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.

“Stop and Taste the Ice Cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

For those of you who like Ice Cream, I encourage stop while in Cincinnati and try Graeter's. I wide selection of just about any flavor you can imagine. For those with more traditional taste, specifically Chocolate, Graeter's Chocolate Ice Cream will not disappoint. Be prepared to order a second dish or take a quart home to enjoy at your leisure. The restaurant is clean, a little "old fashioned" with a staff that truly gets what Customer Service means. A good time and good taste for us Chocolate lover's, individually or to share with family and friends.

“Ice Cram”

Have had ice cream at Graeter's on many occasions and it is delicious! I have also had some of their pastries and they are also very good. Would recommend Graeter's highly.

“Great Ice Cream right on the Plaza.”

We were staying at the Hilton and Graeter's was just across the plaza. Quick service and the quality was off the chart!

“World's Best Ice Cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Graeter's Ice Cream is one of the reasons I keep going back to Cincinnati. I've been many places and have sampled all sorts of ice cream. Graeters is in a class by itself. No one has chip flavors like Graeters. The raspberry chip has no equal. Forget your Maggie Moos and Cold Stone. They don't even come close.

“Best ice cream in Cincinnati, by far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip is my favorite flavor, but I've never had a flavor I have not loved. I was introduced to Graeter's through the Montgomery Inn. I was at a function at the Montgomery Inn and they served the Black Raspberry. I wanted to know where it came from. Ever since I've gone to one of their restaurants. There is one near the Kenwood Mall, and one Mason/Montgomery road. The also make great milkshakes but I think you don't want to have a milkshake if you can have the great ice cream instead.
