Lickin at its best.

I was raised on a farm and this ice cream is just about as good as what we made by hand. Only thing it's missing is the slight salt after taste we'd get on the farm when we added a tad too much in the freeze process. This is as good as it gets from a commercial ice cream enterprise.... read more

Great food and service. Top shelf atmosphere. It's a place to really sit back at and enjoy excellent service and great food.

I have been to Graeters many times in Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus. I love their ice cream. They have expanded the menu, so go again if you have not been in awhile. The big claim to fame is the big chocolate chunks in the ice cream- vanilla, coffee, chocolate, raspberry, etc. Not low calorie, but they have some sherbets, etc.... More

This is our favorite neighborhood family hangout place for ice cream in town.... We have been coming to this place for years and it is still one of the most delicious ice creams I ever tasted (and I am very picky when it comes to ice cream ;D) Try it, you won't be disappointed. Lines could get long though especially... More

Had a dip of coffee chocolate chip ice cream in a dish and my husband had Madagasgar Vanilla Bean in a cone. Both excellent. High quality ice cream and very efficient staff. Rather noisy in the seating area due to a party in the special room and the spillover into the cafe. But really worth a stop!

We stopped here for dessert after dinner in Yellow Springs. I must be easy to please, because my review disagrees with some of the previous reviews. I found the shop clean. The workers I came into contact with were friendly. I absolutely love ice cream. We all had different types, and I thought it was excellent. The server was very... More

They're very overpriced for what you get and the icecream is nothing special. You can get just as good or better at the grocery. Stick to youngs dairy, ritters, or cold stone

I can’t believe how smooth and rich tasting this ice cream is! The store has a very cute old fashion feel to it that makes me want to sit there and eat my ice cream. There is not as many options as cold stone, but the quality of ice cream is much better here. I got the 1870 Tower with... More

Graeter's has good ice cream, but much of it includes corn syrup (I have a corn allergy), so I don't go often. They sent me a coupon for a free birthday sundae, but it expired by the time I was able to use it--what a disappointment! Plus, as they suggested, I had taken a couple of friends and ended up...
