“Loved it!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We had dinner last night at Roy's after walking up and down the strip trying to find a place that wasn't going to make us wait an hour and a half for tables, and so glad we found Roy's. We had a 30 minute wait so had drinks by the bar and then we're seated well within the 30 mins quoted.

Entree was the shared smoked Szechuan ribs, the meat was so tender and fell off the bone. We live in Bondi Sydney so for those that have had Hurricanes ribs, these ones were just as good. Mains were the spiced ranch steak and local fish in macadamia crust and kona lobster sauce. Both amazing, but the steak was out of this world good. Free edamame whilst we waited for our meal was a nice touch.

Great service and drinks all round. Roy's is not exactly cheap but more than happy to pay for the quality of food and service you receive

We just ate at Roys, our server Tyler was fantastic...the best so far in waikiki, he assisted with the wine list, the menu favourites and was a great host to our baby who we kept entertained while enjoying the great experience ! Well done !

“Wonderful evening”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

My teen grandson and I had a lovely evening here. Wait was 45 minutes for a table so we found a seat at the bar. Bar tenders were terrific! He ordered a dr. Pepper but was told they didn't have any but would he like them to fix something that tasted almost as good. YES and they did and it did taste almost as good. Attentive, friendly and willingly to please these guys. Couldn't ask for more. We then decided to eat at the bar. Escargot had orange flavoring so we will not do that one again.
The sushi was superb as we're the stuffed mushrooms. Beautiful breeze and open air bar made it a perfect evening. We both filled our faces, laughed and had a great experience. Typical Roy's pricing. Definitely a "do Again!"

“Lacking Personality”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

This review will be short and sweet as I would rather spend time writing a positive review on another location.
Very disappointed in this establishment, we visited Roy's Waikiki Beach in June '14 for two reasons, the reviews I had read and also one of our party's' name was Roy.
We had planned to spend an evening dining here but visited for drinks beforehand and sat in the external bar area.
The staff working the bar were uninterested and not willing to engage us at all, we had to request another round of drinks more than once.
I suggest that management employ staff who are prepared to converse with clientele to entice them to return

Busy and expensive but ok. There are probably better choices in Waikiki but Roy's is close to the Waikiki Shore apartments
