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.

“Simply Amazing...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Their ice cream is awesome! We tried the one with coconut, chocolate, and almonds. It was delicious. The prices are reasonable, the staff is fast and friendly and the ice cream is awesome! What more could you ask for?? They also have a bakery and chocolates but we did not try those. It is definitely worth a visit!

“Delicious Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

I love to try local places, but Graeter's is now sold in grocery stores in my hometown. But, when in Cincinnati, it's a must try.

The young, helpful staff told me blackberry chip is the most popular flavor, so I ordered one scoop.
They did not steer me wrong. The ice cream was creamy and delicious, but the chocolate chips were the star. HUGE pieces of high quality chocolate made the ice cream worth every bite.

“Should be locked away for ice cream sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

I got an ice cream sandwich from this place at the airport. It is no ordinary ICSandwich. Chocolate chip COOKIES with double chocolate chip ice cream in the middle and rolled in chocolate sprinkles. Talk about your comfort food. My eyes rolled back in to my head with the first bite. HUGE chunks of chocolate hidden in there. The best part? My 8 year old had no interest in it because it wasn't mainstream. LOVED IT! The girl at the counter was friendly and knowledgeable.

“Great ice cream of course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Only complaint is that in Clifton , they severely reduced their selection of loose candies. Last night the server had to dig through boxes to find my selection of some caramels and molasses chips.
