As we were driving around town looking for somewhere to eat dinner, we came across Ray's Cafe, located on the town's charming main street. There was live music that night, and the place was packed. We were worried we wouldn't be able to get in, but the hostess was really nice and found a table for us in the back section, where it was a little quieter. We didn't realize it was BYOB, but our waitress, Corrine, was really nice and directed us to a nearby wine store, which took only a few minutes to visit and return with wine. The food was delicious and plentiful. (I had the spaghetti and meatballs.) We were so happy we found this place and will surely return on our next visit to Spring Lake.
