Always save room for dessert at Graeters! Awesome ice cream and unique flavors. So creamy! Good place to stop for a late night scoop or sundae. Always clean, always friendly and always quick. Outside tables to enjoy your ice cream in the summer breeze.

I just received an e-mail from Trip Advisor showing the 10 top Ice Cream Parlors in the US. There is absolutely no way that their tasters tried Graeters from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have tasted ice creams from all over and Graeters is by far the best! Oprah voted the vanilla the best she ever had eaten. They have expanded their... More

My daughter lives in Cincinnati and said this was the best place to get ice cream and she was right. The ice cream was rich and creamy. I had butter pecan and next time I will get a double scoop.

Upon reading the reviews below, we figured we had to check out this place. My wife and I shared a banana split with black raspberry chip and coconut ice creams topped with homemade sauces of marshmallow and caramel sauces and homemade whipped cream with nuts. And while I could find nothing wrong with any of the sauces, it was clear... More

I didn't understand the hype. It's good ice cream but not 5 stars. Along the lines of Ben and Jerry's and other premium brands. The location at fountain plaza is open late until 11 pm. I had a scoop of buckeye something and it was good but nothing special that I would go back for however, it was a nice... More

There are so many good ice cream options, and they have a bakery as well with free samples (at least in the afternoon). We were only in Cincinnati for 24 hours, but we went to Graeters after both dinner and lunch. We had the banana chocolate chip, the peach, and the Buckeye Blitz as the mini-scoops one time, and the... More

Best ice cream ever !!! Not just chocolate chips - chocolate hunks - loved it. the one in Erlanger has a nice ice cream fountain feel to it with wrought iron tables and chairs - great place to take the family.

This place came highly recommended from friends that frequent the Cinci area. We had decided to check this place out after we ate at Eli's BBQ. It was an end to a great meal that we had! The servers were very nice and insisted you try their flavor of the day which was also very good. All the deserts were... More

This is some of the best ice cream. The flavors are not the crazy and weird but traditional and consistent. Mocha chip, double chocolate chip, toffee chip, black cherry chocolate chip, coconut chocolate chip and more regular flavors and then there are the summer or seasonal specials. Unbelievable. Tasty. Flavorful. Super sized chocolate chips. Great ingredients. Go there and taste... More
