My Favorite Seafood/Steak Meal with a Waterfront View!

I love going to Rays during lunch hours for two reasons: 1. The prices are affordable when compared to their dinner menu... 2. The staff is extremely friendly and the view is AMAZING! My favorite lunch dish at this particular place is the Steak Oscar! Try ordering this exact same dish at any other 3-5 star restaurant and you will be paying double! It is served with mashed potatoes, spring vegetable - either broc... view more

Ray's Boat House- The One TO Miss

Rays boat House did not serve a fine dinner. The cod was not cut right and it was full of bones. The Manila Clams were cracked, leaving pieces of shells in the dish. The entree was served during the salad and the coffee was cold. THe server did not know anything about the dishes. She did not know what spices were used, just that they were fresh. \r \r I have found more helpful servers and better dinners for half ot... view more

Great Seafood

This is a great place to take friends or family from out of town. Not only is the seafood excellent they have an incredible wine list. The service is always great and so is the atmosphere.

Spirits and sunsets

Every so often the weather gods smile on Seattle and Seattleites are fronted with the question of where to enjoy a drink or a meal and still enjoy the sun. In comes Ray's Boathouse and Cafe. Ray's is tucked away on the waterfront near Golden Gardens in Ballard and their outdoor deck is fantastic. There are two floors at Ray's and the Cafe and outdoor seating are upstairs. The lower level is enclosed but has lov... view more

Best Outdoor Seating Restaurant in Seattle

In Ballard, within walking distance of Golden Gardens, you will find the best oudoor restaurant deck in Seattle at Rays. Beautiful, great views of the boats coming into the Ballard locks and various wildlife. Sunshine on the deck in the right weather. This is one of the most romantic places to eat in Seattle because of the outdoor dining and views.\r \r The seafood is special. Fantastic service, every time. Th... view more

Excellent Service and Food

I have been coming here for years and I have always loved what was on the menu as well as the location and the service. However the last time I visited Ray's was exceptional. The service was great throughout the night and when my keys were locked in my car by the valet (downside of the night) the bar tenders were super friendly and I got drinks and dessert on the house. I highly recommend the bartender Ben K, he was ... view more

Jeez, where's the service?

Sunday 5 PM at Ray's was a drag. The bartender's were interested in turnover only and had quiite the 'tude.\r Not only was ther bar service as low as it can get, the plating was haphazard; our chese/fruit platter arrived with SLIVERS of cheese and grapes rolling around on the plate, until they rolled onto the counter . Appetizing...\r Then the bartender commented that it was happy hour and that for $32 he could se... view more

great view, sub par food

My wife and I have gone to Ray's for years. We tend to sit up in the Cafe for the view and the more relaxed atmosphere. The people are nice, view is great, but the food is really boring. The menu hasn't changed much at all over the past 5 years and the quality of the food isn't that great. \r \r Hey Ray... update the menu to compete with the other great restaurants around Seattle, eh? It's not 1920 and there's... view more

Always supurb

By far my favorite - and felt the need to give credit. Everyone you meet at Ray's is friendly and first class.\r \r I try different items and am NEVER disappointed! Ask the server to have the chef put together his reccommandation for the night- you'll be amazed!\r
