“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

My annual Tiverton visit for lunch with out of state friends now includes a visit to Gray's Ice Cream. I'm a big ice cream fan usually having Cookies and Cream. This was the best Cookie and Cream I ever had. My two friends felt the same about the flavors they had. We passed up a dessert at a beautiful waterfront restaurant for the trip to Gray's. It was so worth it!

“Ice cream disappointment.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Have been coming to this well known ice cream stand for years, but very disappointed on this recent trip. Ordered cone of well known chocolate chip & honestly not impressed. Flavor was bland. For the cost of a small cone, I could have purchased a quart of the store brand with more flavor. Not quite sure what was going on - not busy & help not rushed. Going to think twice about returning.

“Mmmmmm....good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

I go to gray's for ice cream at least weekly even in the winter. My two favorites are coffee yogurt and ginger ice cream.. Very rustic setting, lots of shops and areas for biking and hiking. The service is always pleasant. It feels good to be able to support a small business, truly American made in the USA!

“Homemade local ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Ice cream is great. Only complaint in no place for outdoor seating. 2 small benches off to side. Lots of people eating against their car or in car but for those with small kids that's tough. Overall great ice cream though. We've been several times and will still plan to return.

“The best coffee frappe anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013 via mobile

So one reviewer did not like the vanilla cabinet. Gimmeeabreak. She must be from Wisconsin. But this is New England. If you are going to review the best ice cream shop in New England, then you need to order something unique to this place. The COFFEE FRAPPE here is the best anywhere. (The chocolate frappe does get an honorable mention.) Gray's also has lots of unique flavors: pumpkin, raspberry chip, ginger, grapenut. You can tell that their ice cream is homemade. (Nothing low fat about it.) It is a great treat. It is worth stopping by summer or Fall. Nice location and place to sit outside. Their are lots of cheaper ice cream shops, but Gray's is unique.
