Amazing views and mediocre food for a lot of money. We were told to go here for the freshest sea food. The fish was overcooked and expensive. I make better Salmon at home. Maybe it was an off night. The view was stupendous.

We first came in 2001 and the last time we were here was 2006 and loved it then so we're so happy to find it still here. The crab cakes are so memorable that we've spoken of them often over the years. The fish and chips are the best we've had in Alaska. Love the view too!

Rays has a very diversified menu. We found it to be a little less pricey than Chinooks and excellent food! We dined here twice. If you like fresh seafood, it's excellent here!

Great atmosphere and wonderful food. My family had the NY Strip steak and the pasta with seafood and red sauce. All was delicious. The waitress, Rainy was very nice and provided great service. We had a fantastic view of the harbor from our table. They are very busy, so get there either early or plan for a wait.

Absolutely delicious food with a wait staff that is constantly at your beck and call. The portions were huge. It was a bit pricey, but definitely worth it.

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.
