My husband and I just got home from Oktoberfest. The BEST thing we ate there was Graeter's Ice Cream. Pros: Delicious Cons: Calories, LOL


Graeters has this reputation that can't be shaken; no pun intended. But it is no better than UDF - United Dairy Farmers to these taste buds. Pros: Ice Cream does taste good! P...

Too expensive if you want more than 2 oz. Watery Milkshakes! 12/1/2009

I understand that they use the 'french pot' method of making ice cream. But as a smoker, an evil one, my tongue can't tell the difference between Graeters and UDF and any brand except the bottom of the barrell. Pros: Not many locations Cons: Way too expensive more

Yum! 9/20/2009

My husband and I just got home from Oktoberfest. The BEST thing we ate there was Graeter's Ice Cream. Pros: Delicious Cons: Calories, LOL more

Over Rated! Over Priced! A Milk Shake is thin as 2% Milk 5/2/2009

Graeters has this reputation that can't be shaken; no pun intended. But it is no better than UDF - United Dairy Farmers to these taste buds. Pros: Ice Cream does taste good! Plenty of Flavors Cons: Cost, Availibility, Thin Shakes and Malts! more

Oprah's favorite 4/21/2008

Graeter's Ice Cream is the most delicious ice cream ever. It's Oprah's favorite. If you want good service DON'T go to the one at Kings Island or the Zoo. Has good hours and always has seats. It is way above your local ice cream shop! If you are not from Cincinnati you must go here!! Pros: Taste Good. Hours are decent. Always a place to sit. Puts you in a good mood. Cons: Some locations do not have a lot of parking. more

WE miss Graeters!!! Have been away for 26 years...still they are the Hallmark /standard bearer of my fave IC-worked on the avenue 1979...and 4/14/2008

I have only home-made ice cream to compare. The best! is yours with so many flavors and ingredients to offer flavors other than ordinary. more

BESTTTT ice cream! 2/21/2008

Awesome creamy ice cream...the best more

Good Ice cream? Maybe. Bad service... for sure! 7/15/2007

We went to Graeter's in Kings Island. They made a mistake in our order and were not willing to correct it. The staff was lousy and not interested in helping the customer. Eventually only the manager was able to help us and offered some apologies. Terrible experience. Not everything is in the ice cream and you should know it. more

Best ice cream in the World! 8/10/2006

I am really questioning how CitySearch does it's ratings after not even seeing Graeter's Ice Cream in the top 10 list for Cincinnati!. Graeter's is often called the best ice cream in the world by many critics and for good reason. They're signature Black Rasberry Chip ice cream is out of this world, containing soft chocolate pieces ranging from small, to gigantic pieces of chocolate that would fill your entire mouth! This is because Graeter's uses a liquid chocolate and it hardens and breaks into random sized pieces as it mixes with the ice cream. Do yourself and a favor and try the best ice cream you will ever have! Pros: Best ice cream in the World Cons: A little more pricey than your average ice cream place more

One of the best in the world 5/19/2004

I've lived and traveled all over the world and without any doubt I can honestly say that Graters Ice Cream is among the best anywhere. From Italian Ices, to French concoctions, Graters competes with some of the world's richest and delicious ice creams. I confess to having had Graters Double Chocolate Chip shipped to me on dry ice while I lived in Hawaii. It was my birthday. One of my favorite childhood passtimes was to compete with my sisters to see who had the largest chocolate chip. We've even been known to photograph the evidence and ship it around the world. Cincinnati is spoiled! Pros: Rich, creamy, Cons: , butt and hip growth more

Greaters Fan! 5/12/2004

Greater's Ice Cream is honestly the best Ice Cream I have ever tasted! Not only is it creamy and smooth, but the chocolate chips are huge! My favorite flavor is Mint Chocolate chip. Anyone who visits Cincinnati must try this ice cream! Pros: Good Parking, great value, great service more

Graeters 5/17/2003

I love Graeter's icecream. Its the best icectream ever. My favorite flavor is rasperry choc. chip. It has great service and food. Best icecream in years. Pros: inexpensive, wonderful food, not too crowded more

Nothing Graeter! 1/29/2003

What is there to say about the best ice cream in the United States? Graeter's is the richest, creamiest, and best tasting ice cream out there. I enjoy ordering it for family members who live out of town to give them a special taste of home. A White Tower sounds great right now, but my favorite will always be a hot fudge sundae made with chocolate chip ice cream (wish they still had the silver ice cream cups when I used to share them with Mom). Try Graeter's when you're in Cincy; you'll be hooked! Pros: Flavor, Quality more

I Scream for this Ice Cream 9/12/2002

THis is truly the best icecream that I have ever had, and I have had many kinds in my life. The quality is always consistent, the flavor is always great, and all flavors are tasty. They also have the best ice cream sandwich, ice cream between two great cookies. If only they would find a way to lose weight by eating ice cream!!!!!!! Pros: great taste, great atmosphere, good prices more

Best Ice Cream 8/26/2002

For the very best ice cream experience, Greaters is tops! We ship Greater's to all our family members in other cities because they can't get it there. Our family are Dairy farmers and they know good cream! Also, Greater's chocolate is awesome! And the coffee cakes!!!! They are to die for. ... Pros: Best Treats, Several Locations, Inexpensive Cons: Crowded more

The only Handmade Ice Cream In The U.S 8/16/2002
