Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter started handcrafting Graeter's Ice Cream in 1870. Today, generations later, we proudly remain family owned and operated. This is made possible thanks to you, our legion of loyal fans. For a century and a half, Graeter's has remained steadfast in our commitment to making ice cream in 2 gallon French Pots one batch at a time.

I had the mocha chocolate chip - but you must know that the "chips" are often huge chunks and are to die for.....

I am now a huge fan of Graeter's! After eating here on vacation I was pretty excited to find out that it's sold in pints at my local Smith's store. I've tried the Coconut Chocolate Chip and the Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip and loved both. This location was a fun destination and made for a delightful summer evening. Genuinely the... More

Whenever I go to Dayton to visit family, I always look forward to going to Graeter's (which I do pretty much every day of my visits) the ice cream is delicious but it is a.little overpriced. They need to expand to nc!!

Stopped after dinner with a group of friends, several of whom are diabetic. We were thrilled to see several low glycemic choices which received rave reviews. I had the Buckeye Chocolate that was excellent! Definitely recommend.

We have to have Graeter's every time we visit from Florida! Bad reviewers must not have tried the right flavors! Next time try: Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip or Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chip! OMG! Love it!!

So disappointed. when you walk into an ice cream Shop you want to see the ice cream. Why in the world are they hiding the ice cream in their coolers? Tried the gelato and it was very icy and gelato should never have ice crystals. Settled on the vanilla ice cream and my husband had the coffee. Both were slight... More

Some of the best ice cream ever, up there with my all time favorite Haagen Dazs. Be adventurous and try some of their interesting flavors. Well worth the trip.

Even though Graeter's began in Cincinnati, we've been enjoying it here in Dayton since the 80's. They still only make their ice cream in 2 gallon french pots, and hand pack it. So every flavor bursts with yummy goodness! I believe their most popular flavor might be the black raspberry chocolate chip. But there are so many to choose from,... More
