So I'm a chocolate or cookies and cream kinda girl. I was dead set on getting one of those options, when I was offered to sample Graeter's signature raspberry chocolate chip. Now I usually hate fruit-flavored ice cream, but their RCC gave me my entire life. I'll be back again and again before I leave Dayton.

What a delightful place with outstanding ice cream and great and helpful people behind the counter. There is a wide selection of flavors and the Blackberry Chocolate Chip is a MUST! The decor is typical of an ice cream shop and lends to the enjoyment.

Delicious. The staff is young kids but they are super friendly and have better customer service skills then some of the nicer restaurants I've visited. The ice cream is delightful and so many flavors to choose from. So far I've had the mint chocolate chip and the vanilla. I'll definitely be going back for more.

The ice cream was delicious! We were visiting my son at the University of Dayton and just happened to drive by Graeter's on the way to our hotel and decided to come back later. Boy was that a good decision. It is leaps and bounds better then the Ben and Jerrys we could have gotten right on campus or any... More

Probably not the first to use that pun, but I had to do it. Being from Indiana, I had never been to a Graeter's before. Their flavor selection was absolutely awesome, and their ice cream was top quality stuff. This is similar to a Ben and Jerry's, except the flavor selection is what puts Graeter's over Ben & Jerry's for... More

It is always a treat when we go to Graeter's to get some of their chip ice creams. The big chocolate chunks are so soft and chewable like a really good chocolate bar...not like the hard small chips you get in store bought ice creams. All of the chip flavors are delicious...black raspberry, coconut, peanut butter, salted caramel, mint, etc.... More

This was my first time to try Graeter's Ice Cream. YUM, I have been a Blue Bell fan for over 26 years and did not think it could be best, but I was wrong. Even their plain vanilla leaves you wanting more.

All of their ice creams are terrific but their peach tops them all followed by any if the chocolate kinds. I think we bought them out if peach so your out of luck on that until next year but you will be happy with any selection. The workers are super friendly and helpful. We ate ours "in" but, of course,... More

Really enjoyed the different flavors. Good portions for the price. I had the chocolate hazelnut. Tastes like Nutella.

I went into the Graeter's in Oakwood to purchase dry ice for shipping of a perishable food item. The store manager, Molly, and another employee went out of their way to provide information on dry ice and shipping. They then went above and beyond by helping me pack my product for shipping to help avoid freezing the items. Since I... More
