Food was very good and we had a water front table. Alaskan's like their food spicy and this was no exception.

Three of our four meals were absolutely horrible, the 4th was marginal. When we complained, we were presented the check and were told....sorry. We subsequently spoke to the concierge at our hotel who wished we had spoken to him before we went as he would not have recommended Rays. After having traveled all over Alaska (and the world) this restaurant... More

The interior is a bit weathers and worn. The food was great though with large portions. The location was great right beside the Holiday Inn Express and overlooking the Seward Harbour.

We stopped here for a late lunch after we arrived in town. The restaurant is right on the harbor, close to all the tour boats, so I guess that is why it is so popular. We were seated quickly and had a table with a great view of the harbor. We chose from the lunch menu and had the Salmon... More

The finest meal we had in Alaska. We both had the Salmon on wood with vegetables well worth the cost. The service and view of the harbor made an excellent meal even better.

Had dinner here. beautiful views, good food, a King crab add on special to die for. It does not get better than this if only the waitress would keep her hands of my partner (literally). I expect not to be ignored when I sign the check!

It was excellent. We stopped there after our Kenai Fjords excursion, and had an excellent meal with a great view of the harbor and mountains. Lovely end to our mainland week.

After a long day me and my friends are looking for a good place to wrap up the day. Ray's waterfront locates right next to the harbor with superb view and the food is really good! I would go there again if I had the chance to visit Seward again.

I visited Ray's right at the tail end of the season and I think most of the other customers were locals in for a beer and a snack rather than a gourmet meal. I dined at the bar and ordered the most amazing grilled red salmon and garlic mash with roasted vegetables. It was truly delicious and cooked to perfection.... More

Great view on the harbor. Great place for a cocktail. Food is subpar even at fair prices. I have ate there many times and every time I wish I would are somewhere else.
