This place offered hard ice cream and baked goods. I can't remember if there was seating inside, but it was tight. However, I was able to take a stroller inside. There was lots to choose from, making it a great place for your dessert.

Just going to "get an ice cream" puts a smile on most faces. Going to Graeter's for ice cream is the best ever. I've tried many ice cream shops in Cincinnati, and many other ice creams from Oregon to Florida. I have found none better than Graeter's. Some of their chocolate chips, whether in their traditional chocolate chip and vanilla... More

It's great ice cream with a fantastic variety of flavors. Oprah loves it, so it must be good, right? All of the chocolate chips are really pieces of broken up chocolate sheets or shell, and it's fabulous. Must try.

My Uber driver said this was a long standing ice cream shop with multiple locations. Their famous Black Raspberry with Chocolate did not disappoint! It was smooth ice cream with big chunks of chocolate. They have lots of other flavors but I would definitely go back for the raspberry!

Went on a couples group outing here. Even though the line was long(Saturday evening), it was quick service. Ice cream was great, prices decent.

This ice cream parlor has operated forever...what can be wrong? It's not innovative or trendy...just great ice cream at a fair price.

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.
