    I am wondering if the Cafe will be having a buffet for Christmas Eve and Christmas? Do you have a price and a menu available anytime soon? I know you guys are a popular spot for the holidays but would like to make sure the menu will be something my children will eat before making reservations.

      Hi Marcus – We are open for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day but are not offering our buffet on Christmas Day this year to allow our team to spend more time with their families. We will have our regular children’s menus available both days in the Boathouse and Cafe. You can view more details here as well: http://www.rays.com/celebrate-christmas-dec-24-25/ We hope you will join us!!

    Why won’t you tell us what you are serving in the dining room or at the Cafe and what the Cafe cost is. We love the buffet in years past but are interested in knowing a bit more about what’s planned this year.

      Hi Jef – we are so sorry to disappoint you with no buffet offering this year! We have decided to not offer a Cafe buffet on Christmas Day this year to allow our employees more time with their families on both Christmas Eve and Day. We hope you will still join us in the Cafe and try our Christmas specials including Prime Rib of Beef, Filet & King Crab Leg or King Crab Cioppino, plus our menu of guest favorites. Let us know if we can help make you a reservation. Thank you!
