Great location with a beautiful view to enjoy with your ice cream. Lots of choices to mix in and fresh-made cones make it the best ice cream I think I have ever had. Friendly and quick service, too!

The riverfront in Chattanooga is a wonderful experience with all it's parks and eclectic buildings. Watching the Riverboat depart from Walker Street bridge is a treat but the biggest treat comes at the end of the walk across from the downtown parks to the Ice cream store called The Ice Cream Show. Great atmosphere and friendly service top off the... More

Our family visited The Ice Cream Show on a recent Sunday afternoon. It's location in downtown Chattanooga by the Walnut Street Bridge ensures that it stays busy. There is some free street parking in front of the building but this is limited by construction of a new hotel across the street. There is more street parking as well as a... More

So many flavors, the worst part is having to choose. Neat way of mixing all the flavors making for an unforgettable treat. It allows all the flavors to be mixed evenly instead of bites of rich flavor then nothing. We go here every time the wife and I visit.

We like to walk across the Walnut Street Bridge and stop here for Ice Cream before walking back across. They are very friendly and do a great job mixing your ice cream and the extras just the way you like it.

The service was great. They are not the fastest, but they are fast enough. The instructions for your ice cream are in multiple different languages, so it is easy for most any person in America to order. The quality of the food is great and the portion size is equally excellent. Would recommend to all my friends.

This is a unique and delicious ice cream parlor (and coffee bar). They have a unique approach to ice cream. They mix your choice of ingredients through a specialized auger that really blends the flavored without whipping it. They have all kinds of ingredients, making the options seem endless. Great fun for a family or dessert after a dinner elsewhere
