“great little spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Stopped in on evening when staying over for an early morning flight out of MCI. We had found a reataurant.com certificate and thought we'd give it a try and were pleasantly surprised. The server was attenttive and efficient. The food was great, loved the onion rings, hamburger and the mac & cheese. Our waitress was at another table so the chef/owner brought out our meal and stopped to talk for a few minutes. We will stop here again, great food and service.

“Very slow ! ! ! ! !”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

1 st time visit, LAST visit ! ! !

The food was OK but the service was very slow. If you want a quick bite to eat this is the last place to go. The prices were high for a bar, the prices matched a nice steak house prices.

“A wonderful place to dine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2011

We have stopped here several times when traveling through Platte City and have always found the food and staff to be excellent. This little restaurant has a wonderful selection of menu items and a new menu is about to be unveiled. The variety and quality of the menu items are quite good and the preparation has always been superb.

While the atmosphere might be a bit plain, the dining area has always been clean and comfortable. A bar area is along the west wall of the facility.

$5.00 lunch specials are available daily and offers a nice variety of choices for lighter dining. Additional lunch specials are offered daily. I recently chose the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. It was delicious! I also notice that on many of the menu items a special "twist" is added to a traditional item that gives it a special JRay treatment. The sandwich was served with a choice of fries or homemade chips. The homemade chips were the best I have had at a restaurant. They were offered with a cajun seasoning.

Dining here is a step up from the chain fast food sites that abound nearby. I highly recommend taking a break for something that is reasonably priced and a special dining experience. An outdoor patio is available, however, smoking is allowed here so find an upwind table. JRay's is closed on Sunday.

“A Delightful Discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2011

I've been looking for a dinner stop near Platte City and found this gem. I especially enjoy their Turkey & Bacon sandwich on marble rye and Roast Beef Club on wheat. Their soups are also very good. The beef & vegetable soup was a hearty pot roast meal in itself. I want to go back in the winter when they serve parsnip soup. My favorite menu item is their Hot Apple Crisp with pecans, ala mode. The sweet crispy topping is a wonderful complement to the succulent apple filling. Three of us shared this generous dessert portion for a perfect ending to our meals. Emily, the owner, delighted us with her personalily and attention to our needs. Although the atmosphere is basic, it's clean and modern, with optional bar seating. The food & staff are so good that I've decided to bring my bus groups here.
