“Outstanding ice cream!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

If the line was any initial indication, then this place must have great ice cream. A line at least 100 deep greeted us on the Saturday night we were there. Along with another 100 or so in and around the restaurant enjoying their ice cream. The line moves quickly, so the wait wasn't bad. The ice cream was outstanding - try it with a pretzel cone for a sweet and savory treat.

“Yep - Best Ice Cream in the USA”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

I know my ice cream. Home made, Ben & Jerry's, Oscars, Gilles and Kopps (Wisconsin). But nobody compares to the creamy, rich flavors in Cincinnati. I visited over the July 4th weekend and had Coconut Choc. Chip and Black Raspberry Choc. Chip. Amazing!
Its pricey - not for the faint of heart - but it is good.

“Typical Graeter”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Good ice cream with lots of selection. Limited other bakery and ice cream cakes.

One reason I came here was for the wifi. But it does not work.

The system show a guest connection but it asks for a password. None of the staff even knew it existed. Hummmmm

They directed me to the manager who was not in

“Good premium ice cream after a long hot day in the sun”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

If you're familiar with premium ice cream shops like Mitchells you pretty much get the idea. The shop serves many different concoctions and provides some local entertainment as well. I had 2 scoops of double fudge in a waffle cone, and it was highly satisfactory, though I don't think it was better than the Edy's bought in a grocery store. Still worth a trip if you happen to be in the area.

“Fantastic Ice Cream”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Fantastic ice cream. Love the Double Chocolate Chip! They have a wide selection. The line can be long when you walk in but it moves really fast and is worth the wait, gives you a chance to decide. They are more than happy to provide free samples. The bakery items are also top notch.
