Best handpicked ice cream in the area offering close to 75 flavors (my guess). It only has one location in Royal Oak, MI. but distributes to local grocery stores. The dairy has old fashion counter seating that serpentines through the dinning area allowing access to...More

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!!

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
