Description: 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.

“Great Graeter's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Nothing greater than Graeter's for ice cream. A long standing home-town institution, this is the place to go for the famous black raspberry ice cream filled with chunks ( not chips!) of dark chocolate. Friendly staff is always willing to give you a taste of a flavour if you are undecided. Tables on one side allow you to sit comfortably while you enjoy a bowl or cone. Chocolates and other sweets can be purchased by the pound. My own favourite treat is toffee chip swimming in a pool of dark chocolate sauce. Totally awesome!

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is an ice cream place that has that old school ice cream feel. The ice cream is still hand dipped into their cartons and a great ice cream eating atmosphere.

This is a Cincy staple. All the flavors are great. My current fav is the Blackberry chip. Highly recommended.

“Ice cream so flavorful you don't need any toppings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Graeter's ice cream is so creamy and full of flavor that you should just order it in a cup or cone. I love trying the seasonal flavors. Although it is more expensive than other ice creams, the flavors are worth it. The only problem we've had is that one ice cream flavor had ice crystals, but this isn't typical of Graeter's ice cream.
