Great place for fried seafood or cook yourself. Convenient location and good hours. They sometimes have lobster specials.

I love Ray's Seafood, but sadly I can't eat there anymore, somehow my body rejects any meat and fat. But the fish there is so good, it is really fresh and they fry it just right. The sides are good too. I love their creemees...More

Stopped by yesterday and we thought we were in Maine. This is a no-pretense, order at the counter, Maine styled seafood "joint." As such, it hits all the high notes. Impeccably fresh fish, clean atmosphere and a smiling, helpful staff. Cannot wait to return...

Visited Ray's recently, first time in a couple years. I should have known better than to visit on a Friday night. The die-hard Friday no-meat crowd was out in force. Because there were no tables open, we ordered our food for take out. They estimated...More

I have been to Ray's Seafood Market many times, to both purchase seafood as well as eat in the dining area. I find it to be the best there is in Vermont!

Scallops and fish over-breaded. Didn't seem super fresh. Fries seemed reheated. Service was kind of mess - multiple staff people restocking a just-off-the-floor cabinet with plates, cups, etc. I heard an "order up" call and saw a basket sitting waiting. Three different staff people wandered...More

The food was pretty okay. I had fried haddock and my boyfriend had fried catfish. The catfish was delicious but the haddock didn’t really taste like anything. There’s not many seafood places in Vermont, so this place would be good for not many other places.
