    Self guided tours of the factory followed by a few samples. My favorite was the Swiss. We also grabbed two scoops of strawberry ice cream before hitting the road again.

    Quite the attraction! They can get up to 35,000 people a day! Cheesy self guided tour of the cheese making process ending with free samples and a cafe with grilled cheeses and ice cream. Great stop!

    Amazing deep fried cheese curds (don't pass these up). The grilled cheese sandwiches are very tasty. The ice cream portions are huge! Pictured is double scoop waffle cup.

    The Tillamook cheese factory has a very quaint cafe serving you grilled cheese, wonderful burgers, deep fried cheese curds, and a nice variety of other things. Reasonably priced, a must stop!

    Neat free tour and free samples, but you can get the cheese cheaper at your local grocery store. The Mac and Cheese tastes like the same Mac and cheese from The Old Country Buffet.

    Really nice to see how cheese is made and I love the free samples and selections of cheese in the store, but I have to say—I sort of feel bad for the workers.

    A dairy cooperative they use milk from 105 local farmers. The on-site cheese shop sells neatly stacked “loafs” of their award-winning cheddar & squeaky cheese curds

    Make sure to eat a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup at the café. Come after noon when it's a little less busy.

    Order the Centennial grilled cheese! Pair it with the tomato soup or a fresh salad. Highly recommend!

    This is always a stop on our trip along the Oregon coast. Love the ice cream and my favorite is the soft caramels at the check out stands.

    Head down the road towards Bay City about three miles to the Tillamook country smoker for fantastic beef stick, jerky and 2 ft long pepperoni. Cheaper than the cheese factory by nearly half!!!
  • Linnae A.
    Try the Squeeky Cheese and the Smoked Cheddar! And, don't forget to get some ice cream while you're there! You'll be glad you did!

    Crazy busy. There are lots of little things to take home with you as well as cheese. Watch the assembly line and the way they keep it moving.

    They also sell small-batch products from Oregon Cheese Guild members, like Willamette Valley Havarti and Rogue Creamery Oregon Blue

    The best Ice Cream in Oregon, huge variety. Make sure to get some cheese curds "squeaky cheese" as well.

    The Best Cheese on the West Coast!!! Go on the Tour and get as many Cheese Samples as possible! Also get the Incredible Ice Cream if you have time.
  • Robin T.
    You have to have an ice cream. Large size scoops. Take the self guided tour and try the cheese samples.
  • Tracey .
    Beware long long lines during Spring Break, otherwise enjoy all of the cheese and watch the factory cheeses upstairs.

    I hate crowded places and this is a crowded place. Cool to see the cheese slicing/packaging area though.

    The smell can be overpowering, but the ice cream and cheese and silly gift shop make it all worth it.

    Lots of kids and germs on the sample bar. Cheese is the pretty standard processed kind you find anywhere.

    Fascinating story. Do the tour. Sample the wares. Shop around. But skip the cafe. Totally meh. Make meal out of ice cream and cheese instead.

    Be sure to check out the different varieties of cheeses they carry here you can't get in regular stores.
  • Khrystal K. D.
    Watch the different parts of the cheese making process. Buy cheese slices cheap. Make sure you get some ice cream before you leave.

    Good place to spend a weekend! Good ice cream and an even better drive through the forest to get here

    Everything is cheaper at local stores. Place is just a tourist trap, much of the product isn't even manufactured in Tillamook any more. Save your time and money and explore the forest or the beach.

    Service was fast, only complaint: No Tomato Soup for grilled cheese! They do have TOTS, however!

    On busy days, skip the ice cream line downstairs and go upstairs. Second shop is not nearly as busy.

    if you want ice cream (you should) -- go upstairs to the observation area. MUCH shorter line.
