About Us

Our Story

The Lakeside Creamery was founded in June of 1995 by entrepreneur Bill Meagher. The delicious scoops and homemade waffle cones, paired with a lakefront view, quickly made it a staple for tourists and locals alike.

For the last 20 years, the Lakeside Creamery has been delighting visitors with delicious homemade ice cream and sherbets served on the shore of Deep Creek Lake. As Western Maryland’s premiere ice cream parlor, we aim to provide a higher standard of experience.

Our ice cream is made with cream from local dairy farms, fresh fruit, and high quality nuts and cookies. The Creamery recipes have been tested over and over until perfected, giving our 90 flavors a taste that is “like no udder”.

The Creamery employs Garrett County’s best and brightest young adults, who offer friendly and fast service to thousands of customers every summer. In fact, we’re rated the top restaurant at Deep Creek Lake by TripAdvisor reviews.

Above all however, our company believes enjoyment and community are the foundation of our success. We are happy to be part of the Garrett County family of businesses and support local charities and development. We are proud to partner with other restaurants and attractions to bring visitors to our beautiful home, and look forward to building connections with our customers.
