One of the highlights of going to Cincinnati is eating Graeter's ice cream. Love chocolate raspberry. You can now buy it locally at some Kroger stores. Try it out you won't be sorry.

I have been to other cities that claim their ice cream is the best, and I have yet to find anyone as good as Graeters-Oprah even endorsed the ice cream on her show, it's that good! If you order a chip ice cream, the "chips" are really huge chunks of chocolate. I only... More

Nice late evening dessert spot. Try the bourbon ice cream - made with real Makers Mark bourbon! Nice tables with extra room in the rear. Lots of boxed sweets to take home as gifts.

If there's one business you want to avoid if you are trying to lose weight this may be it. On the other hand, if you want a great milkshake it can't be beat. I visited the location at Fountain Square on several occasions and come away very pleased but a pound or heavier. The place is filled with sweets of... More

Description
Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter started handcrafting Graeter's Ice Cream in 1870. Today, generations later, we proudly remain a family owned and operated company. This is made possible thanks to you, our legion of loyal fans. For a century and a half, Graeter's has remained steadfast in our commitment to making ice cream not the easy way, but rather, the only way it should be: by hand, with real cream, sugar and eggs, in 2 gallon French Pots one batch at a time.
