Large selection of fresh fish, perfectly prepared in an idyllic setting - is the case with Ray's. From the valet parking, to the professional wait staff, you will get that extra special care you expect. The fresh Halibut was pricey but over the top good!

Great location on the water, with good views. 10 minute Uber ride from downtown. Ate in upstairs grill. Had smoked salmon tacos. Very tasty. If you want to eat on outdoor deck, bring your sunglasses.
