It was a busy Friday night, and my husband and I went to Ray's after finding a good review of the restaurant online from Chef Michael Symon. We were in town for the adult easter egg scramble in Kent at the local park. Anyways, we went because my husband wanted to try the mo-fo burger which turned out to be disappointing. The bun was soggy, and the bacon tasted strange (and we know bacon!) We had the parmesan calamari which was very flavorful and delicious. The hot wings were the best, however our fries were soggy, brought out by the kitchen staff quickly without much thought and plopped them on our table. They were disgusting. How could they even let that leave their kitchen? Disappointing that a restaurant would even mess up on fries. Come on, get it together Ray's! A plus- the waitress was kind, and very attentive & hostess, friendly.

Service was amazing as was the food! Great burgers, wings and fries - you won't be disappointed. Decent beer selection and lots of tv's to watch a game. The town of Kent is great to take a walk around also, check out the area by the railroad tracks and water.

We''ve lived here for 25+ years and Ray's Place is always reliable. It's fun and steeped in tradion with very good casual food and a ton of different beers on tap. It can get a little hectic on weekends when Kent State is in session, but still always a good time. We love it.

Ray's Place will always be the main place to meet and dine in Kent. The first floor is more bar than restaurant and can become very loud. The second floor is quieter and has more room. Burgers are what it is all about and their burgers are great. Quite a variety is listed in the menu. Gertie's homemade chili is tasty, as are all of their side dishes. Complete dinners are also on the menu. The bar has a lot of different beers on draft and their wine list is adequate. You can never go wrong at Ray's!
