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.

“OMG -- ice cream you scream!!!... Get it, is gooooood!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

This is some of the best ice cream. The flavors are not the crazy and weird but traditional and consistent. Mocha chip, double chocolate chip, toffee chip, black cherry chocolate chip, coconut chocolate chip and more regular flavors and then there are the summer or seasonal specials. Unbelievable. Tasty. Flavorful. Super sized chocolate chips. Great ingredients. Go there and taste it for yourself.

“Solid and Reliable Ice Cream Available Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Had a chocolate shake and really thought it was delish....

So ice cream quality excellent..

But why only four stars and not five.... well

in my book at least an ice cream shoppe should have personality and have a fun vibe
when you go into the store... this one has neither.... just kind of a standard downtown place off of a nice open area.... nothing to complain about but also nothing in the decor that
says --- folks "this place rocks" and consider me spoiled but that is what I want in my
ice cream shoppe... a rockin fun time and you do not get that here... you get a solid reliable
ice cream experience and that is fine..... but this place could be even better if there was some more fun to be had by all...

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

We visited the downtown location. It was a bit pricey but one of the best ice creams I have ever had. Had a peanut butter variety which was excellent. Definitely worth it.

“Good but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

We visited the downtown Cincinnati location. The staff and service was good. The ice cream is very rich. I would suggest small portion that's coming from someone who can eat a half of gallon at a time. I say that because it is so rich it's hard to finish. I believe it's a very pricey.

“Yummy Creamy Dreamy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We stopped by for some superb ice cream. We weren't let down either. The ice cream is so velvety and creamy, it's like eating frozen mousse. Fabulous!!!!
