“Good steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We had a delicious, juicy, tender steak here though I was not impressed by the burgundy onion soup or the sides. The mashed potatoes almost tasted like instant mashed potatoes. The service was good but the waitress like a machine... not very personal. We were at the Retro Steak House.

“Great Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Ray's is just great steak, expertly prepared, with normal (non-trendy) sides, in an elegant if sparce setting. Perfect for a business meal. Parking can be a challenge (thank God for Metro) and it's beer-wine only.

“Amazing Steak at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is one of the best steaks you will have without paying the price of other expensive steakhouse. You can get a nice meal for two and a glass of wine for $60/person.

I had the au poivre little devil burger with fries and onion rings which was delicious. Wish I had had room for the Key Lime pie!!

“Great Steaks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Nice steakhouse. No pompous attitude. No extra charge for some sides. Just tender steaks cooked right. Decent wine list that is reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere. A little hard to find but worth it.
