Roy's Jacksonville Beach Ratings and Reviews

Roy's has been a go to dining spot for us over the years . This visit was a bit off from the rest however and want to be fair in my comments. First off the service is outstanding both from the wait staff and the management. (Her name is Lindsey) My wife ordered the spring rolls appetizer & salmon entre and I ordered the calamari appetizer & rib eye entre. The spring rolls were rather bland, almost tasteless and the citrus nam pla sauce wasn't much help. That said, however, the calamari, finished with lime, was outstanding. (one of the best calamari appetizers I have had). The waiter, who was extremely attentive and timely, returned & said they were out of rib eye & offered me a NY Strip. I actually prefer NY Strip. When the entres were served the 1st thing my wife noticed was that her salmon was well overcooked, even dried out. The waiter was apologetic & took it back for a second attempt. Meanwhile I cut into my NY Strip only to find it was done medium, not medium rare, as I had requested. The waiter also removed the steak for a second attempt. Side bar: Your water glass will never be empty & you won't have to ask for a another drink The 2nd salmon entre arrived under cooked and we returned it as well but by then my wife did not want to try it again. My NY Strip came back done perfectly as requested & well portioned. The side of Parmesan fries was tasty although could have been a bit more crispy. (matter of taste here) The waiter, who was very much on his game, went immediately to Lindsey, the manager, who came to the table twice and comp'd the salmon entre as well as our appetizers and served us an additional appetizer. Roy's in Jax beach serves up some unusual and tasty Asian fusion entres and this experience was not typical for us. One thing you can count on however is that they seem very much to care about their guests and want them to have a great dining experience. Yes, we left a bit disappointed this time however it will not prevent us from returning.

Food was excellent but overpriced. Service was wonderful. Bathroom was disgusting. Might return. Don't bring your kids with you. If you can afford to eat here, you can afford a babysitter.

We have eaten at Roy's in Maui, Atlanta and Jacksonville Beach in the past and it has always been a favorite of mine. We took our family (a party of 12) on Father's Day for a special meal. I bragged about the food and the ambiance, and unfortunately our experience left a lot to be desired. Reservations through Open Table were easy and Roy's called to confirm the size of our group. Great start! When we arrived for our reservation, we were told to wait (really? I thought that's why I make reservations). It wasn't a terrible wait, maybe 15 minutes, and we were a large group, so we let it go. Our reservation was at 7pm and our food did not arrive until almost 9pm. We had children in our party so that was a challenge. Our waiter Charlie was friendly but inattentive. He didn't offer to even bring a bread basket or appetizer during our wait. We were told the kitchen was out of the chocolate souffle (the main dish I bragged about). I have never experienced that, and was terribly disappointed in the visit overall. The one bright spot was that our food arrived as ordered and was very delicious. However, the service left a bitter taste in our mouths. I will not be visiting this location again.

We sat at the high tops where you can see the chefs at work. Great place to sit as it provides you with some entertainment and you usually get a food recommendation. In this case, it was a sushi recommendation. Busy night because it was Father's Day but the food was great and they even had a mahi special that is particular to this location. Wine and Hawaiian coffee also hit the spot. Highly recommend Roy's in Jax Beach.

We go to Roy's a couple of times a year and we're never disappointed. The food and the staff are always first rate. They only get 'very good' on value because it is pricey enough that we can't afford to eat there more often.

The food is so delicious. Our favorite dish is "butter fish" . The chef can make the Alaska's cod so tender like tofu. We are all enjoy the environment and food. We will definitely come back. Actually we make an reservation for Father's Day. This time we will try their Sushi and something else.

Food and service were excellent as always. Everything was well prepared. The Hawaiian martini is especially good. The Ebi roll is always consistently well-prepared. I highly recommend Roy's.
Okay food,fair service at high prices- long waits
I came here my family as a special occasion dinner. We waited SO LONG for our food and in the end, I don't think the food justified the wait or the prices. Service was slow albeit pleasant. Would not come back -- hope it was just an off night for them.
Great menu, interesting preparation, super service
My wife and I took two other couples to Roy's for a Friday evening dinner. Parking was easy, the waiters were the best and the food was just excellent in every way. We will return many times.

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. Hal & Jeri Murdock
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.

Roys at Jacksonville Beach is my favorite special occasion restaurant. From making reservations, being greeted, the personal attention by the wait staff and managers, to the greeting when you leave it's always top notch

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.
