Unique chocolate chips, that are actually soft/chewy, in some flavors. 2 dips will cost you $6 so don't take your whole family! This is a cultural icon, so go check it out. Seasonal varieties are good (can we say PUMPKIN!). Might be wiser to buy a pint for $5.49 and share.

We visited Graeter's after dinner and found their ice cream delicious. The selection of flavors were great and the ice cream was of great quality.

Graeter's is a great place to walk to for ice cream, the take home selection is easy to access and even when they're busy the service is fast. The only issue I have is all the retail cluttering up the center of the facility, it makes it difficult to queue up for service and is very distracting if you have... More

This is such an amazing ice cream shop. The ice cream is homemade and of high quality. I still love basic vanilla. The service is good. Sometimes they have little extras such as fudge. It is worth a stop.

As connoisseurs of the frozen treat types, we were excited to spot this place. After a great dining experience nearby, this was a perfect addition. Traveling about middle America, we'd not seen a ICE CREAM "Parlor" since moving from "LuVuL" long ago. I thought they had disappeared. It's a clean, comfortable, well decorated, & staffed with a very good staff... More

Incredibly tasty ice cream. Long lines, which is a great thing to show for, but also they get you through the lines quickly.

This is actually a review of the store located at 13817 English Villa Drive in Louisville, which is not among those listed in TripAdvisor. Nevertheless, the menu is the same in all Graeter's Ice Cream restaurants, so comments apply to all of their ice cream flavors - which are the best. My favorite is peach, but that is a seasonal...

I've been hooked for years. Used to go to the Graeter's on Hart in Lexington. Best ice cream I have ever had. Been all over the world and still go to Graeter's anytime it's nearby. The Breckenridge shop is always just busy enough and has a great neighborhood feel to it. Staff is alays friendly and always get my "to... More
