Not only is this a Royal Oak treasure but as a family owned, multi generation operated local business... This is the best Ice Cream you will ever have the opportunity to taste! I love this place and the Stevens family as well.

Place is always packed winter or summer. The ice cream is made fresh there and is beyond good. The ice cream soda is to die for and the banana split take 3 people to eat it!!! Everyone loves it and it looks like a old soda jerk from the old days. Love this place!!

I have eaten her many times in the last 20/30 years. Never disappointed. Most of the ice cream is good to very good. This is not a premium priced shop, so there is better ice cream, for a higher price elsewhere. However I have been happy with each of my purchases. The last one being a yummy marshmallow sundae with... More

Portions are very large, including the small cone, it's a double decker. Ice cream is always fresh and abundant with a large selection of flavors. You can also get sundaes, etc., but the plain ice cream is fantastic.

I remember going to Ray's Ice Cream as a kid. (Im in my mid 30's now) The single scoop is still enough for two people! My favorite is Chocolate Peanut Butter...you don't find this flavor too many other places, at least not to this caliber of delicious. Priced reasonably for good quality ice cream, I think I paid 4.69 for... More

Clarks Ice Cream in Berkley is better. Ice cream is fresher and primarily what they deal with. Not a soda and float place like Ray's. Not overpriced either.

Nothing bettered when you have that craving for ice cream than to make a visit to this Royal Oak institution that serves up a humdinger of an ice cream cone with a few dozen favors or a monster sundae with all the variations of toppings you can pile on. You cannot Just make one trip. With the spring and summer... More
