We ended up coming here because I had a bad case of heartburn from The Stillery nearby (awesome Mac & Cheese with Hot Chicken, but take your Zantac first!) I noticed they had flavors I hadn't seen before so for those wanting something a little different I recommend you give them a try. I got a scoop of strawberry (wanting... More

My wife and I went to Mike's last year and loved it and it was one of the main reasons we went back to Nashville this year. We got blueberry cheesecake and it is so rich and creamy with chunks of cheesecake in it. It is sooo good. They have a lot of flavors and it is homemade by them... More

Delicious ice cream - so many flavours the hard part is choosing! Very generous portions - one scoop is plenty! Tripadvisor says different opening times - it is open late (11pm at least) so a perfect spot for desert!

We eat a lot of ice cream. It's kind of our thing. Mikes has very good ice cream we tried Loaded Butterscotch and Maple Blondie. Both were quite sweet, but also had a depth of flavor. It was nice to step out of the madness that is Nashville for a few moments. I'd definitely recommend it!

I understand Mike's has recently moved to its current quarters on Second Avenue, which is where we visited in late October. The ice cream selections were perfect and the service was outstanding.

I couldn't decide on a flavor so I asked the guy that worked there for a recommendation. He told me the caramel cone was his fave. So I got a scoop of moose tracks and scoop of caramel cone in a cup and both were really good.

The flavors were good, the line was quick. It seemed to be more of a spot than a destination. There really isn't much character in this little shop to speak of. Nothing to bring you back. Like stated in the title, "It's ice cream".

Thank romejaohio
