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.

“Good, traditional ice cream”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Graeter's has good, typical ice cream. They don't have anything you won't find at a lot of other places but the ice cream is tasty. Service varies by location. Black raspberry chip is the best!

“Yummers”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

The chips in this ice cream are huge. I love chocolate chocolate chip. My husband loves their sorbets. My daughters fav is raspberry chocolate chip. A super Cincinnati treat.

“Heavenly Ice Cream”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

It's pretty tough to beat Graeter's heavenly ice cream. Rich, creamy with wonderful ingredients,
Graeter's deserves all the lavish praise it receives. My only wish is for a few more flavors
or expanding flavors we have heard about to Cincinnati.e.g. Bourbon Ball, apparently only
available in Louisville.
