Okay service. Staff were neither rude nor friendly. Excessive overpriced and average food. Tourist trap. Location is right in the heart of the harbor.

My wife and I finally got to try Ray's just before they closed for the winter. I got the seafood pasta and my wife got the cod and fries. I loved my pasta and would go back for more any time. My wife said the fish was cooked perfectly and the fries are our favorite type (breaded maybe), nice and... More

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. Our server Ryan remembered all our orders w/o writing them down. He even took pictures of our group for us. Casual dining with fine dining food at reasonable prices. What a great experience.

We ate here on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant is an attractive seafood restaurant on the waterfront and we were seated at nice table overlooking the harbour We were bought the menus and a basket of bread as soon as we sat which was a nice touch. However our waiter asked us immediately what we wanted to drink before we... More

We came a little too early for dinner, a little after 4pm. However, the receptionist suggested we order appetizers from the lunch menu in then wait for the dinner to start at 5pm in order to get a window seat. We did that and we were treated to a fabulous view of the harbor framed by mountains across the sound.... More

I had a large bowl of their soup of the day which was a spicy sausage, and very tasty! I consumed all the great bread provided as well. We shared a shrimp boat. My companion with celiac pieced together a meal with a pecan grape salad adding some of the shrimp. Nice beer and wine selection!

Ate here after rolling into Seward one evening. Arrived 15 minutes before closing. Great bread. Calamari was over cooked, but the dipping sauce was great. Clam chowder was very different than expected. Meat in chowder seemed like chicken. Alaska King Crab legs (1.5 pounds at $56) were dry and not moist. But our waitress was fantastic. I'll look for another... More

I refuse to believe any negative reviews or any reviews less than 5 because we have come to Rays 3 yrs in a row and every time we have dined here, it has been nothing less than 5 stars. We love the food, the service and nothing beats the views! I should also mention that when we go to Seward... More
