Our dinner here was very good. Our group had a great time here. We ordered crab legs, salads, burgers, fish & chips, etc. It was all very good. A nice place to come for dinner. The service was very good as well.

Ray's has a very nice location on the waterfront in Seward and we had two great late lunches there. Service was prompt and friendly and, most importantly, the food was excellent!

The cedar plank salmon at Ray's was very good. The fish was well-prepared, moist and flavorful, and the dish was nicely presented. Good location right along the waterfront and boat harbor. I thought the prices were a bit too high for this type of restaurant,...More

We stop at Ray's every summer for the Alaskan King Crab and the Artichoke/crab dip (BEST in the WORLD). It's a family favorite in our travels and our daughter always gets a crab leg dinner for her birthday since we usually spend it in Alaska...More

That was a great treat - food pretty good. Excellent fish and chips. But the best part, by far, is the view of the harbor with the mountains as a back-drop. Really fabulous!
