  • Rating: 5.0 out of 5"Jul 17, 2014 · by Kate C. from YelpI have always liked Ray's for a long time but my love for it grew when I brought my then boyfriend now husband to get his fingers dirty and have a seafood feast with me. We always get 2 lbs of shrimps, ultimate power medium with sauce on the side, rice and maybe the calamari or catfish basket with cajun fries. Oh so good, and guess what? We actually prefer the thicker sauce here than BC Full review
  • Rating: 1.0 out of 5"Jul 17, 2014 · by Kay V. from YelpFood poisoning !It must have been the oysters. They had a weird consistency. I also had a bag but that was good. Although now me and my husband are so sick and have terrible stomach pains. This is the second time the oysters were questionable. Full review

You might stone me for saying this, but I think Ray's Crab Shack might be better than both!Let me be completely transparent. We went to Ray's with little to no expectations. That's probably why I left so satisfied. Another reason is how much the other two make me feel oily and … Full review
  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jul 12, 2014 · by Jenna T. from YelpI came here for dinner on a Friday night. Because there was only two of us,we got seated pretty quickly. If you have a big party,you'll definitely have to wait. Service is friendly, efficient,and fast. It seemed like only 5 minutes after we ordered that our food came! We ordered 1 lb of clams ultimate power - mild,2 lbs of … Full review
  • Rating: 1.0 out of 5"Jul 12, 2014 · by Jennifer Y. from YelpI ordered take out last night and the shrimp was not fresh. The shrimp was not firmed and soggy. It was gross, cant believe I wasted my money. Not going back!!! Full review
  • Rating: 3.0 out of 5"Jul 08, 2014 · by Charlene C. from YelpThe shrimp was really good and I had a promising time there. Although, it is really boring when you walk in and get seated. The servers are really boring and not upbeat, it's like they don't want to be there. Full review
  • Rating: 3.0 out of 5"Jul 07, 2014 · by Janie X. from YelpThe food here is ok. We ordered 1lb of shrimp and clam with all seasonings. I agree with the other reviewers that they use garlic power not fresh garlic. I could barely find any chopped garlic in the bag. Shrimps were large and very fresh though. If you are used to the the mild level of spiciness at boiling crab, I … Full review

  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jun 27, 2014 · by Amanda C. from YelpI think this is one of the best places for Cajun shrimp in my area (after boiling crab). I normally get 1 lb of ultimate power shrimp with head, medium spiciness. I love the taste but I prefer a more pastey consistency for the sauce. Depending on the day, it can go from straight up oil to the paste i prefer. Thats why i give it 4 stars. Customer service is an A+ though Full review
  • Rating: 3.0 out of 5"Jun 26, 2014 · by Maggie X. from YelpFirst and foremost, I adore the fact that Ray's serves black-lipped mussels instead of the bigger, meatier green-lipped ones. The black mussels are much juicier, albeit smaller, and have a cleaner seafood flavor. This is the only pound-seafood restaurant I've found that serves black-lipped mussels, and I was super … Full review
