Yummmmmm

I'm a huge fan of ice cream ... it's a good group. This is my favorite place ..I usually get the buckeye ... but they are all good.

A warm night in Cincinnati is easily addressed with a visit to Graeter's Ice Cream. The line usually moves right along and the reward is excellent ice cream which is rich and smooth. The fresh fruit (strawberry and peach) is pretty darn good.

How could this place be less than five stars. The location is perfect. I love that there are so many varieties of ice cream here. The customer service is pretty good as well. The only thing is that the store itself can get a bit tight if there is an event going on.

I was told not to miss Graeter's Ice Cream and the advice was right. I actually got gelato both times I went, but others in my party got the ice cream. Everyone loved what they had. The lines are long if there is an event in Fountain Square, but it is worth the wait.

While spending the day in Cincinnati, I decided to indulge in some decadent dessert. A friend of mine recommended this place before I left on my trip, and, trusting her judgement, I decided to give it a try. Plus, it was easy to find and right across the street from a parking garage. My friend recommended the raspberry chocolate chip,... More

Very nice place to have breakfast and all kinds of desserts! The main attraction is the ice cream with a lot of different flavors. You also can have all that little mlb helmets used at ballpartks for ice cream :)

What a grand place to indulge in my favorite flavors. The signature black raspberry with chocolate chunks is my all-time favorite. They flavor of the month this month (June 2015) is summer peach with chunks of fresh peaches. It's not a complete trip to the square in downtown for me without visiting Graeter's!

One of the best ice cream brands of all time! Wish they were located everywhere, as I now live in SC. Black Raspberry chip is a favorite and their turtle sundaes are to die for! Mmmm!!!

While the ice cream tasted good, mine was very soft for hand dipped...at least the hand dipped that I'm accustomed to being served.

A must go when visiting. So good. There's a reason it's Oprah's favorite ice cream. Try something with the chips in it.
