So many choices! All delicious! So creamy! For those of us who could only eat dairy-free, they offered to "sanitize" the scooper and start a new container for us. Even in the freezer cold weather, late at night, the place was bustling with business, since everyone knows how delicious the ice cream is. Very nice set up for eating inside... More

Winter comfort. Near the 'dollar' cinema this place has a continuous stream of loyal and new curious customers. Sometimes the lines can be long. The service crew do a great job of the scoops and cones. I also picked up some Buckeye candy. It is a great gift for peanut butter and chocolate lovers. I tried the Cherry flavored creamy... More

Graeter's is the smoothest scooped ice cream available. Even in Columbus winters. Try an ice cream and complimenting gelato.

This spot, located across from a college campus and a seminary, is a favorite for students and locals. The ice cream scoops are generous and every flavor is a treat. Do note: ADA access is through the rear of the store.

We visited Graeters this weekend. I ordered the raspberry chocolate ice cream and it was delicious. I've also eaten the buckeye blitz. They are both very good. I will definitely go there again when in the mood for ice cream.

I ordered one scoop of salted caramel ice cream for $4.00 and it was very good! I couldn't finish it all. Definitely a nice place to stop for a treat!
