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.

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.

I absolutely love there cake batter ice cream! My boyfriend gets the chocolate in a waffle cone and he said it was good as usual! You can go around back and sit at the tables and look at the water which is nice! The only thing I dont care for is they actually weigh the ice cream for your price.... More

Many delicious flavors of ice cream!! Also sherbets and at least flavor of sorbet. Recommend the "Sweet Cream" and their version of Butter Pecan. Love the many pennants that decorate all of the walls.

What a fun spot overlooking Deep Creek Lake in Maryland! The ice cream is rich and creamy. My old fashioned root beer float was wonderful and my husband tasted two different ice creams and decided on both.
