Taste of Natural North Florida: The ‘Edna Special’ – a Steinhatchee Original

The Edna Special at Roy's - a unique take on hush puppies.

How do you like your hush puppies?

At Roy’s Restaurant, waterfront views and the Greek flair that seasons the menu items have made this eatery a Steinhatchee gathering spot since 1969. When you go, be sure to ask for the Edna Special, which pairs your freshly fried hush puppies with the unusual combination of guava jelly and cream cheese.

If may sound odd, but trust me, you’ll want to try it. The sweetness of the guava adds a counterpoint to the crispy hush puppies that the cream cheese rounds out delightfully.

Along with steaks, crab, lobster, scallops, smoked mullet dip, a killer Greek salad and more, the Edna Special is one of the draws that keeps folks coming back to Roy’s.
