Ray's Boathouse, Café and Catering
6049 Seaview Ave NW    Seattle    206-789-3770

Different happy hours in the Café and Boathouse--pick the right one for the moment! Café (bar only 21+) Sunday-Saturday 4-6 p.m. and 9-10 p.m. On Tuesdays, 4-6 p.m. happy hour is available in entire Café, including on the deck. Drink specials as well as tiered pricing on food items. In the Boathouse, happy hour takes place Sunday-Friday 4:30-6 p.m. and Saturday 4-6 p.m. Wine and cocktail specials, a progressive oyster happy hour (least expensive at opening, increasing each half hour) and a number of enticing food items at great prices.

Beyond Happy Hour: Ray's is a Seattle icon and has been for 40 years. Now they've remodeled and rebranded to become the icon for the next 40 years. The view never changes, but now there are bars on both levels taking full advantage. Take a look at the extensive wine list (we suggest doing more than just looking). They take their water location seriously and the menu reflects that connection. Get reacquainted!

Beyond Happy Hour: The view can't be beat, rain or shine, over the water toward downtown Seattle and enjoy fresh seafood and steaks. Flexible banquet facilities.

Beyond Happy Hour: Contemporary Northwest is the theme and it holds true for the environment (cherry wood, gray/silver/black color scheme), the wine list (70-75% Washington) and the food. There's something for everyone here--chicken, tempura, seafood, pork, foie gras, local produce, beef, duck. All with that Northwest flair. They put fresh local products on the menu as they arrive, expect to see something a little different on each visit.

Beyond Happy Hour: This comfortable spot located at The Heathman Hotel offers much to like.

If you're looking for a place to make your front porch hang out, Trellis has great outdoor seating, heat lamps for cooler moments and greenery to calm you.

Beyond Happy Hour: All the Salty's restaurants are known for their consistently good food, but all have a slightly different feel. Salty's at Redondo Beach is much more "beachy" as it's built out over the water and sits along the promenade on the Redondo Beach waterfront. Outdoor deck dining (ODD) is primo here whether you're having lunch or watching the sun set behind the Olympics.
