Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip is a Must Try!

Pretty good ice cream and that is what you are coming for. This commercial company does small batch for quality over quantity and it shows. I loved the Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip but I did try their Classic Chocolate Chip (stolen from my husband's cup) and both are delicious! I am partial to... read more

Ok, I shouldn't tell people this, but as well as ice cream, Graeter's sells baked goods, including donuts. Not just any donuts, the BEST donuts in the area. They are SOOOOOO good! I love the chocolate iced ones. The plain raised ones are good as well and the cake ones are yummy. The only bad thing is that they don't... More

Great local ice cream spot. Friendly and quick service, reasonable prices, nice selection. I broke my diet to indulge and I am glad I did!

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.
