We had a really good experience last night for dinner here. Our server was very nice and personable. This was a Birthday dinner date and I called in advance to let them know.

This was our first time and we really enjoyed. We ordered the special including an appetizer, entree and desert. Drinks were pretty good as well. Kinda loud atmosphere but nonetheless perfect for casual and elegant dining. Bartender was great. Will definitely be back.

I had never been to Roy's, But went out with coo-workers and to my delight this place was spectacular! Oddly enough the Manager had just rotated to Tampa from Baltimore, as stated I had never been here but struck up a conversation with the Manager (Ashlee) who also welcomed us with a variety sample plate. I've since went to the... More

Went with a dozen including 4 little ones. They took excellent care of the kids feeding them quickly. The rest of us had various dishes which were all excellent. Try the 4 fish sampler. It was superb.

Met some friends whom we see infrequently. Roy's is a bit pricey. The food overall was good. The service was average.
