Lots of great beer choices here! All served very cold and nice bartenders took care of us. Food...wings were quite good but the blue cheese served with it was watery and tasteless. The pizza was burned on the bottom and was served cold. Server offered to put it back in the oven but it was very burned already. Atmosphere become... More

Ray J's was recommended by another person staying in our hotel. We were excited about our first visit to Ray J's. Ordered chicken wings as an appetizer while we looked over the menu. The wings were very good. It was hard to choose as there were so many choices that looked good to us. My husband had the pizza and... More

Six of us. Poor service. Below average on all food (wings, hot turkey, hot roast beef, chicken sandwiches). Orders sat in window for about 10 minutes. App and meals arrived at the same time though ordered separately 10-15 min apart. Just crappy all the way around!

I fell in love with this place the moment I walked in. It's like a neighborhood bar and grill. So friendly and fun, good food and friendly service! We stayed at a hotel close by, so we had a chance to eat here a few times. Some of the portions are huge!

It seems a shame to go to Ray J's and not to have chicken wings, but sometimes you need a change, right? And while I find the ambiance there very friendly and pleasant, this time I just wanted to sit in my own easy chair and binge watch Murdock's Mysteries. So I called ahead and ordered a Reuben to go.... More

Stopped by for a mid afternoon lunch. Split the Reuben and ordered waffle fries. This was by far one of the best Reuben's I've ever had. The meat was high quality and delicious.

Plenty of TV everywhere but food average and service an after thought. Happy hour is slightly above average.
