Okay so things have changed, this place was always about the fun atmosphere and great deserts and attitude of the place. In recent years as there have been fewer and few left in the USA, now just a handful in Cali, the food was just okay but always looked past that for the fun atmosphere and deserts. Not anymore, thanks... More

We ate here while visiting family in the area. We waited way longer than they told us. It's an old fashioned ice cream parlor. If you have a birthday in your party they get free ice cream and a pretty loud birthday song! We heard several different birthday songs while we were there. That being said the food was really...

I was soo excited to see that Farrells was around again and I remember when I was a kid and went to the original location near the Tyler mall and how amazing it was in presentation and such. There were so many cool candies that you were not able buy else where. This new Farrells is okay. The service have... More

Took a mini staycation yesterday with the family (10/19). On our way back from the orchards I discovered that there was a Farrell's not far from us and detoured there for a family dinner. I grew up on the east coast and remember Farrell's fondly as a kid. Loud birthday celebrations, song, ginormous burgers and all kinds of sweets &... More

The location of this Farrell's is across from the hospital Kaiser. So if you are hungry it's a good place to eat after visiting someone. When we have our names they said it was a 45 minute wait (with it being a Saturday night) but we were seated within 15 minutes. Reservations are available as well and recommended especially if...

A fun night with friends to celebrate my birthday and a 4 years old birthday. Service was great. The night was busy so lots of singing going on. A fun place to celebrate whether you are 4 or 54. I had the grilled cheese unfortunately it was cold but good.

We visited for my niece's birthday and I wanted this to be as amazing as I remembered. It wasn't. The host at the front was crass and embarrassed one of the guests who came through the door by yelling that they "didn't allow any of her kind" in their restaurant. While she was clearly a friend of his, it was... More

We found this place by chance. Driving through a parking lot to kill time for an appt. I didn't know these restaurants still existed. Brought back fond memories from my childhood. Food was great, service was good pricing is moderate.
