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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
