“Good meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2011

Sadly we weren't able to get a table by the window, but we enjoyed our visit to Ray's. We had the halibut cheeks and the salmon cedar plank and both were reasonably priced (for Alaska) and very tasty. Portion sizes were completely acceptable (for us Brits).

Reasonably priced FRESH and DELICIOUS salmon and halibut! Great service. Food delivered hot and perfectly done. Can't beat the harbor view! A definite must!

“Might be somewhat overhyped.....but a safe bet.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2011

It is a decent restaurant but should not be getting all these fantastic reviews. The view is beautiful as it sits right next the harbor. The food is average - no worse and no better than an average restaurant. I had the NY steak; they barely managed to cook it rare. It also appeared to be a strange cut as one side was considerably thinner than the other. The peel shrimp are OK BUT please bring some finger bowls or at least some moist wipes. Prices are on the steep side but then again; Seward probably needs to cash in during the summer.

“Ray's Sockeyes it to you!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

Ray's remains consistently great. During our recent visit, we ate there 4 times in 3 days. The fish is always fresh and well prepared. The sides are excellent. They do a wonderful job with french fries if you can fit them into your diet. The children with us were treated with care and the service all around was excellent. Of course, they began to recognize out little party of 4 and the service people were so friendly and cordial they made you want to return. The wine list is fine, the seating and window views is wonderful and the bar beverages perfect. The children enjoyed the items on the children's menu and were fascinated by the activity of the boats and critters right outside the restaurant. I have eaten at Ray's in the past and continue to be pleased with each visit. If you can get there when fresh sockeye salmon is on the menu, don't pass it by. We ate at two other popular establishments right nearby and they couldn't hold a candle to Ray's.
