Well worth the trip. The Strawberry Ice Cream was great and you could sample flavors before picking the one. They handle a lot of variety too.

Lots of different flavours, generous portions. The ice cream is good but a bit too sweet for my liking. Apart from that there's not much to say about the place, it's a very simple cafe that sells ice cream and pastries.

I am not an ice-cream lover, um... not that much indeed. But I'd rather say this is the best one I've ever had!! Dark Blueberry Chocolate chips ... blown me away!!!

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.
