Great wings. The other food is OK, but the wings are terrific. The best time to come is happy hour for half price beer.

Visiting our daughter's family in Woodbury, eating at least one meal at Ray J's is now a must. It isn't often that "out-of-towners" can introduce their relatives to an overlooked dining experience in their own home town! On our 3rd visit to Woodbury, we ended up staying at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites and Ray J's is just across... More

The quality of food was very middle of the road. I wanted to get a non-carb loaded side, but they wanted to charge $2.00 to switch to steamed vegetables, for an already overpriced chicken sandwich. There are lots of people who want a relatively healthier option and penalizing that is ridiculous. This rating is really dragged down by the service.... More

There really is nothing to eat here that is healthy but that isnt why you would go right? Beer and the game is the reason and for that the food is ok but I do no eat that crap. So why did I go? I went with a bunch of friends (all over weight) who love fried wings and cheesy... More

This restaurant is walking distance from several hotels. The menu is quite wide. We had two different varieties of wings... both were excellent and large portions. The small greek salad was tasty and fresh.

The wings are delicious- we tried 1/2 order of the Asian wings and they arrived hot and covered in sauce! I had the Reuben sandwich and enjoyed the thick cut slices of meat - my husband tried the burger and said it was good - one choice of a side was tater tots which was a nice change from fries...

I had eaten at Ray J's on previous occasions and the food was delicious,the portions were large,and the service was outstanding. On 6/13 our family was there to celebrate a birthday. Three of us ordered the fish and chips on my recommendation, this time the fish was very dark brown which we mentioned to the waitress. We tried it but... More

Friday night and they were very busy. We were seated right away and the service was good. It was a nice to have a Reuben with quality corned beef; served with chips. We also had the steak bites and a side salad. Mixed drinks are reasonably priced. The sauce on the steak bites was too salty for my taste, but... More

Happy hour is from 3 to 6! Our usual is the big, tasty chicken wings. They serve a full order for the price of a half order. There are many other things to choose from. Great drink prices. Friendly, fun, staff people's.

I have dined here several times. My go to is the chicken wings during happy hour. The look like the size of a turkey wing and all the sauces are great. Sometimes they have a wine special and their selection is quite good. Larger restaurant with a good size bar area with games, great for happy hours.
