Ray's Shanty Restaurant is owned and operated by Ray and Laura Twiford.

Captain Ray is a lifelong waterman and was the first person on the shore to sell fresh shrimp and local seafood at his roadside stands back in 1981 where his catch phrase was "Get Fresh With Me, You'll Love it!". He and his wife Laura then opened Ray's Shanty Restaurant in 1986 where they quickly became famous for the best shrimp and seafood around.
