Walked in for a quick treat for my daughter and foind a little gem in Louisville! Decently priced and tasty ice cream. Daughter had strawberry and husband had cookie dough. The guy behind the counter even suggested to make my daughter's ice cream look like a princess since she needed her pink fix. So sweet and great experience. Clean and... More

The Graeter's we went to used to be the same ice cream shop I first went to, as a little girl in the late 80's. It's a great place. Really perfect ice cream + clean atmosphere.

While in town for work, I introduced New Yorkers and Californians to Graeter's and they LOVED it! Keep up the great work and fantastic service!

Came here with a friend and really enjoyed the experience. The shop looks and feels like a fifties ice cream parlor and the staff is so friendly! The ice cream quality is excellent and they are generous in their portions. Stop by, you won't regret it!

I love this place. Fast service, friendly staff, everything is clean and organized. Every time when I go to this side of Louisville I have to go to Graeter's. I have insulin resistance or pre diabetes and the best ice cream for diabetes people is that they sell here. Low fat and low sugar. It's homemade. The staff can help... More

Not kidding, the very best ice cream in the world. Try the blackberry chocolate chip. Oh..... They also sell coolers and dry ice so you can take some home, but now Krogers stocks it.

My favorite ice cream in Louisville is Graeter's! I love anything they have that has their chocolate chip pieces in it. I would highly recommend Graeter's. There's no need to get sundaes or shakes there, their ice cream is delicious without adding anything else to it! My favorite is mint chip.

This was our first time here and we really liked it. The service could use some improvement but the ice cream made up for it. The chocolate chips are a lovely addition and we can wait to try it again.

We sometimes visit Graeter's after eating at Havana Rumba. The ice cream is always good and served with a smile. One worker,Jackson, stands out. He prepares your treat with style and flair. It's clear that he takes pride in his work.

Living in Florida, I can only get Graeter's from the freezer case of my Publix supermarket. While it's okay, it's not fresh-scooped Graeter's. While visiting Louisville, my husband and I stopped in to get some fresh. He's never had it fresh and while he has said that mine was "good" when he tasted it, he's a purist and likes plain... More
