Hands down best ice cream with traditional and non traditional flavors .... Great cones too. Something for everyone here. Only complaint is the wait for it ... It's always a long line and you feel so rushed. Look at the menu before going so you know exactly what you want.

I wish they had a Graeter's Ice Cream in Nashville, TN. I love the black raspberry chip and my husband is crazy for the mocha chocolate chip.

First time. Peach ice cream was delicious. They sell some homemade candies as well. Nice, clean place plenty of seating. They have big ice cream frames that you can hold up to take a picture with. So cute, we laughed and had alot of fun! Go!

High-quality, small-batch ice cream. Many of their flavors contain a generous quantity of chips of their excellent chocolate as well.

This place features the local favorite ice cream. It is delicious. All of the ice creams are made on the premises and they are very good. The staff will let you sample any flavors until you decide where you want to indulge.

Graeter's was our 2nd stop on our tour of Ohio ice cream. We had visited Whit's and Jeni's as well, hoping to crown a victor for the best ice cream in Ohio. What we found was 3 very different ice creams that were all excellent. Each was good in it's own right and there was no clear winner. Graeter's served... More

Old fashioned ice cream parlor with a unique chocolate ganache style chip added to most flavors. The chocolate gobs don't have that hard waxy bite and the ice cream has a smooth creamy texture.
