This place was fine - yogurt & ice cream tasted good, lots of mix-in options, nice place to take a break when walking around downtown. We just highly prefer Coldstone - more ice cream flavors and you can actually taste all the mix-ins you just paid for. ICS's waffle cones were good, nothing stellar. It was just fine for us.

I really like the choices and the prices aren't too bad. The only thing that I really dislike is the lack of space and how loud it can seem inside the shop. Their bathroom sinks are not user friendly at all. If you have kids you know that you're going to need to clean them up after from the stick... More

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.
