Stopped here for a cone and we were so happy we did. Delicious and generous servings! A must stop if you are on Broadway:)

The icecream we had was really good. The shop is small and congested but the icecream and.milkshakes were very tasty. Plus they had many different flavors of icecream. I highly recommend any of the coffee flavors.

I'm sure that this is the best ice cream that I have ever had. Amazing value for what you get, especially compared to its competitors...Every time I'm downtown and need a cool treat, I make sure to head to Mikes Ice Cream! Lots of different flavors, sizes and types of ice cream. They have traditional flavors and some different flavors... More

We stopped into Mike's on a recent trip to Nashville for an afternoon treat. The ice cream was delicious, staff very friendly, and portions more than generous. The prices are reasonable, and the line for ordering moved along quickly. Overall a very good choice for a quick treat or dessert.

They are open until midnight...bonus. But, you have to walk by a bunch of bars to get to it on Broadway, so the sidewalks are crowded at night. The ice cream was great; I had the pralines and cream. Hint: for people new to Nashville, walk a bit further past 1st to the river station and check out the FREE... More

This store has an excellent location, and was a welcome respite on our hot afternoon walking Broadway. I thought the ice cream was good, but nothing "mind blowing" about it. Maybe I still had Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream on my mind from earlier in the week? Price was average for a fresh made, hand scooped ice cream parlor. I wouldn't... More

Stopped in with some friends on a Saturday night...the place was packed to the gills with the line to the door. If you have never been here - it's a tiny place! Once we made it inside, we were able to view the menu of choices while we waited in line to order. There was so much activity and the... More

Homemade ice cream scooped by hand. This facility is quite small, but the employees work like crazy to move the continuous flow of people lined up outside in and out. The ice cream is simply delicious! Red velvet, coffee fudge, toasted almond . . . don't settle for one scoop!

My family had ice cream here three days in a row while visiting Nashville and yet I'm only giving this place an average rating. The ice cream was okay, but honestly I've had better. The ONLY reason we ate here three times was because it seemed to be the only place to get ice cream downtown. In addition, the place... More
