    Interesting destination

    Go for the history and learning experience… stay for the cheese samples and flavorful ice cream. Soooo good! Also, down the road is the store for discount jerky… definitely give it a stop-in. Memorable food moments… make some memories!

    A fun experience

    Visiting the creamery was fun for my husband and I . Would be fun for a family to walk through and read about how cheese is made. You even get to look down into the factory while people are working.

    Good for a road trip break and lunch.

    If you love cheese, especially Tillamook then you must stop. The self guided tour was neat and we appreciated the samples. The gift shop was fun and had a ton of items to choose from and the staff in there was great. The food was good but the ordering process was chaotic. Lots of teenagers that were having fun but forgot about helping customers in the process. It was cafeteria style seating and prices weren’t bad for what you got. They do allow leashed dogs outside in the seating area but during the winter it was too cold/wet to use that option even though it was a covered area. The is a long grass pathway along side the parking lot to walk your dog and give them a potty break.

    Easy self guided tour or you can pay for a guided tour with a set start time. We opted for the self guided tour, which was very informative. Cheese tasters, milking stations to try your skills, windows overlooking the processing at each step, and all kinds of fun facts. The whole self guided tour took us about 45 minutes and then we hit up the gift shop. We couldn't leave without ice cream and with so many flavors we decided to have them as milkshakes instead. I would recommend stopping in at least once.

    a bit overrated? To be fair, the production wasn’t really up and running when we were there, so there wasn’t much to see in that regard. It is a beautiful facility, nice and clean with lots of parking. Of course the cheese and ice cream is great, but the lines for ice cream are long and it’s expensive. The merchandise in the store is also a bit expensive. Just be prepared to pay and wait for your cone.
