“Decades of Prefection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This is a local must stop place if you want some of the best ice cream anywhere! Everything is fresh and made locally. The store is Oakley is as if you stepped back into time with all the marble and décor.

“How have I not written a review for this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is my favorite ice cream in the world! I live in St. Louis, but LOVE this ice cream, and must have it every time that I'm in Cincinnati! Best flavor for me is dutch holland chocolate, and I love it in an extra sincere soda. This last visit was incredible, they looked packed but service is still fast. Love that the Oakley location is 100 years old this year! It's not 100 years old for nothing! Also, bought a number of chocolates to take back home! Opera creams and almond bark are a must!

“Nostalgia is not worth the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

No doubt the old soda fountain is cool and there all kinds of sweet ice cream treats available but the experience is over-priced. I further realize that this is the equivalent of a micro-brewery with small runs and relatively high expenses. It's just that with Graeters and United Daity Farmers both also in the Cincinnati market there are better values.

“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.
