We had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time to be seated even though the restaurant was half empty. Once seated it was 15-20 minutes before we received water and drinks.

Amazing as always

The food and ambiance are always perfect when we dine here. It was the first time our friends had been to Roy's and they loved it and said they will definitely go back. Drinks were tasty and we had an absolutely wonderful time.
Roy's restaurant, Jacksonville Beach, Fl
Very nice restaurant with good menu....only drawback is it is so dark and can not see even the menu with glasses on!!
Great for special occasions
Always enjoy dinner here; it always feels like a special event. I did notice one of their signature cocktails, the Hawaiian Martini, seemed a little smaller than normal. For the price, it should be a little larger. I think next time I'm there I'll switch to a mai-tai. Everything else about our meal was spectacular! Thanks, again!!
Great food. One of the best in JAX

Great food, fair prices and great layout
Absolutely super food, well organized service crew and unbelievable atmosphere. A favorite of ours. We have become regulars and so have our children. We celebrate birthdays and anniversaries at Roy's.

Big thank you to Roy's for making our 22nd wedding anniversary dinner one to remember. Special thank you to Lindsey, Corey and Alissa for the spectacular service. Hat's off to Chef and his team for a wonderful dinner. My Braised spare ribs where incredible. The Belle Gloss Pinot Noir paired perfectly with it. My wife's Blackened Ahi Tuna was out of this world! We topped off the evening with the chocolate soufflé that knocked it out of the park. The attention to detail and the consistency of quality delicious food is why we come back for all of our celebrations. We wouldn't dare go anywhere else! Thank you again for a perfect evening.

Incredible Meal & Service
We are not frequent diners at Roy's but I have to say we have never been disappointed there. Tonight was no exception. Went there tonight for drinks and appetizers prior to dinner for our 41st Anniversary. The bar was packed (Happy Hour), a bit noisy and there were no seats, but the server behind the bar graciously went and found a seat somewhere in the restaurant for my wife. Not often do you get that kind of service. The drinks at the bar were strong and good and the Ebi Roll was great. Our dinner, in a quiet booth decorated for our anniversary was superb. We both had the butterfish, which was probably the best fish dinner I have ever had. The fish was so flaky and moist and the sauce was indescribable. The steamed asparagus side could have used a little seasoning but was good nonetheless. Prior to our dessert coming out one of the managers stopped by to wish us a happy anniversary and handed us a $20 gift card. I was stunned, never having had that happen at any anniversary dinner in the last 41 years. The pineapple upside down cake that came out to end the evening couldn't have been a better ending to a great meal. Well done to the staff and especially our sever who ensured we had a memorable meal.
Great service -some hits-some misses.
Food was good,but salt encrusted rib eye was fatty and didn't have and more seasoning than an Outback steak. The filet was a better purchase. Mashed potatoes were very tasty. They had us order dessert early so it would be ready when we finished our meal--/ guess they forgot to put it in-we still waited about 15 minutes.

Interesting menu, great service, very helpful staff
high prices for not so special food
I do not think Roy's is a good value for both the quality and quantity of food served. Service became confrontational after I asked for a glass for my bottled beer. Yes, the dining room has an upscale ambiance and the high prices didn't stop stop other diners from packing the place on a rainy Thursday night but I won't be back anytime soon.
Could have been better. Just alright. Not a great meal, especially considering the prices.

Our waiter Corey did an excellent job and was very knowlagble about the menu. Great evening and birthday celebration
Great little spot at the beach, food is top notch
We ventured out last week and really liked the vibe but unfortunately got a bad server. The place is clean, nicely appointed and the food was amazing. The bar scene looked vibrant and theres even a cool and separate sushi bar.
Exceptional special occasion restaurant.
My wife and I shared the Halleakala sushi roll, split a blue cheese salad, and the warm chocolate mousse dessert (hint make sure to order this with your entree). She had the ahi tuna and I had the salmon. We had 2 glasses of an excellent malbec and ordered a side of lump crab fried rice, which we didn't need. A cup of decalf for her and ice cold milk for me finished us up. $165, with tip for excellent service. Servings were plentiful. When making reservations, request a booth - either across from the kitchen if you want in on the action or against the outer wall if you want privacy. Valet parking is complimentary.

