I'll be honest, I went in expecting great cheese samples and was disappointed. Staff were not friendly and looked bored, didn't ask if I needed anything even when I was standing right up at the cheese counter for a couple of minutes. Samples of things like mustard and sauces throughout but hadn't been refreshed for what appeared to be a... More

This is a favorite stop of ours at the Coast. We recently ate lunch here and it was fantastic.They serve sandwiches, fresh made salads, chowder and other soups. The wine tasting area is really fun to with lots of Oregon & Washington wines to sample. The staff here are always friendly and helpful. Can't wait to visit again.

We enjoyed perusing the gift shop and sampling a few tasty treats. However, the Brie Cheese is the real reason to come here. It is very high quality, and a good value.

Although the petting zoo is slim this time of year there are still myriad birds (Peacocks, Guinea Hens, Chickens) to meet. The food is fantastic. Personal favorites are a Blue a Heron Classic (Yes, this involves Brie).... Tortellini salad... And Superfood salad, They also make amazing soups. Food aside, staff are friendly and sweet that makes this a good place... More

Can't say enough good things about this place. The food is made fresh daily and they have a wine bar. We got some sort of combo of sandwich, soup and salad. delicious! They also have an extensive gift shop, petting zoo, and offer cheeses from all over the world.

every soup and salad I have tried has been gourmet. you will not be disappointed. There are also a number of samples of products they sell available too, which can be fun, things like dips, jellies etc.

The Blue Heron Cheese Factory is often overlooked in favor of the Tillamook Cheese Factory. They are both different from each other and should both be visited. The Blue Heron has a barnyard full of animals and fowl to see on your way in and out. The kids of all ages love it. Inside is a shop full of jams,... More

This is a bustling little store that offers free cheese tastings and has a large selection of gourmet foods. The pepper brie was outstanding! There is a ton to see in this store and all kinds of foodie delights from fresh cheeses to packaged dips and bottles and jars of jams and spreads and condiments galore. The dill mustard was... More

The selection of delectibles was awesome. Service at the wine bar was not good. Uninterested and comically slow. Decent selection of northwest wine.

I was stuck in the traffic going into the Tillamook Cheese Factory and I noticed this place on the side of the road that seemed to be a combination farm and store. I made a right into the unpaved parking lot, hoping for the best but expecting the worst. The store itself is quite large and had many places where... More
