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.

Graeter's has the best ice cream anywhere. They make ice cream the old fashion way with cream, sugar, milk-fat, etc so don't eat here if you're on a diet. And their chocolate chips are NOT the little flakes but big chunks of chocolate. Highly recommend Graeter's and you won't be sorry.

While not quite a restaurant, it is a Cincinnati tradition. The best ice cream around says Oprah, and I haven't met anyone who disagrees.

This is by far the best ice cream I have ever tasted!! I had the brownie sundae, and it did not disappoint. I will definitely be back for a future visit.

I am a Cincinnati native and If you travel to Cincinnati and don't eat at Grater's you are missing the whole Cincinnati experience! They have the creamiest, most delicious ice cream ever. It is quiet expensive, but it worth every spoonful. The best flavors are strawberry and of course, black raspberry chip!
