Good, Solid Ice Cream

I had this before Jeni's, and was satisfied though not awed by the experience. This is good ice cream for everyday occasions, and/or for people who are not interested in creative, exciting ice cream such as one would find at Jeni's.

We'd heard of Grater's ice cream but recently visited for the first time. Wonderful, flavor-filled ice cream and other treats made our mouths water as we debated about which flavors to select. What made this such a treat for me was to find 4 low sugar choices. Many places don't offer low sugar options, and they had several, so I... More

Stopped by Grater's Ice Cream after dinner for desert. Probably shouldn't have, but glad we did. I'd had Grater's purchased at a grocery store before, but never at an actual Grater's location. The milkshake I got was fantastic. It's a great place to take the family or your significant other to have an enjoyable ice cream. The only downside to... More

Another great local ice cream is Graeter's. It tastes good and the company has been there for long time! Should try the seasonal flavors as they are for limited time.

Not as good as Jenny's ice cream but a very respectable second. the chocolate coconut is wonderful and my favorite by far.

When traveling I always like to try restaurants which have a rich local history. Read the history on their webpage for an interesting read. The icecream was delicious and I really liked the atmosphere of the old fashioned shop.

If you are looking for excellent quality ice cream made the old fashioned way, look no further. The buckeye blast flavor is exceptional and comes with massive chunks of chocolate and peanut butter fudge.

There are a lot of Graeter's locations in Ohio, and to be honest, they all serve the same ice cream, which is great. But this location in Bexley is a favorite with me and Matt. Many locations are a little cramped in their design, especially when they are busy. But this one is open and spacious. There is usually plenty... More

Graeter's Ice Cream is creamy, delicious, and healthy. The menu items show various kinds of ice cream and sherbets. The sundaes and banana splits are delicious as well as the milk shakes. The service is friendly and prompt. My favorite places are in downtown Westerville and in the Easton Maul Town Center.

We admit to be Graeter's fans, regardless of location, but this happens to be our favorite. We are frequent Drexel Movie attenders and it's a short walk to Graeter's after the show. Whether my choice is a seasonal selection (now peach for me), it's a good value, and fun. Look up at the old time fans with the belt drive... More
