My first visit to Graeter's did not disappoint. I tried the two-scoop with coffee and butter pecan. Very good. Cafe style seating inside and some outdoor seating as well. Definitely recommend!

Old time ice cream shop that features great ice cream. A local favorite so you may find a line of people...but worth the wait,

We like Graeter's. Well, my wife seems to like all ice cream products, and we frequent this location often. Great service and very clean. She: cup of watermelon sorbet. He: cup of double chocolate chip. We recommend both.

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!
