The service here was terrific. The bartender Jared was very professional. He gave us great direction. He described meal choices to perfection. I was delighted with this establishment. I will come back again.

Food was good view was very nice. The lobster mac and cheese was not cheesy enough and it seemed kind of wet, the cheese was not creamy enough. I had the salmon and potatoes and that was very good.

Never fails to disappoint. The open shell oysters go very quickly though. You have to sit close to the buffet if you hope to get any.

Wanted to try the award winning brunch and was extremely disappointed. The service was horrendous- we only saw our server to greet us and to leave the check halfway through our meal. The other servers around us had to help with refill our drinks and answer any questions we had. The food was okay- nothing worth $40 a person. We do not plan to dine here for a long time.

I have been to Ray's multiple times before but it seems like things have changed. The menu has changed and it appears that there are fewer items to choose from. They were out of all of our favorites and the server didn't notify us of things running out until we asked about it. I'm sure the busy valentines day weekend didn't help but the restaurant should have prepared better.

Table wasn’t ready till thirty minutes after reservation than service was slow. My fish tasted fishy and my wife ordered a salad and a crab cake appetizer for her main course. The waiter brought them out at the same time he brought everyone else’s salad and then didn’t bring her crab cake at the same time as everyone’s dinner. We’ve been there many times and this is our worst experience.

This was not our first visit but it will definitely be our last dinner there. The service Saturday night was terrible. First of all, reservations don't really mean that you will be seated on time just that you name is on the list. We knew the service tends to be somewhat slow so we prepared to place our entire order once the server appeared. I think our server was new. This is not a cheap restaurant and I expect with the price we were paying we should receive excellent service ... that did not happen. The food tastes good but the lack of service puts a damper on the whole evening.

This was my first visit to Ray's. I'm celebrating LIFE. I chose this restaurant because of the view and my love of water. The food was exquisite, a bonus for me. I will dine here again. LF

I have been to eat at Ray's on the River many times and had the best service experience to date with Khalil as our waiter! It was my Mother's birthday and he took amazing care of us, the food was wonderful and he truly made it a meal to remember!

Definitely impressed with my first visit to Ray's, for which I was celebrating Valentine's Day. The food was amazing, we shared a Porter House for 2 w/ a side of scallops, the Lobster Mac n Cheese and the Sauteed Mushrooms. I must say though, I was most impressed with our server and his knowledge of the wine list and possible pairings with the food, even down to knowledge about the wineries where each wine came from. For a mere 22 years of age, he really knew his stuff, and I think it reflects well on Ray's that all of their staff are so in touch with their menu. Definitely would recommend to anyone trying to treat a special someone to a meal together.
