Fodor's Review

Roy's Waikoloa Bar & Grill. Overlooking the lake at the Kings' Shops is, granted, not an oceanfront setting, but if you're staying nearby and are looking for decent food, this place fits the bill. In the mood for a light meal? Choose from the enormous selection of great appetizers, paired with something from the extensive wine-by-the-glass list. The three-course, prix fixe meal is a good bet, as is the butterfish or Szechwan ribs, a melt-in-your mouth encounter. The menu changes nightly and has a lot of specials, like ancho-chili-pepper seared sea scallops and grilled Hawaiian ono taco. Kings' Shops at Waikoloa Village, 250 Waikoloa Beach Dr., Kohala Coast, HI, 96738. 808/886–4321. No lunch.

Worth it, if you can get in

I've been to Roy's several times and the food has been consistently top-notch, creative and some of the best on the Kohala coast. The waitstaff knows its stuff and their service is quite good. But you've got to put up with a very loud dining room and the chance that your reservation gets lost. And the earlier you make a reservation, the better chance of getting in.

a fun place for very good food

We have been to Roy's on 4 separate trips, and we have found it to be top notch each time. It is in the King's Shops shopping center, but once you are in the place, you are in a vibrant food atmosphere with an upbeat wait staff and some great local dishes. We love Roy's ahi appetizer, and the daily specials usually have something interesting. We'll return on our next trip.
