We've been going here for 16 years on every summer trip to the lake. This tiny ice cream shop on the water has delicious ice cream and sundaes. If you go with a big group get the summer survival sundae and eat it together. It's right next to a great little jewelry store. Worth a stop also.

Been coming to the Creamery since the very first season back in 1995. It is always the first stop on our way into town and our last stop on the way out of town with a few more visits in between. Now my kids enjoy coming as much as I always have. My favorites are anything with chocolate chips, mint... More

Let me start by saying we had the ice cream from the Smilies location. I ordered the brownie sundae and asked for extra fudge. After she made it she said they were out of the fudge and only had chocolate syrup😟. She put it in a Pepsi cup because we were getting it to go which made it difficult to... More

We actually had their ice cream at a satellite wagon at Swallow Falls SP. The ice cream was very very good. I have been to the main store on the lake in the past. This is a popular spot. I went on Fathers Day and to make the treat even more delightful, it was free scoops for fathers! Thanks Lakeside!

The employees were very nice and they were fast to serve. The line was long but it went fast. Delicious ice cream. Some of the best ice cream we ever had. It was a nice bonus that Fathers got free ice cream for Fathers Day.

My family and I visited here on a summer afternoon. For being located at Deep Creek Lake we were expecting to have more ice cream choices but they have the same variety as any other local place. Staff behind the counter were young teens that didn't seem happy to be there or eager to wait on customers. Was very surprised... More

When you visit a place like Deep Creek Lake to relax and have fun, it is important to top the visit off with at least one visit for a refreshing dessert, and Lakeside Creamery will not disappoint. Try any of their sundaes - delicious. One of our party went for the chocolate milkshake and the attendant was not satisfied with... More
