“Burger/malt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

The best cheeseburgers and chocolate malts we've found on the west coast. The French fries orders are huge and of cooked perfectly. Been back and will go again.

“Great folks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

One of the best hamburgers, ever! Parking can be a bear, but once your engine stops, the drooling begins.

“A lilttle sarcasim goes a long way...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Well, we've been living here in beautiful Waldport for several years now but obviously we're not recognized as "locals". We got the "snub" treatment last visit. When I say last visit, that's exactly what it was. We walked in after returning from a day of shopping in Newport and had Starbucks Iced tea clear tumblers. Immediately the attitude turned. Vickie asked "is there alcohol in those cups" really? and no smile just a crappy little tude.
Ray's has just as good burgers and prices are better so we no longer darken the doors here.
Better learn to treat people a little better in these tough economic times Vickie. Bad days can't reflect in your treatment of customers.

“Old school diner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013 via mobile

I have been driving past this diner for years and decided to try it out about a year ago. If you are craving a burger with fries and a milk shake this is a great place to stop in.

“Best Hamburger in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Vickie's sits at the foot of the Waldport Bridge as you come into town from the north. Parking and seating is limited, so avoid the noon crowd. It has a walk-up window, which helps for the locals on a lunch time schedule.

You want a good hamburger? This is the place to find it. Vickie's has an old time counter feel, like the malt shops of yesteryear. Any flavor of milk shake is possible; they even make my favorite, hot fudge!!

One of the best things about this place is the owner. Vickie not only puts out a good product, she is generous to Waldport. She steps up when solicited for donations for community events like Beachcomber Days and the new Crab Derby put on by the Port of Alsea, plus many more. She gives back to community that supports her.
