The title says it all!! I went here when I was about 8 or 9 with my Grandfather after an OSU game. I thought the ice cream was the best I had back then but going back almost 25 years later it is still the best ice cream ever!! Prices are reasonable and this place is always busy but they... More

I am absolutely spoiled now! Don't want to eat ice cream anywhere else now and we live in North Carolina where Graeter's is not. Will definitely go again when I am near one again.

Local ice cream shop. Many flavors including low and no sugar options. There are also seasonal flavors. The biggest problem when you go it trying to decide what flavor you want.

I have never had a bad time here! It gets crazy busy when spring and fall sports are in full swing but it's worth the wait. I love the seasonal flavors like pumpkin yum! Kids can't pass up ice cream with eyeballs on them or the jelly belly jellybean game thing (gross). Always seem to run into someone we know... More

They make their ice cream in small batches via the French pot method. They actually have to scour the world for replacement parts for their ice cream machines. All of the ice cream pints are hand packed. All of the flavors are premium and excellent. The price is very fair for the quality.

We have never had this type of ice cream before. Our friends in Columbus told us how proud they were of Graeter's ice cream. Now we know firsthand why. The Black Rasberry w/ chocolate ice cream is the best. We are glad to find a Kroger sells it in small containers.

This is a nice ice cream parlor featuring the famous Graeter's Ice Cream. Several tables, bathrooms, water fountain, and outside seating available. The family favorite is Black Raspberry Chip, but you can't go wrong on any flavor.

Thank SuSanSK
