Amazing flavors. Super friendly staff! They will let you try as many flavors as you'd like. The worker kept giving us samples upon samples. Hands down this was the best ice cream I have ever had. I cannot wait to go back!!!

Although the portions are small and the names quirky and hard to remember, the ice cream is awesome at Jenis. $30 for a family of 6 is surprising at first. After tasting the ice cream you're less worried about the cost.

This is totally different ice cream than Graeters so I shouldn't compare. Jeni's has unique flavors that are totally awesome! Buttered popcorn, lavender and goat cheese with berries were the ones I had and all were great! If you like different, Jeni's is the spot. And the young employees were very knowledgeable about the ice cream and enthusiastic to let... More

I love that they are really outside of the box when it comes to ice cream flavors. It helps that they let you try whichever one you want to help with the decision since most of the flavors aren't your mainstream flavors. The ice cream was really good and since we don't live in Columbus we went two days in... More

Visited a couple of Jeni's while in Columbus and was spoils for choice. The salted caramel was good but the watermelon and buttermilk was to die for, pink, sweet and slightly tangy. A must if you're in their city.

Excellent and creative ice cream. Staff are well trained and friendly. Cheerily provide samples as one agonizes over which flavors to select. Jeni and team have given back to the community; it feels good to support them. Ice cream is not inexpensive, but it is a delectable treat, and far cheaper and better than most restaurant desserts!

Maybe I chose the wrong flavor but I had better expectations! Too artificial tasting. Otherwise service was good.

Open since March 2006, the shop is in a neighborhood immediately northwest of downtown Columbus populated by families, couples, children, and teenagers walking and biking to do errands, shopping in independently-owned-and-operated shops, and hanging out in lively spots like Stauf's Coffee Roaster's and Spagio. Home of the annual summer Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic, the renovated, single-screen Grandview Theatre, and the sidewalk Art Hop (last Saturday of every month), Grandview and its main artery, Grandview Avenue, is full of people just taking it all in.
