Visiting family in May 2012 this place was amazing! Completely lived up to its reputation of gorgeous ice cream

Some of the best ice cream and other treats you'll ever have. Their old 'French style' of manufacturing stands out! Love their 'doggie ice cream nights' first Thursdays each month. Still Grandma's favorite reward for good grades!

The quality of the ice cream is OK. Other than that, this place is a joke. The service was awful and the employees looked like they hated their jobs. The prices are ridiculous for the quantity of ice cream that you get. You can sample different flavors, which is great. However, the employees act as if they have to go... More

Like Skyline Chili, this is a bit overhyped. The ice cream was good, but nothing more. The place seemed very corporate and I didn't see a lot of creativity in the flavors. I wouldn't make any special trips to stop here, but there's a location by fountain square that is nice place to stop at during a warm day to... More

We stopped and got ice cream on the recommendation of the server at the restaurant we had dinner. They served the ice cream there but only the standard vanilla and chocolate. Wow what great flavors. We were greeted as we walked in the doors and received a smile thanks when we paid. Great service and even better ice cream. Black... More

It was my first visit to Cincinnati. Everyone and I mean everyone told me. No matter what you have to have the Graeters raspberry chip ice cream. So I was staying at the Westin Hotel and saw it right across the street. Easy walk across the street from there. Ended up getting a cherry ice cream and they were right.... More

This is one of two ice cream stores that are awesome in the Greater Cincinnati area (the other is in Bellevue, KY). If you get anything with chocolate chips - you will find nice chunks of chocolate not little chips. The Black Raspberry and the Mint are by far the best. But if you want something nutty - go with...

I've eaten at Graeter's more times than I can count. It was a favored treat when my son was growing up and, full circle, now a lovely evening out with my 80+ year old mother. It's obvious that all of their ice cream and related frozen treats are beyond compare, but their baked goods and candies are marvelous as well.... More
