Ray’s on the River always does an excellent job. We rented the new grand pavilion for our rehearsal dinner on June 22, 2018. The space is absolutely beautiful and very spacious. It holds up to 180 guests. We opted for the open bar which our guests appreciated and was well worth it, the cocktails were wonderful. As for dinner, we liked that there are multiple menu options which are available for every price range. We decided to go with the pre selected dinner menu #2. My favorite is the filet Oscar it’s sooo good. All of our guests enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. They even customized the menues by putting our names on it and the date. Our guests enjoyed being able to walk by the river after dinner. The staff was very professional and catering to every guests needs. Each staff member made it a goal to stop by and say congrats to me and my husband. They were all very nice and friendly. Corinne the event coordinator was easy to get in contact with and helped with the seating chart and even printed name tags! I appreciate Ray’s on the river for making my rehearsal dinner one to remember! Thank you so much!Sent on 07/19/2018

We had an amazing rehearsal dinner at Ray's!!! It began with a downpour/thunderstorm as we met our floral designer that afternoon and I was sure it would be a disaster. However, the staff did EVERYTHING they possibly could to help us deal with the rain and water pouring in the doorways, helping mop up and move things! Bonnie and Corinne were fantastic and stayed close by to make sure it all worked out. By "showtime" it was BEAUTIFUL, food was AMAZING and all were happy! The setting is magical!Sent on 06/26/2018
