Fantastic ice cream! I got the buckeye ice cream in a cone and it was amazing! My boyfriend got strawberry cheesecake which was also great. It's located in a cute little square which we enjoyed walking around in. Well worth the visit!

Having lived in five metropolitan cities across the country, I have had lots of ice cream! Although Graeter's is above average, it's not the best I have had. Be prepared for sticker shock....Graeter's is very expensive.

This was very good ice cream. It’s rather pricey so get the specialty items. For instance, our son got blue cotton candy ice cream served in a small baseball helmet. They have bakery items for sale too.

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.
