My daughter and I went one Friday eveneing for some Greater's. The Mason shop was hopping, even on a cool night. The employees were very friendly and they moved though the lines with quick pace. If you have never been to Greater's, I highly recommend it.

The ice cream is top notch for sure but waiting in lines three deep is ridiculous.The staff ignores its customers waiting for bakery items and only focuses on customers getting ice cream when they are busy.I do like the idea of their rewards program since they are so overpriced. At least I feel like I am getting something back .

Any of Graeter's ice creams are a delight to the taste buds ~ Oprah even agrees; but, for some of the finest chocolates, rolls, cinnamon twist donuts? You will also find those at Graeters. Land when Fat Tuesday rolls around, the freshest Paczkis are made right here too. Conveniently located throughout the city, you won't be disappointed when you visit... More

We live in Cincinnati and Graeter's has ruined me for any other ice cream. It is hands down the best anywhere, and I've traveled all over the US and overseas. We took our 2 1/2 year old grandson for a cone recently after a dr's visit where he got two shots and didn't even flinch. Good boys get the best!

I recommend the salted caramel, black raspberry chip, or chocolate chip cookie dough. I also love the sorbet.

I usually frequent the Reading Road Graeter's. The staff are lovely and the ice cream is so so good. I have to say that their baked goods are pretty darn awesome too.

There is a local fanaticism about this place, as you can see by the reviews. The ice cream is good, but wildly overpriced. It is supposed to be great due to their special way of making it, but the outcome is no different than a high-end ice cream at the supermarket which is much cheaper.

When visiting Cincinnati, we saw that this place was rated very high on the list of eateries, so decided to try it. In my opinion, it was nothing special. Typically overpriced ice cream parlor, with mediocre ice cream. The atmosphere was nothing special either. Ok, but have had much better for less money.

14 years ago I was taken to Graeter's by friends from Cincinnatti. Oh my! The Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip is simply the best ever. We have been coming back ever since. We visit the Graeter's in Louisville more frequently (six? locations in Louisville) I was told that there was a quart of raspberries in each half gallon of Ice Cream.... More

I must admit I am no ice cream expert because I have it infrequently but when I do I don't want to waste calories. Graeter's and I along with my wife have had a love for each other since my college days of the 80's. We would often visit the Hyde Park location for a delicious treat & after graduating... More
