“Best Malt EVER!!!”

Glades Soda Fountain
Ranked #7 of 14 Dessert in Gatlinburg
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We just so happened to see a soda shop sign on the way back to our cabin. This little gem is located in the arts and craft district in Gatlinburg. We decided to stop in and our group of 7 was very pleased with everything we got. They make their own soda which is fantastic and the vanilla malt was by far the best I have ever had. My kids also enjoyed their floats very much. The place is really small and set up with a counter just like an old fashioned soda shop but there is plenty of outside seating. Next time we are in Gatlinburg we will be stopping here for sure!!

The ice cream shop serves Mayfield ice cream. I know, you can get this anywhere, but not just anyplace can make an old fashioned ice cream soda. They actually have the old style stainless steel malt mixers. Your desert is served in thick glassware. A nice patio is adjacent to the shop. For me, a trip to the Smokies would not be complete without a stop here.

Guys, if you are in the Glades and want a sweet ice cream creation, this is it. They make "old fashioned" ice cream sodas and all good things. Whenever my grandsons come for a visit, we always stop here. They are not always open in the winter months but the shops are. Enjoy your visit.

This place is a must see and very worth a trip to the glades. The root beer float was amazing! The wife had a cider and homemade rootbeer which was great also. It was a neat experience!

We went there while in the area on vacation and so glad we did... best found in TN while there.... we got the brownie delight ans shared it... it is so big and such great flavored vanilla ice cream with hot fudge, a brownie, whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry... definitely a must try place... try the brownie delight well worth the money. ... can't wait to visit again while in TN!!!!!
