Roy's Baltimore Ratings and Reviews

We went on Sunday for brunch. The dining room itself only had 4 tables filled, but they also had a large party in the separate room, so service was extremely slow (almost an hour to get food). We actually argued over whether we should just leave. Our server felt bad about this and gave us gift cards. At the same time, she also kept telling us the food was on the way when it clearly was not on the way. If they are understaffed, they should probably close the OpenTable reservations.

We've been to Roy's on numerous occasions. We've always enjoyed the atmosphere and food.
Our last visit was the second time we had a 45-60 min wait past our reservation time. This was frustrating given we'd made a reservation and we're celebrating a birthday.
Roy's did compensate our wait with a few free appetizers and picked up our bar bill.

Service was great. The food was pretty good but the braised beef was a very small portion. I'm a small eater and it still seemed a bit like an appetizer. My wife had the salmon and she said it was good but not near her top five or anything. Decor was ho-hum. All-in-all, it was a decent, but less than inspiring meal.

The noise level was horrible. It was so loud that it gave me a headache. This is my favorite place to eat in Baltimore but this night it was off.. The other main concern was the kitchen was extremely slow. Almost an hour for entrees to arrive. I did complain to the manager and she said she would talk to the kitchen staff.

Not as good as it was a few years ago. The canoe appetizer was disappointing. The kitchen was slammed so it was too long between appetizer and entree. Food was good but very pricey. Wait staff was very knowledgeable.

We love Roy's!! I nearly always get the butterfish and it is never a disappointment. On this visit the buttery whipped potatoes caught my eye---don't ever call potatoes 'fabulous' but there is no other word to describe them. Our waiter, Josh, was friendly, helpful and professional. We do not live near Roy's but when in town, we will definitely go back.

We have been to many Roy's and this one many times but Sat night it was awful! Rib appetizer came as dinner so we were charged full dinner, rice side dish was gummy. Too many good dining choices in Baltimore to ever go back.

We celebrated at our 25th anniversary at Roy's of Baltimore,. It seemed appropriate since we were married in Hawaii. Let my start by saying that overall it was a good experience, and our server Kayla, did a wonderful job. Loved her. . We received a warm greeting of "Happy Anniversary" from the staff. We sat in the bar after checking in. The Hawaiian Martini was fabulous ( I had 2 that evening). Our table had a small placard with a very nice anniversary message from Roy's(see photo). My husband got the 3 course special with the pork chop, which he enjoyed very much. I got the lobster trio and substituted extra shrimp in place of the crab cake, because I don't eat imported pasteurized crab meat from Singapore (I'm a native Marylander!) My dinner came and the undercooked lobster tail was limp and slid off the shell when I cut the first bite. Yuk. The shrimp was perfect however, and the Mac and cheese outstanding! I returned the lobster tail and they brought me another, this time over cooked and dry. Disappointed but hungry I ate it. They were nice enough to comp my dessert, chocolate soufflé which was amazing. My only other issue was that they seated us at a booth next to the busy kitchen and servers alley and I saw several two top tables in the quieter area of the adjoining dining room. So that was avery disappointing. When I made my reservation the week prior I did tell them it was our anniversary, and so I expected a better table.

This is the 2nd time we have been to Roy's and gotten poor service. We were told they no longer bring out Edamame unless requested because they got brown and would be hot when we requested them. We did request them and they came out cold and overcooked. Very disappointed in the whole experience.

Had lunch at Roys. Please note that on the weekend they have a limited lunch menu, which we didn't know about beforehand. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and we had a table by the window which overlooks a neighborhood circle. Nice for people watching.
The server was knowledgeable and offered good suggestions. My spouse had the salmon and I got the sushi, both were very good. The bill was somewhat high for lunch but we both had 2 cocktails, which amounted to about 1/3 of the bill. If you want a high end lunch on a budget, you could skip the drinks and do well at Roys.

Roy's is a chain, so start there.... The food is very good, but the portions leave a lot to be desired. The cost is up there as well. Make sure to bring your "fat" wallet. All and all, I like Roy's, but it is definitely for special occasions only (at least for me).
My wife and I found the food quality and ...
My wife and I found the food quality and the service to be excellent at Roy's. The drinks were tasty as well. When we mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary, our server came back with a digital camera and asked if she could take our picture, and we said yes. When we were served dessert, she presented us with a print of the photo she took in a frame with fresh flowers. That was a nice touch! We were also given our dessert for free - another really nice gesture.
Overall, we had a great experience, until we saw the bill. Four drinks, two appetizers, and two entrees, when tax and tip were included, came to over $222.00!!! We were shocked that everything added up to such a high amount. Although the quality of the food and service were very good, we did not leave feeling that enything had blown us away, and for that price, we feel like it should have. I would recommend Roy's for their happy hour, when you can sample the food and drinks for much more reasonable prices.

I have been in Love with this place since I first stepped foot in it, back in 2012! My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner there, and have been coming back ever since. I actually go every year for my birthday. It is our favorite restaurant in Baltimore. The menu changes regularly, but maintains some excellent staples (the braised beef short ribs, yum!). The Hawaiian Martinis are excellent! I could go on and on, but I love Roy's and would recommend it for any occasion!

My friends and I got together for dinner during Baltimore Restaurant Week and decided to go to Roy's. The spare ribs were excellent. I truly enjoyed it. The server, Michael, was enjoyable and friendly. I'd go back again.

The food was good cannot say outstanding. I had one of the signature cocktails, Hawaiian Martini. It was very good. I didn't recognize much on the wine list. It was my first time there. The biggest issue I had was that the décor was very dated.

The menu selection is unbeatable at Roy's. The food quality is great as well. The service is slow. By the end of our dinner, we just wanted to go home and go to bed. When the service is faster, they will be great all around.
