Ice Cream on sunny Saturday afternoon

Okay, the line was long and moved slowly. It was a beautiful day and everyone was out and about. We stopped for ice cream after hiking the Multnomah Falls overlook trail. We knew about the East Wind from reading Wild. I am a PCT hiker from years back. While in line we talked to a couple of hikers... read more

I think they git every part of our order wrong, and then it was a 30 minute wait for french fries that were barely cooked! Go anywhere else.

I have never waited so long for an ordinary cheese burger EVER. We waited in line forever then when our turn came we thought yeah. Only to discover that they give you your giant sundae first and send you around the corner to wait for your food. So we ate the probably 40 once size soft ice cream pile that... More

Defiantly eat the ice cream but expect to wait in a huge line sometimes an hour on summer weekends! The food can be ok depends on which cook is there at the time you go. Its a burger joint!

If you're going to get an ice cream cone there's no other place on 84 between Portland and Pendleton to get one the challenge is eating it before it melts this is a great place and I must stop it's a great place and a must stop if you're traveling through the gorge

We tried going to one of the restaurant/bars on the water but were not impressed with the menu so we backtracked to the East Wind. Looks (and tastes) a lot like a vintage Dairy Queen - but overall the food is better. It was very busy so it took a little while to get the food - the milk shake... More

Soft serve doesn't get any better than this. We got smalls and had a hard time finishing it. Don't try to drive and eat these cones. Take a break and enjoy the views and the river.

My wife and i were out hiking in the gorge when we drove into Cascade Locks to get something to drink. When we got out of the car, we caught a whiff of frying burgers and immediately were starving. We were parked a little ways up the road from this place and decided to grab a burger. THere was a... More

Eat here! They have HUGE burgers and there order of fries could feed two people. Their menu is extensive for such a small place. We also ate breakfast here and could not believe how good it was. I had the croissant breakfast sandwich...and wish the East Wind was in my town! My husband had the breakfast burrito and it was... More
