Description: Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter...
Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter started handcrafting Graeter's Ice Cream in 1870. Today, generations later, we proudly remain a family owned and operated company. This is made possible thanks to you, our legion of loyal fans. For a century and a half, Graeter's has remained steadfast in our commitment to making ice cream not the easy way, but rather, the only way it should be: by hand, with real cream, sugar and eggs, in 2 gallon French Pots one batch at a time.

I love Graeter's, and there really isn't any ice cream that can compare in my mind. This particular location is always very friendly and fast with service. I have never tried any of their ice cream that I do not like. I usually go to the location now currently on Harrison ave. and they have very similar service.

Very yummy ice cream! Smooth, creamy and so many flavors. It tastes very natural. They even had exotic flavors like Madagascar vanilla and red velvet cake.

The best icecream you will ever eat :) Make sure to try the raspberry chocolate chip or pumpkin (may be seasonal) if it's your first time... Don't forget the Graeters whipped cream!

It's not Aglamesis, but pretty close. Always a great selection of ice cream and coffee. We like the one in West Chester, close to West Chester Hospital Medical Center.

Everytime I have any flavor chocolate chip ice cream, what goes through my mind is why Graeter's doesn't change the names to CHUNK. You get chunks of chocolate, very little chips. Whatever flavor you enjoy, there are chunks - not chips.

A Cincinnati institution, Graeter's is a must do for anyone visiting town. The shops serve scoops of their ice cream alone, but their sundaes are always a treat, too. If you like chips, expect to find chocolate boulders in your ice cream--sometimes too big for your spoon! Black raspberry chip is their best known flavor, but all their flavors are... More

Graeter's ice cream in Mariemont. Best ice cream with nectar syrup ever. This store is a step back in time with all the richness of the past and current conveniences. Any store is great, this one the best

Great Ice Cream! What more can you say. The best in Cincinnati. Lots of flavors to choose from, plus seasonal favorites. Great crew of young people waiting on you. All great students, because that is all they heir. Lots of sundae flavors and smoothies. They also have a bakery department with made to order cakes.

The ice cream is very good, but I wish they had more flavors without chips. I like chocolate chips but the ones they use are so huge that sometimes you can barely taste the flavor around them. If that doesn't bother you, definitely check it out. The seasonal flavors (which usually don't have chips!) are very good.
