The ice cream is made in small batches so they may be out of certain flavors when you visit. The portions, even the singles, are enormous. The sundaes are great also and they use Sander's hot fudge which is a great local topping. In recent years, they have dropped certain flavors, such as pistachio, which is a shame. Apparently the...

their ice cream is home made-hand dipped with ever changing flavors. I love the Almond Joy and the coconut makes a delicious hot fudge Sunday! I take the kids at least once during the summer and it become dinner. The portions are BIG.

The ice cream is rich, creamy and delicious. A bit pricey but worth it. Their specialty items are wonderful for entertaining.

Too expensive and young staffers can be rude. Wasn't worth the trip. Will never go back. What a shame, used to be a great place years ago !

Ray's Ice Cream is a great place to stop for a cone, cup, or even their sundaes and banana splits! The banana split is enough for 3 or 4 people and it's fun to sit at the counter and enjoy your dessert. The prices are a bit high but they do give you a giant scoop - even the kiddie... More

Here’s the “SCOOP” on Ray’s Ice Cream: It is delicious and plentiful, and the prices seem fair also. We stopped “for a cone” after going to a few local sales and we were impressed by 1. the service, 2. the great creamy taste, and 3. the large portions. I ordered a double dip (in a cup) and received an extra... More

The ice cream is made right on the premises with good butter fat content! I have been going there for over 50 yrs when Ray Stevens first started it! Handed down from father to sons and then grand children! Not the cheapest icecream but it is real ice cream and not a custard! You get what you pay for!

Taste, texture, variety, size, innovative, all AWESOME! Fantastic quality and taste. Try my favorite Rum-Raisin. Wow each raisin is full of rum and bursts with a wonderful rum finish in your mouth.

Why do I say this? The variety of flavours, the size of the servings, the cost of the serving, the quality and flavour of the ice cream, the atmosphere and the service. On our road trips we make a point of going to the recommended ice cream shops. It has been Jaxson's near Fort Lauderdale, Gifford's in Maine, Cow's in... More
