I tried the mica chip and then ordered the chocolate chip ice cream cone and some chocolate bark to try. The ice cream and chocolates were good but I still think Graeters is better. I love the big chips in Graeter's chip flavors. Also, Esther Price chocolate candies are better than Aglamesis. Service was good.

We visit every time we come to my husbands hometown of Oakley. Best ice cream I have ever had in any state I've ever been to!

This is one of the best ice creams I had in my life, and it is up there with Savannah's Leopold's, on a category by themselves. The ambience of the place and the wonderful old gentleman that runs it, Mr Aglamesis himself, add to the experience. (and for Johnny Cash fans like me: Rumour has it that the man himself... More

The debate will go on forever. But in my opinion Aglemesis ice cream is the best. Graeters is outstanding also. And we are so lucky to have 2 of the top 5 nationally rated Ice cream makers right here in Cincinnati. Walking into Aglemesis in Oakley takes you back to the days of the old fashioned fountain soda shops. The... More

This place has the best hand dipped chocolates, and the best ice cream around. Everything I have ever gotten there has been delicious.

I know many people here think the "other" place has better ice cream but I disagree. However, I am a Gold Star fan also so who knows for sure. In any case, I love the store, love the old fashioned parlor feel of Aglamesis, love the table service - all above and beyond. Their ice cream is amazing but they... More

Aglamesis was founded in Cincinnati and is one if my favorite local ice cream stores. I have been to the Oakley and Montgomery stores many times and they offer a quaint ice cream experience where they serve their own French pot ice creams.
