Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed at a hotel off this exit and I was so excited to see a Graeter's! I had this ice cream for the first time years ago in Cincinnati. It's the bomb! I invited a friend that was also traveling and staying in the...area to join me. We both enjoyed the ice cream. Quick service. Lots of seating. I'll be back next year! Black Raspberry is my favorite!More

I am a fan of Graeter's Ice Cream and have stopped at this location a number of times while traveling on I-75. The ice cream is fantastic. I left today with only having a sample. The counter staff was just plain rude in the way...they handled their Covid-19 precautions. You can enforce rules in a polite way or you can order the customers around like deck hands. This is the way I was treated today and I just turned and walked out. I was first told to go to station 4 to be waited on. I complied and I asked if they were still giving samples and requested one of the special flavor. I was abruptly told that I needed to request all of my samples at the same time - I only wanted that one. I was then told I would have to move to station 3 to be given my sample (there was no line and no one else was waiting). I was handed the sample and of course took one side of my mask loose to taste. After thinking about it a minute I had decided that I would have my long time favorite vanilla with chocolate chip. I said "I will just" and at that point I was interrupted by the rude young woman behind the counter and told "you need to put THAT back on before you speak to me"!!!!! I didn't put my mask back on because I was about to eat more ice cream but I guess that isn't a valid excuse. Not - "don't forget to put you mask back on" or "remember about your mask" or something a bit nicer to a paying customer - just ordered like a deck hand. So I threw away my sample spoon and the plastic lid it was on and left - never to return to that location again. I will just go buy some at the grocery store next time (cheaper anyway) and not have to suffer the indignity of a rude clerk! Oh - and she was behind the counter and more than 6 feet from me when I was chastised.More

This nice little ice cream shop offers scoops, cones and other ice cream treats. They will even pack pints in dry ice for travel. The ice cream was good and there were a lot of flavors to choose from.

Graeter's ice cream is amazing. Creamy, delicious flavors, not too sweet - it's just perfect, and it's the best you will find anywhere. One reviewer said that being from Wisconsin, they'd had better, but I'd like to know where, since I lived in Wisconsin for...16 years and I never had ice cream as good as Graeter's. The store is very clean and inviting, and the staff are friendly and efficient. My favorite flavor is key lime pie. The ice cream cakes are awesome too - expensive, but totally worth it!More

I’ve waited over six months for the strawberry chocolate chip to come back! It is so good! The strawberry ice cream is good and the chocolate chunks are amazing! There is no better flavor than this!! Get it while you can!

Stopped here as it was near our hotel. They had a good selection of ice cream flavors. I had Butter Pecan and my husband ordered Chocolate Chip. Both were good. We were surprised that the ice cream actually comes from Cincinnati and not locally made.

No matter where I travel & what chocolate chip ice cream I try, Graeter's beats them all everytime. The only thing I've had better was a plain dark chocolate gelato at a specific place in Italy. But anything with a chocolate chip in it -...this is IT!! I always try a sample of something else when I go in, thinking I will get something else, but it never sticks. I always go back to the Double Chocolate Chip everytime. The chunks of chocolate are firm but soft/chewy so they aren't so hard you can't eat like some others. Also they are large compared to others as well. What's the point of having chips if you can't tell they are even there - well Graeter's gets it right.More

Read online that this place had the best ice cream not only in Lexington but in America. I couldn't resist. I don't know if it was the best ever but it was definitely good. My new diet starts today!

Stopped in here with my Daughter-in-Law and Granddaughter. Store looked clean and had seating inside and out. We each got something different, mine was raspberry sorbet. It was full of flavor and refreshing. Staff was helpful and friendly. Restrooms clean. Enjoy!
