Food was good. But host was extremely rude. Extremely. He managed to insult several members of our group, loudly. If it wouldn't have drawn more attention to our group, we would have walked out. You need reservations, which we did make just before we went. It would have been better if they just said no.

Always a good dinner at rays. I had the crab stuffed halibut it was fantastic. It is expensive so look at spending $100-$200 for 2 to 3 people.

My husband and I had dinner here with another couple on a recent trip to Seward. This was the best meal of our two week trip! My husband and one of our friends had the halibut special, one had king crab legs and I had the seafood alfredo/fettucine. The seafood Alfredo was outstanding. The other meals were equally delicious.

Avoid this restaurant! Aside from the nice view, it's not worth it. We ate here after asking the hostess and waitress if they serve local shrimp. Both said "everything is local". The shrimp dish was good, but the halibut fish and chips was small and dry. The worst halibut fish and chips we had on our trip...and it was the... More

Recommended by our hotel. As most restaurants in Kenai Peninsula, not an inexpensive restaurant. Food was good. Had glazed salmon entree and spouse had grilled salmon. Maybe it's just me, but I didn't like eating off the thick plank of wood that hundreds had eaten previously. Don't know how they clean that wood well enough. Loved the marine view and... More

Best restaurant for sea food on the waterfront. Service was good given that the place is packed and a wait time of 30 to 45c minutes is commo.
