The ice cream is ok nothing special, sorry to let you folks from Cincy down. I have had much better, if you ever get to New Brunswick there is a place in St Martin called Mccabes that will blow this place out of the water.

Graeter's is unparalleled. A Cincinnati institution, there is nothing like it anywhere. Coconut chip, with HUGE rocks of delicious dark chocolate, satisfies any craving you could possible have.

If you are looking for a unique flavor and taste...this is the place, it's been this way since I was a small child. My family loves eating here. You'll visit this place over and over to enjoy this dessert.
