The best ice cream place in the area

Wide range of flavors. Popular place for ice cream. They have a small store with convenience food items but it's the ice cream that draws you to this place.

There is no better ice cream in the area and Gray's is probably one of the best or the best in the state of RI. This is a must-stop if you're in the Tiverton/Little Compton area!!

This is truly THE best ice cream! I don't typically eat ice cream or indulge in milkshakes but every time I'm in Little Compton, I have to stop by Grays for a coffee cabinet. They have a wonderful variety of homemade flavors. The staff is friendly, the product is fantastic and it's not over priced. This is a must have... More

This famous Rhode Island institution serves the best ice cream anywhere. My family has been coming here for decades, and now that I no longer live in Rhode Island, I make it a point to stop here on my rare trips North from Tennessee. This is a great place to take the kids, and a great place for a date.

Oh what would summer be without a stop at Gray's Tiverton Four Corners Rt 77 & Rt 179 . You can stroll and browse at the artist shops and treat yourself to a cone ,waffle, regular or my favorite sugar. About $4 for a heap of heaven or $6.50 for a sundae. Orange pineapple, rum raisin, black raspberry, coffee oreo,... More

The only ice cream to get here is coffee. It is what they are famous for. Creamy with rich coffee flavor. Wasn't crowded at 3:30 on July 3.

Gray's Ice Cream wins the best ice cream in Rhode Island award year after year. So, I suppose, this makes it worthy of patronage. During the summertime the parking lot is filled with out-of-staters who seem willing to stand in long lines and pay five bucks for a small cone. I usually have the ginger ice cream. It's to die...

The day-glo hue raised an immediate flag. The absence of ANY actual pistachios was strike two. The artificial taste was Game Over... The chocolate and rum raisin yogurt were similarly poor - no evidence of natural, homemade favors.., Generic supermarket quality... The location is good, situated at the Four a Corners section of Tiverton. Plenty of parking...

MEMO to the owners of Gray's Ice Cream: Please train new employees before you leave them alone at the ordering window, it took 20 minutes for my wife and I to order a small cone and a strawberry milk shake, and we were the only customers in line! 6 people came after us and all left when they realized the...
