Stopped for lunch and enjoyed a fabulous fish chowder and a halibut special. Service was good and fast. Pleasant atmosphere with great views of the area. Sea Otters even swam up to the windows. Great afternoon experience!

Ray's has a lovely view of the harbor with all the fishing and tour boats as well as the mountains. Service was good and food was very fresh. Halibut was well portioned and while the steak was a little overlooked, it had great flavor.
