    A Must Stop for Cheese and Ice Cream Lovers

    Our first stop on an 8 day Oregon Coast trip, Tillamook Creamery did not disappoint! A fun stop with a free self-guided tour off the cheese process - this was well designed and informative. The gift shop was well-stocked and open to purchase cheese, ice cream and Tillamook branded products. Our family, after flying for 6 hours from the East Coast, then driving 90+ miles from Portland to Tillamook (we were staying in Rockaway Beach), the Creamery was a welcome stop for our ice-cream loving family. Staff was helpful and accomodating, and we just loved starting our vacation here. A must stop for the vacationing traveler.

    Fun Place to stop

    A great place for a family to check out what it takes to put that cheese on your table. It is a bit crowded and all the work is in tanks so not really visible but you can see the process of slicing and prepping cheese for market. They don't offer samples as they used to due to the pandemic but they do offer small cheese packets for sampling along with ice cream. There is a large selection of cheeses to choose from to buy from the market place. I got almost 1 of everything.

    Way Too Crowded During Ongoing Covid Concerns

    Not sure what we were expecting however, the day we went there were massive crowds lined up in very close quarters. Got some ice cream which was pretty darn good but couldn't wait to get out of there.

    Mildly interesting

    Mildly interesting and an engaging story. Frankly, I wouldn’t recommend unless you have preteens who want to know how cheese is made. Facility was very crowded which takes away from the experience somewhat. The food ok at fair prices. Ice cream is a good deal.

    Cheese-lovers' Disneyland, including the lines

    Wow -- what a popular place -- the lines to the retail shop and the restaurant were swtich-backed like Disneyland, with about as many people it seemed. Still, if you're a fan of cheese, you have to stop here. I did get the ice cream to go (much shorter line!!) -- oh heavens -- delicious. Yes, I buy Tillamook ice cream at the grocery store, and it would have been easy to justify not waiting the 10 minutes to get it at the creamery -- but it tasted better than what I can buy at the local Fred Meyer or Winco. The ice cream was creamy, flavorful, and purely sinful. For that reason alone, I'll be back. Did not take the tour this time -- maybe next time.
