If you want a scrumptious ice cream cone, sundae, or milk shake go to Graeter's! I have tried several flavors but chocolate chip remains my ultimate favorite. They have big chunks of chocolate in their wonderful vanilla ice cream,

What can I say, "Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip" is my personal favorite! Graeters has been featured on the Food Network and History Channel for their "French Pot" method of producing ice cream, and what most folks DON'T KNOW is that every single pint is hand-dipped - you wouldn't believe the biceps on the "scoopers"!!

I traveled to the area for business but with all the talk of Graeters ice cream I knew I had to try it. Graeters definitely lives up to its reputation. They had great ice cream, a friendly staff, and a history I can appreciate.

Coconut chip is my favorite, delicious with huge chunks of chocolate. We visit the Westbourne location. Friendly staff. Expensive, but worth it for a special treat. Butter cookies are also delicious.

Chips the size of you thumb, creamy goodness with many favorite flavored. Try the famous raspberry chip or the Buckeye Blitz or Toffee chip with milk chocolate and toffee pieces. Splurg on a bittersweet Sunday with whipped cream and toasty nuts. Outstanding!

Everyone said I had to try Graeter's when visiting Cincy. So I did, and I definitely was not disappointed, the ice cream was rich and creamy. The downtown location (not sure how many more there are, I hope a lot) Was perfect and central to an afternoon stroll

Over The Rhine is such a fun area. We so enjoyed our banana split while people watching and the beautiful evening city lights.

Having moved out of Cincinnati, I miss this the most! As soon as you walk in, you're greeted by the smell of pumpkin in the Fall, peppermint and chocolate in the Winter months and orange and chai in the summer. The people are friendly as well and the location is great as you walk up and down Ludlow. The ice-cream... More

I am lucky enough to have grown up in Cincinnati and had Graeters ice cream my whole life. The Graeter family are from Cincinnati. I now live in Charlotte NC and Publix and Fresh Market sell pints...enough to give a Cincinnati girl her Graeter's fix. It is absolutely the best. It was on Oprah's best Christmas program even. My favorite... More

I am not a big ice cream fan. Went with my family who all love ice cream. I might be converted if I lived close to Graeter's ice cream! Had the toffee chocolate chip and it was so tasty. Everyone enjoyed the flavors they picked. We went back a day later and tried other flavors. Not a tremendous amount of... More
