Tucked away at the downtown end of the Walnut St Bridge, this was an excellent choice. We were very hot and stopped in for a water. It smelled so good, we came back later for ice cream. It was delicious!! Busy, but service is fast. Try chocolate with coffee and toffee mixed in...yummy!

Great location to stop and get a tasty treat. Quick walk over the bridge to The Ice Cream Show. We loved that they give you a choice between ice cream or frozen yogurt and then mix in just about anything you like. Busy place, but service was fast.

Took a little bit to fit this place and parking is tough, but it was all worth it. Friendly staff, quick service and the ice-cream was good.

We had just walked across the bridge in Chattanooga and came across the Ice Cream Show. First off, you get a discount if you are a veteran. The man mixing the ice cream takes a couple of scoops out, and puts it in a machine, and it comes out similar to a soft serve. The cone is made there and... More

This is the most unusual ice cream shop I've ever been to. You choose vanilla or chocolate soft ice cream and what kind of things you want added into it and there are many choices listed. I didn't see any prices, but I think it was a bit pricey at about $5 for a waffle cone with vanilla ice cream... More

We stopped by for a drink and light snack. My husband got a cone and I got an iced coffee. We both were very pleased. Would recommend.

This was another surprise during our visit. We just happened to walk by and went in. Just in time the line behind us grew the length of the store. We were about 4th in line. The size dictates the price and no limit on the number of add ins. It was goooood

We are writing this even as we eat the last bites of ice cream while sitting in comfy chairs at this shop. If you need to cool off and want a great treat, make sure to stop in here!

This was the most unusual way to get ice cream that I've ever experienced but it was really good. Its confusing how to mix the different flavors but the end result is delicious. There is outdoor seating where you can enjoy your treats in a nice part of town.
