Love seafood so decided to try this new place. My wife and I were not disappointed; everything was wonderful! The Wellfleet oysters were so fresh, the fried clams barely breaded and delicious, and the sheepshead fish meal beautifully plated. And dessert too good to skip!...The prices were acceptable, and the wait staff delightful! A perfect evening!More

Delicious cocktails and wonderful oysters! We have never seen a more lovely presentation for oysters and they were superbly shucked. I was not very impressed with the crab cakes and the fish and chips could be improved. This is not the best place for desserts....They sound good on the menu but don't deliver. Abagail did a nice job with our service. We will return for the oysters and the Agave cocktail. The restaurant was clean and the decor was fun and they have parking!More

This was our first visit last night and we weren’t disappointed. The restaurant is lovely with a cool vibe, excellent food, cocktail cocktails and service. Our server Abby guided us through the menu and our taste buds were very pleased ! We loved watching the...bartender expertly craft the cocktails and even checked in with us. This establishment definitely raises the bar in Asheville !More

Oysters were the best I’ve had. Eliza, our server, recommended a great bottle of wine. Comfortable with a high level of service. Can’t wait to go back.

Eliza was fantastic! Took awesome care of us and made the experience great. Covid policies made me feel very comfortable and the food was AMAZING. We put in for a 7:15 reservation and we're seated exactly on time. Would Def suggest.

Jettie Rays is one of my favorite places in Asheville. Make sure to ask for Eliza, she is super dope. Amazing service, knowledgeable and more than accommodating staff and always a great selection for oysters and fresh seafood!

Eliza was one of the best servers I have ever had!!! She was knowledgeable about the menu and very fun. The food was worth every penny snd the outdoor dining did not feel like outdoor dining. 10/10 we absolutely will be back. Thanks Eliza 💜💜

Eating out during COVID is stressful, however Jettie Rae’s was the calm in the storm we were looking for. Heated outdoor dining, excellent food, but more importantly, the service was excellent! Eliza was on point. Food was fantastic and we will be back!

We went as a family of four because of the reviews. Average to nice facility, excellent staff. We had the shrimp and grits and shrimp etoufee. My son had the fish and chips. Personally, I liked my shrimp and grits but the other two were...so so on the shrimp etoufee. We are originally from the gulf coast and are seafood connoisseur's. The shrimp etoufee we get down south usually had less of a "mole" flavor and more of a tomato base, still good though. My son was satisfied with the fish and chips. Although I am not an oyster person but I'd bet that is where this restaurant shines.More
