“Love the Blue Goo!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

East Wind has a ton of different ice cream flavors and the biggest ice cream cones I've ever seen! If you order a large cone you'd better request a cup to go with it! The food is good but seemed a bit pricey to me. Don't be discouraged by the lines. They move pretty fast & the ice cream is worth the wait!

“Ice cream, only”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

There are many, many places back home that serve much better burgers. I'm sure the patties weren't fresh and we saw the frozen onion rings taken from a bag as well. It seems very popular, but probably for the ice cream, which is good. I would eat elsewhere and then go here for dessert. Most people would be satisfied with just a small-which is still a lot of ice cream.

“THIS IS A MUST AND WORTH WAING IN LINE”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

After a disappointing experience down at the Cascade Steamboat Tours we chanced a visit to this wonderful ice cream ans burger shop. The ice cream was awesome and the cone so tall you could eat it fast enough to beat the melt down. This is a must stop along I84 at Cascade Locks.

“Love this place!!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

There's nothing quite like an Eastwind burger! I absolutely love them. For me, they just seem to melt in my mouth and the flavor is top notch! I'm a local and have been going here for roughly 30years and will continue to do so. Most comments refer to the wait, which can be long, especially in the summer months. The trick is to call in your order to go before hand. They will give you a time frame (10-15 min or so) then go pick up your food! Keep in mind that food is made to order and the place is equipped with a small fryer and small grill. They can only cook so much at a time. For tourists, their ice cream is a must. I always tell people they may not want to order the large because it is literally a foot high.
