Most places are in the business to sell ice cream.....They have no Sundae's. They only sell one small size of soft or dipped ice cream. People like to take ice cream back to their place of stay while vacationing and want more than a small...cup. I had a whole family to feed ice cream and wasn't wanting to buy 8 people a small ice cream at over $4 a piece = $32 plus tax. We moved on and took our business elsewhere.......Sorry Charlie......More

Hi! I am not sure what you are upset with?? We do not offer gallon of ice cream. We offer ice cream per person. If you want bulk ice cream, might I suggest a grocery store? ALso, we have sundaes.

Cute little place to stop in for some hand dipped ice cream and we had perfect weather to enjoy it outside. Service was excellent and they had lots of flavors to choose from.

There were 9 of us, we had ice cream and slushies. All were very good. Have been there on numerous trips to Pigeon Forge and they never disappoint.

This place had awesome funnel cakes. They are delicious and huge! Their milkshakes are good to, but we LOVED the funnel cakes. My husband got confectioners sugar and strawberries on his. I just like the sugar! You won’t be disappointed! 🤗

Came in and got ice cream 🍦 with the family and had the best service in a long time. Staff was friendly and polite. I highly recommend this spot for your ice cream cravings.

I rarely will take the time to write a bad review, but this place warranted it. The Johnson Family Restaurants are usually top notch, but boy was this disappointing. I got the vanilla and it had pretty much zero flavor. Who tried this and said...“yum, yes perfect. That’s the ice cream we’re gonna change $6 per waffle cone for!”? I could’ve gotten way better ice cream at the grocery store and spent a lot less. It says creamery, but I’d be interested to know if they actually make their own ice cream. I’m guessing they buy this lackluster stuff (probably Hershey’s). This place is a perfect example of focusing on location instead of quality. Please do yourselves a favor and create a good vanilla bean ice cream with flavor or at least switch to Bluebell. I honestly gave mine to my chocolate lab. He seemed to enjoy it at least. I will add that the employees were friendly.More

I've been there twice this week just because the icecream is so good! Mad Dog's is located right on the PF strip next to Lost Treasure Putt-Putt, great location for getting a sweet treat after a fun night out! We've always had a great time...and good dessert here!More

Well, sort of. It may not be allowed to bring a pet dog inside, but they do sell two kinds of doggie treats in the store and there is a whole wall dedicated to pictures of customer's dogs. I'm pretty sure you could bring... More
