We stopped here after touring the Ogden Temple during their open house before their dedication. The ice cream was good, I was personally disappointed as I really wanted black cherry ice cream. They had it but it was with chocolate chips and I don't care for chocolate. I ended up having the cherry pecan which was ok, but the cherries... More

This place looks like an old-fashioned ice cream shop. There isn't much indoor seating, but the ice cream is fabulous. We all loved our selections: chocolate peanut butter, raspberry cheesecake, cake mix, bubble gum and brownies on the moon. The cake mix has a ripple of chocolate frosting in it. This helps my conundrum of wanting the cake mix flavor... More

Great ice cream to enjoy and available in dozens of favors! This quaint store also sells replica toys from the 50s and 60s. Definitely a delicious step back in time!

Farr's ice cream is standing room only at the store we went to. The ice cream was good but not so fantastic that I have to go back immediately. Blue Bell is better!

Great nostalgic place. We love their black licorice ice cream. They also sell a lot of fun vintage candy and gifts. If you are in the mood for a treat or hard ice cream, then go here. They don't have anything other than ice cream and candy here.

I was in the shop one day with my family when I saw an awful event happening. After my amazing service, the girl that was pulled away from us before we got rang up.... she was then chewed out for the size of her scoop ( that was quite average scoop almost on the smaller size) in front of us!...

Farr Better ice cream is FAR better than any chain! With 70+ choices though, it may require more than a few minutes to make your selection. Farr is housed in the original building where the world of better ice cream began. Ice cream in various forms is available ... nothing else :) ... great for desserts, however be forewarned: expect...

I am from out of town, and wanted to get an ice cream cone. The place is Darlene and old-fashioned. The people were kind and nice. However, when I ordered my double dipped waffle cone, I was completely taken by surprise of how big the scoops were. I guess you could say it is a plus, but I was alone... More

This is truly an old fashioned ice cream parlor. They serve lots of flavors in old-style dishes. The ice cream is very tasty, and the atmosphere is just fun. There is great service--nothing to complain about! My husband, the ice cream aficionado in the family, was in heaven.

Aside from the dozens of delicious ice cream flavors and fair prices, when you go to Farrs, you feel like you time-traveled back to a more simple and happy time.
