    Well worth the drive!

    Fascinating to watch the process of the cheese being made! Worth the drive from Portland. The shop and the ice cream are top notch!

    If you like food production, its 5 stars

    Great place but gets quite crowded. Self-guided tour through farming and milking cows and on into cheese production and packaging. Shop at the store, have lunch, get ice cream. Lots of interactive elements to keep all ages involved. I would go early to ab=void crowds, but then again, that might be part of the fun. 1-2 hours, longer if you are shopping and eating

    Tillamook - Such a Great Choice!

    Loved every bit of this! Tour is incredibly designed and executed. Restaurant (burgers and cheese curds) was tremendous. LOVED the Stubborn soda fountain, too - Agave Vanilla Cream Soda and Black Cherry Tarragon were faves. Disappointed the pineapple one was out. Had great ice cream and a fantastic gift shoppe!

    A better visit than even before but, alas, endless samples are a memory

    This factory tour is a must for Portland and Oregon coast visitors. It is about a 2H drive from our hotel in Portland but it's scenic. It is located not on the coast but farther inland near the main highway. There's plenty of free parking. The newly renovated visitor's center is better than I remembered. The tour proceeds at your own pace. The walls of windows over the cheesemaking room makes it easy to coordinate the captions with the real-time actions. Stop for a meal and finish with their ice cream. Perfect pairing. The gift shop before exiting is actually a worthwhile stop. The free sampler center is closed and perhaps will never be re-opened according to an employee. However, on the way out a small sample is passed out.

    High price and low quality

    $12 was way too much for a dish of mac and cheese that tasted like plastic, even before the kitchen staff said "there was nothing wrong with the mac and cheese". If you aren't asked how you want the meat on your burger done, I assume it's not going to be pink in the middle, but that's the way this was...very pink! When paying for items in the gift shop, we were told there was a discount there and in the cafe for veterans/military, but of course by then it was far too late to use it for food. As folks that use their products almost on a daily basis, and have done so for many, many years it was disappointing and not a pleasant experience.
