This little spot on the way to Fairfield Glade has frozen custard in cones, bowls or prepackaged to take home. The fresh selection is limited to four choices daily, but more varieties are available in pints or quarts. They also offer shakes and sundaes.

There are custard places near us in Lebanon, but The Custard Cabin in Crossville, TN, just seems to have better custard flavors, along with the pleasant drive to get there.

I am from WI and know custard. This was ok. I cannot complain, I just think WI custard is better. Friendly staff and we visited 2 times during our vacation.

Hard to believe all their ice cream is soft serve custard. They do a great job of creating new and unique taste combinations. Lots of variety. Neat and clean.

Generous, tasty and good service. Small treat for my dog, Ollie. Special for the day but always chocolate or vanilla available. Priced well. Going inside shows fun memorabilia and clean surroundings.

They have a very good product with their custard but as all ice cream has become, EXPENSIVE! Their better buy is inside in the freezer. They package and sell the day's leftovers by the quart. They usually have a sale of those when the season is drawing to a close.

Great way to end the evening. Quaint building, great frozen custard. The Lemon Drop is my personal favorite, with Death by Chocolate a close second!
