Ray’s is a waterfront-dining institution; the downstairs has an unimpeachably upscale (if standard-issue) atmosphere, the upstairs has a less-expensive cafe menu, and they both have a mind-boggling view. As for the food, it varies more than it should. But if your out-of-town visitors demand seafood with such a view (and hopefully are paying), Ray’s is the place.
