Hands down, the best ice cream I have ever had!! I have been here several times (every time I drive through Cincinnati) and can't decide on a favorite, but the butter pecan, coconut, pineapple pecan, and banana ice cream are all amazing. Their candy is also fantastic...the "Pecandes" ( = turtles) are addictive and I have now started having them... More

This is some of the best tasting ice cream in an old soda fountain setting. The selection of favors are good and they have seasonal favors that had fresh fruit. They also have the customary soda fountain treats. They also have a huge selection of various gourmet candies.

The ice cream is wonderful, the ice cream menu is creative, the ambience reminiscent of an old time ice cream parlor - a great place to stop. If you don't like ice cream, no worries, their chocolate selection is big and very tasty.

STILL say the ice cream is better than Graeters ( with the exception of the chip flavors) and there is no comparison with the candy....hands down Aglamesis has far better candy. The Easter eggs and the homemade carmels stand out as spectacular. Only 2 locations vs. Graeters dozens so I am sure that is why everyone talks about them.

I stop there everytime I am in Cincinnati. I alway will bring home their chocolate milk balls. They are the best also. It's like going back 50 years when you eat there. they give you your ice cream in metal tray/bowls.

Husband and I stopped by after dinner for something light. Sat at the counter so we could watch them make everything, which was entertaining. We ordered a vanilla shake to split and they put it into two separate glasses without even asking. Husband said it was the best shake he's every had. I wasn't over or under impressed. It was...

I usually visit the original shop, it's an old time soda fountain with a counter of outstanding chocolates. The ice cream is made the way it's always been made-delicious. There really isn't a competition with Graeters, it just depends on what you like. Aglamesis chip flavors usually include lots of tiny chips. I think their French vanilla is the best... More
