Good varied menu, good food, good beer, good decor, good views. Altogether a very good experience. Staff efficient and very friendly, our waitress (cant recall her name, but she was from Sacramento) was particularly good. Thoroughly recommended.

The food and service was outstanding. We had a great table and wonderful waterfront view with mountains in the background. Service was good and our server made some good recommendations. A great place to eat when you are in Seward. Both the salmon and halibut are outstanding !

Ray's had phenomenal views of the water. Our waiter was great. Prices were what I'd expect for a fine dining restaurant, maybe just a bit high. I enjoyed King Crab Legs which was a huge treat. Most enjoyed their food, but one in our group wasn't too impressed with his meal.

A very nice restaurant (on the waterfront) with prices competitive w/ lesser quality establishments in the area. Great wait staff and very good food. Located nearby the docks & free 2-hour parking. I'd go back.

Great location right on the harbour. The bar has atmosphere, the locals hang out here, the food and drinks are both very good.

We had a great experience at Rays. We chose it for the view of mountains behind the harbor. We were pleasantly surprised by good food as well.

The salmon and crab was outstanding. The service was A+++ and friend. The menu had some thing for everyone tastes even for non-sea food lovers. Great Bar and all over looking the harbor. Beautiful Scene !

Beautiful view of the harbor. I ordered a hamburger and it had a very weird taste, clam chowder was super salty. My daughter did enjoy the fish tacos though.

We went here after our boat cruise. We sat right near one of the windows and got a great view of the harbor. We both ordered the salmon. It was quite delicious. Would highly recommend.
