Diner Reviews
  • "This was the second time visiting Ray's on the River, unfortunately the service was way below the first time. On the other hand the quality of the food was as good as the first time, needless to say very very good. I cannot place my finger on what happened this time. First I had to go to the hostess and request for a waiter to visit our table, yes it took that long. At the end of dinner we were being serve by two waiters and none of them knew exactly what was going on (having to explain to both of them everything). Definitely will give it another opportunity since the quality of the food is good and the variety of the menu is well deserving."

  • "My wife and I went to Ray's to celebrate our anniversary. The seating area was lovely as we looked right out onto the Chattahoochee. There was live music but it wasn't too loud for a romantic setting. Our waiters were very attentive to us and made excellent recommendations for each course of our meal. They were also happy to take pictures of us. Our meal was excellent from start to finish. Our entrées were prepared to perfection and the waiters gave us a complimentary desert for our anniversary. We have gone to Ray's for Sunday brunch and special dinners and we have been very happy and pleased each time. You can never go wrong with Ray's! "

  • "After being seated approximately 15 minutes after the reservation (it was a busy Easter w/e); the service was fantastic. Brian was one of the team of attendants who handled the area admirably. The food was great. Presentation was lacking but very tasty and steak was a little overcooked for medium but overall good. The band was fantastic. There was a long break between performances and that when I noticed that the noise level was great for the number of people in the restaurant. Overall, very good experience. "

  • "It had been 8 or 9 years since we had been to Ray's On The River. It will not be that long again. Food was excellence, service was very good. Only thing stopping service from being excellence was my water glass was empty and I had to ask to have it refilled. I tried making reservation on Open Table but it wouldn't take. I went to Ray's web site and made my reservation on Open Table there. I did not receive any points doing it this way, I would have received 100 points if the Open Table site had worked."

  • "My 3rd year Wedding Anniversary was spent with Ray's on the River, and my experience was one that would be remember for life! My wife walk in looked around and smiled at me. I knew than that I made the rite reservation, As we reached the table she stop looked around once more and notice that there wasn't any roses on any other tables. I explain that Ray's on the River allow me to call head and request them. Ray's on the River made my Anniversary beautiful that a night to remember from dining in to the ride home! Thank you Ray's on the River.."

  • "We dined early in the evening since we were off to a show. We shared a crab cake appetizer. It was good, but it had a bit more filler than I prefer. I ordered the shrimp and grits and my companion ordered the Tuna. Both were excellent. The shrimp and grits had a bit of spice to it, that I really enjoyed. Both of us cleaned our plates. Unfortunately we didn't have time for dessert. We were also very pleased with the selection of outstanding wines by the glass. Overall, we would definitely return. "

  • "From the time we arrived until we left everything was perfect. Table was ready immediately. It was my wife's 70ish birthday and we brought the whole family and grand kids. The red roses were beautiful. Our waiter was very patient with our wild group. Have recommended it to several friends. We took pictures of everyone by the river, we will have great memories of our time there."

  • "Nice restaurant with great view of lake. Food was delicious with plenty of options. I am considered the Red Velvet Queen, however, I must commend Rays for their RV cupcakes.... I thought I had made them myself. Service was excellent. I especially liked the team service where everyone helped make this a good dinning experience. Will definitely return and recommend."

  • "Hostess was a snob, waited 20 minutes in the bar for two glasses of wine then gave up. Had the Salmon Oscar and the Bernaise sauce was too salty. Wife had the scallops which were no better than average. Waiter, Adam, was the only highlight of an otherwise I impressive evening."

  • "It has been several years since I dinned at Ray's. I selected you for a luncheon for me and two of my dear friends who I had not seen in quite a while. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we plan on getting together at Ray's every couple months. The food and service were awesome. Thank you, Anita Jones"

  • "I went to this beautiful restaurant for my anniversary and it was fantastic. It was dinner, so the sun was setting upon the river and the view is amazing at night. The food was delectable. I had the crabcake for an appetizer and my entrée was the lobster tail mash potatoes and asparagus. Needless to say, I didn't have anything to take home in a to go box. :) After dinner we sat by river and just enjoyed the ambiance and the flow of the water. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone planning anything special or would just like to have dinner. Really great place and the staff were so sweet and helpful and they did it all with a genuine smile."

  • "I take friends and family out to Rays a few times every year. My brother and his son were in town for the Masters. I had taken them here before, and they were delighted to be going back. I like Rays because the service is unrushed, the noise level allows for good conversation, the food is always top notch, and the wines and drinks are well matched to the food. The waitstaff is knowledgeable, attentive, articulate, and highly professional. The experience is never hit and miss. On the contrary, it is reliably outstanding. There are only a handful of such restaurants in Atlanta. Among the "standard classics", I put Rays right at the top of the list."

  • "So many people that I know love Ray's....I really want to too! It is close to our home and has a lovely atmosphere. Unfortunately, I am often disappointed by the food. This last time we were there before a performance at the Cobb Energy Center, they were out of entrees at 6:30 p.m. and my coffee was lukewarm and my second choice entree was o.k. This place is a little too expensive for o.k food. Luckily my date was awesome (my husband) and the performance at Cobb was outstanding so our date night was still great with little help from Ray's. Sorry Ray, I want to love you but I don't think I ever will."

  • "Originally our group was for 4 people. I made changes to the reservation a couple if days in advance - party of 5. I also noted that we would be celebrating birthdays. Confetti marked the table but there was only service setting for 4. This made our 5th guest really feel like a fifth wheel and made me feel bad for her. The wait staff didn't notice and I had to ask for it. Food was great, service good, wished we could have been seated at a table by the window looking at the river."

  • "I had the shrimp cocktail (which were as big as prawns really) and the spinach salad. Both were excellent but the spinach salad was drowning in dressing. Next time I will ask for it on the side. Ate out on the patio with a wonderful view of the Chattahoochee river...so serene watching the river flow. Our server, Donald, was very attentive and friendly!"

  • "I have eaten at Ray's on the River many times and have never been disappointed. This time was no exception, we were celebrating my mother's 89th birthday and it was everything I had come to expect from Ray's. The food and service was excellent, it was a little crowded and noisy but it also was Prom season so that had to be taken into consideration. I would highly recommend Ray's for someone looking to celebrate a special occasion or just wanting a first class dining experience."

  • "our dining experience was not very pleasant due to a large party seated directly next to us. it would have been much more relaxing and enjoyable if the large noisey party was in an area not directly in the main dining area where one would expect a more quiet and less loud dining experience. the management asked if we would like to relocate due to the disruptive party without us saying a word to them which indicates to us that we were not the only patrons that had this experience. the food and service was great as well as the view of the river and the surrounding area."
