A family group of 11 stopped by here after dinner. Ice cream was very good. The staff was very informative and helpful. Also, they allowed us to use the enclosed room in the back. That allowed us to have a quiet get together. Thanks.

This place has really great ice cream. I love the crown cheese and the strawberry shortcake. Get 2 scoops. First scoop is 3.25. Second is 1.25. Scoops are a little on the small side.

The ice cream is the best in town. Always looks clean and staff is friendly. Love it. They have some pretty good candy also.

Walking is a great way to exercise and if Graeter's is on the way why not stop for a break. Ice cream priced on the high side is still a wonderful, taste treat. I even love plain vanilla.

What a delightful place with outstanding ice cream and great and helpful people behind the counter. There is a wide selection of flavors and the Blackberry Chocolate Chip is a MUST! The decor is typical of an ice cream shop and lends to the enjoyment.

Delicious. The staff is young kids but they are super friendly and have better customer service skills then some of the nicer restaurants I've visited. The ice cream is delightful and so many flavors to choose from. So far I've had the mint chocolate chip...More

The ice cream was delicious! We were visiting my son at the University of Dayton and just happened to drive by Graeter's on the way to our hotel and decided to come back later. Boy was that a good decision. It is leaps and bounds...More

Probably not the first to use that pun, but I had to do it. Being from Indiana, I had never been to a Graeter's before. Their flavor selection was absolutely awesome, and their ice cream was top quality stuff. This is similar to a Ben...More
