Description: Formerly Ray's at Killer Creek, we have a firm belief that food should be enjoyed for its intrinsic flavors and not masked under a barrage of sauces or pretentious seasonings, Our talented kitchen delivers a delicious menu for everyone's tastes. For your wine glass, our cellar is stocked with premium vintages — Caymus and Jordan, Opus One, and Mondavi Reserve to name a few. Our list includes an extensive reserve section and 50 labels that are served by the glass. Tying it all together is a professional wait staff, many of which have been with us for 5+ years. Genuine and attentive, each server personifies Ray’s on the Creek’s dedication to having a great time eating out.

“A Brunch to Remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I've not eaten at Killer Creek for a dinner or lunch, so I was surprised to see some negative comments about the food "going downhill" here. However, you would never know it if you came here for Sunday brunch. It's a bit heavy on the wallet ($30/person) but it is neverending, full of variety, great sweet breads, omelets made to order, prime rib, desserts, you name it. We celebrated my mother's 80th birthday here and found it to really fit the bill. Of course, service isn't really a focus when you are doing a brunch (self service eliminates that) but I can comment favorably on the ambience, the terrific coffee (and I am a "coffee snob"), limitless number of brunch choices and the collective opinion that this was a great experience. Perhaps, considering some of the less than favorable reviews of the dinner experience here, you should put Killer Creek on your "brunch list" and take fewer chances in the process. Our experience (8 of us including two pre-teens who delighted in making their own sundaes and sneaking in the next room to watch television in the bar!) was definitely a "10"!

“Pushy Service and High Prices”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I had a dinner with a few business friends at the restaurant. I found the service to be pushy, noisy and disruptive. One guest was trying to substitute the mashed potatoes with vegetables. It took some effort to convince the waitress to accept the change, which is totally unacceptable for a restaurant of this class. It turned out that the vegetables were charged extra on the bill. The prices for drinks are too high also. All in all, not a good value for the quality of the food and the service.

“Poor service and value”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

I had lunch with two business associates yesterday. The service was poor. Our food was brought out at different times, and we called the waiter over to bring out the soup (which should have been brought out first). Two of us got chopped salads. They were small, and more the size of a side salad than an entree. Overall, this was a poor experience, and we doubt we will go back.

“No longer our favorite restaurant, will not be going back!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We have been going to Rays for years. I can't even believe its the same restaurant. The quality of the food has taken the ultimate nose dive. They no longer have au poive or Oscar options for their steaks. Both of our filets were over cooked and lacking the quality they once were. The waiter agreed with us and took them back, leaving our sides on the table. By the time our new steaks were cooked and brought to the table our side orders were cold. The new steaks weren't over done, however they were flavorless and not tender. A supreme disappointment. Their french fries were under cooked, kind of wet and not at all crispy and the fingerling potatoes were mostly hard and undercooked as well. For a Saturday night at 7pm there might have been three tables occupied. They no longer play the old Frank Sinatra style of music and it seemed that the entire wait staff has changed, did not recognize one waiter. This experience seriously saddened us. Once our go-to restaurant for every occasion including my husbands work dinners, birthdays, anniversaries, will no longer be our restaurant of choice. Looks like we can take our Rays frequent dining card out of our wallet. Just really sad, seems like the end of an era!
