I stopped here for dessert after lunch and it was heavenly. The chocolate ice cream with the dark chocolate truffle chips was too die for, and if I wasn’t so full from lunch, I would have gotten another one.

A Cincinnati staple so whether you are visiting or live in Cincinnati, you must get to Graeter's and get you the best Ice Cream you are ever going to taste. This stuff is so good I don't care what time of year it is if I am passing a Graeter's Im stopping.

Eat at any local restaurant, but have your desert here. Great ice cream. Clean. Good service. You will probably have to stand in line for 10 minutes but it's worth it.

Lots of choices for just ice cream, or shakes and sundaes. Staff was friendly and allowed tastings of the various flavors.

It should be called chocolate chunk as the chocolate pieces are large slivers. The black raspberry is wonderful. It's so good I had 2 double scoops in one day!

This is probably one of the best ice creams that I have ever had. Texture, flavor - what else could you ask for in a good ice cream.

Great ice cream! Loved the variety available! It was walking distance from our hotel and right on fountain square.

As travelers we have been spoiled by so many new ice cream stores around America that have exciting flavors. I like to be able to see the ice cream not just order by a list. Graeter's Ice Cream was not as good as I thought it would be. The staff was very nice.

Friends from Cincinnati recommended we try the ice cream here; it did not disappoint. It is on the expensive side, so expect that when you go. It's right in downtown near the Westin, so it's easy to find. Would definitely get this again if in the area!
