Jenis is a must have in columbus. You will never forget the interesting and delicious mix of flavors that will delight your taste buds and send you on a wild ride. Forget about Graeters (yawnsVille). What else can I say aside from YUM!!!!

The Ice cream is everything it is cracked up to be! I normally don't eat ice cream because of the calories. Boy am I glad I tried Jeni's.

The ice-creams here are wonderful and quirky. Where else can you get goal cheese with red cherries, whiskey and pecans, queen city cayenne --- you get the picture. But they are all very good, and the servers are always friendly and enthusiastic about letting you sample the various offerings. The goal cheese with red cherries is actually one of my... More

So, being from WI and knowing good dairy (especially frozen custard), I have to give Jeni's a 5 star! The ice cream is awesome! I told my friends 'the devil makes that ice cream'; it's sooo good it's sinful lol. We visited the store in Bexley and you are encouraged by staff to try samples of their unique flavors. Well,...

Everybody raved about Jeni's the first week or so I was at Ohio State. For my first date with my girlfriend of now a year, we ate dinner at the Blackwell and then trekked here (bless her for wearing heels all the way there). After a couple bites, all I could think was that I wasted some of my money... More

The staff blew me away with the knowledge and recommendations of their ice creams. With each sample the server enlightened me on what makes that particular ice cream unique and amazing. He really enhanced my experience and that is what truly matters. The establishment is very friendly and very clean. I recommend this to anyone.

As a Columbus native, we love Jeni's! Who doesn't? My biggest complaint would be the service I've received in Grandview on more than one occasion. The staff isn't outright rude but seemingly flippant or indifferent. I have also been to Jeni's at both Short North locations, Bexley, and Easton. The Grandview staff just isn't friendly; sorry.

While in the Short North neighborhood of Columbus we stopped in Jeni's to try their ice cream. It came highly recommended by a friend who lives in the area, and I can see why. I tried the salty caramel and brown butter almond brittle. Both were a delicious treat. Service was friendly and efficient too.

Jeni's Ice Cream is a great place to go when you want ice cream but are tired of regular flavors. They have great tasting ice cream and great service at all of their locations we've been to and it has been a constant place to take family that visits.
