great lunch

While walking around Nashville six of us stopped here for lunch. It was the price of the lunch that got us in but, the taste of the food will bring us back. I had the barbecue sandwich which was very good and someone had the hotdog, chips and a drink for $4.95, not bad.

My wife had lunch on great advice from the clerk at the art gallery nearby. It may be an ice cream shop, however they do serve lunch. She had a very good tasting chicken salad sandwich, chips, and drink. The sandwich came with fresh tomato, lettuce, and chicken salad with cranberries and sunflower seeds infused into it. I saw a...

My wife and I went here for their banana splits. You get a lot of ice cream and toppings for the price. Definitely worth checking out!

First of all, I'm pretty sure everything here is from a can or premade and the ice cream is def old and not freshly made. The service was rude, and extremely slow and when I complained about the ice cream they refused to give me a refund! If you are looking for good ice cream visit Ferrins and if you... More

Friendly service with a smile and enticing scents. We had a delicious cappuccino that kept us warm on a brisk day. I like the looks and decoration of the building too, very cute.

Nothing special about this ice cream shop. The ice cream was average in taste and the variety of flavors was not unusual.

Ice_Cream_Cottage, Manager at Ice Cream Cottage, responded to this review

I am sorry you felt this way. But a little review of your review for others so yours does not discourage future customers. We serve Blue Bell Ice Cream so if you have ever had it you will know how good it is, and also you will know that we are not just 'another' ice cream shop. The ice cream... More

Millers Homemade ice cream is the best. I love the Black walnut. Be sure to purchase a Brown County visitors card to get discounts.

Was recommended to me by salesperson in another store. I was going to choose one of the Mexican lunch offerings, but the waitress cheerily suggested the special of chicken salad with dried cranberries and sunflower seeds served on lettuce with tomato slices -- or a bun if you'd rather. It was as good as it sounded. I did get a... More
