Recently, I had the privilege to visit Ray’s Killer Creek for Sunday brunch with my boyfriend. I’d only been to the location once before, so I was excited to be invited to their new brunch.
Brunch @ Ray’s at Killer Creek
What I ate: So, I ate a lot. Ray’s Killer Creek offers a brunch buffet and a few kitchen-made brunch entrees, such as the Lobster Chilaquiles, Ray’s Crab Cake Benedict, and Caramelized Banana French Toast.
In addition to the brunch entrees, I sampled a lot: a cinnamon roll on a skillet, roasted vegetables (Brussels sprouts & cauliflower), cheese grits, barbecue brisket, macaroni and cheese, fried chicken tender on a mini waffle, brisket hash, and an assortment of their desserts. They offer mini key lime pies, red velvet cupcakes, macarons, brownies, mini creme brulees, mini banana puddings, and then some.
What I’d order the next time: I would return and probably load up on the roasted vegetables and brisket. I might grab a bowl of fruit instead of dessert if I didn’t have much of a sweet tooth. If I wanted to knock out my craving, I would definitely eat banana pudding.
What all can you order? Their brunch selection is pretty expansive — if I were in the mood for typical continental breakfast fare (fruit, bagels, pastries, oatmeal), then I was in luck. If I wanted a seafood boil, they have that. If I wanted prime rib, it’s my world. If I preferred a loaded veggie plate, my day was made. Seriously, they had a nice spread. My boyfriend said it was akin to some of the luxury buffets he’s experienced in Las Vegas.
Overall food price range: The brunch is $34.95/adult and $17.95/child aged between 5-10.
What I drank: I ordered the Almond Joy cold brew. The cold brew had a good flavor before I stirred the vanilla syrup in. It reminded me of some of the iced coffees I enjoyed in high school. He ordered the French Press coffee.
What I’d drink next time: I’d try one of their brunch cocktails or the Almond Joy cold brew again.
What are other drinks you can order? Alcoholic drinks aren’t served in Alpharetta until after 12:30 pm.
Overall drink price range: If you include all of their beverages, the prices range from $8 to $16 a glass.
Describe the vibe: This is definitely a high end casual restaurant. The brunch aesthetic could work for birthdays, anniversaries, or other celebratory food gatherings. The restaurant is big, but not overpowering. Those in need of private rooms have two areas available for their event. When we arrived around 11 am, it was not that busy. Granted, church and a home game could have contributed to that. It began to get busier around 2 pm but I estimate about 40-50% of tables were still available.
Does the restaurant have any outdoor seating? Yes, there is an outdoor covered patio that overlooks a wooded area.
Area: Ray’s at Killer Creek is located in Alpharetta off of Mansell Rd. It is off the same street as Pappadeaux and Main Event.
Brunch time: Brunch is on Sundays from 10 am until 3 pm.
So, how was brunch at Ray’s at Killer Creek?
I would come back again. I don’t live near Alpharetta, so I probably wouldn’t visit as often as I’d like, but I enjoyed the entire experience. The food was delicious. The service was attentive. I loved it and I hope to return soon!
