Just another crazy Disney lady

I've seen recommendations for Roy's and for Minas Fish House. I only want to do on and have not tried either. Which would YOU recommend and why?
We like Mina’s as well! But I would add a little more additional info, a little bit on the negative side. Last time we were there in May, it was monumentally crowded, the service was just ok, and our fish arrived lukewarm. We sent it back and when it returned it was fine. Also, we didn’t find it particularly filling, though that lobster pot pie definitely looks like a decent meal! I don’t think the fish comes with alot on the side. There might have been a vegetable, but not much of it. We don’t eat dessert, so both my wife and I left hungry. We each had an appetizer, which was pretty small, and a piece of fish, and the bill plus tip was about $250.I would 100% recommend Mina’s. We’ve always had amazing food and service. We love the easy stroll there from Aulani and of course the ambiance. My youngest ordered the lobster pot pie last time on our 20th anniversary, and the plating in front of us was an experience in itself.
Around Memorial Day, the Four Seasons did that to us, but not for either Noe or Mina’s, They have a great seating area right near the beach that serves delicious appetizers that can be a fun dinner. It had plenty of seating but when they asked for our room number and we said we were from Aulani, they wouldn’t give us a table.Just an FYI, the Four Seasons has been limiting their restaurant reservations to resort guests at busy times. Several have said that they were not able to get in the past month because of that. It might not be the case when you go, just something to be aware of. Aulani does the same thing with Makahiki.
We have done both. I'd look at the menu and decide based on what sounds good. Otherwise, Minas is closer so you could go with that.I've seen recommendations for Roy's and for Minas Fish House. I only want to do on and have not tried either. Which would YOU recommend and why?
