“Great restaurant with amazing view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

You can get to enjoy amazing view of the harbor from the restaurant. Their service is fantastic and they serve great seafood! We order grilled salmon, Alaska crab leg, and fish and chips. All of them taste terrific. When the waitress saw that we were with our 2 young children, she gave them activity sheets and crayons for them to play with.

“Okay Food - Good Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We were looking forward to eating here after the good reviews. Both my husband and I thought the food was just average and overpriced. The service was excellent and the view nice. Would not eat here again.

“Great Food, Hosts and a Great Expereince”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We were told it's the best in Seward and it was really great in every respect. You won't experience too many eateries in your travels as uniquely distinctive and enjoyable as Ray's.

“Good food, good service, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I've been going to Ray's for years, and I've never been disappointed. It's always crowded during the summer, but the bar is full of interesting people and stuff...you can see most every kind of fish caught in Alaskan waters up on the wall there. Get a table near a window if you can, and enjoy looking out on the Marina and the Kenai Mountains in the distance. This is a great place to be...and the young servers are always happy to be there...a good sign.
