous portion of corned beef hash. There were 4 of ys. We were...

The crowd at lunch tells you it's OK, and the food is well presented and tasty, while the prices are quite reasonable. The atmosphere of the crowd makes the experience and fun.

Arrived at the motel next door late and had fish and chips special. Food was pretty good and the service was ok. Price was very good. Not gourmet 5 star but overall good! The attached bar/lounge was a bit noisy with a few Friday night locals having fun. Overall not a bad experience.

Although this restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, my main acquaintance with Royal Court is breakfast. I would take my crew of workman there, and sometimes a few buddies, and they were very accommodating. Chris would remember our special preferences and have things ready for us. The eggs benedict were a favorite of mine, but they have many good items.... More

Our Red Hat group gathers here every Tuesday morning for breakfast. The food is always good and there is nothing the staff won't do to make our visit enjoyable. We are a fairly large group but that presents no problem to the wait staff ~ the service is excellent and always friendly. We also schedule special events here and we... More
