There's no better ice cream than Graeter's, where most flavors are generously mixed with their signature chocolate chunks! My favorite is the Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip but you can't go wrong with anything!

What can you say? The ice cream was awesome! So many flavors to choose from. The cookies and cream had whole Oreo cookies in it! But if you go to the one in Mariemont, you might meet a friendly cashier named Ruth. Tell her you want to try the strawberry that she brings home to her mom, and tell her... More

We visited a Graeter's stand at the Western and Southern open. I ordered a cone of the black raspberry chip. The chocolate chips were huge and soft. I wish I could get this ice cream more often.

I have been a Graeter's fan for many years and it was a real drag when I was diagnosed with Type ll diabetes. I figured my Graeter's days were over. However, they now have lower glycemic versions that are YUMMY. .. vanilla, butter pecan, and mint chocolate chip. MMMMMMM.... you can also find these at Kroger. It's weird, though, they... More

Cincinnati is so blessed to have wonderful ice cream manufacturers and without a doubt Graeter's is the best. Their ice cream shops have some of the best bake goods in the city too. Words would be inadequate, the only thing to do is TASTE. Friends all around the country, when they find out you are from Cincinnati ask about two... More

Recently took our son to Xavier University for his Freshman year. Just down the road from his dorm is a Graeter's location. The dreaded "Freshman 15" could easily become the "Freshman 30" if kids aren't careful! The Buckeye Chip and Coconut Chip ice creams may be the best ice cream I have had anywhere...just outstanding! Crazy delicious!

Cincy is known for Graeters Ice Cream, Skyline Chili and Montgomery Inn Ribs, so the reasons to continue to visit still exist today. If you want hunks of chocolate in your ice cream you cannot go wrong with anything that has the word 'chip' in it!! I like the Caramel Ice Cream as well. Now they call it Salted Caramel,... More

We had this ice cream at a tennis match we attended for a weekend. My husband loved it and we had a variety of their ice cream over the course of a few days. The salted caramel was my favorite. The mint chocolate chip very refreshing and their mocha shake also delicious. We were never disappointed.

Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter started handcrafting Graeter's Ice Cream in 1870. Today, generations later, we proudly remain a family owned and operated company. This is made possible thanks to you, our legion of loyal fans. For a century and a half, Graeter's has remained steadfast in our commitment to making ice cream not the easy way, but rather, the only way it should be: by hand, with real cream, sugar and eggs, in 2 gallon French Pots one batch at a time.
