Ray’s Boathouse

Seafood in Ballard & Discovery Park

Out in western Ballard near the Shilshole Bay Marina, Ray’s is all about placid Olympic Peninsula views, nautical decor and an exhaustive fresh-fish menu. It offers tourists everything they imagine when they think about a nice dinner out in Seattle.

Reservations are required and it isn't cheap, but if you can’t get in for dinner, at least come for a drink on the sundeck.
