I understand that they use the 'french pot' method of making ice cream. But as a smoker, an evil one, my tongue can't tell the difference between Graeters and UDF and any brand except the bottom of the barrell.
However, my wallet can for sure tell the difference. And regardles of your taste buds, the price will prevent it from growing beyond a local brand.
I did get a milk shake at their Crescent Springs location, and it blew me away. It was no more than 8 oz and as thin as milk (whole).
I prefer to get a UDF shake, or one with lots of milk fat in the ice cream. There is a shop that has such a shake on 11th St. in Newport. (12th St. in Covington becomes 11th St. in newport after you cross the bridge spanning the Licking river.) Then drive 3 or 4 blocks, and this store is on the left, at a corner. You can't miss it!
Another place for extra rich ice Cream is in Bellview, it is well advertised.

Graeters has this reputation that can't be shaken; no pun intended. But it is no better than UDF - United Dairy Farmers to these taste buds.
And once more, I went through the drive through and bought a Chocolate Shake, the only size they had, about 14 oz. for around $4.00 and I could not believe it has the consistency of Milk, or Water. What a rip-off...

Graeter's Ice Cream is the most delicious ice cream ever. It's Oprah's favorite. If you want good service DON'T go to the one at Kings Island or the Zoo. Has good hours and always has seats. It is way above your local ice cream shop! If you are not from Cincinnati you must go here!!

We went to Graeter's in Kings Island. They made a mistake in our order and were not willing to correct it. The staff was lousy and not interested in helping the customer. Eventually only the manager was able to help us and offered some apologies. Terrible experience. Not everything is in the ice cream and you should know it.

I am really questioning how CitySearch does it's ratings after not even seeing Graeter's Ice Cream in the top 10 list for Cincinnati!. Graeter's is often called the best ice cream in the world by many critics and for good reason. They're signature Black Rasberry Chip ice cream is out of this world, containing soft chocolate pieces ranging from small, to gigantic pieces of chocolate that would fill your entire mouth! This is because Graeter's uses a liquid chocolate and it hardens and breaks into random sized pieces as it mixes with the ice cream. Do yourself and a favor and try the best ice cream you will ever have!

I've lived and traveled all over the world and without any doubt I can honestly say that Graters Ice Cream is among the best anywhere. From Italian Ices, to French concoctions, Graters competes with some of the world's richest and delicious ice creams. I confess to having had Graters Double Chocolate Chip shipped to me on dry ice while I lived in Hawaii. It was my birthday. One of my favorite childhood passtimes was to compete with my sisters to see who had the largest chocolate chip. We've even been known to photograph the evidence and ship it around the world. Cincinnati is spoiled!

Greater's Ice Cream is honestly the best Ice Cream I have ever tasted! Not only is it creamy and smooth, but the chocolate chips are huge! My favorite flavor is Mint Chocolate chip. Anyone who visits Cincinnati must try this ice cream!

What is there to say about the best ice cream in the United States? Graeter's is the richest, creamiest, and best tasting ice cream out there. I enjoy ordering it for family members who live out of town to give them a special taste of home. A White Tower sounds great right now, but my favorite will always be a hot fudge sundae made with chocolate chip ice cream (wish they still had the silver ice cream cups when I used to share them with Mom). Try Graeter's when you're in Cincy; you'll be hooked!

THis is truly the best icecream that I have ever had, and I have had many kinds in my life.
The quality is always consistent, the flavor is always great, and all flavors are tasty.
They also have the best ice cream sandwich, ice cream between two great cookies.
If only they would find a way to lose weight by eating ice cream!!!!!!!

For the very best ice cream experience, Greaters is tops! We ship Greater's to all our family members in other cities because they can't get it there. Our family are Dairy farmers and they know good cream! Also, Greater's chocolate is awesome! And the coffee cakes!!!! They are to die for. ...
