Great salads. If you like an oily fish, Roy's Butterfish (Black Alaskan Cod) is out of this world. Easy walk from most Waikiki hotels.

Bad service, food was just ok. Atmosphere very loud, not a romantic or relaxing atmosphere, if that's what you are looking for. Pretty much any place you go to on Waikiki will be busy and crowded.

We had been hoping Roy's would be the highlight meal of a month long Pacific trip but we were disappointed. We had tried Eating House 1849 in Kauau a few days earlier and were not overly impressed there either. So, here's our take on the dishes for which we posted photos. The Smoked BBQ Baby Back Ribs were absolutely incredible.....wonderful... More

Dined here with my wife last night. It was fantastic. Service was attentive, professional and knowledgeable. The food was delicious. We had a seafood sampler appetizer, along with the Canoe and the Beachwalk Sampler entrée. For dessert, the chocolate soufflé was superb. Not cheap, but worth every dime.

Roy's was by far the best place I had dinner in Waikiki. I say that though I prefer not to eat at chain or celebrity restaurants. My dinner at Roy's was the only good dinner I had in a sea of otherwise average and overpriced restaurants in Waikiki.

I LOVE Roy's - all of them. We routinely go to the one in Bonita Springs, FL. We went to the one in Chicago a few months ago and now the one is Waikiki - all so great. It is weird to get meatloaf or short ribs at a asian/Hawaiian fusion restaurant but those are my favorites. Always an incredible... More

We have been to Roy's in Waikoloa on the Big Island and wanted to try it in Waikiki. I worry that Waikiki has so many people that the desire to be first class would diminish but not to be so. Roy's was as fabulous as I expected. We had 6 people and ordered family style, meaning we had a lot... More

We were lucky to be seated immediately without a reservation, but our table was tuck in the corner we assumed reserved for walk-ins. Our server Terry was very helpful and attentive. I had the blackened Ahi and my husband ordered the meatloaf with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The food was delicious but came in small portions that left us hungry... More

We found the restaurant to be so tightly packed the waiters had trouble reaching us and so loud we had trouble talking to each other. The food was excellent. The newer Roy's in Ko Olina is much nicer
