“Great ice cream, but costly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

You pay for the frshness. If you're an ice cream fanatic, this is the place to go. But beware, you pay the same for a scoop or two of Graeter's as you do for an entire "brick" of Kroger's brand!

“Don't miss this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This place knows how to make ice cream. An absolute velvet texture and big flavor in every bite. I had the signature Black Cherry with dark chocolate chunks and my wife had the chocolate chocolate chip. We're sorry we waited for the last day to try it, I'd have gone back again.

“Not The Best, But Definitely Worthy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I've long heard raves for Graeter's but recently had my first opportunity to put them to the test. I was informed that I had to have the black raspberry chip. Hands down the best chocolate chips I've ever had in ice cream. Some of the pieces were so large, I'd even hesitated to call them "chips". Best of all, they weren't waxy and they actually tasted like chocolate (something that can't be said of most chips in ice cream). The ice cream itself was creamy and flavorful. Not the best I've ever had, but definitely worthy of the praise it gets. If you're craving ice cream while in Cincinnati, this is the place to go.

“A must stop while in Cincinnati”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

My wife grew up in Cincinnati and always talked about Graeter's. I did not understand her obsession until we went. Make sure to get chocolate chips in whatever flavor you get. I don't know how they get them to stay to soft and chewy. But I can no longer eat chocolate chips in my ice-cream from any place other than Graeter's.

The one on Fountain Square is nice in the summer, especially on Sunday when they play movies in the square.
