Tried Graeters Ice Cream because it was recommended. We were told to try the Black Berry Chip. It was outstanding, creamy, deep purple and packed with flavor. We also tried the Oregon Strawberry which we didn't care for as it seemed tasteless. We are used to having a California award winning Thrifty Ice Cream that can mainly be purchased at... More

While visiting Cincinnati for a convention we stumbled upon Graeter's. We were intrigued by the long line waiting to be served. It was worth the wait! Ice cream flavor are unique and delicious. Especially like the coconut! Prices were fair. They also have a selection of cookies , chocolates and sweets. A must for stop for anyone in Cincinnati!

Excellent ice cream flavors and bakery selection. Also they have candy too. Wish I lived around here to visit once a week! Place your order and sit at tables inside or out. Someone stopped by with dog and got treat for their dog too. Sundaes, floats, banana splits and unique flavors along with normal ones.

If you have never had it you don't know what you are missing. From breakfast treats to cookies to candy to Ice cream. It is always great and is made in small batches and hand dipped. Would love to see it world wide for all to enjoy! Make this stop if you get the chance

My wife and I were visiting my brothers family, and they made a point of taking us here. Glad they did. I had the tower which is chocolate raspberry on brownie with hot fudge on top sundae. My wife had chocolate chip coconut cone. She let me try. Simply delicious. Both were delicious. Next time we visit we will definitely... More

There's no comparison to Graeters ice cream. Hand crafted, smooth, delicious... The black raspberry chocolate chip ice cream is amazing both for its taste and huge chunks of chocolate within. I must say though, some people complain that the chunks of chocolate are too big. :-) It's never been a problem for me, that's for sure.

I always enjoy a stop at Graeter's: their ice cream is marvelous, the toppings they offer are spectacular, and their malts are to die for. Had a great chocolate malt made with coffee ice cream and extra malt -- heaven in a cup with a straw! Highly recommend!

At a recent stop I had a chocolate raspberry chip ice cream cone. Heard it was everyone's favorite. While the amounts of chocolate was over done and the chips were just large pieces. The ice cream had a great flavor but the consistency was too rich. Almost like eating a stick of butter.

You can't get a meal, unless it's breakfast of coffeee & rolls. You want to go to Graeters for the ICE CREAM. Locally made with wonderful ingredients. There are a number of location in Cincinnati where you can get it, but only a couple in Northern Kentucky. It doesn't get too trendy with flavors from the herb patch. But, anything... More
