Looking for good ice cream - this is the place

This ice cream shop was across the pedestrian mall from the hotel so we decided to walk over and give it a try. Apparently this is a very popular ice cream brand in Cincinnati. The flavors are a bit difficult to decipher, other than the obvious ones, but I would say probably all very good. The... read more

I'm partial to their chip ice creams. Huge chunks of chocolate. As treats growing up we would get bittersweet parfait sat Graeters. They are still as delicious and memorable. You won't be disappointed.

Some of the flavors were unique and creative, like peach in the summer. They even have a selection of diabetic friendly options. However, I found everything too sweet. I prefer other ice cream shops but it's definitely worth a try.

My husband and I live in Cincinnati but we are not originally from here. Graeter's is one of the top ice cream shops sprinkled around the city. I would recommend either the Fountain Square location or Hyde Park for great options to eat outside the shop. The black raspberry chocolate chip is their specialty!

Growing up in Cincinnati, it was a treat to stop into Graeters in Hyde Park on the way home from school. Now that I live in Michigan, I stop in whenever I can when I'm visiting home. Just yummy!

Graeter's anywhere is wonderful but the restored location in Union Terminal complete with original tables and chairs and decorated with Rookwood Pottery was like taking a step back in time. I decided to forego my Black Raspberry chip and try a watermelon sorbet - wow! Wonderful flavor. A trip to Cincy is not complete without a stop for Graeter's!

If you are in Cincinnati, you must visit a Graeters Ice Cream shop. This is the best ice cream in the country! Try the chip flavors. You won't believe the size of the chips! Order bittersweet chocolate sauce--heaven. When you go back for your second visit, have a Turtle Sundae. Truly decadent.
