Website menu looked compelling so we stopped on our way to hotel. Website was undersold! Food was amazing! Wine and beer selection excellent, could also purchase wine or beer to consume onsite or take home. Service was excellent, especially bartender JASON. A hidden gem. Highly...recommend.More

Busy day but the staff acknowledged us and soon brought water and took our drink orders after finishing taking orders at a 10 top. Yes you can be short staffed and still give good service. The barnyard is delicious and the fig flatbread is fabulous...but we are both craving the amazing creamy garlic dressing. Get wine and beer selection. Stop by and enjoy. Also cool local artists 👩‍🎨More

We go to Rays, pretty much weekly. Not always to eat but to get craft beers & hard seltzers from the beer cave. they have the best selection in this area. We love the food as well. We often dine in or sit on the...patio. If you enjoy cigars you can also smoke them on the patio as well. We do also, occasionally, order carry out. We love that you can choose any single beer or bottle of wine, in the store, to take to your table to have with your meal. The owners, servers, chef, etc. are all wonderful. We highly recommend Rays. We love it.More

I like to go here to take customers for lunch. It is always nice and quite and the menu is excellent. Everything always seems so fresh. You can also swing by in the afternoon or evening for a nice selection of Beers and wines to...choose from.More

On a previous visit I had the absolutely best Reuben sandwich I’ve ever eaten. And I’ve eaten a lot of them! This time I had the Cuban sandwich, which was wonderful but since I haven’t had that many to compare I can’t give it a...similar “best” rating. The pickle soup, a special for the night, was also quite tasty and I’d order it again. My wife had the Bolognese, which is her test for how well a restaurant can do with the basics. It passed with flying colors! Rebecca’s attentive and friendly service topped off a wonderful dining experience!More

We like going to Ray's at least twice a month. They have a great selection of craft beer and wine. Their Asian salmon sandwich is the best. We tried ordering other items from the menue. But with no success. So we always go back to...the Asian salmon. Service and ambiance is Ok.More

First time here... and the food and overall service quite good. Wine Section of the establishment is most notable. The Beer selection away from the bar is impressive to a point. The Food was delicious. Now for the Beer at the dining table... selections are...too limited. I guess it is perfect for those that don't know much about malt brews and don't really care what they get. You won't find guidance toward differentiating lager-pilsner, gose's, porters, IPAs, kolchs, radlers; most will likely order a fruity cider from the bar. This is not a "brew person's place". Had a few good ones. There was one that I thought was a "keeper" ..claimed to be a nondescript IPA "shake". I tasted it and thought... now that is more than good. When I asked the waitress for more information on the brew (brewery, ABV.IBU, malts, etc).... she returned from the bar and said that they ran out of the beer I ordered and instead gave me this one. Two ways to take this: (1) hey, but a very good brew and (2) you never gave me what I ordered and did not inform me of it. Coup de grase' when the waitress stated it's just another "INDIAN PALE ALE" : okay... she does not know beers & ales. This place is very nice.. prices are reasonable... as per previous statement.. wine selection very good. But I believe I will select my INDIA PALE ALE elsewhere in the future. Make sure you get what you're ordered.More

I had the seafood trio. The scallops were excellent but the fish of the day (orange roughy) was dry and rubbery. The cheesy ciabatta bread was great but the shrimp were definitely not fresh. The roasted veggies were very good but the green beans were...blah at best. My husband had Ray's ribeye steak which was very well seasoned but not medium as ordered. Timing is everything. Our waitress was friendly and provided us with decent service. Not sure we'll go again as the food is too pricey to be that inconsistent.More
