I love RAY'S! Always have! The food is always great. Best chowda eva! Always cooked perfectly! Laid back and casual. Fair prices. If you want to wear a tux and pay 10 times as much, I'm sure you can have some options that you wont find here. If you want the BEST seafood in the area, this is where you... More

Excellent service. We... More

Great Clam Chowder, Twin Lobster Dinners, local beer and more. Lot's of people eating the fried seafood dinners so they must be good too. Great waitress & service.

I love their Haddock. It's absolutely superb - lightly coated and always done right. Our friends from Newburyport take us up and down the coast for the views, but if I can, I have them stop for lunch AND dinner at Ray's. They seldom hesitate.

I am a Finger Lakes (NY) resident, enjoying a visit with my sister who had recently moved to Amesbury, MA. She suggested a drive along the NH seacoast. We enjoyed the breathtaking scenery along Rye Beach, and then stopped for a seafood lunch at Ray's on Ocean Blvd. What a meal! Both of us had generous bowls of rich fish... More

Came here a few years ago and was disappointed. Decided to try again. Worst seafood food ever. Just no. Over cooked lobster. Horrible mushy clams and service, well...... What service. Never again.

Went to Ray's after a whate watching trip. Service an lobsters were great. The only thing that surprised us was the paper plates and bowls used to serve lobster and chowder.
