    The food was good but not exceptional. We had 2 waiters and this caused a small amount of confusion. They charged for bread which seems Odd for such a “high priced” restaurant. We felt that if the need exists, it would be better to increase the menu prices by $1 and not charge for bread. At the end of the meal We were brought “hot/wet” cloths…however None of us had that experience. Each said our cloth was more dry than damp and none were hot. My husband and I each ordered Coffee and it was not HOT….barely lukewarm. This was disappointing as well. Our food was Served hot and cooked to order and we enjoyed our entrees.

    We love this place but had not been back since Covid. We reserved on the river and they no longer had the buffet. The bread basket was dry and service was not great no fault of our server. She was wonderful. For the price point, just not what it used to be. The deviled eggs had no flavor and the price for two eggs was outrageous. If you remove self serve then you need to increase staffing. Well I may try for dinner, this will no longer be our go to for brunch.

    Food was delicious, cooked to perfection. Kinda pricey but as to be expected for Fine Dining. Waiter DJ was outstanding. We couldn’t decide on which dessert so, I picked one and he brought both and he paid for one of them, just so I knew which one to order “next time”.

    The food was excellent and our waiter was good. We love this restaurant, but we're disappointed that table was not cleared as we completed food. Empty appetizer dishes remained on table throughout the meal and empty drink glass was not removed. This was very surprising.

    The Black Grouper was prepared extraordinarily well. The wedge salad was the surprise winner on this visit. The caramelized bacon was unique and very flavorful. The other standout tonight was the duo servers for our table--RYAN and DAVID. I had asked for a well-paced dinner for this business meeting outing and they bought honored my request and it was flawless execution.

    The restaurant ambiance itself was beautiful and very inviting, our service was very good however our food was less desirable. The preparing and plating of the meals were on point the dishes simply had no flavor and from 2 home chefs, one of which actually meal preps we simply felt we could have stayed home and cooked a better meal.

    EXCELLENT!! Came for dinner and had no idea brunch was 'til 4p. Ouch! So we had to have brunch for my friend's birthday instead of dinner. Bagel was dry, but everything else, including: staff, service, other food and drinks was perfect! ($16 for an Old Fashioned at brunch. Yikes!). Nice atmosphere. Great view. Quiet place, even though full of people.

    First time back after some disappointing visits. Unfortunately still disappointed. Service was good, but the brunch à la carte menu was not good. We’ve been going off and on for 40 years, but it may be past its prime. Great location and setting on the river.

    I've been to Ray's many, many times, and the food is always great, and last night was the same, but the service is another story... We had arguably the WORST service I've ever experienced in a restaurant. We were there celebrating my bday, and had to wait for a table because the first one they tried to seat us at was very loud and on the main walkway. While waiting for our table, Ava served us drinks and apps at the bar, and she was phenomenal! 5 stars for Ava! Once we got to our table, we were excited because it was a great table in the corner by the window, Noah was our server, and it was all downhill from there. Drinks took 20-30 mins to come out. We had to ask him to clear all the dirty plates for us, vs him seeing all the dirty app plates and clearing them on his own. He never came to check on us for additional drinks or things in between courses. When the mains came out, we sat for at least 5+ mins without silverware when one of the people in our party finally got up to get silverware from the waiters station so we could eat before our food got cold. We had to ask for EVERYTHING. We had to ask for salt & pepper for the baked potatoes, drawn butter for our lobsters, etc. Noah knew we were there for my bday as the bday card from the restaurant was sitting in front of me, and at the end of the meal, he tried to bring the check and my mom said, aren't you going to bring something for her bday, and Noah said, "you said you didn't want dessert." Ultimately, we got a piece of pie to go. The worst part is, for a party of 6 or more gratituty is automatically included, so Noah still got a full tip even with that horrible service. Ray's is a restaurant you go to for a great experience and great food. The food and company were great, but the experience was not.

    Not sure if we hit it on a bad night. Had high expectations after reading the reviews and had chosen this for a special anniversary dinner. The service was slow and the server actually forgot to ask us if we wanted something to drink. The Ray’s Salad was supposed to have Mixed Greens as the base but only came with lettuce. We both ordered from the signature seafood menu. Both the fish were definitely super fresh - full marks for that. The trout my wife ordered was a bit too salty in its prep. My black grouper was good. Unlikely that I’ll drive 40 mins again for a second try.

    A lovely restaurant. Mike, our waiter did a great job. Entrées excellent as well as sides. Two complaints… The seafood gumbo looked great but a bit bland. Also, the blue cheese olives were factory made and not very tasty. Too good of a place not to have fresh blue cheese, stuffed olives, look forward to the next time.
