This place has the best fresh homemade ice cream I have tasted. On Deep Creek Lake you can drive or boat in. Don't be scared by the line. I have been behind 20 people and was served in less than 5 minutes. This place has both great ice cream and customer service. Bill the owner makes all ice cream on... More

Ice cream is very good however should be aware that you pay per weight of cone. For a once in a while visit not bad but living up here you can't go too often 😢

We like Lakeside Creamery but it is way too expensive for a visiting crowd.......the portions are small for the price paid. The ice cream is excellent, but we go sparingly!

Great flavors. Fun to sit at the tables in the back and enjoy the lake. Just wish a large cone was less than $4-$5.

It's nearly impossible to find sugar free ice cream, difficult to find low sugar ice cream, and a bit hard to find no-sugar-added ice cream. Usually if a place has it, it's only vanilla, but this place had a wonderful butter pecan that I really enjoyed. The full-on-sugar ice cream, I'm told, was very good, too, and they had many... More

Some of the best ice cream I've ever had! The peanut butter fudge flavor tastes just like real peanut butter fudge. A must stop when in Deep Creek!

After a hot summer day on the lake, this is a great place for a break. Dock the boat, walk up the stairs and kick back with a great homemade ice cream! Really great flavor options in a clean comfortable restaurant.

Stopped by in the afternoon to get a snack. It was pretty much right next door to our condo. They weigh the ice cream to get a total for you to pay. I ordered four different flavors for us to try and all were very good and creamy. The flavors were cream sickle, black raspberry, chocolate raspberry truffle and cherry... More

Delicious, of course. A nice variety of flavors - my son got "Cake Batter" & Mint Chocolate Chip, Daughter got Lemon, she said it seemed like a cross between gelato and sorbet in terms of texture, my brother got the Maple Walnut. Good service with seating inside.
