Referred by Hotel 360, we were able to sit at a table for 4 on the harbor side. Opened window, watched sea otter play, fishing boats coming in and going out. Food was great. Service great. Such the ambiance for an Alaskan harbor town. Hubby...More

Great location with view of the small boat harbor. Lots of menu choices and we all found things that tempted our tastebuds! It was, in fact, hard to choose with so many options. Crab legs were scrumptious! There were 4 in our group and we...More

We ate lunch here for my husband's birthday while on vacation in Seward. The food was excellent, fairly priced for the area, and the views were gorgeous. Great lunch spot. Good food, good service!

Great food selection and location. Service was excellent. We ordered the oysters (very fresh) and you cannot go wrong ordering any seafood dish.

We opted for a two-night stay in Seward before cruise embarkation and wanted a great seafood experience for dinner dining. Ray's Waterfront gave us the fresh, not-fried, seafood and great wine options. The view overlooking the harbor full of boats and seagulls added waterfront view.

Met family who live locally there. Yes pricey. Generally good. Not great. Enjoyed the muscles. Had the Dungeness crab here (gotta have it at least once in Alaska right?) But not sure I'd order it again. Sister in law thought her salmon was over cooked....More

This was my 3rd time eating at Ray's. I've always had a table close to the view of the marina, which adds to the ambience. The food is excellent, no matter what you order. Because of the high prices we ordered some of the cheapest...More
