Good food, but priced high for the value. Service was adequate, but not overly friendly or customer focused. Felt like they wanted to turn the table fast and get the next "cruise" group in and out.

Three in our group ate the Copper River Salmon and said it was the best they ever had. I had Brandy Peppercorn Chicken,a tad too peppery and no brandy taste that I could tell of, but still pretty good. If you aren't a salmon (fish) lover there aren't a lot of choices though. Loved the Jack Daniels chocolate cake! Good service and even though busy our wait was minimal. It is a little pricey but then that's Alaska in general.

We tried many of the restaurants in Seward and this was our favorite! We had Alaskan King Crab and dessert. The food was off the charts good and service was terrific. I recommended it to others after we dined there!

We ate at Ray's twice during our recent stay in Seward. Both times were nice, but nothing special. First night we had the pasta, lots of sauce and not as much seafood as I anticipated, and the Thai dish -- very pretty but way too much food. The salads were great -- and the service is outstanding, better than most places we frequented during our stay.

The second night we had the crab legs, and they were nothing special. A few were cold to the touch, and very salty, so not fresh at all.

Overall, a nice place to eat, but nothing spectacular.

Seafood chowder and scallops were incredible but the king crab legs weren't that great. they were a little dried out.
