Ice cream! Wow! The varieties of flavor are sure to meet everyone's individual taste. We loved the salted caramel, and then either the raspberry chocolate or the cherry chocolate come in as our second favorite. But, get a scoop of each solves that issue!

there will usually be a line, is worth the wait – – –vanilla ice cream with the fudge chunks is something that must be tried

Wife and I go here a lot, usually after a meal we make this our dessert. Cones, seasonal flavors, sundaes and splits - you name it - they're all great. The Crescent Springs locations has cakes and pastries, but you have to be quick to catch them in stock because they do sell out fast. My favorite characteristic about this... More

I popped in here for an ice cream having heard good things. It was nice, not amazing -perhaps I am spoiled by Italian gelato- but the staff made it a 5 star for me. Friendly, personable and polite. They made such a difference. I would go there again just for them

Another must when in town--the hubs likes the ice cream but I prefer going straight for the chocolate. This particular location had a limited selection (of chocolate) and was more a mix of ice cream, chocolate & baked goods but we managed to find some good stuff to being home for our staff too! Love my Graeter's!

I love Graeter's ice cream, but when I go downtown the the main office I stop in this one before going to work for my coffee and pastry and watch the people walking around on Fountain Square. Everything at Graeter's is good.

I had a chocolate gelato here that was excellent. They also have yummy cupcakes, cakes, and breakfast pastry. There was always a line, but it moved fast, and the staff were just great. An excellent place to get Cincinnati souvenirs - chocolate!

I mean it's ice cream right? What's the big deal? That's what my son said until he tried the Buckeye ice cream. It's delicious homemade ice cream. It's creamy and just downright YUMMY. A must do!
