We had steamed lobster and stuffed haddock , the lobster was sweet and delicious and the fish was fresh and there was a very generous portion of it . Courtney our server was very nice and efficient with a full house downstairs .

A fantastic, 90 degree day in April is ultra rare in New England. Perfect for a motorcycle ride. Came upon Ray's. The place was jam-packed. Parking lot full. Figured it must be terrific. An hour plus wait for a table, no problem, I get that....More

Great food!!! Starting with the seafood chowder, which is made fresh to order. Huge scallops, shrimp, and fish portions filling the bowl, which makes it a meal in itself. The fish & chips was golden brown, fresh, flaky and delicious! The scallops, the onion rings...More

We always try to stop here on our way, when we take our mini getaways to Maine. No frills, fresh delicious food at a reasonable price. Very friendly staff. Money well spent. We are returning fans.
