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.

Graeter's is well known for their amazing ice cream and pastries. It is a destination for out of town visitors as well as one of Oprah's favorites -- for a reason. When you eat any of the chip flavored ice creams, you will be treated to mammoth sized pieces of chocolate. The fruity flavored ice creams are full of chunks... More

Small challenge- I am trying to review the shop in Mariemont and do not have the address- so I will just address that the ice cream is amazing. The store is spotless and friendly. However for ice cream this good I would enter a dark alley after dark. When in Cincinnati make sure to try a Graeter's.
