Reviews for Roy's Fish Fry

My parents said they heard the food was good here. I'm a foodie, so I try it and buy for the family. These great reviews must be from the staff or people in the city who only eat Chinese food so, of course the food here is amazing to them. The yams have to have to much cinnamon. Why is there cinnamon in yams anyway? The fish is oily and small AF. If you want delicious fish go to The Stake N Take truck in Bergen St. across from the hospital. The greens are very salty.

I tried Roy's a few years ago and had a horrible experience. I went back last week, and although there's been some improvement- I was still underwhelmed. The area is not the best so definitely be careful while there. There's street parking only but it's not difficult to find a spot for your car. I decided on just a fish sandwich this time and skipped the sides. The fish was bland and tasted like it had been fried earlier in the day. Adding hot sauce and tarter sauce helped a bit, full review

Worst fried fish I had. The shrimp was even worse. The coleslaw was terrible. I eat shrimp everywhere and this was my least favorite. You’re paying an arm and a leg to wait more than 30 minutes and get bad food. I understand seafood is pricey but $16 for a few pieces of fish, and shrimp with a side is very high
