Was in the area on such a beautiful day and we just happened to stumble upon this place. Atmosphere was Great! Basically they have Vanilla and Chocolate Ice Cream (soft serve) and you pick what ingredients you want them to mix with either Vanilla or Chocolate.

I don't know what it is specifically. It's just basic ice cream and you pick your ingredients. But the way they blend it is all the difference. I wish I could replicate it but I can't. A must do!!!

Basically it's just another ice cream place. You choose between chocolate or vanilla and they blend in your choice of 40 toppings. I did like the decor of the restaurant but was expecting some kind of real show since it's called The Ice Cream Show.

I know I maybe should be more complicated than this... and I know its kind of gimmicky to make your own ice-cream flavor... but I can't help it... the ice-cream here is just really good. I like it.

I have been allergic to milk my whole life. No, I am not lactose intolerant. Milk swells my throat and cuts off my air. When I found the Ice Cream Show it was like finding ice cream for the first time at 25 years old. If you have child with milk allergies I strongly suggest bringing them here for a... More

We love it here and we have been several times. We go a couple of times a week to walk the Walnut Street Bridge and we always park on the North Shore side. I always feel like my ice cream from the Ice Cream Show is my reason to get to the end of the bridge. They offer way to... More

Kinda like Coldstone except with less ice cream options (only chocolate and vanilla). And it's pricey.

We walked across the Walnut Street Bridge and it was a hot day. This shop is in the best location. It hit the spot for us. While the ice cream was nothing extra special, it did remind me a little bit of Marble Slab. I had the strawberry cheesecake. It was good, but didn't taste very cheesecakey. It is pricey,... More

What else can I add? We spent more than 16 bucks in 2 basic ice cream and 1 child size one. Flavors? What? This guys have not idea what a real ice cream is. In Argentina this would be considered disgusting compared to the very cheapest ice cream there. I'm surprised this business is still open. I would prefer but... More

Over 17,000 flavor combinations as it advertises. I didn't do the math but I could believe it once I saw the board with the list of add-ins. The concept is simple but fascinating, start with either vanilla or chocolate ice cream, pick out add-ins, whip together and serve..Delicious! Server was fast and friendly.
