Our dinner at Ray’s was fantastic. It was one of our best evenings in a long time. We enjoyed our entire evening. Really enjoyed our cocktails in the lounge with the live music too. We will definitely be back.

Red Snapper and honey glazed Sammon were great....so was calamari.
Scallops were a bit too raw.

Had a delightful experience at Ray’s! The food was amazing. Went for my 35th birthday dinner and we were not disappointed. Our server was hilarious and attentive. Will definitely visit again and excited to visit the other Ray’s properties in the area.

Reservations are required at Rays. It is beyond irratating that everytime we dine there it is at least 30 minutes before we sit. A 630p reservation turns into a 7p reservation. For thecamount of money it cost to eat here, if i have a 630p reservation, i expext to be seated no later than 635p, no excuse, get it together, Canoe doesn't seem to suffer from the issue.

Rays was an excellent place for an intimate anniversary occasion. The food was excellent the staff was excellent and the ambiance was perfect. I had blackened shrimp and blue cheese NY strip which was fantastic. We all enjoyed dinner and the complimentary mousse cake is to die for.

The best quality service and food. The servers Anthony and Murphy were an awesome tag team. The service is friendly and we were able to sit and watch those drift down the river and have fun.

The evening was superb!! We were a bit late but they accommodated us promptly. We were celebrating Brynn's birthday and they made the entire evening special!! Taylor delivered excellent service; the food was perfect, and the view of the river added to the overall ambiance. I highly recommend Rays on the River!

Mike was beyond fantastic. The scallops were underdone - gooey on the outside and inside. Crab cakes were solid. She crab soup was perfect. Asparagus had great flavor, but tough ends were not cut off. Key lime pie was excellent

Food was great and portions good. The Scallop entree I had was not very warm, especially the risotto. Our server, Michael I think, did a great job. The air conditioning was not cool enough and the music speaker over our table was too loud.

Service was very good, we were never offered any bread and when I noticed other tables receiving bread I asked and was told they forgot. The Calamari was too salty. My daughter and I had the surf and turf, the lobster was very good, both steaks were too salty to eat

Everything was nice. Waiter was not attentive. We had to ask for bread. Took forever to get another drink or refill. The butter cake which is Ray’s grandma’s recipe was the best!

Excellent food and service. We had to wait longer than expected for our table, but that was due to the weather. Would return for another occasion.

Great 97th birthday lunch at Ray's. Beginning with our server Yan and finishing a great lunch with multiple desserts could not have been better. Plan on being back for 98th.

Seriously NOT impressed... the food was ok not standout ... service is very blah we had to look for waiter then ask for bread and still wait. ... long wait between appetizers and meal .... none of the staff very friendly ... and seeing the attire on some of the guests was a turn off especially when u have dress code posted ! Probably won’t return ...

Everything was great. If I had anything to improve upon it would be: the server was a bit pushy during our conversation and did not keep our water glass filled.

Randle was our server! Amazing!! Professional and communicated well when the restaurant became busy. The gentleman assisting him was extremely unpleasant and rude. Murphy was not our server but helped us with the bill using gift cards. The food and drinks were wonderful!
