Everyone will tell you this is the place to go. The ice cream is good but I think it's more about the experience.

They have good ice cream and it is worth a visit. It is not he best I have ever had and they really are getting more into soft serve ice cream now. There are better options but they do keep a nice store and inviting environment.

We've been through Ogden a couple of times on our travels and always enjoy stopping here. The Farr Better Ice Cream is worth it, all by itself. Tons of flavors, HUGE servings and great prices. Staff is friendly and handles the crush of people on a hot summer day well. Rocky Road and Peppermint Stick were great on this stop.

I've eaten Farr's Ice cream all my life, and it's consistent in being awesome! The chocolate chip cookie dough is my favorite.

Farrs is a perfect little ice cream parlor, offering so many interesting and delicious flavors of ice cream. We tried 3: Burnt Almond Fudge, Strawberry, and Rocky Road. All were delicious, creamy and fresh. Will definitely try a hot fudge sundae with peppermint stick ice cream on our next visit.

Great ice cream! Great Value! Great Selection! This is a tried and true ice cream shop with more flavors than you can think of. The atmosphere is always loud and busy. Be sure to take a number when you walk in. The outdoor tables provide a spot to enjoy your cone, or cup, while taking in the beauty of the... More

This is one of the coolest Ice Cream places I've been to (no pun intended). It is small and vintage. Their service is outstanding. They have counter service with tables and chairs inside and out. And don't forget their ice cream. It is delicious with many flavors to chose from! This is a fun place to come for a date... More
