We stopped here traveling on the scenic route for a snack. We ended up getting the kids ice cream here from the window. Lots of flavor options and add-ins. Everyone found something they wanted. Good prices for good portions.

While staying in town we were looking for a quick bite to eat after a long day of exploring the local waterfalls. Our hotel was down the street so we wandered down after reading good reviews. Our family shared a couple double bacon cheese burgers,...mozzarella sticks and curly fries. The food came out hot & fresh and super fast. Everything tasted great. After sitting out front and eating we started to clean up to go get our ice cream cones. Little did we realize they had closed early just minutes ago. I had two boys that were looking forward to the ice cream so I went to the window with a bunch of other people who had just pulled in expecting them to be open too. Even though they were cleaning up the gentlemen made our ice cream. We appreciated that even though they were closing early they honored the people still there. The small ice cream cones were as amazing as everyone says. Give Eastwind a try if you're nearby but don't trust the hours you may see posted online.More

Only drive thru open right now and long lines but moves quickly. The soft serve ice cream is yummy and the employee was super friendly and we were about the last car served! We ordered a small most people ordered a large. The large is...obnoxiously large but looked so cool! The ice cream was yummy!More

There ice cream cones are hugh, delicious and lots of flavor choices. Very reasonable price. They also have burgers, fries, etc, but I think they are most popular for their ice cream. Right now it's drive thru only, but they do take charge cards/cash. Parking...available.More

Took the staff for a ride from Portland to Cascade Locks just to get an ice cream cone. Even with corona virus they were friendly and quick. The ice cream cones are huge.

It is a small drive in serving Breakfast through evening meals. They are quick on serving your orders. It’s like the old time burgers and fries that a person received back in the day. Their ice cream cones are unbelievable. A small is bigger that...the usual large ones. We have been stopping there for many years. Thank you for their service.More

We stopped in on the way back to Vancouver from our day trip to Hood River just to try the ice cream that a friend recommended. We both had a small one in a cup and one with a cone. The flavor burst with mocha...cappuccino was really good. The small is huge and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be back when we are in the area again.More

Delightful spot. We’ve been stopping in on our journeys along I-84 for years. Thumbs up to the burgers, fries, chicken strips, and milkshakes. The ice cream treats are always satisfying and HUGE—the cones and the freezes. Enjoy!

Yes, it’s a Saturday afternoon and the people waiting in line show that this is the place to be! We’ve been stopping here for decades - year round knowing they have the best cheese bacon burgers ever!! Along with perfect fries and the biggest soft...ice cream cones. Old and young alike make a point of grabbing something good here. This small drive up/walk up is consistently awesome.More

Had a cheeseburger and an ice cream cone each. The small ice cream cone is big enough for almost anyone.

Great place to take the kids or grandkids for ice cream. There is usually a long line in the summer, but it goes pretty fast, and is interesting seeing all the people and cars. The small ice cream cone or dish is plenty. They have...two basic flavors, chocolate and vanilla, with "flavor bursts" added for a little extra. The flavor bursts are other flavors swirled on the outside of the base ice cream. From what I understand the large ice cream cone is so large it is almost considered a joke.More

Due to the far-right protest in Portland, we opted to hit the Columbia River gorge. We came upon this old drive-in and grabbed a couple of burgers and a root beer float. The burger was good and the float was excellent. We were too full...to have a ice cream cone but I’m sure they were yummy too. The place was crowded with Boy Scouts but we managed to find a seat indoors. The staff was great and hustling to get orders out quickly.More

Old fashion ice cream place to get soft serve, floats and other delishious items. Right along the main street, it does have a drive thru window. Just be super careful as people stand around and not paying attention to cars. It had a movie poster...from Wild on their wall, and pretty sure it was used in the movieMore

There is usually a long line outside this place. I remember having a good ice cream several years ago. This last weekend we had breakfast there. Most of the food was store bought and re-heated in a micro-wave so not fresh, not particularly tasty and...small portions. Not cheap either. Overall a disappointing experience. Staff/owners were pleasant, interior is dated and rather dilapidated. Not sure if there is a better breakfast place in town but it might be worth looking if you have time.More
