My issue wasn't with the ice cream itself but the lack of flavors. I asked to have scoop of vanilla with coffee. What I got was a vanilla milk shake with a shot of espresso. It was ok. Prices were good. The kids enjoyed their ice cream. Placing the order is slow but they have several people making the orders.... More

Our first stop in Cumberland and we tried this based on a Trip Advisor review. We were totally impressed with the small soda shop feel and some of the best custard we've ever had!

Queen City Creamery has just become an official stopping point whenever a road trip takes us through Cumberland. The frozen custard is very good -- with generous portions. My sandwich was passable...but really, you go for the custard. Very glad to see they also serve coffee, so we can try them out in the morning, too. Friendly service, nice seating... More

Like the variety of options. Had their delicious Ice cream @ night,& had nice breakfest in morning since Ramada around corner did not offer free breakfest with room for us. Nice folks, Great food, & comfy atmosphere. Will come back again when we come through town.

The location is great because it's super close and within walking distance of the restaurants, but it's a little around the corner, so you're given time to walk dinner off a little and then walk the dessert off once you get it. The ice cream was great and the staff was super friendly. Would definitely go back!

We stumbled onto this neighborhood favorite on our way to our hotel for the night. It's the kind of place where friends gather at the front bench on a warm summer night. The Creamery and Deli serves both deli food and delicous custardy ice cream. We can't speak for the deli part but the ice cream was delicious. They serve... More

My wife is from Cumberland. I'm from Albuquerque. We live in California now. For our vacation this year we decided on a road trip around the country. This is one of the highlights. The atmosphere was just what she remembered, and very pleasant for me..a "first timer." The taste of the chicken salad sandwich was very good. It was also... More

We rarely miss an opportunity to stop here for lunch on our way to/from Deep Creek Lake in Maryland. The Creamery is located just 100 yards from the C&O Canal towpath and Great Allegheny Passage bike trail. Lunches here are great, and feature a free scoop of ice cream at the end. This is one of those local favorites/classics you... More
