Hoffstadt Bluffs Visitor Center

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 9, 2011

Hoffstadt Bluffs has a great view of the mountain and Toutle River valley. The restaurant Fire Mountain Grill is open 7 days a week and the menu is huge! Such great food and large portion sizes...come hungry! The staff was really friendly and gave good information about the surrounding area.

As compared to the Mount St. Helen's visitor center at Silver Lake, this visitor center is FREE. Exhibits may not be as extensive as the Silver Lake visitor center, but this facility is newer, has a restaurant and a gift shop. From Oct. to Apr, only the Hoffstadt and the Silver Lake centers are open. If the the Forest Learning Center and Johnston Ridge Observatory are open, do not spend time too much time here...

If you can afford it, take the helicopter tour. It offers great views of the mountain and surrounding areas. The crew was very friendly and safety conscious. It was my daughter's first ride in a helicopter and she had a blast.

In terms of the restaurant, I would recommend eating from the hamburger stand at the Johnston Ridge Observatory. The hostess at the Visitor Center had no interest in seating us because she just had a tour group stop in so we went to the observatory and had excellent hamburgers from the stand in the parking lot.

We stopped here to have lunch on our way up to Mt St Helens. It is a charming viewpoint, where the helicopter tours depart for the mountain. There is food, but if the Cali-Club sandwich we ordered for ten buck is anything to judge by, you had best pack a loaf of bread, a salami and cheese! Untoasted, no mayo, unripe tomato and really sad! How hard is it to make a sandwich? Bacon not crispy, either---nice place, nice folks but lousy sandwich! Sorry, but that is the way it was!
