Best ice cream!!

I have lived in The Cincinnati area for over 20 years now. One of the first places we visited was Graeter's Ice Cream in Springdale. It was love at first taste. We even seek out grocery stores that carry Graeter's ice cream when we travel. They have wonderful sundaes in their stores, but I prefer... read more

Great ice cream! My favorite is the coconut chip with bittersweet chocolate topping-delicious! The raspberry chocolate chip is great, too

This is our go-to place for ice cream and baked goods! The ice cream is so creamy and so many flavors to pick from! Seasonal favorite is peach! And, the baked goods are always so yummy! We take pints of ice cream when visiting our out-of-town family and friends packed in dry ice! Enjoyed by all!

Greater' s is not a restaurant- it is an ice cream and baked goods shop. The Double Chocolate Chip ice cream has humongous chunks of chocolate. Graeter's is the best ice cream You will ever eat!

Friendly staff, a throw back to old fashioned ice cream parlors, generous helpings, big chunks of chocolate ! Favorite place to visit in the summer, but also for special seasonal flavors.

This is a terrific bakery/ ice cream shop,.their bakery items are delicious and competitively priced. They have a wide variety to choose from. They also have a large assortment of candies. But by far my most favorite reason to stop is for ice cream from their flavors of the month to their huge selection of their historic standard flavors. Their... More

Was in Cincy for a girl's trip. Had heard about Graeter's and wanted to give it a try! It was as good, maybe better than I heard! Enjoyed a Sundae the first day, came back the 2nd day for a "traditional" dish of black cherry chocolate chip which was really chunks of wonderful dark chocolate! Yum!!!
