Great ice cream -- creamy Madagascar Vanilla Bean. great gelato, low-glycemic options as well. Line was long but moved fast. You could eat inside, but why would you at Fountain Square. Wonder if the nearby restaurants sell any desserts or everyone caps their evening with a visit to Graeter's. Hard to beat simple pleasures like great ice cream on a... More

The bourbon pecan ice cream was delicious!!! Wish I could ship it home! I also had the butter pecan which was lower in sugar and also very very good!

After an event at the Taft, decided on a scoop of ice cream. Graeter's was busy, but line moved quick. I actually got an Ice Cream soda. Yummy. We also brought some of their butter cookies. Who knew that did cookies well also?

Stopped here while visiting Fountain Square. Very friendly service and delicious ice cream. You can eat inside or take it out to enjoy the fountain.

Graeter's has the best Black Raspberry chip ice cream I have ever tasted. it is flavorful and not sickeningly sweet. Also not ot be missed is the Buckeye Blitz. I am so glad there is still a branch of the ice cream Parlor at the airport, so I could get one more fix before departing.

Awesome icecream - especially the double chocolate chip flavor!! It tastes out of the world with actual large chocolate chunks!! Stay away from the smoothie though...

I love a place that lets you taste before choosing. Their Sundaes are extra special because they put pecans on them! You can't go wrong with a hot fudge sundae. Try it with Peanut Butter or Buckeye ice cream like I did.

The restaurant is right at the side of Fountain Square. It is very popular and there is often a line. The line moves fast as they have a lot of servers. The ice cream was very good. It is open late.

Excellent ice cream at a reasonable price. I had a sundae with coconut chocolate chip ice cream and the chips were huge pieces of melt n your mouth chocolate and there was real shredded coconut in the smooth delicious ice cream. Topped it off with excellent caramel sauce and whipped cream at half of what the same treat would have... More

Never can get enough Graeter's Ice Cream. It is beyond excellent having one in downtown Loveland and having local kids was smiling faces greet you with such luscious ice cream. Always have to pick up one of the bakery goodies.
