Thanksgiving Dinner Special Menus & Offers
Let us serve you in celebration of Thanksgiving at Ray's on the River!
Fantastic food, service, and ambience. Great place to celebrate a birthday or special occasion.
I was extremely disappointed in our experience. The food was just ok and took forever to come out and the server was inattentive. A poor, poor job by what is billed as a legendary steak house.
The staff and food were outstanding, this was a special occasion and all had a enjoyable meal & experience.
Fabulous setting for us to celebrate our 35th Anniversary!
We had a lovely dinner sitting outside with heaters. Service was fabulous and our food was delicious. We look forward to our next visit!
I made reservations well in advance for my wife's birthday, and took the 1hr. And ten minutes drive from Lake Spivey in Jonesboro through rush hour traffic on a Friday evening. We were motivated.
We were seated quickly upon arrival and introduced to our wait staff who never returned except for the occasional "every thing ok?" as one zoom by our table. They never asked if we needed drink refill. The server appeared bored and uninterested. This is still one of my favorite restaurants and we will return, but not quickly.
I have had dinner at Rays on the river several times over the last 20years. Wed eve 11/18 was he first time in over 5 years. It was my wife's and my 25th anniversary. I made the reservation on line and made is crystal clear in the "special request" box that it was a very special occasion, our 25th, and wanted a romantic table atmosphere and a few candles on the table. When we got to the restaurant, not one person from the front reservation counter to the waiter greeted up with Happy Anniversary. They sat us in a booth instead of a table by the window overlooking the river and lights, and not one damn candle. There was no special treatment whatsoever. They only offered three selections of wine by the glass for each grape variety, ridiculous "by the glass" prices. I ordered a dozen oysters on the half shell as I saw a man in e bar area eating them. they looked good, nice big shells/oysters. The ones they served me were so dinky small, I could have put all 12 in my shirt pocket. total waste of money. dinner was good, but not great. bottom line is between a drink a piece in the bar, dinner and wine, I spent nearly $400. the evening at Rays on the River was very disappointing to say the least. More than likely, We won't be back.
Great Service Khalil is the best
Amazing food and cocktails!
Rays on the River was an outstanding experience. I had been wanting to try it for years and finally got the chance for my birthday celebration. Our waiter was intuitive to our needs and served us to perfection. Looking out at the Chatahocee River at night provided a unique experience as we dined. We will be going back.
We absolutely love Ray’s. Heather gives impeccable service always. Our bartenders Derrick and Kalil took amazing care of us. Ray’s never disappoints.
Very nice staff was excellent
Only downside was we had to wait about 20 minutes past our reservation time. Everything else was fabulous. Our servers were fantastic.
Our very first time and boy was it wonderful! I would highly recommend it.
Excellent! Great service, especially valet staff having to shuttle because parking lot was full. They went above and beyond to minimize any inconvenience.
Parking lot was full - no valet parking available. Service was terrible. Waiter did not refill drinks or clear plates between courses. Steak was not cooked as ordered. Sent back twice.
Awesome evening sat outside and enjoyed the view along with amazing food.
Great food and view...nice ambiance0
We had lunch at the outside dining area. Everything about our dining experience was great; our servers Ms. Helen and Tastyn were great. The weather was awesome so sitting out and taking in the view was so pretty and relaxing. Then the food, the food was so good. We brought our appetite yesterday so we at a lot...lol. The scallops and the brownie sundae were two of my favs. The warm bunt cake keeps honorable mention since we always get it. Looking forward to going back.
If one is hungry, don't go there. The portions are miniscule. Unless a person wants to spend a lot of money on appetizers and extra entrees, not worth it.
Normally, we have excellent service at Ray’s. This past Friday we had an 8:00pm reservation. The waiters were slow, we had to ask for bread three times. The mix green salad was withered. I hope this one experience is not the beginning of a pattern for Ray’s!
Our waiters (Mike and Mike) created a great atmosphere, were very attentive and made the night that much better. Thanks for good food, ambiance and waiters.
My teen son brought me here to celebrate my birthday. Beautiful ambiance, great service, and delicious food. We enjoyed our evening so much. Thank you!
Wonderful all all fronts just wish they would have honored moving us from the door to the outside. It got very chilly at our table!
Everything was amazing!
Exception of the creamed spinach, it was VERY bland, not good at all
Always a wonderful experience with exceptional service. They even give a 20% discount to Veterans! You can’t top that!! We had the best oysters ever and the entrees are always out of this world!
It was truly a fantastic meal and I cannot wait to come back!! 5 stars all the way!!!
The ribeye was similar to Longhorns the filet was cooked rare we sent it back and came back perfect medium rare excellent meat
Delicious steaks paired with a nice ambience and good wine - live music wasn't too loud. Made for a great evening.
The restaurant sits aside the river so the view is terrific. There is appropriate live dinner music in the bar and is piped through the dining room. We were there to celebrate Veterans Day and they offered vets a discount ! Rays is a special place for sure.
Ordered the lobster roll and the crab cake. Crab cake was spot on but the lobster although tasty was overcooked and chewy
With a beautiful setting and excellent service, Ray’s on the River is a beguiling place for good food. Prices are rather high for the quality of the food served, but all in all, eating there is a good experience.
We enjoyed the ambiance, light music and great food! Crab cakes were excellent, gumbo, blackened salmon salad, shrimp & grits and creamed spinach. We appreciated the free champagne & desert in celebration of our 30th anniversary
Everything was great the food was delicious and the drinks was on point. Need to add 1 more crab cake to order
Ordered horseradish with steak and never received.
This is one of my favorite Atlanta restaurants... We sat outside with the lovely river view. The food was very good. Also, the waiters were great.
Very good Food, I will certainly return for to experience another Great Meal.
