I always have ice cream when I visit Ohio. Graeter's never fails to offer not only their standard and signature flavors but seasonal ones also. My double scoop of summer contained peach and strawberry. Both wrte full of creamy fruit flavor. The peach was especially good because of the chunks of fruit. Even with the temperatures soaring, my Graeter's double... More

The taste and quality of Graeter's ice cream are unbeatable and I've tested a number of places that claim to be the best. Customer service is great as they always greet you with a smile and show a strong interest in you as a customer. Always a pleasant experience no matter the time of day or weather. Everyone needs to... More

Graeter's Ice Cream is just yummy. Black raspberry chip is my favorite and also rated top 4 in the country. We eat in, take out. Service is always good.

Perfectly situated next to the best barbeque joint in Ohio, Graeter' serves up awesome ice cream. Many of their flavors have 'chocolate chips.' This visit I encountered a chocolate chip the size of a golf ball. Surprise! They also have good sorbets and low glycerin choices.

I come in and ask for a banana milk shake like I have many times before. The first one gets dumped in the sink because of a mishap, things happen. I get the shake and it has no banana in it. I asked "where is the banana"? I was told that they can't put banana in it. We can put... More

Graeter's ice cream is awesome. It's a very creamy style with great flavors. There chocolate chunk varieties are great for chocolate lovers since the chucks are huge. I love the black raspberry chocolate chunk. It is definitely a most try!

Centerville is a charming little town, and right on the crossroads in the middle of town is a Graeter's ice cream parlor. Great ambience, good range of flavors and helpful, friendly staff. This was my first visit and, in fact, the first time I had tasted the famous Graeter's ice cream. I will be back.

We have heard about Graeter's Ice Cream for quite some time. Have never had an opportunity to give it a try until we stayed overnight in the Dayton area. I do have a feeling that everyone has a favorite ice cream from their childhood which is imprinted on our taste buds. That childhood favorite is difficult to out do. We... More

So much fun ordering and lots of space to sit down. Knowledgeable and patient staff. So friendly and yes, the ice cream and malted milk shakes were awesome. I'm giving it 5 stars because it was super clean, had history, kiddie flavours and sophisticated flavours.

Thank AwesomeIma
