Loved the concept and that there was a frozen yogurt option. A little confusing for first timers and a little pricey after adding additional toppings to be blended but it was delicious! Love that they make their waffle cones in house.

The Ice Cream Show is my favorite place in Chattanooga to buy ice cream. They make nearly any variety of ice cream you can imagine. The texture is exceptional and unlike any other ice cream you've probably tried. I highly recommend the Ice Cream Show.

Stopped in at The Ice Cream Show and was blown away by the many, many choices! I chose vanilla ice cream with a Moon Pie mix-in and my husband had vanilla with amaretto added. The flavor was great and there were so many options - everything from chocolates to fruit to other liquors. The prices are quite steep, so I... More

After a day walking and exploring Chattanooga we found this little place. Nice chairs, great temperature inside, delicious ice cream. It was a perfect good bye to our little road trip.

I have never been to an ice cream shop quite like this. They have dozens of mix-ins that really transform the ice cream. I agree that it is a little expensive but the ice cream is quite good.

Multiple ice cream types (vegan, soft serve, frozen yogurt) was nice, as was the many mix-ins (fruits, nuts, candies). The wait was longer than similar style ice cream joints and the prices were crazy, an "adult" cup sets you back enough to buy an entire carton, tack on the mix-ins and we averaged $8 per adult and $6 per child,...

After a long day of walking around Chattanooga, this was a great place to sit and relax and enjoy a nice, cool soft served ice cream treat. You can sit inside or outside. The staff was friendly and helpful. With all the additives and toppings, they can make 17,000 combinations! Wow! I guess I need to make a few mire... More

These people are so nice! The ice cream is to die for! You can get any combination of topping blended into your ice cream that your heart desires. I love the smell of waffle cones when you walk in because they make them right inside. This time I tried something new.....ice-cream with a shot of espresso blended in....it was gone... More
