Best ice cream in town! Busy whenever I go and that's pretty much the only downfall. Though they keep the line going as fast as possible so you don't wait long. Try the superman ice cream!

Was recommended to come here from a friend - and thought the ice cream was great! Staff worked quickly, and we loved the ice cream we got.

Ray's is an ice cream store with old fashioned counter and stools. There are always new flavors, often seasonal. Otherwise, choose Blackberry Chip, coffee, English caramel.

Ray's is a great retro ice cream parlor- great cones and, best of all, you still get a FULL half gallon portion in a half gallon (4pints) container (not 3 pints as in store bought ice cream). In the fall you can get Maple Walnut ice Cream, rare around here, but a staple back East where I grew up. Sweet... More

I love the vintage feel of sitting around a counter with bar stools... Oh and the ice cream is the best. There are so many favors!

A fun experience. Wonderful friendly staff. Large portions so I suggest ordering the kid sizes or sharing.

I try to make it Ray’s for Mackinac Island fudge every time I am in the area. So delicious. The servings are humongous – I usually get the kiddie size and it is a hefty portion. Wonderful flavor and a great value.

When we want a special local treat we go to Ray's. The ice cream flavors are wonderful. Love the cinnamon. They do party/wedding catering I believe.

Ray's homemade ice cream is incredible. Rich--no counting calories here. The Detroit Brewhouse coffee is amazing! The cost is a bit much but is worth the trip.

Best ice cream in town - they've been in business for many years - that's a testament in itself. Great original 1950's atmosphere
