Friendsville hosts several restaurants and an Irish Pub. Wake up early and have a country ‘homestyle’ breakfast at the Jubilee Junction Diner, spend the day trout fishing, rafting or hiking on the Kendall Trail. Walk up the peaceful main street to the Museum and learn about the early settlers of Garrett County’s oldest settlement (EST 1765) or just relax by the water at the community park doing nothing.

In the afternoon stop by Ken’s Irish Pub for a refreshing beer or cider and have a snack at the bar. In the evening relax by the river and enjoy a porch or tableside view of the water and sampling the fair of both the Riverside Hotel and The Water Street Cafe. After dinner stroll back across the bridge for some live music and libation back at the Pub, or maybe an ice cream at the Jubillee Diner.  You’ll quickly discover why Friendsville is rapidly becoming ‘the adventure thrill and chill’ location in western Maryland.

The Riverside Hotel


The Riverside’s Dinner menu is refreshingly simple, offering organic, vegetarian dinners planned daily. Fresh vegetables and herbs from the garden out back are harvested daily and soups are specially designed by the changing of the seasons to provide the freshest meals possible.  Supporting local and organic farmers and suppliers is a top priority to compliment the healthiest of meals available in the area.
