I have travelled the world and have found no better ice cream than here in Cincinnati. This is absolutely the best!

This is truly the best ice cream I've ever had! Even Oprah named this as her favorite ice cream. The ice cream itself is rich, creamy, and tastes heavenly. My favorite is mint chocolate chip, and it has large hunks of chocolate...not just little chips. This is an institution in Cincinnati, and you must have this if you visit. I've... More

Cincy folks are very proud of this first ice cream to add chips to their ice cream! I recommend the Black Raspberry first; then coconut chip; then chocolate chocolate chip. The Buckeye is very rich--so be prepared. Prices are not that bad actually for such a special treat. They are all over the city--like in Hyde Park on Erie Avenue.... More

There is definitely a difference with Grater's Ice Cream! There is just something about the texture that provides a rich taste, and it is easily addictive. While all of the flavors are delicious, the Bourbon Ball is probably the best ice cream I have EVER tasted!

If you love ice cream as much as I do you must try Graeter's! My family and I go there about once a month and are impressed with every flavor we get. Great service, very clean.

Yummy ice cream!! No more expensive than other ice cream chains, and way better flavors! The "Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip" really was as good as I was told, and it is what they are known for. I loved it! The service was excellent also!

The ice cream was great, lots of unusual flavors. I got Buckeye Blitz and the chocolate chunks in it melted in my mouth. I'd planned to go back just to buy some chocolate. The only downside is there is limited seating, but the ice cream is worth standing to eat it.

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.
