Is it crazy to say that I still remember the very first time I dined at Roy’s, which was over 15 years ago! We don’t visit this restaurant often, maybe once a year at the most, some years, not at all. Every time we go, the food is always fantastic! Last week, for Easter Sunday, we found ourselves brunching at Roy’s Beach House at Turtle Bay. We also found out that it was Roy’s very first time doing an Easter brunch! Usually, for every holiday in Hawaii, restaurants are booked out, especially popular ones such as Roy’s. We suggest reserving a table for your family ahead of time – this saved us a few times, especially for dinner!
Roy’s is a favorite local restaurant in Hawaii. There is five Roy’s restaurant in Hawaii, but we chose Roy’s Beach House at Turtle Bay which is located right on the resort property. If you’re looking for a sweet date spot or more of formal dining, visit any of Roy’s restaurants in Hawaii. It’s more on the higher end which is worth the money for the food and service since it’s always tremendous!
At this specific Roy’s, they have an outdoor setting which ties in with their “beach house” theme. You can sit in the main dining area or close to the beach.
Even though it’s right on the beach, the restaurant is on a platform so you don’t have to worry about touching the sand with your toes (although that might be an even better “beach house” dining experience, right?!).
As mentioned, we made reservations ahead of time for Easter brunch. Being that it was their first time doing this, the manager was going around and checking each table making sure everything is going smoothly or if we had any recommendations for the next one; which added value to their customer service.
For every meal during Easter Brunch, they offered either Fresh Fruits or Spring Greens for starters. The fruit bowl which had honeydew, cantaloupe, pineapple, watermelon, and strawberry was terrific. As for the Spring Greens, it could’ve used more salad on the plate.
Once we were finished with the starters, our main Entrees started to arrive; First up was the Creole Style Crab Cakes Benedict served with asparagus, 62′ egg, taro English muffin, and shichimi hollandaise. The crab cakes and taro English muffin just paired perfectly together! So ono!
Next, was Loco Moco Skillet served with their delicious garlic rice, sunny side eggs, kimchee, and Dee’s gravy. I love that they had the gravy on the side! This Loco Moco is on a whole new level, and we’re not mad about it.
Last but not least, this is also one of the main Entree – Cinnamon Roll French Toast. Sweet baby Jesus! This dish was phenomenal! Everyone had a piece of this scrumptious dish and loved it. Can this be on the menu at Roy’s forever, please?!
Overall, we had a fantastic Easter brunch at Roy’s Beach House. There were no leftovers to take home; every plate was cleaned out! The best part was that our waitress ensured we always had a drink and filled up our water. Incredible food, cocktails, and service per usual!
