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

Independent ice cream parlor that is family run and serves homemade ice cream. People were lined out the door when we went here. One thing that will strike you is the amount of ice cream you get. I ordered a double scoop since I wanted to try two different flavors of ice cream, and I got a large cup that... More

After a round of miniature golf on a hot day , there was nothing more refreshing than a visit to a nice cream parlor! Ray's is a Detroit area landmark. Upon entering the visitor is a tempted with over 20 wonderful, homemade ice cream flavors. The young staff is bubbly and very helpful and the parlor is reminiscent of a... More

Ray's Ice Cream is one of my most favorite places for ice cream anywhere, anytime. It's a step back in time, in a way. Delicious locally made ice cream, a great variety of flavors, generous portions and fun, friendly service. If you're anywhere near, don't miss it. Actually, make a trip for it if you can. It's like a little... More

For more than 30 years I have been enjoying Ray's Ice Cream and its many delicious and creative flavors of ice cream. Don't be discouraged by the occasionally long lines--you know the end result will be worth waiting for. This is a high-quality product that has not been compromised by rising costs! Truly one of the great local business gems.

They serve many flavors and high quality ice creams. And they've been doing it for many years. There are people in the Detroit area who graduated in the 60's, 70's, etc, who've been going there for many years, and they keep going back. The only thing one can say is that Ray has been doing something right. And, yes, and,... More

This ice cream is a great value for the money, and the best I have ever ordered in an ice cream parlor. So creamy, and hand packed. We were staying in Madison Heights, and drove over to Ray's in Royal Oak to taste the ice cream that everyone was telling us "it is worth the drive" - we were not... More

Known throughout metro Detroit as the best ice cream in the area - and it definitely lives up to that title! Great for the family - the old-fashioned counter is especially a hit, and there is plenty of outdoor seating as well. Service is great, and the atmosphere is fun and friendly.
