Every now and again my partner and I come to Chattanooga. When we come here and walk the bridge, we always stop at The Ice Cream Show. Very good people and a refreshing stop.

We went here off of a recommendation and we are so glad we did! This is unlike any ice cream I have had. You pick either vanilla or chocolate and then choose toppings. Then they mix it all together and it comes out similar to soft serve but thicker. Definitely get the waffle cone.

We stopped by ICS a few years back and have made a point of stopping by just about every time we are back in Chattanooga. There are a whole range of Maggie Moos, Creameries, Baskin Robbins, etc. In my opinion, The Ice Cream Show does it better than anybody.

My wife and I recently visited The Ice Cream Show twice in 2 days during our visit to Chattanooga. Once for ice cream and once for coffee/hot chocolate. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Lynda. She was very friendly and gave a few business insights. The ice cream set up is perfect. You just choose the favor of... More

My husband is diabetic so it can be difficult to find no sugar added ice cream but this place did. The place was extremely clean and there were plenty of things to add in the ice cerements.

Parking is a bit of a challenge, but well worth the search. The ice cream was delicious. It was great to have a choice between ice cream or frozen yogurt. There's almost too many choices, but that's a good problem to have. We were delighted to find the pedestrian bridge just outside the door. It was great to eat our... More

We were hot after walking the Walnut Street Bridge, so we stopped in here to get a cold drink. My son got a chocolate shake, which he said was very good, and the rest of us got sodas. The place was very clean, and the employees were friendly.

Mayfield Ice Cream, not soft-serve, but blended with your choice of ingredients. I was really pleased with my dark chocolate ice cream, walnuts, and Kahlua flavoring. Excellent treat, but I felt overpriced a bit. Nice outdoor patio area. They also do "Frosty Paws" for your dog...

The ice cream hit the spot on a very hot bike ride and was delicious! The restaurant was too warm on a hot day and so was the water you had to get yourself out of a fountain in a flimsy paper Cup.
