Every flavor is delicious

We stopped by for some late night ice cream and brought our puppy along. They give a "dog friendly" ice cream with a treat on top for free.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a Bruster's in Knoxville. You just can't beat their store made ice cream and waffle cones. I also like that their favors are constantly changing.

This was a better Brusters than I am used to going too. The staff was friendly an they had at leat 4 windows open and the lines dwindled im no time. Very good ice cream but I feel it is a bit pricey but may be worth the wait .

Great tasting ice cream. Our kids love it. So many flavors and options. They even have no-sugar added ice cream for dad. We love going to Brewster's and we always return.

Fresh made waffel cones filled with the best ice cream in town. Be sure to leave the server's your change, their smiling faces deserve it.

I drive by often and try not to stop but my car won't listen. Every trip is something new. A new flavor I never thought I would like but becomes an obsession. Look for coupons in mint magazine as well as school coupon book.

I grew up going to this ice cream place, and all nostalgia aside, it's a delicious place to grab dessert.

I've never had an ice cream I don't like here. Fave is Key Lime Pie. The graham cracker crust inside is the best! I've only eaten ice cream here, never had any of their other items.

Love the real flavor and the constant change of flavors. Be prepared to wait in line but well worth it.

Took the kids for an afternoon treat. Had a wide range of choices from ice cream to shakes to just about anything frozen. I had a small chocolate shake. Chocolatey and not too sweet. Creamy. Only downside is there is no inside seating, only outside.
