I used to live down the road and visited often. Now, when I visit Columbus, this is a stop on our list. The play area is great for small kids. My kids are 8 and 10 (too tall and outgrown this zone) There are plenty of flavors and combos. Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip is a good one! My new favorite... More

The "tour" is now a tiny museum style history of Graeter's, as there is no factory here anymore. They now have a "big factory", according to the manager on duty. They haven't had tours here for over 2 years.

Stopped here with two 6 YOs and boy was it a hit. We visited last year and this year's visit was even better. The mocha chip and black raspberry chip were amazing. The play area is very clean with several different things the kids can play on to work off the sugar. The staff were all very polite. You can... More

The ice cream is so good. The best mint chocolate chip I've had. I really don't know what else there is to say. If you don't do a tour just find a shop and get a scoop. You won't regret it.

If your in Ohio you must stop by a Graeter's for ice cream. You won't regret stopping. Graters has a wide selection of home made ice cream.

My family went to eat at Greater's we love the ice cream. We let our 2 boys have fun on their play area. Eventually one of their workers came in the play area and started yelling very loudly in front of every one at my 6 year old son to stop. My son was running around like all the other... More

My daughter had a salted caramel classic sundae, husband had the one scoop chocolate chunk, and I had the raspberry and mango sorbet (one scoop each). It was good, but for $12+ (for three ice creams?) I would have expected a little more. The "factory tour" is not what we expected. It was more pictures and copies of old menus,... More

This shop is fun and so kid friendly. You just have to plan your visit to not hit peak preschool your hours. Gets crowded quick. They usually have dry ice to buy. Put it in your cooler and have ice cream at your picnic!

The eating are here is just like the vast majority of Graeter's locations. The unique parts are the self-guided tour, the kids play area and the organized tours also offered. The ice cream is just as great as their other locations but we like this for the large, indoor, kids' play area. It it popular and can get crowded at... More

Graeter's never disappoints! The choice in flavors is amazing. It is always compared to Jeni's. We tried that place and will never return. Graeter's is our first choice if we are going out to get ice cream. Friends have had kids do the tour and found it a great way to spend an afternoon complete with free samples.
