I was SO excited to go here for some ice cream after a big hike in the gorge . Long line, but worth the wait, or so I thought. I'm a very healthy, active person who RARELY gets sick. About five hours after I had my (awesome) ice cream, I'd never been sicker in my life. Absolutely no doubt it... More

We stopped here for lunch in October. We initially went past it to check out the museum nearby and noticed there was no one in line at the place. About 10 minutes later we returned and several vehicles had arrived and people were lined up at the window. We ate cheeseburgers which were very good and had "small" ice cream... More

We (my wife and I) ate breakfast here while staying in town. It's a drive through with about 5 stools inside for a few people to eat at the counter. We arrived early enough to get a spot. With a direct view into the kitchen I could see that they were making my biscuits and gravy from scratch, rather than... More

I don't understand why this place is popular. The ice cream is average, although in enormous portions. The customer service is extremely slow and indifferent to customers.

Called in as we left Hood River for our Bacon-Cheese Burgers and two small fries. Ready when we got there. Often long lines in the summer and on weekends makes calling in our order smart! And their soft ice cream is marvelously thick and good!! This place has been a family spot for years!!

The food itself is fine-ice cream, fries are bigger than you expect so that's a plus. The wait is horrible. We waited in line for at least 45 minutes. When you get to the front you realize the system they you use isn't as efficient as it could be, or, the staff just doesn't care that you waited 45 minutes.... More

We were told about this place by friends who raved about their ice cream, so had to try it ourselves, and were not disappointed. We saw the walk up line was very long, so we went through the drive thru, which was not very busy, and did not have to wait very long. My mom got the banana boat, which... More

Drove by this little place, and both times it had long lines. So, decided to stop. I was craving n iced coffee, and ice cream. Both were good, I ordered a small flurry, but got a medium, they forgot my order. My husband ordered a medium cone, oh my gosh, it was huge. Very good flavor to it though, butter... More

We had read about the ice cream in this small town of Cascade Locks and true to all the other reviews, the wait was long and the staff were not very good at their job But the novelty of the size of their ice cream cones and the flavor choices available outweigh their incompetence in customer service. I waited in... More

LOVED the Ice Cream... if you don't want a foot of ice cream... order the kid's cone (5" or so of ice cream)! Good stuff... Great Breakfast Burritos... Love the burgers and the onion rings... You can't visit Cascade Locks without treating yourself to East Wind!
