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

This purchase was for a birthday cake for my grandson. If you haven't had a cake from Graeter's, you need to try one. The icing is delicious.

Absolutely the best ice cream!!!! I always try to stop at ANY of the locations when I'm up this way. My wife and I always get the black raspberry chocolate chip and we have NEVER been anything other than 110% happy.

Great environment for families and to get the freshest and best ice cream you've ever had. It has that old ice cream parlor feel, including a drive up window.

Graeter's is ... well ... Great! We went to the downtown location years ago, but this time we stopped at the Grand Avenue location. A little bit off the beaten track, but clean and immaculate, and the perfect way to end the day. The only thing better - maybe - is the Sicilian gelato we had in Rome two years... More
