We just tried 3 of the Nashville's best Hot Chicken restaurants and needed to cool off. I had a mango smoothie and my cousin's husband had a shake. Both were excellent, good prices too. He's been coming to Mike's for a long time and it's one of his favorite spots for dessert. Definitely give Mike's a try if you're in... More

I got a strawberry smoothie here which was tasty and cold. The staff were very pleasant but the service was quiet slow. Good location just off the strip.

I always look for ice cream while on vacation. I ate at Mike's 3 times! Staff is friendly and you can sit and people watch.

We stopped in one morning while strolling Broadway in Nashville. There were many flavors that you could try before deciding your favorite flavor. The ice cream had an excellent creamy rich flavor. My personal choice was the coffee chocolate and butter pecan. My husband said the blueberry cream cheese cake was terrific. Reasonably priced, our ticket was $10.

If you had told me yesterday that blackberry cornbread ice cream existed, I would have laughed. Well, I had some and it was great. As was the Salted Caramel. So if you're near this shop, stop in and try it. It's great!

I came here because I was told that the owner was a great guy and we couldn't go wrong with the fresh, tasty ice cream that my friend assured me would be waiting, plus airconditioning in the summer. The shop and the other people working there more than met my expectations. I was predisposed to like Mike's and ended up... More

I had a scoop of pistachio and my wife had a scoop of chocolate with peanut butter cups. The texture is incredible. Best ice cream we've had in a long time. Really big scoops loaded with flavor and nice sturdy spoons. The only PITA is trying to find a place to park on 2nd Ave. We're local and aren't going... More

All homemade ice cream, which tastes fresh and delicious. The waffle cones tasted freshly made as well. I had white chocolate banana pudding ice cream. Would get it again.

First, I'm happy they are open late. Even on a Sunday night they were open to 11. I could get my sugar high right before bed. There were plenty of selections. They had all of the more mainstream flavors but also some of the more creative options. Ice cream was t cheap but you got a good amount for your... More
