I have a favorite ice cream that I don't find at every place. They have it here. I try to visit one of the locations every time I'm passing through Louisville.

I stopped in because it was next to the restaurant I had lunch at, a pleasant surprise because was at the wrong restaurant location and didn't know that Graeter's was there. So, I ate lunch, walked around a shop or two and the block then went for the ice cream. Like most ice cream shops it could use a little... More

I am a ice cream fan! If we are traveling and see a shop selling home made ice cream, we usually stop to sample their product. Frankly, besides great students and football teams, the Penn State creamery has, in my opinion, some of the best tasting ice cream going. We stopped at Graeter's while in Louisville, Ky. hoping that I... More

I've never had ice cream that curled my toes and awakened the senses like this did. Each flavor I tested was more incredible than the last and made it nearly impossible to choose. Run, don't walk to try something amazing!

Amazing ice cream. We found a way to go back a second time. Lots of really unique flavors. Not just any ice cream shop.

We were lucky enough to visit Louisville during the summer and have the limited-time peach ice cream. It was the creamiest and yummiest ice cream I've had. It was full of chunks of fresh peach. Delicious. Well worth the 15 minute wait in line.

There's no other ice cream shops in town that my wife would rather I take her! The ice cream is fantastic in this place! Good value for what you get. Great staff. Great ice cream.
