“Fairlawn Location Is Pretty Good”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We went to the new Ray's Place in Fairlawn, by Summit Mall. The burgers were juicy and the food came out pretty quick. The Fairlawn location is more roomy than the Kent location. Would go back.

“Ray's”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

It was a busy Friday night, and my husband and I went to Ray's after finding a good review of the restaurant online from Chef Michael Symon. We were in town for the adult easter egg scramble in Kent at the local park. Anyways, we went because my husband wanted to try the mo-fo burger which turned out to be disappointing. The bun was soggy, and the bacon tasted strange (and we know bacon!) We had the parmesan calamari which was very flavorful and delicious. The hot wings were the best, however our fries were soggy, brought out by the kitchen staff quickly without much thought and plopped them on our table. They were disgusting. How could they even let that leave their kitchen? Disappointing that a restaurant would even mess up on fries. Come on, get it together Ray's! A plus- the waitress was kind, and very attentive & hostess, friendly.

“Great Local Place!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Service was amazing as was the food! Great burgers, wings and fries - you won't be disappointed. Decent beer selection and lots of tv's to watch a game. The town of Kent is great to take a walk around also, check out the area by the railroad tracks and water.

“Ray's is always a good time”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We''ve lived here for 25+ years and Ray's Place is always reliable. It's fun and steeped in tradion with very good casual food and a ton of different beers on tap. It can get a little hectic on weekends when Kent State is in session, but still always a good time. We love it.
