Everything is fresh and beautifully presented. The service is superb by friendly staff who like what they do! Situated right on Hwg 2 going through Claresholm it is easy to find.... More

The food here is very good! The chef has been on a couple of Foodnetwork shows, and you can taste why. We had the Brisket Sandwich special, and the meat was so tender, and had nice bbq crispy bits in it. The cole slaw was delightful, crunchy and nicely spiced with dill. The brisket didn't have pronounced spice in it... More

Country fried steak, the Denver, Thai chicken salad and brushetta chicken burger were all items we tried and would absolutely get again! I'd highly recommend the chicken friend steak if... More

Hands down the best small town food ever! I have lived and traveled all over Canada and the US and I have never received the level of hospitality and quality of food that Roy's place provides!

My son's and my wife and I met at Roy's for dinner. We all had great meals, the Whiskey burger is especially good, and my eldest son wanted some dessert to end off his meal. We normally do not do dessert so he decided to go with their cinnamon bun. The server said it was a great choice and the... More

We are a full service family style restaurant. We strive for fresh, in house made food. We say "EAT REAL FOOD" and the only way you can do that is by knowing what the ingredients are and that it does not come out of a package. Come to Roy's, Eat real food, and laugh a little!!
