Love it all. Great place, great staff, lots of flavors and choices. Warning the sizes are very generous. We order child sizes.

When we want ice cream we drive out of our way to go to Ray's. It is just like the ice cream shops we use to go to when I was first married. Not to be missed!

There's ice cream, then there's I scream. Ray's is the best in town, county, and all of southeast Michigan. Scream it!!

Been going there for more than 30 years. Ice cream does not seem as good this year: fewer nuts, raisins, etc in ice cream. Not as flavorful as previous.

I'm a little disappointed in Ray's. It has been the beacon of light for ice cream for years. The last two times I was there they did not offer Pralines&Cream, a standard, and the banana ice cream did not taste like anything, not even vanilla....More

They make the ice cream right there. Flavors rotate but always a large selection. They let you taste test to your heart's desire and you can request a different flavor for each scoop. Highly recommend the blueberry pie!

We went there on Tuesday afternoon. The shop was very clean and the employees were very attentive. Lots of selections and prices were good.

Anyone in Oakland County can attest: There is no place like Ray's, no history so long and revered, and no ice cream to hold a candle... My personal fave: Moose Tracks! The "baby cone" must have a VERY big "baby" in mind! Yummm!

Rays is one of the best old fashioned ice cream parlors around. They make all their own ice cream in the back and have at least 30 flavors at all times. The servings are huge and well worth the price. They now take credit cards...More
