.

The Lake Oswego Ice Creamery or as most people will always know it as the Tillamook Ice Creamery, has been a family oriented burger and shake joint for over twenty five years.

It is a small establishment with eight tables inside and eight patio tables that are always open to customers to sit and enjoy their ice cream or to-go orders, but may or may not be open for patio service depending on weather and available staff.

A generally busy and popular restaurant since its conception, the restaurant has always been a local hot spot for junior high to high school aged kids. Its busiest hours are unpredictable but expect to wait, patiently, during the weekend breakfast hours and summer months when the store is sometimes swamped with hungry families.

DON'T go here if you expect to have some swanky dining experience!This is a great burger and shake joint with a very family friendly environment, NOT a place for those who don't like kids, busy loud environments, and waiting a reasonable amount of time for food when the staff are being overrun with customers.

Rules for the Road:
1. WAIT TO BE SEATED! Sign in for a table using the available sign in board. This will ensure a good dining experience for you and everyone around you. :)

2. Do ask the servers what they might recommend as the staff are knowledgeable and friendly.

3. Do come for breakfast, it is the best offering the store has besides the delicious and creamy Tillamook Ice Cream.

4. Do expect to pay ten to fifteen dollars an adult (meal and drink or dessert) and DO order off kids menu it is a fantastic deal!

Three small scoops jammed in a bowl with about 1/3 banana chopped into pieces with three sauces poured on top of each other.
I commented that was an interesting way to serve a banana split and was told that because the to-go bowls are small that's the only way they can serve them.
At least it was only $5.50 each. Not a big rip off, but I'm not into three sauces mixed on top of three different ice creams stacked in a bowl. And after all, why order a banana split if all you're going to get is a portion of a chopped up banana.
We won't make that mistake again.

With it's easy location parking is made simple. Great area in a cute, small block of shopping across the street. Surrounding areas have shopping as well. This creamery is a delight, however the price for ice cream is over the top, probably to pay high rent. The food should be kept out as it is greasy and on the fatty side. They don't offer a healthy alternative for those that watch their waist. The service is quite slow and if you don't review your bill carefully, chances are you were charged incorrectly. Have been many times and each time we were billed more than what should have been. So with that in mind, make sure you check your tab carefully as to avoid over paying. The staff is not friendly nor do they smile. As a long time reviewer, I would suggest making this your rounds of ice cream only. That is the one reliable staple in this corner side creamery.

The interior resembles a 60's ice cream soda shop and is small. There is often a wait for a table but they do take out as well. The burgers are good and I always go for the onion rings. But what they really excel at are milkshakes and ice cream desserts.

This place is amazing!
All the kids/teens go there on the weekends and just all the time
The food is really good although it isnt the best
Ice cream is really good here and the service is really good.

It just really depends when you go there because it's busy most of the time. It's worth the wait though. I've been there more than 50 times since ive moved here and I've never waited more than 15 minutes for a table!

I hate it when my kids want to go to Oswego Ice Cream. I love the ice cream, I hate the serice and the food is nothing to sing about.

I waited over 45 minutes for a table then another half hour for service. It is almost impossible to keep my kids from climbing the walls.

Next time I am sending them with my wife.

The ice cream is stupendous, although the service at the ice cream counter is always slow. Don't bother eating off the rest of the menu - it's overpriced diner food, average-quality at best.

Pros: Ice Cream

Cons: Front door causes huge windy drafts for people sitting nearby

Tillamook makes the best ice cream as we all know. However, this place is tiny and crowded. They don't have a line or any organization for ordering- if you want to order you'd better have sharp elbows and quick feet. And make your kids wait outside for their own safety.

I love Tillamook ice cream. So having a restaurant near my home is a real treat. I've been there a number of times. And have never had a bad experience. They have great burgers and my husband swears they make the best milkshakes.

This is our family's favorite ice cream anywhere. It is extra creamy, not too sweet, and there are lots of great flavors. Especially good: Huckleberry Hype, Marionberry Pie, Oregon Black Cherry, Coffee Almond Fudge, French Silk, Sweet Carmel Cream, Vanilla Bean and my daughter loves Pumpkin.

This is the ice cream of the Gods. Ok, yes the food is pretty poor, but the ICE CREAM IS UNREAL!
If I could find a way to eat ice cream for every meal and not get fat I would get a job here and sneal bites all day long.
If it wouldn't be frowned upon I'd carry scoops in my pockets to have Tillamook icecream to snack on all day.
Simply wonderful!

Pros: Ice cream, You scream, we all scream

A refreshing and delicious sin to walk in order any flavor of Tillamook ice cream scooped onto a cone or pilled into a bowl! Nothing here in Oregon says summer quite like it and if you have children you will instantly be crowned Parent Of the Year by simply spending close to three dollars per child and watching(not hearing)them lick away like thirsty puppies led to fresh spring water. The texture radiant and the flavor simply capturing, the atmosphere wonderful if not pulled out the door by the surrounding window shopping.

Tillamook is by far Oregon's #1 ice cream. It doesn't matter if it's Vanilla, Brown Cow, or Chocolate Peanut Butter, you haven't had the Oregon experience till you have gone to Tillamook and had some on a cone (it's ok to buy it at the store when you're not up for the drive). :) Anyone who says otherwise is just CRAZY.

Tillamook simply has a reputation for great ice cream, so there's only one thing I can add: You've gotta try it! Definitely among the best ice creams I've had...and such creative flavors!

Tremendous selection & delicious ice cream - how can you not find a flavor to fit you mood? The branch in Lake Oswego is always crowded though. Hard to navigate in and out.

The ice cream and shakes are outstanding. The best I've eaten, but the rest of the menu is just ok. Typical burger joint, not great not bad.
Taking just the ice cream into account- run there - now!
