No visit to Cascade Locks is complete without a stop at this unassuming little walk-up. I think they serve other things, but you're here for the ice cream cones. They have a large variety of "flavor-blasted" soft serve and the cones are huge! I seriously...More

My friend took me through the Oregon Gorge to Cascade Locks and Hood River and she said she heard they had good soft serve ice cream. Was she right. I haven't had this good of soft serve in many years. Most fast food soft serve...More

Had hamburgers and fries and it just like the old days - hot off the grill. Ice cream is the big seller but we were too full to try on. There is sitting but you can also go across the street and sit on the...More

Ok. They have good burgers. They have soda. They are the home of the gigantic swirly ice cream, if you want to get an ice cream for the car ride home, don't-they are gigantic. You need to eat it there. But did you know that...More

This place is a local treasure as well as a tourist stop. The food is good and the soft serve is the best. Many flavors available in a cone, dish or banana split or sunday. HUGE portions. I suggest small. Two can share.

A must stop for Ice cream lovers. Many shake flavors and add on flavors to enjoy with your soft serve cones. We did not try the drive in food, but it smelled good!
