This is a delicious way to spend any part of your day. Yes, it is a tad expensive - but you'll enjoy it.

I admit that I am partial to Graeters ice cream as I love the bourbon ball ice cream. It still rocks as do many of the other flavors.

Be ready to get your wallet, credit cards, and next of kin ready. Good ice cream, but VERY expensive. They do have kids cones and cups, which have a lot of ice cream in there, be sure to ask for them. Family of 6, we spent almost $40 for ice cream :(

We traveled to this location for ice cream for lunch while in town for Wheelchair Basketball Nationals. We went there as a group as a few said the ice cream was outstanding. It definitely was. I would recommend the Bourbon Ball Sundae as they have a hand whipped toping they put on the ice cream that finishes it off. All... More

Gets good reviews and if you are in the area nearby its worth a visit. Frankly we have a couple of other places in Louisville with better ice cream and desserts. The service is fine and the visual appearance is, well, ordinary. Comfy Cow and Homemade Pie Kitchen are superior in looks and taste.

High quality ice cream served in a clean shop by friendly people. Even with 8 of us there was little wait. Everyone enjoyed it. Was a nice end to a busy day.

Some other spots are good, and some are trendy, but for the very best ice cream head to Graeter's. Rich, creamy, with fresh ingredients. Great seasonal specials. My favorites are peach and salted carmel....but I like lots of other ones, too.
