Ray’s Café

Located upstairs on the top deck of Ray’s, our casual waterfront restaurant and bar show off the beautiful splendor of Seattle with sweeping views of Puget Sound and the Olympics. Try our popular Ballard Happy Hour every day and soak in the sunset on the Seattle waterfront!

Ray’s Café will warm your soul with seasonal fresh takes on classic dishes, from our signature clam chowder to in-house smoked salmon, piping hot steamers and small plate wonders. Ray’s waterfront bar offers casual dining and relaxation in the fresh sea air. We have 20 microbrews on tap, extensive wines and our own specialty hand-crafted cocktail list. Ray’s Café offers succulent seafood with a side of warm hospitality for lunch and dinner and there’s no place like Ray’s Café bar for the best happy hour in Ballard every day… with a backdrop of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains.

Did we mention our outdoor deck? It’s the answer to every Seattleite’s dream after a long, dark winter. Open seasonally, the Ray’s Café waterfront deck is the perfect place to soak up the splendor of the Pacific Northwest. Just bring your sunnies and let us take care of the rest! Ray’s Café is perfectly suited for fun and celebration throughout the year. Reservations are accepted and recommended, walk-ins are welcome. Parking is a cinch in our free private lot, along with complimentary valet parking during our busiest times.
