Local family owned ice cream parlors located in several places in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Their most popular flavor is black raspberry chocolate chip. It really should be called chocolate chunk because the pieces of the chocolate they make are huge! They make wonderful candies and pastries also. Try the carmel ice-cream or coconut chocolate chip. Yummmm.

Love, love, Graeter's ice cream. We love sitting by Fountain Square with our treats. It's the best ice cream we've had, and that's saying a lot, especially for my husband! There's also a nice selection of bakery and sorbets to choose from.

Gerat Location within Fountain Square. I grew up in Cincinnati and this was my first time back to the arean in over 11 years. Took my wife and kids there 3 consecutive days since they enjoyed the ice cream very much. Same gentleman helped us each day and he truly put a smile on my kids faces each night we... More

I found this place to be OK. We had to wait about 10 minutes to get served. The ice cream was ok but not outstanding. If you do go, the best deal is to buy a prepackaged quart

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
