Excellent ice cream, candy and service in Cincinnati. Forget about the "other ice cream that begins with a G" ...no comparison. Definitely a place for a quiet after dinner delight...try the basin street...chocolate and vanilla ice cream wallowing in marshmallow and hot fudge sauce.....the best. And don't forget to take home a pint of ice cream and a box of... More

We went to this place to check out the hype and it was amazing. Great place for anyone to stop by for ice cream. We didn't buy anything else but all the ice cream there was very good. Staff were very polite and made everyone welcome. My fav flavor is Mocha chocolate chip Ice Cream.

The joint is very nostalgic! The ambiance alone is what would bring me back. Some of the staff was not very friendly. It was very cold outside, and the place was pretty hoppin. I can't imagine how it would be on a hot summer day! I loved the soda fountain, and the dishes the ice cream is served in topped... More

I love having this place nearby. The ambiance of this little soda shop is so cute and old-fashioned, from the pink striped wallpaper and the little twisty heart iron chairs. It reminds me a little bit of Margie's in Chicago. Aglamesis Bros is a full-service shop that makes their own ice cream and candies. Either grab a cone or shake... More

I tried the mica chip and then ordered the chocolate chip ice cream cone and some chocolate bark to try. The ice cream and chocolates were good but I still think Graeters is better. I love the big chips in Graeter's chip flavors. Also, Esther Price chocolate candies are better than Aglamesis. Service was good.

We visit every time we come to my husbands hometown of Oakley. Best ice cream I have ever had in any state I've ever been to!

Great people great spot fabulous ice... More

This is one of the best ice creams I had in my life, and it is up there with Savannah's Leopold's, on a category by themselves. The ambience of the place and the wonderful old gentleman that runs it, Mr Aglamesis himself, add to the experience. (and for Johnny Cash fans like me: Rumour has it that the man himself... More

The debate will go on forever. But in my opinion Aglemesis ice cream is the best. Graeters is outstanding also. And we are so lucky to have 2 of the top 5 nationally rated Ice cream makers right here in Cincinnati. Walking into Aglemesis in Oakley takes you back to the days of the old fashioned fountain soda shops. The... More
