Ray's Cafe is the perfect vantage point for savoring our postcard view of the Puget Sound with a micro brew and a bowl of clams. With a casual and lively atmosphere, the Cafe offers a wide array of menu options featuring world-class seafood dishes. Open for lunch and dinner everyday, the Cafe is the perfect place to kick back and relax!
Our outdoor deck is the place to be on a sunny summer day. The new addition of our heated, covered patio space makes outdoor dining comfortable on even the grayest of Seattle days. If the weather starts to turn, cozy up near one of our two stone fireplaces and you'll soon forget about the chilly weather outside.

Ray’s is a special place to dine because the views across the Puget Sound are always stunning. The food is very good but not amazing. We had excellent service and will come back often to enjoy the views and armosphrere

We spent Valentine’s Day here, and decided the bar was more our scene. We ate at Rays Cafe (upstairs) which is a little more casual than the downstairs and more fun in my opinion! Bartender was attentive and quick to get our food and drinks. The steak was a little tough but really enjoyed the oyster special and the king crab legs. Chocolate Genache was terrible but that’s just me. :)

As always the service and food was wonderful at Ray's Boathouse Cafe. Wish it had been a clearer day, but even then the view of Puget Sound in the rain is pretty.

Everything thing was excellent, except for the server who appeared to be overwhelmed. He did not exhibit a culture of service. Simple request to take a picture of my spouse and I was not honored. He appeared rushed and preoccupied. I have frequented Rays Boathouse since the late seventies; I have always felt that it is a welcoming venue. But on 2/13/18, that was not the case. Maybe the waiter just had a bad day.

Excellent lunch at Ray's Cafe. The mixed greens salad with apples was excellent. I loved the abundant apple chunks instead of the wafer-thin slices of apples that used to be on this salad. Good update, Ray's. The entire Ray's team made this an excellent experience and I highly recommend this gem.

Food was deliciois and served quickly. Wouldn't recommend the mini salmon burgers, bunds weren't soft, fish tasted overcooked. Had made reservation, but were accommodated at a table that wasn't all set for us. Had to ask few times and remind the waiter to bring the missing silverware set and plate. Great view of the water, cosy atmosphere.

Disappointed in our seating. We reserved several days in advance, but were seated as far from the windows as possible ( by the rear fireplace). It was my wife’s birthday, so the placement was disappointing

A great neighborhood restaurant and a great place for Seattle visitors. The view from the outside seating and from the window seating is beautiful, the drinks very good, the service very attentive an accommodating to special requests and the food, especially the Thai seasoned mussels exceptional. The happy hour now covers the total restaurant and is attractively priced with very nice options.

Service and food were very good. We loved the tacos and salmon, everything tastes very fresh. The view is wonderful, even on a cloudy day we loved watching boats come an do as we had lunch.