My wife and split a lobster California roll, a Maui salad, and the Miyosake Butterfish. Delicious!
A Roy's Is never disappointing!
A little loud but as the restaurant emptied was quite pleasant. Loved the butterfish and ahi combo. Never miss the Hawaiian martini!
My favorite all time, hands down!~
I've been to the original Roy's and I compare them all. This one was AMAZING in all of my ratings.
Bartender was superb.

Another surperb dining experience at Roy's Jax Bch
We were a party of 8 at Roy's for a special occasion and they really made us feel special. The food and service were both excellent. They went well out of their way to make the evening truly a special occasion.
One of our favorite places.
One of our favorite places.
Thank God we finally found a REAL restaurant!!!!
It was very refreshing to find a place where the food justified the bill. Presentation was excellent and service was better. Spices and flavors were well balanced and blended perfectly. It seems like so many restaurants around are just Sysco clones or microwave miracles. Roy's not only has a staff of actual chefs the have a unique flavor and creativity that you typically find only in hot spots like Chicago, New York, Vegas, and LA. I can, without any reservation, recommend this restaurant to even the most critical foodie. Roy's is my new "go to" to entertain clients.

Good food and drinks. Refills could've come a little faster but overall the food time was quick and we were extra impressed by the flavor of the appetizers
I loved it. Don't know why we haven't been before. Beautiful, great food , great service. We will be back. ❤️ Great Valentines Date
Over-all great dining experience
Excellent food, consistent highly trained and professional staff. I frequent Roy's inside Pebble Beach in California and as I've mentioned consistent in top quality food and great service.
Valentines Saturday night special menu for two
The restaurant was busy. However, management brought in maximum staff so that no wait was too long nor were we ever hurried. The food was superb, the staff was professional, knowledgeable, polite and kind. Exactly as it is every night. Roy's is a favorite and we vowed to visit more often.
Reservations were for 6:15 and we were seating on time. Great food. Our server was great. One of the best restaurants in Jacksonville Beach!
once again an exceptional food experience
We have come many times to this Roy's in Jacksonville beach. We enjoy their happy hour and of course their formal dining experience. The food is consistently delicious, presented beautifully and served appropriately. Do not miss the opportunity to dine at Roy's.
Our dinner experience was last minute as we had just arrived into town, but the hustle and bustle shortly ended upon arrival into Roy's. We were quickly accommodated (even with a three year old) and promptly treated - not just like guests - like family. We got free samples and a cheese quesadilla (for our boy) from the cook. The server (Stephen) was on point and was the perfect balance of attentive, educational, and effective. Bonus was, we got to sit in the booth where Gene Hackman was the night prior.
Not worth it
Roys aims to be a high end experience, and is certainly priced like one. Compared to other restaurants in this price range, we found the food to be perfunctory and forgettable. I don't mind spending money on a good meal. I do mind leaving a restaurant feeling like I'd been had. With that said, their service was impeccable.
Loud and unpleasant.
Noise level is far too high for a high end restaurant. Left with a headache. Couldn't carry on a conversation with anyone at my table. They did keep the water glasses full! Steak was a bit gas-charred flavored and a bit overcooked. Mashed potatoes had consistency of instant from a box! Not what I'd expect from Roy's. Maybe when they get a new chef I will go back. Never been happy with the chef they now have.
I had made a reservation thru OpenTable for four people and checked into the hostess stand 5 minutes early to be informed by the hostess they were running a little behind and we would be seated in about 15 minutes. We were not seated until almost an hour after our reservation time. We received no apology, the manager never came over to check on us, and did not received anything complimentary for the inconvenience. Food was good but not great and definitely not worth the price.
Wonderful evening !
We love the atmosphere, the food, the staff, and the drinks. We quite often choose Roy's for celebrating special occasions with friends and family. It is always great for Happy Hour, too. There has never been a reason to complain; always many reasons to praise. Thank you for once again making our birthday celebration perfect.
