It can be 18 below zero (kinda like it's been around here lately) and Ray's Ice Cream will still sound good and taste good. Amazing flavors, homemade, generous portions. High end creamery that people visit from all around the state. The cinnamon ice cream is a must have at Christmas.

Awesome products served up by clumsy high school kids. Just like you remember from when you were a kid. Cool place to hang out too. Excellent.

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
