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 ice cream, must do in Cincinnati”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We went to the downtown Cincinnati location. It has limited seating and we had to wait for a table because there was a crowd there, but it was worth it. Best ice cream ever. Get something with chocolate chips, great big chunks of chocolate in creamy ice cream.

“Best Ice Cream”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

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.

“Yum!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

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.

“The Best”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

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.
