We made reservations for 7 people on a Friday night. We called to say we would be 15 minutes late but when we got there we were told our table was not ready. It took 45 minutes because the people sitting at the larger table would not leave, The manager apologized and they set up another table for us. The... More

We had an excellent early dinner on a Saturday evening. This was our first dining experience at Roy's and we were blown away. We had the canoe for 2 as an appetizer and we both had the trio fish platter. Can't say which we liked better as both were excellent. We started with a special martini which was also excellent...

I am not normally found of chains...but Roy's is an exception. We had a nice meal, good service and an overall very good meal. The fish we had was out of this world good. the only hitch was the waiter rushing us at 9:50 to hurray up and order desert because the kitchen closed promptly at 10. Really? the entire... More

We tried all 6 items on the Happy Hour menu, along with several cocktails. The 2 sushi items were phenomenal, as were the Wagyu sliders. The Shortribs were a bit fatty, but the flavors were great. Mango Mojito and Jalepeno Margarita were our favorite cocktails. The coconut-pineapple martini (house specialty) was ok, but not as good as the other two.... More

After visiting this restaurant many times, usually on weekends, I can attest that it transforms from a madhouse on weekends where it is so noisy you can't hear yourself think, to a civilized and enjoyable experience during the week where the food may not change but the dining experience certainly does. The encrusted mahi mahi was delicious as was the... More

Roy's is the place to be whenever we celebrate special occasions or if we just want to feel like rock stars! We visited Martin Luther King Weekend and was there for the $29.95 Monday where we can select any entree and appetizer for $29.95! We were there with my husband and two kids and left incredibly full! I just want... More

Roy's is a well known, high end favorite. The only negative is the acoustics of the place. Their appetizer deal right now is outstanding. Go early and sit at the bar for a nice appetizer and a drink, then have dinner. The pineapple upside down cake is one of the best deserts I've ever had.

My son and I went to dinner last Wednesday and it was nothing short of fabulous! Alex was on top of his game. He suggested the signature martini, and a number of appetizers and entrée and we took him up on everything. The canoe appetizer gave us a sampling of Hawaiian fusion. Chef was nice enough to substitute the salmon... More

My mom and I went for dinner one night and were pleasantly surprised by the level of everything. We even mentioned that it was a special occasion to the manager and he sent over a free dessert! Everyone was so pleasant and the food was fantastic. I'd definitely go again.

Have dined at Roy's in Las Vegas (#1 Rated in LV) and the Orlando location is just as good as the Las Vegas location. Very nice restaurant layout with the open air between the bar, kitchen and dinning room. Love the fact that you can eat besides the kitchen and watch your meal being repaired. GREAT IDEA!!!
