I absolutely LOVEEE ice cream but I don't necessarily like ice cream with chocolate chips, they had a creation - bourbon pecan - which has chocolate chips in it, he had me taste it, I was IN LOVE!!!!! There was a long line but they move very fast but still give great customer service so don't let a long line... More

Popular ice cream bar, good ice cream, good variety of flavors. On nice days there is a queue but it moves well as plenty of staff. Friendly and correct.

You will not taste better Ice Cream anywhere. The Mint Chocolate Chip has chocolate candy bars in it. The creamiest ice cream with the best flavors to be enjoyed.

Enjoyed my first ever trip to Cincinnati - and everyone told us to visit Graeter's. And so we did! Loved the ice cream and friendly staff. Raspberry chocolate chunk is the local favorite, but I went with the seasonal Key Lime Pie and enjoyed every bite!

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.
