Great ice cream and great atmosphere. Farr's ice cream is made in house and has been a staple in ogden for over 60 years. Stepping into the parlor is like stepping back into the 50's. Try the chocolate peanut butter ice cream

I loved the variety of flavors and the music that gave the place and old-timey feel. But the servers seemed overwhelmed and the store was cramped, with only about three tables to sit at. I'll definitely go again, though.

If you love ice cream, this is ice cream heaven. There are so many different flavors it is hard to choose. Farr's ice cream is an icon in the Weber valley. They have been making ice cream for more than 60 years so the quality and taste reflect their expertise. You won't be disappointed but plan extra time to go... More

Don't miss going to Farr Better Ice Cream! Besides the best ice cream in Weber County, they make party slush for big parties. This place is always crowded but they handle it quickly.
