Took my fiancé for his birthday. Great location for date night, when the sun starts setting the river looks really nice. You’re able to take your drinks and walk by the lake as well. Not too pricey, overall good experience.

A wonderful experience. The service was impeccable as Lynne, our server provided an atmosphere that made us feel like we were in her home as friends versus customers in a restaurant on any given night. This along with great food and a special treat to commemorate our 26th anniversary definitely made for a special night. Thank you Ray's on the River.

I used to be a butcher and the cut of meat for steak is very important. The Delmonico (ribeye) steak was an excellent cut and cooked perfect. We had some staff in training, so service was not as good as expected for a $200+ Business meal, but I will be back.

Excellent dining experience! My wife and I were there for dinner for our anniversary. The food was just incredible. Way beyond our expectations, which were high to begin with. And our waitress was awesome. She even brought us free desert on her. We’ll be going back in the near future. Thanks Rays for a great dining experience!

We enjoyed the setting, but all 3 members of my party was disappointed with the taste of the food. The shrimp and grits dish wasn't appealing in presentation or taste, and the Sea Bass made my guest sick.

This was my first visit to Rays and I could not be happier. I ordered a filet minion topped with blue cheese and a side of spicy shrimp. The steak melted in my mouth and was full of flavor. The shrimp was also delicious and perfectly cooked and spiced, very nicely presented. We will definetly be back soon.

The ambiance of the restaurant was so relaxing and inviting. The lightening was perfect. The servers and the staff were prompt and ready to make the dining experience pleasurable. I had the Salmon Oscar it was okay, I would have went with something else though. My date had the Lamb Chops with Corn Creme Brûlée and that was very good, I mostly ate from his plate. Overall the experience was nice and I will definitely be returning.

Our waiter's name was Mike. The service was terrible. We had the Cowboy Ribeye and Salmon Oscar. Both were burnt. I couldn't even eat half of the steak. The lobster bisque was cold and tasted like Cambell's Tomato soup out of a can. The person that brought our food to the table knocked the straws from my drink as he placed the food down. I understand that accidents happen, but the least he could have done was replace the straws. No steak knife was provided. Between the delivery of our soup and the rest of our meal was at least 30 minutes or more. I left, at minimal, 3/4 of the steak and the waiter never asked what was wrong or how was the food. In fact, we spent a little over 2 hours here and only saw the waiter every 20 minutes as he took, what looks to us, great care of tables around us. Overall, don't waste your time here. There are far better options in the Greater Atlanta areas!
