1. The Yard Milkshake Bar

If an out-of-this-world experience is what you’re looking for when it comes to ice cream, then you have to try The Yard Milkshake Bar! Located in Lumberjack Square, this ice cream shop serves wild milkshake and ice cream creations that will blow your mind. There’s a flavor that will satisfy just about anyone, and you’ll have to order one to believe your eyes. Get a milkshake topped with a slice of cheesecake, a s’more, cookie, or other dessert and covered in whipped cream, syrups, and other toppings. If you don’t want any of the milkshakes or sundaes already made, you can create your own!

2. Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard

Another fantastic place to get ice cream in Pigeon Forge is Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard. Their frozen custard is creamy, and there’s a flavor for everyone! If you aren’t in the mood for custard, you can always get an Italian ice, which is made fresh every day with real fruit. And if you’re feeling really crazy, you could combine the two!

3. Buzzed Bull Creamery

Buzzed Bull Creamery is a unique ice cream shop all its own. You definitely won’t find another shop quite like it, because they freeze ice cream in front of you, and you can get alcohol added to it! You can get your ice cream “non-buzzed” if you don’t want alcohol. Choose from flavors like honey bourbon pecan, dreamsicle, lemon cake, and more. If there’s not a flavor that catches your eye, you can always build your own treat!

4. Mad Dog’s Creamery

A shop that serves some of the best ice cream in Pigeon Forge is Mad Dog’s Creamery. They have all the classic ice cream flavors, from vanilla to birthday cake to mint chocolate chip. You’ll also find more unique ones, like strawberry cheesecake, caramel pie, and white chocolate raspberry. We know you’re on the hunt for ice cream, but Mad Dog’s also serves incredible donuts in every flavor! Try a traditional glazed yeast donut or a cinnamon sugar cake donut. Some other house specialty pastries include fried pies, apple fritters, and cinnamon rolls!

5. Curl de la Crème

Pigeon Forge is full of unique ice cream shops, and Curl de la Crème is no exception! Instead of seeing ice cream tubs in a freezer, you’ll see a flat top where flavors are added to a cream based and frozen into ice cream right before your eyes! The thin layers of ice cream are rolled into ribbons, and served in cups or waffle tacos! Get your creation topped with your favorite sprinkles, candies, or nuts, and you’re ready to enjoy!
