Fun sports bar

The service was great. We only had appitizers, but it was quick and tasty. They had the Wild game on and we were able to talk without raising our voices.

We went to Ray J's for a family function in the banquet room. The banquet room was probably the nicest part about this place. it was clean, had it's own bar, and the server staffing the room was very good. This, however, is where the good ends. There are no bathrooms in the banquet room, so you have to go... More

This was a repeat dinner at Ray J's (I eat there often when traveling for business). It was a Monday night and the Packers were on TV so it made for a great atmosphere. Food selection is great and offer a great selection. Wings are great, pizzas are also very good, beer selection is great. I tried one of their... More

two of us went on weekend for breakfast/lunch. Restaurant was only partially full yet 3 pancakes and a chicken wrap took over 30 minutes to arrive. Pancakes were so burnt they had to be re done which took another 20 minutes! Chicken wrap had absolutely no flavor at all. Manager did take pancakes off bill without having to be asked,... More

I have been to Ray J's many times but always ate indoors. The patio was available last night but we opted to eat outside. Service was slow. Tables were sticky and left unbussed for a long time - used napkins were blowing on the ground. We, and several other diners, had to get up and search for condiments, flatware and... More

We used to visit Ray J's quite a bit over the years, but the last couple times that we went there, the food service was so-so, and the food quality of the food has diminished. The last time we were there, my wife and I ordered the fried fish, it was greasy and mushy, and the previous visit, the pizza... More

We have been to Ray J's before and ordered off the menu, and it was good. We just had the Sunday brunch and I was extremely disappointed. We didn't know we couldn't order off the menu before we sat down. We figured we would try the buffet anyways. Huge mistake. Almost everything was gone or old, cold, and dried out.... More

We all had good food and the wings and Mac and cheese were our favorites! The staff was also very friendly. The only downfall is the restaurant is filthy. I could not figure out why my chair would not move and I realized it was stuck to the ground. The bathroom looked like someone threw drinks not wall and floor... More
