Had the best wings I've had in a loooong time!! They were huge and just dripping with buffalo style sauce. I loved them! Our server was great and just attentive enough. Also had a white style mushroom pizza and pork quesadillas. The pizza was also excellent, I could have eaten the whole thing. The quesadillas were good, crispy tortilla and... More

We were in Woodbury, Mn and looking for a place to eat. Ray J's came to mind, but hadn't been there in years. We happened to get there during Happy Hour, but are not big drinkers so didn't matter until I found out that it included $3 off pizza. So i got the Hawaiian pizza and my friend got the... More

Ray J's is the place to meet. They have good food but today we went for Happy Hour. Happy Hour is from 3:00 to 6:00 pm (I think this is every day). $2.00 off all drinks, $3.00 off select pizza's & appetizers. I had a Bloody Mary ($4.25). It was good, not outstanding, but good enough that I would order... More

Ate here while staying at the Holiday Inn Express next door. The pizza was excellent and so was the service. The price was reasonable.

The first time I visited was a few weeks ago with a friend. The service was ok. When I brought my family here last week the service was horrible. Our waiter never came and our food was late. I even asked to speak with the manager and all she cared about was whether the food was good. No apology, no... More

Havent been here for quite a while but a groupon brought us back. Ate at... Very impressive bartenders... Very friendly and on top of their game. Work together well to serve a busy bar! Like to see that collaborative team approach. Very busy but willing to engage as if we were the only customers. Menu is grestly expanded... Definitely something... More

Thrifty Tip This place will occasionally offer vouchers on Groupon for half order of wings, 2 burger/sandwiches and 2 beers. If you are able to get one of these vouchers it is a great deal. If not their happy hours is also excellent. You can get a full order of wings for the price of a half order. The wood... More

We ate there last night. The service was very poor. We were ignored. The Garlic Dressing is salty. I wouldn't recommend them.

We came for dinner on a weeknight. The place was crowded and we had a short wait at the bar. The drinks were excellent, much better than average. When we finally got our booth, the service was very good. The menu has lots of choices. We found the portions to be more than we could handle. The pork spare ribs... More
