Great wide selection of flavors, formatted in the old-fashioned ice cream parlor style. Not cheap, but offers high quality products in a squeaky clean operation. Servers all do a great job. Lots of take-home products as well. Custom ice cream cakes for any occasion

You can't go wrong with Graeter's ice cream. Every flavor I've tried has been top notch. The Buckeye Blitz is probably my favorite ice cream of all time. I love going in for the seasonal and limited flavors as well. Very lucky to have scoop shops in our area of such quality ice cream!

YUM! The ice cream was great and I loved reading the history of the store. I had the buckeye ice cream and loved the fudge pieces that are homemade. Would for sure recommend.

You need to try the Bourbon ice cream. It is delicious. The blue berry is also very good. There are multiple locations.

A little on the pricey side, yes. But! But. The mint chocolate chip ice cream in a chocolate dipped waffle cone. Priceless.

One of the best Ice cream I have ever tasted, OK service, great ice cream and atmosphere. Ice cream is very creamy and they have them in a large variety of flavours.

A real treat to your taste buds. This will ruin any other thought of ice cream. This is the crown jewel of all cold delicacy. It will take you all of 1 bite to see what I mean by what all others are reaching towards.

Went to pie kitchen ordered a shake, threw it out after 1 sip it was so poorly made. Went to Grater's as I should had to begin with and it was done perfectly.

Stopped into Graters in St Mathews for a scoop. The ice cream is very good and creamy. Only draw back is that there was only ONE person working and there was a long line of patrons waiting to be served

Grater's is such a superior quality cream. No better ice cream in Louisville. Is always clean doesn't have the soured milk smell. Now the new local creamery is more kitschy more flavors than over the rainbow but the quality is more BR than quality.

Thank pam p
