I was in Columbus for 3 days, and had Jeni's Ice Cream 3 times. The Hilton where I was staying, had it available in half pints in the lobby. I also went to the Short North location. and then once at North Market. If you like different flavors you can't go wrong here, plus you can try as many as... More

Great ice cream flavors I couldn't decide what to get. The ice cream was great. Service was great, they were very patient while I was trying to pick my flavors. Will definitely come back when I am in Columbus.

Wanted to try Jeni's ice cream for excellent reviews on tripadvisor and tasted it at the Easton Town Center. Long lines to get in probably due to labor day weekend. Very interesting and unique flavors. The portions could be larger for the price. Have had much better quality and taste at Bruster's

I enjoyed the SweetCorn Blackberry and Goat Cheese with red cherries. Really good and interesting. Worth the calories.

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
