So Coldstone/Marble Slab gathers all of your ingredients and kind of mashes and cuts and combines everything. This company kind of does the same thing but (as far as I can tell), they really blend everything together. It was great. I loved mine. You start off with a base of vanilla or chocolate, add any toppings you want and whatever... More

You can choose between ice cream or frozen yogurt for the base and add any topping to mix in- not just a sprinkle... they mix it in a machine so it's really mixed throughout! Awesome! It's a must have!!!

Ice cream in freezing temparatures is the best thing. If you happen to have it at The Ice Cream Show, it is an icing on the cake or should I say Ice Cream. The ice cream flavours are great and the best part is you can mix and match.

Great location with a beautiful view to enjoy with your ice cream. Lots of choices to mix in and fresh-made cones make it the best ice cream I think I have ever had. Friendly and quick service, too!

The riverfront in Chattanooga is a wonderful experience with all it's parks and eclectic buildings. Watching the Riverboat depart from Walker Street bridge is a treat but the biggest treat comes at the end of the walk across from the downtown parks to the Ice cream store called The Ice Cream Show. Great atmosphere and friendly service top off the... More

Our family visited The Ice Cream Show on a recent Sunday afternoon. It's location in downtown Chattanooga by the Walnut Street Bridge ensures that it stays busy. There is some free street parking in front of the building but this is limited by construction of a new hotel across the street. There is more street parking as well as a... More

So many flavors, the worst part is having to choose. Neat way of mixing all the flavors making for an unforgettable treat. It allows all the flavors to be mixed evenly instead of bites of rich flavor then nothing. We go here every time the wife and I visit.
