Roy's Jacksonville Beach Ratings and Reviews

Food was decent; always like the hibachi salmon. Salad seemed skimpier than our past visits. Personally I'm not sure whose idea it was to make guests request the edamame rather than bringing it out as a courtesy, but it comes across as cheap. Our drinks were also cheap -- not sure what kind of vodka was in our martinis but we ended it with headaches from drinks that were quite weak. We will go back because there aren't that many restaurants in Jax Beach, but will order wine or beer.

Went to Roy's for our Thanksgiving meal! Thoroughly enjoyed their Thanksgiving special Turkey with all the trimmings! It was delicious. Service was great and we had a very nice meal. Would not hesitate to do this again.

Used to be a favorite"special occasion " restaurant---until now! Service & food were always excellent. However, food has declined significantly. I ordered the encrusted flounder, accompanied by corn hush-puppies & spinach (at $33!!). All I could taste was SALT. The fish (which Roys is known for) seemed overdone & chewy and....salty. The spinach was pure SALT & the hush-puppies were tasteless dough balls-not a resemblance to corn" at all. Since we were celebrate friends birthday, I did not complain, but was so disappointed, that I doubt I'll be back any time soon. Sorry Roy's, I guess your days here are numbered.

food was great however, filet mignon could have been more tender. only thing was the horrible seating. chairs are the most uncomfortable for a class restaurant. booths are well padded but we were a party of eight and had to sit at a table.

We went for Our 40th Wedding Anniversary and loved it. They went out of there way to please us. Nice touch, they even took a picture of us and gave it to us when we left. Also they had the table decorated with 40th Anniversary when we arrived. We will definitely go back again.

Over-rated, aside from the Wedge Salad and lobster potstickers. There was a bug in my drink...average service. Luke-warm food service, and attitude of inconveniencing the staff. Done. Not the same establishment I recall from years past.

We had a large party. The food was very good, service excellent. Personally I felt for the $$$ value of the menu it was a tab to much compared to other upscale establishments. They may have a fruit fly problem, I had fruit flies in my salad and had to return it. Management offered other free items to satisfy me for the issue.

Service was excellent, all the staff was very friendly and attentive to us. One drawback was the matter of dessert which was put to us even before we ate! Something about the time wait for prep but disconcerting -- I don't know if I want dessert before I've eaten. Asked twice, don't think that's a good idea - sounds pushy! Otherwise, was a great experience, lovely ambience!

A good restaurant especially for a chain. However the price for simple drink (vodka and tonic $11) and my seafood entree for $40 was too much for what I got. I made the mistake of not asking the price of the special entree I ordered. Got there with an Opentable reservation for 7:30 on a Saturday night and still had to wait 20 minutes perhaps that is by design to get you to buy a drink for $11 at the bar. Very loud at first, fortunately by the time we left at 9:30 it had quieted down. The service was very good especially when one in my party ordered a special and they had run out. They brought a substitute and did not charge for it. Food is very good but when the prices are in the $30s for an entree it really has to be even better. It's cousin Bonefish has comparable food and ambiance and costs less

The service was exceptional. (Five star)
The food, with the exception of the lobster bisque, was sub par to say the least. I ordered the Roy's Trio and not one of the fish dishes was good. I was disappointed and could have kicked myself for not going to Eleven South instead.
My meal tasted like poor quality food covered in gourmet sauces (three ways)
My check was $80 and I left a 25% tip.

Properly serviced (not too little or too much). Excellent food commensurate with the higher cost.
We started with the appetizer sampler where we thoroughly enjoyed all but the vegetable that was placed under the chicken. Wife had scallops, which were delicious - had to force her to give me a taste :) I had a medium cooked ribeye that was perfectly cooked and cut of meat was nicely marbled.

We have dined at Roy's in Jax Beach several times in the past few months and we all felt this past visit was not up to par. We sat down at the bar first only to be welcomed by seats with food on them, left by the previous patron. Kind of turned us off. from the get go. The wagyu beef sliders on the bar menu are outstanding! We were seated at our table by the always very friendly, prompt, courteous and knowledgeable wait staff. The Summer pre fixe menu was so/so. The soba noodles with beef tasted like no more than a bowl of Ramen and soy sauce with some beef scraps (supposed filet), tossed in, the swordfish was so small it was good for about five bites and also had a rather strong taste of cilantro, not my faavority herb. Th pre-fixe dessert was a custard of some kind topped with a citrus tasting super sweet syrup. Actually too sweet to finish. The Calamari appetizer was ok, but nothing to write home about and it too was weak on the amount served. The Lobster bisque on the other hand was flavorful and quite tasty. Both guests enjoyed their soup.
Quite frankly this was a disappointing trip to us and not so sure we will make it back in the recent future. Fortunately we had a $20 coupon card given to us at a previous visit because no one felt this meal was worth the cost and the time it took for us to drive to Jax Beach.
Better luck next time I suppose...

Wonderful dinner! Started with the appetizer "canoe" for 6: sumptuous short ribs; steak and chicken (on sticks); lobster filled dumplings & tuna sushi rolls. All were good, especially enjoyed the ribs, sushi & dumplings. Steak & the chicken were okay, but not great. Our table of 7 ordered the seafood specials : sea bass & Mahi, and short ribs. The short ribs, as always, are melt-in-your mouth & delicious! The nut crusted Mahi, seated with grits was delightful. The sea bass (@$45) was outstanding, served with a decadent sauce & pan seared gnocchi, that was equally pleasing. Only setback was, although the plates were piping hot-the bass felt quite cold--more room temperature, which seemed odd & disappointing. Overall though, excellent service & truly outstanding flavors!

Roy's is one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions. The service is always fantastic and the food is an experience. The Mai tai reminds me of when we lived in Hawaii. The also have a wonderful wine list and do a great job pairing with the food you have ordered. Highly recommend.

One of my favorite restaurants in North Florida. Consistently great food, awesome drinks, great service in a very lively environment. Our waiter was terrific, was taking my almost empty mai tai glass when I objected (several sips left) and he dropped the glass; apologized profusely, got me a towel for few drops splattered on my shirt, then brought me a whole new drink. He was great.
All of us thoroughly enjoyed the appetizers, soup, salad, and the different main courses; tried different choices including the evening special and all were wonderful.
