Rays never disappoints starting as soon as you pull into the driveway. The guys working valet are very polite, the hostesses greet you with a smile and escorted us to our table quickly. Our waiters were awesome and made great recommendations for dinner, we started with the cold seafood platter which was a big hit with the table. It was very hot outside and the A/C was struggling inside but it wasn’t unbearable. A few favorites we the Salmon Oscar, the Halibut and the Filet. The Trout was the only disappointment, it was paper thin, over cooked and dry. This was the first time I’ve tried the Trout at Rays, it was also the last time and was what made me give 4 stars instead of 5.
The Jazz Trio in the bar were so good that we hung out in the bar for an after dinner drink just to enjoy the music.

I was quite dissatisfied with the Broiled seafood platter. It tasted like school
Food and had no flavor for the price. I definitely won’t be going back so many other restaurants in Atlanta area better price and way more delicious food!

The food was excellent as was the service. The only reason it is not five stars all around was the noise level from the very boisterous table who we talking very inappropriately and loudly. I had read be

The service was top shelf, and the meal was delicious. We had a great view of the river, too, which was a nice bonus. Overall, a great experience and a great value. The gumbo is a must!

Well I planned a proposal and it was the perfect place. I could not have asked for a better setting. The service was exceptional and our waiter even asked if I needed him to help out with anything. Thanks Rays for making our engagement amazing. By the way, SHE SAID YES!!

I love this restaurant. Unfortunately the day I came in for lunch we had a waiter who could care less about the client. I didn't eat but a small portion of my meal. I was not told that this meal was bathed in sauce and pasta. I had to ask for water several times. We were not serviced

Justin is a TERRIFIC server. The atmosphere is one of the best around especially if you one of the lucky ones to get a table with an unobstructed view of the Chattahoochee. The steak and lobster special is my favorite. My dinner partner had the Delmonico with shrimp. YUM!

It seemed the air couldnt keep up with the amount of people in the resturant. The wait staff and hostesses were visibly sweating. The service was poor...never once were we asked if everything was okay and we had to ask for drinks and refills. Ray's at Killer Creek is a million times better!!

The set up of the Sunday buffet makes it difficult to get around and get food. They close many stations well before the 3:00 pm close. But, the food is very good.

First time for brunch and the following items are what I'm going to rate: prime rib, ribs, mini crabcakes good but the boiled shrimp was not good as they were hard to peel and flavorless as were the stone crab legs. Trout passable, grits good. It is still a pretty place and but I think we will stick to lunch or dinner dining.

Everyone was attentive, going above and beyond from the valet parking to the servers. Devon and Jeremy were excellent. Highly recommend the lobster bisque and filet. Best lobster Mac and cheese since Barcelona. The lemon butter cake was perfect.

Perfect location to celebrate our anniversary. Seafood was extraordinary. My only complaint would be that the ladies room needed some attention.
