Oprah loves their ice cream and she is even given in a way to the studio audience of hers. The history behind this ice cream is worth the search on YouTube alone

Graeter's ice cream is a Cincinnati staple. If you love ice cream, you will love Graeter's. Any of their chip flavors are over the top and the chips are not for the faint at heart. I've had 'chips' that were more like logs. Coconut chip is my favorite but you cannot go wrong with any Graeter's ice cream flavor!

Grater's is the best ice cream around! Most don't come close. My choice is always a nectar soda with vanilla ice creme.

Ice cream made in small batches the old way. Try any ice cream with chocolate chips that are huge and incredibly good.

There are a lot of good purveyors of ice cream in the world, but they are just "good". Very few makers of ice cream deserve the name "Graeter's"! You will find their products prepackaged in a variety of grocery stores. There is just something very refreshing about grabbing your Graeter's cold and fresh from one of their locations spread around... More

Quick friendly service and the ice cream is always rich and delicious. Can't go wrong. Fun location too right by the outdoor ice skating.

A wonderful combination of ice cream flavors, chocolate coated waffle cones and excellent service provides for a thoughtful and relaxing moment to top off any date night experience. A wide mix of ages and smiles translates to a very popular ice cream store!

Tasty ice cream - recommended on a visit to Cincinnati. Also a good selection of other cakes as well as sauces and chocolates you can buy - would make good gifts.

Even though the air is cool outside...Graeter's always manages to warm your heart. Jam packed on a Friday evening the energy of this location was welcoming and the service was prompt and accurate. I enjoyed the Chocolate Chocolate Chip. And it was delicious. How fortunate are we to have such a wonderful Cincinnati icon in this community.
