“Good location on the marina, good service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

A nice, moderately upscale seafood themed restaurant in the heart of Seward's marina. I suspect at the right time of the year, meals are literally straight from the catch. Nice wine and beer selection. As expected for the offerings and location.

“Good seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We took 5 kids here. Wrong place for them! but they handled us very well and we came up with things they could eat from the bar menu. They had a limited kids menu, but offered chicken strips from the bar which satisfied everyone.

“steamer clams are fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Ray's has a great view of the harbor and a nice casual atmosphere, the seafood is fresh and delicious. It is a little expensive but the couple of times I have eaten here it was enjoyable.

“Needed some friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

The view was wonderful, the food was great, but our server acted and looked liked he'd rather be somewhere else. After our leftovers were brought to us I told him my thoughts on his service. He became defensive and said some very rude comments. The hostess and other servers really seemed to enjoy their jobs, and that was nice to see.

“We love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

What's not to like at Ray's. The view, ambiance, food, service - it's all outstanding. We would happily drive the two hours from Anchorage (where we live) for dinner at Ray's. This place easily rivals any high end restaurant found in Anchorage.

We had the beer battered prawns and prime rib. Absolutely delicious. We splurged and split a slice of cheesecake, which was heavenly. We can't wait to go back.
