The respected steak and seafood joint is still regularly packed 30+ years after opening on the bank of the Chattahoochee River. Serving everything from gumbo to oysters, lobster rolls, and 21-day wet-aged, hand-cut Delmonico ribeye steaks, Ray’s is still a favorite among those who appreciate consistency, fanciness, and an impeccable waterside view (so, uh, everyone?).
Of the three Ray's locations—the others being in Downtown (i.e. Ray’s in the City) and in Alpharetta (i.e. Ray's at Killer Creek)—Ray’s on the River offers the best ambiance. There are plenty of views of the Chattahoochee from inside the restaurant, there’s plenty of outdoor seating, too. Must-order dishes on the menu include the jumbo lump crab cake, the steakhouse wedge, and the honey-glazed salmon. If you're feeling carnivorous there are also plenty of cuts of steak to choose from, too.
