“Takes you back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Very good ice cream. When you go into this place it is like you go back in time. They have ice cream, Sundays, sodas, shakes and awesome candy. Great hours too.

“Classic ice cream parlor with a classy product”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The best all around ice cream experience in Cincinnati. Graeters is great, but this is just a smidge better. This location is a blast out of the past.

“No nostalgia at the Mongomery location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I would recommend the original ocation on Madison Rd in Cincinnati for the atmosphere. The Montgomery location is just a storefrony in a strip mall - no soda fountain, etc. I judge an ice cream parlor on its hot fudge sundae and Aglamesis Brothers comes out very well indeed. The fudge thickens on on contact with the ice cream. The raspbery topping was excellent. I was a bit disappointed in the butter pecan ice cream itself. No distinct taste and not many pecans. Still, a very good dessert experience, if a bit pricey.

“Great ice cream and chocolates”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Don't leave without getting a few homemade chocolates too. The soda jerk was friendly and made a great banana split!

“Great Ice Cream in Historic Parlor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

This ice cream is every bit as good as Graeter's and is served in an old fashioned parlor in Oakley. Try some of their candies as well, they are delicious!
