Plan to wait for a table, with or without view. Even the tables in the non-smoking bar are full on a summer evening. We ate dinner one night and returned the next night, with neither table location being anything great. But both the food and service were outstanding both times. Highly recommended.

Beautiful view, excellent service, food was great! I'd make the kiddos order off the kids meal though since the entrees aren't cheap and are probably wasted on the youngest ones

This place is hopping so be prepared to wait a bit for a table at dinner time. We started out at the bar- told it would be about a 30 minute wait. Turned out we just had a couple of sips of our drinks when a table became available. Great service, warm bread with dipping oil and butter came to... More

Ray's has the same terrific view of all the restaurants along the north harbor in Seward, but nothing really to distinguish it. Service was good but food very average.

The restaurant’s window seats give you a view of the small boat harbor so you have the chance to see party boats bring in and gut the fish they caught through the window as dinner time do coincide with the party boat return time. Whether this is your preferred view while dining is subjective. And these seats do get reserved... More

Cheesecake and bread pudding were both... More

Great fresh food, prices reasonable, service great, excellent view of harbor, bay, mountains. A refreshing change from the not so good experience we had the day before at a different restaurant.

The food was fresh, delicious and staff was really friendly and attentive! The menu was children friendly. A little pricey but it fit the overall setting and menu.
