Tillamook Creamery

    I Am SO Glad We Stopped!

    I have bought Tillamook products at home in Washington state, but wanted to visit the creamery while on a trip to the Oregon beaches. Wow. My husband and I like cheese, and without a doubt, we enjoyed the best grilled cheese sandwich and macaroni and cheese anywhere! And the ice cream was a sweet treat after our lunch. Dining was outside (mostly) under a roof. After ordering, you were given a buzzer to redeem your order. The gift store was full of delights, both consumable and not. They have a huge selection of all of their refrigerated products, plus other cookies, chips, and treats. Also a large kid-oriented gift and clothing selection. We enjoyed it so much on the southbound trip that we stopped again on our way back home. The second time was just as good as the first, except for rainy weather, and the outdoor dining was not quite as pleasant. We did not have time to take the factory tour, but it gives us an excuse to go back someday. I will always buy their products from now on.

    Food and ice cream are worth a stop, but...

    Stopped by for a grilled cheese sandwich and ice cream cones. Food was excellent, but you had to eat it outside in the wind and cold. I understand with Covid the need to restrict dining, but most people were just getting ice cream. Tillamook county was allowing 25% capacity for dining and it would have been nice to allow people ordering food to eat at an inside table out of the weather. Having said that, the Tillamook cheese sandwich is fantastic and worth a stop even without the famous Tillamook ice cream. Also, while the line for food was reasonable, the line for ice cream was crazy long. It look well over 30 minutes just to get to where you can order. They only had one person taking orders and another serving the ice cream which was woefully inadequate. As others have mentioned, the people in line tended to get much closer to each other than the recommended 6 feet. Even if you tried to keep 6 feet from the person in front of you, because the line wrapped around in a serpentine fashion, you were very close to the people beside you in line. We felt safe because we were fully vaccinated, but it really wasn't particularly Covid compliant. Overall, it is definitely worth a stop, but Tillamook could change some things to make the experience better for everyone (and safer for unvaccinated customers).

    Catch a little Covid with your ice cream

    Every member of the Tillamook staff maintained proper safe distancing and wore masks during our visit, but the clientele in the lines was a far different picture. In the ice cream line there were many customers crowding each other far less than six feet either with their noses out above their masks or not wearing any mask at all. It feels very unsafe to not enforce mask wearing and social distancing, but still claim to practice it. If Tillamook wants us to return, then we need to know they are enforcing safe practices not only among the staff, but the people in line as well. Until then, we'll avoid catching a little Covid with our ice cream.

    Fun to see where our favoite cheddar comes from

    Free parking, free self guided factory tour, great gift shop. Quick and yummy to go (for now) Cafe with cheese items, and an ice cream ship. Fun and interesting stop on our Oregriad trip.

    A delicious tourist trap

    Stopped by on a road trip to get a snack. Good ice cream that we got to go. Actually a decent selection of snacks, drinks, ciders, cheeses, and other goodies. We didn't do the tour or any of the other touristy waste of time, just came for the food which was a good selection. Would stop again if in the area.
