Ray’s Lounge & Catering

Location: 2070 Clinton Street Buffalo, NY

Phone:716 824 3227

Price: $  12.99

Batter fried, breaded or broiled with choice of
potato, coleslaw, macaroni salad, & Potato Salad  Rye Bread

Ambiance: This is a blast from the past.  The restaurant is in a older building in Kasiertown in South Buffalo.  It must also be used as a banquet hall.  On Fridays they have a Seafood buffet and their Friday Fish Fry.  We had the Fish Fry, but did look at the buffet.  We arrived after 7 and there were only a few people in the restaurant.  They do stop serving at 8pm  The restaurant had hard wood floors that I think doubled as a dance floor.  It was clean and family run.

Service: The service was prompt and friendly.

Food: The fish was just ok.  It was not particularly crispy.  The salads were very good and tasted as though they were home made.  We liked the traditional thicker sliced rye bread.  Our soda's were flat and not good.  We did ask the waitress about this and she told us they were having trouble with their machine.  I switched to water.  I was disappointed that she did not say something and just served them to us without any warning since they knew they had a problem.

Rating: 2  fins

Recommendation: I would  not recommend this fish fry to others and I  probably would return again.

Ice House – East Aurora, NY

Location: Elm Street, East Aurora, NY  14052

Price: $  12.00

Ambiance: Bar area near the front door packed with regulars,  main dining area was a bit old.  Old fashion Ice tongs on the wall were a nice touch.

Service: Friendly

Food: Battered fish was average quality, somewhat greasy. Fries were crisp, hot & good. The “all you can eat” salad bar consisted of the normal side salads served with most Buffalo fish fries. Coleslaw, Macaroni Salad, and Potato Salad. They also had hot German Potato Salad, and a Soup of the Day, which was not very good.
