The sign out front had some nice landscaping, in keeping with the general quality of Ray's.

First review
Ray’s on the River is an upscale steak and seafood restaurant located on the Chattahoochee River and which opened in 1984. Ray’s on the River is one of three Ray’s restaurants in the Atlanta area. The other two are Ray’s on the Creek in Alpharetta and Ray’s in the City near downtown. This review is of the brunch service at Ray’s on the River which is available on Sundays from 10:00am-3:00pm.

Ray’s is a destination restaurant and is the type of place you would be unlikely to find by driving by. The restaurant is divided into distinct dining rooms which offers more privacy, but not all of the rooms have river views. The downstairs room had a good view and can be requested when making a reservation. Note that reservations are strongly recommended here. Limited patio seating is available and is coveted in nice weather. There is a business casual dress policy.

Arriving without a reservation worked OK because it was at 10:00am on the dot, and immediate seating was available. The hostess was welcoming and pleasant, and the server was attentive but not unduly so. Noise levels were reasonable, but it also was early. With so much food to choose from, your stomach will run out of room before your mind runs out of possibilities. Options included a variety of seafood, a large salad and fruit section, made to order omelets and waffles, and an extensive selection of desserts made in-house. Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s were available after 12:30 for an extra $5 per drink. A made to order vegetable omelet started the meal off on a tasty note. Potatoes and rice were enjoyable as side dishes. A made to order waffle with strawberry sauce also delivered taste wise, and it was temping to order another delicious waffle, but the desserts beckoned. The cookies and cakes here were just too tempting not to indulge a few servings. Ray’s was a great choice for a memorable brunch in a nice setting. It also would work well as a date venue, albeit an expensive one at $32.95 per person.
