I was there in what seemed to be a rush, the place was really crowded on a very warm & 70 degree day in February. it seemed like there was only 2 people on duty and the blond manager (I think it was Patty) was outstanding in the way she presented herself and...

Between the most delicious homemade ice cream and the candy, you are in the middle of a dieter's nightmare. But all is worth it and just plan to work out an extra 30 minutes. The ice cream parlor is so clean and inviting with the little round tables and old fashion chairs, that you want to sit and enjoy your... More

Tried Graeters Ice Cream because it was recommended. We were told to try the Black Berry Chip. It was outstanding, creamy, deep purple and packed with flavor. We also tried the Oregon Strawberry which we didn't care for as it seemed tasteless. We are used to having a California award winning Thrifty Ice Cream that can mainly be purchased at... More

While visiting Cincinnati for a convention we stumbled upon Graeter's. We were intrigued by the long line waiting to be served. It was worth the wait! Ice cream flavor are unique and delicious. Especially like the coconut! Prices were fair. They also have a selection of cookies , chocolates and sweets. A must for stop for anyone in Cincinnati!

Excellent ice cream flavors and bakery selection. Also they have candy too. Wish I lived around here to visit once a week! Place your order and sit at tables inside or out. Someone stopped by with dog and got treat for their dog too. Sundaes, floats, banana splits and unique flavors along with normal ones.

If you have never had it you don't know what you are missing. From breakfast treats to cookies to candy to Ice cream. It is always great and is made in small batches and hand dipped. Would love to see it world wide for all to enjoy! Make this stop if you get the chance

My wife had chocolate chip coconut cone. She let me try. Simply delicious. Both were delicious. Next time we visit we will definitely... More

There's no comparison to Graeters ice cream. Hand crafted, smooth, delicious... The black raspberry chocolate chip ice cream is amazing both for its taste and huge chunks of chocolate within. I must say though, some people complain that the chunks of chocolate are too big. :-) It's never been a problem for me, that's for sure.

Thank Kycliff
