The customer service at this place is terrible and yet because of its reputation and location, there is always a trickle of customers. The ice cream itself is okay, but not on the level of Haagen-Dazs. So you need to supplement the average taste with...More

Unfortunately, on a hot evening, their air conditioner was broken. Farrell's is a loud restaurant. Our waiter was a lot off fun. The food was average. But the most important part was the ice cream. That was very good.

Very loud, not so good for holding a conversation. Fun to see candy and items from yesteryear, Food was just average, nothing spectacular. Ice Cream sundaes were great!

I brought my Girl Scout troop to Farrells for an end of the year party. The food was good and reasonably priced (kid's menu $6!). We ordered "The Zoo" and it was HUGE! We weren't able to finish it and gave it to some friends...More

We were greeted by very energetic employees and seated quickly. The place was hopping with birthday parties and celebrations and we enjoyed the atmosphere - lots of signing and dancing happening from the employees. The burgers and fries were good and we are happy that...More

We really enjoyed lunch at Farrell's. The atmosphere was a lot of fun, the food was fine, and the ice cream was excellent! Worth a try if you are in the area.

This is the only Farrell's that is like the original of the 1960's and70's. Large menu selection of good food and amazing ice cream. Sure, it is noisy and raucous, but that is Farrell's. Bells and drums and singing to celebrate birthdays and other occasions....More

Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour is a fun place to celebrate a birthday. It is fun to listen to the show that the servers put on for the many birthdays happening in the Parlour. I had a simple single dip hot fudge sundae, and it was...More

They run around with a large bowl of ice cream and have a big drum they hit. Not sure about the song you're referring to.

Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour Restaurant is back! Farrell's is the place to bring family and friends and celebrate life's events. Birthday, Anniversaries, Promotions, Winning, Good Grades, even Pottie Training are made extra special by the staff at Farrell's. It's not only entertaining, it's interactive. It's whacky, it's zany, it's more fun than any other place. Not only great food, but the ice cream treats range from a single scoop to 6 pounds sundaes. That's why the Food Network named Farrell's Zoo super sundae its #3 Most Decadent Dessert! So if it's family fun, a date night, or a celebration, think Farrell's Ice Cream Parlours. "Old Time Fun for A New Generation"
