We were here for Sunday brunch buffet. Scenic view and great service! But their foods are not so impressive based on its price of $42.50 per person and some juices are not included in the price such as apple and pineapple juice even they are from bottles. None of the menus was superb or impressive.
Wonderful, especially with the holiday music and decor.
Service was great. Food OUTSTANDING. We had a very nice time will go again soon.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary
Our server, Kay, was awesome!! She was friendly and attentive.
I love the restaurant. I’ve definitely had better service in previous visits, but it was a very busy night.
4 start Environment, 3 start food , 2 start price !
Awesome as always!
Fresh food and impeccable service. We celebrated a birthday, and we felt well taken care of from cake cutting to capturing the moment with a group photo.
Great lunch with a friend .
Lovely restaurant with a beautiful view. Table spacing is tight and pricing is steep, but, you get what you pay for!! Not an everyday place, but for special occasions no place better.
We had a great experience at Ray's on the River celebrating a birthday and staff luncheon. Jessica and Ali were great servers and made sure we were well tended to. Thank you for an enjoyable and delicious experience.
Excellent service. Their method of assigning two servers to each table works very well. Food and drinks were excellent.
Beautiful place. I’ve actually had better steaks elsewhere but my husband enjoyed the scallops. Wait staff was great and very attentive.
We went for our anniversary while in Atlanta for the weekend. I had read that the restaurant was considered one of the 50 most romantic restaurants in America in a recent article by either Conde Nast or USA Today and booked our reservation. There was nothing inherently bad but neither was the food memorable or interesting. The quality of the ingredients seemed high, but everything we ordered lacked any seasoning or flavor especially the mediocre crab cakes(I have had significantly better crab cakes at several restaurants). I was especially disappointed when the waiter brought a complimentary dessert to the table next to us for their anniversary but offered us nothing even though he was aware that it was our anniversary too. Overall this was a disappointing experience, especially considering how much we spent. I wouldn't recommend this mediocre restaurant to anyone, it is grossly overrated.
Awsome place food and service topnotch. Will recommend this to friends and family.
First time here at this location. Previously visited the Killer Creek location. First I notice was the valet parking service which was A+. I truly enjoyed the atmosphere. Each location has its own unique vibe. And the steaks were PERFECT.
Ali provided awesome service
Wonderful experience! My Party of Three enjoyed a small table right up against the glass with full view of the beautiful River.
My mother’s 70th birthday dinner.
Thanks for making my mother's birthday a special one
The hot seafood tower was absolutely amazing. Be sure to pair it with a glass of bubbles. The cocktails were great but our favorite was definitely the Manhattan. Our server Christina was awesome. We placed our complete order at once and she coursed it out beautifully. The clearing, remarking, and pacing of the meal seem like small details, but when executed well they have a great impact on the dining experience as a whole. Christina nailed the entire experience. She made our special evening delightful and carefree. Go for the delicious food, keep going back for the elevated service and care.
Wow great food great service
My side dish was over salted they took it of the bill. Waiter was friendly but forgot the bread with the appetizers.
Furniture is old and used up. My seat was sat trough and very unconformable.
It is okay but for sure far away from 5 star review
Although the time between our order and the food arriving was longer than I preferred, our server was fantastic and kept us laughing. Once the food arrived, all dishes were hot, fresh and very flavorful. We never felt pressured or rushed as we were there for our company holiday lunch.
I would suggest showing up 15 min prior to your reservation with your entire party and then check into the front desk. Otherwise, you may be waiting for 15 to 30 minutes past your reservation time to be seated.
As a note, if you have a shellfish allergy do not eat anything that is fried, the same fryer is used.
The restaurant was cold and dark. The food and servers are so so.
From the moment we stepped out of the car, the staff at Ray's on the River was gracious, thoughtful, professional. The food was hot and delicious. The manager came by our table twice making sure all was well.
The food is typically very good but last night was a huge disappointment. Our entrees came out lukewarm. I had the grouper and there was a very bad odor to the fish. The taste of the fish was so bad that I only ate 2 bites. I didn’t say anything because I eat here often. I just assumed this was an off night for the chef. I hope they do better in the future.
We loved the ambience. Our waitress, Ashley, was very attentive. The caesar salad was great, filet was good, the halibut was tasteless even after 2 tries.
This is the 2nd time I have been and the 1st time experiencing the buffet.....food was great and our server was even better!!
Engagement! She said YES 🎉
The ambiance was very good. Service was also excellent. We were a little early but were seated right away.
We ordered two entrees and two sides. The 3 cheese Mac and cheese was delicious as was the potato au gratin. The grouper was very small, but tasted fine. The bed of Brussels sprouts were also good. The swordfish was cooked a little too long and on the dry side.
Desserts were excellent (had the brownie sundae and the praline basket).
All of it ran close to $60.00 and we felt it was good value for what we received. Would most likely visit again for lunch.
We had a very long wait. 2,5 hrs for a simple lunch at a not very busy time. Fish was very overcooked.
Rays is the best on the river.
We did not know up front that we would have a buffet meal. would never have chosen that.
We had two elderly people with us. I feel the restaurant was overbooked(had to wait a while) and we refused to be seated in "the tent". We LOVE your restaurant but would NOT repeat it for Thanksgiving.
We had a 6:15 p.m. reservation and we weren’t sat until after 7:00 p.m. although the food was great it ruined the whole experience.
We had resos for 615 with a toddler in tow. Arrived and said 30 minute delay. We get it it’s thanksgiving. However we weren’t seated till 718. Completely not ok. Don’t overbook. Then by the time we had dinner they had run out of certain items.
As a military spouse we made a reservation to go with my husband and kids to have our first thanksgiving dinner away from home. The reservation was at 6pm and we waited almost two hours to be seated. We drove two hours to get to this place from where my husband is stationed at. I was hoping to have a nice dinner and make it a memorable one. However, this was not my experience. The server was not to be found for about 10 minutes after we were seated, the host didn’t tell us where the buffet was. We had to request someone to come serve our drinks. I asked for a glass of champagne and he was never around for me to request another. The place was about to close, we were rushing to eat and we didn’t get to enjoy the food and eat as we wished. We were told we were going to be seated at 6:15. We were there at 5:30. it is important to value your customer time and make an effort to make things happen. My kid was still eating when the serve asked if we were done and wanted the check. It was just very inappropriate, he didn’t even get to eat dessert. Overall I don’t like to write reviews especially bad ones, but I felt the need for future customers to know what to expect especially on holidays. Very disappointed to have taken my family to eat here.
