Met friends at Roy's for happy hour. Always a friendly place with a nice change of starters. The lobster pot stickers, the veggie rolls and the chicken/veggie spring rolls. I just happened to be so hungry that night. I ordered the Grilled Salmon in a Citrus Ponzo Sauce. It was so fresh with a little tang to it and slightly... More

We had dinner there for our 52nd wedding anniversary and were treated very special with a photo and gift certificate. Service was excellent and the dinner was delicious.

This is a pretty restaurant with low lighting, decorated with colorful and interesting paintings. The kitchen is open with seating and small booths, while the bar is located in the same open area. The dining area has many well appointed tables and large booths. We arrived early and thought to have a romantic evening. We found the restaurant to be... More

I've been to Roy's three times in the past year, for three different types of dinners: business dinner, date night, and a family dinner for my husband's birthday. Each time, our party was accommodated according to our needs. Service has been uniformly excellent, even when we made a mistake about our reservation time on one occasion (hosts graciously got us...

Like Roy's, as a franchise, each place does have it's own unique feel. Sorry to say this one was quite noisy. The two of us could not carry on a conversation because we couldn't hear each other. Food was delicious and serve was good.

This was our first visit to Roy's and I must say... We were impressed. One of our hobbies is checking out local Happy Hours. If we find the drinks, food and service amazing then we return for dinner. When we walked up we thought perhaps the restaurant hadn't actually opened for the evening as staff was arriving at the same... More

We don't usually go to Roys because its on the pricey side for us, but they'd sent us a big coupon and thought we 'd use it. After making a reservation and requesting a booth, we were quickly seated in one. The drink order wasn't right, and our server personally made them himself to make it right. We were impressed!...
