At a recent stop I had a chocolate raspberry chip ice cream cone. Heard it was everyone's favorite. While the amounts of chocolate was over done and the chips were just large pieces. The ice cream had a great flavor but the consistency was too rich. Almost like eating a stick of butter.

This purchase was for a birthday cake for my grandson. If you haven't had a cake from Graeter's, you need to try one. The icing is delicious.

Absolutely the best ice cream!!!! I always try to stop at ANY of the locations when I'm up this way. My wife and I always get the black raspberry chocolate chip and we have NEVER been anything other than 110% happy.

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
