    There was a event outside the restaurant where you could here the drums and tambourines and chanting inside the restaurant where we were seated. My husband loved his PORCINI-RUBBED BONE-IN RIBEYE, it’s one of the best he’s had. My daughter enjoyed the Jumbo Large Crabcakes as well. I had HONEY GLAZED CEDAR PLANK SALMON with honey, quinoa & farro, sauteed kale, roasted cauliflower. I was very disappointed and expected more for the price, the salmon had NO flavor, it came with 1 cauliflower floret that was split in half. Quino,farro was dry and needed a sauce. Would not order again, but my family thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

    Our waiter was extremely rude. He took offense to us asking too many questions and even debated whether we needed small forks to shuck our oysters. He also did a bad job of describing the special for the day. Totally different meal than he described though he had his glasses on. Very dismissive. It took away from our experience.

    This restaurant seemed to us to be trying to be a top notch restaurant but falling a bit short. The prices were high, the servers were rushing us and not very friendly, the food was good, the cocktails were mediocre, and none of it was worth the prices.

    Everything we had was very good but the she crab soup was amazing. Our server suggested it and he was right. It had the most amazing flavor. I’m a Chardonnay drinker and I prefer a oak flavor. I didn’t see one that I knew. I asked the server for a suggestion and what he brought and it was perfect.

    We went to Ray’s for lunch. The service was excellent. Wait staff were very attentive and knew the menu well. Drinks were wonderful and delicious. The bartender obviously knew his/her craft. We all ordered lobster cob salads. Very delicious. Fresh ingredients and wait time for the food was good. Nice ambience and atmosphere. Highly recommended and we’d come back.

    Started with ordering a margarita and a Mia Tia drink. The server (girl) comes back to our table and says that they couldn’t make me a Mia Tia because they had no fruit. So I ordered a margarita. Then ordering the dinner. I ordered a crab cake and gumbo We live on a island where we have excellent fresh sea food restaurants that slept in the Gulf of Mexico last night. My cake was bad and dry. My wife ordered ordered the chicken breast and that to was so dry that she couldn’t cut it. Send it back. Service was bad with long waits to ask if we needed anything. We had to get an other server to help us get more drinks. Our server forgot to put in the order for gumbo. I finished my cake before she got hers back. We were so disappointed that my wife went to speak to the manger. He couldn’t believe what he heard. A 5 star restaurant it’s not. To top it of we order more drinks and a key lime pie. Well we got a cheesecake. The manager came back to our table and told him what just happened. He still couldn’t believe it. Still didn’t get the key lime.

    Started out well as we had early dinner reservations. Drinks and apps came out quickly. The issue we had was before we finished our apps they began bringing out our entrees without clearing the table. The entrees staggered out while we were still working on our apps. We basically had to clear our table to make room for our entrees. Just seemed that the timing could have been better managed. The food was good but things began fell apart from there. Typically once our entrees come out someone would check to see how everything came out or if we needed drinks. That never happened. We often tried to gain the attention of the servers but it was like we were invisible. We finished our meal with no drinks and finally got the attention of the hostess. She came over and seemed frustrated that we asked for service. Once our waiter came over he was very apologetic and basically reminded us how busy they were.
