Great environment for families and to get the freshest and best ice cream you've ever had. It has that old ice cream parlor feel, including a drive up window.

Graeter's is ... well ... Great! We went to the downtown location years ago, but this time we stopped at the Grand Avenue location. A little bit off the beaten track, but clean and immaculate, and the perfect way to end the day. The only thing better - maybe - is the Sicilian gelato we had in Rome two years... More

We had the cookie monster sundae. For $5 this was splittable between two adults and 3 kids, so the value ice cream this good is amazing. Ended up stopping here both nights we were in the area.

Some unusual flavors, and they were wonderful. Be sure to try the raspberry chip. I was told this is the best seller. Don't know if it really is, or they were trying to push a non-seller, but it was delicious (just kidding, Graeters!

We stopped at Graeter's after a trip to the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati at the request of a nearby fan from the area. A local tradition for four generations, the quality of the ice cream is easy to detect because the flavors are very strong. In many ways, it reminded our group of a small-scale version of Kilwin's,... More

Incredibly creamy, rich ice cream made in small batches. The chips are huge pieces of chocolate. All pints are hand packed to eliminate air.Cones, bowls, sundaes, malts, shakes, ice cream cakes and pies are a Cincinnati legend. Sent an assortment to a event planner in Charleston, SC. as a thank you Her staff devoured it before she got a chance... More

It's Graeter's, What more can you say!!! It's AMAZING and DELICIOUS! The Black Raspberry Chocolate chip is so delicious and basically just choose your Favorite flavor and you are going to Love it. There's nothing like the taste and consistency of this particular brand. It's a must try ice-cream, the BEST.

We have visited a lot of places and are always on the prowl for some good ice cream. Graeters is by far our favorite. Nice variety of flavors, sundaes and really love some of the specialty seasonal ice creams they come out with throughout the year. The best part for me is that the ice cream does NOT leave that...

Graeters is now on Broadway in the play Dead Accounts. It is uniquely Cincinnati but now available across the country. But come in at night and share cones and dishes with friends. You have to buy any kind of ice cream with chips. The chips are really chunks of chocolate. Its hard to go anywhere else for dessert after a... More
