With a view of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, Ray’s in Ballard is a perfect blend of view and fresh seafood. The place has been around since 1939 and was known for fish and chips and evolved into what it is a today. Find a primo spot at the bar and look at the ocean while sipping on a glass of Chardonnay. We liked the steamed clams and mussels and chatting with the locals. The place was packed, but no wait. Valet available. rays
