  • "It used to be better all around but it's still a blast for birthdays. Pig Trough is the only way to go."

  • "Going to Farrells to celebrate our birthdays has become a tradition for my granddaughter and myself. We have been doing this for years now. Ava just turned 7 and I turned 73. We invite the family - ususally 12 to 20 attend. Farrell's is great place for a celebration. Staff is great! They make it so much fun that you cannot help but join along and enjoy yourself. We hope to see you next year at the same time! Oh, and yes, using the Open Table reservation was so easy and worked out great to send invites to everyone."

  • "My daughter celebrated her 3rd birthday at Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour in Mission Viejo. That was 3 years ago. We just celebrated her 6th birthday this past weekend, and to no one's surprise she asked to have her celebration at the Farrell's in Mission Viejo again. My younger daughter also wanted to celebrate her 3rd birthday at Farrell's! I think it is safe to say that our family has found a perfect spot for birthday celebrations. That's not to say that we don't visit Farrell's on other days of the year, because with their delicious food, enthusiastic servers, and festive environment they are ideal for lunch or dinner anytime you want an instant mood boost. We have only good things to report as patrons of the MV Farrell's!"

  • "We took our 6 year old here to celebrate his birthday. Everyone in this packed restaurant was here for some celebration. Almost every 30 seconds, the waiting staff belted out another speech and song. The kids loved it and it was certainly energetic and crazy, but I could not take much more noise! It's a perfect restaurant for kids to celebrate something, but way too crazy for a relaxing evening."

  • "The food is the main reason for my fair review. It definitely left something to be desired. My grilled cheese was cold and pretty mediocre and the Adult Mac & Cheese was so awful we didn't eat it. Luckily the management was obliged and took it off our bill.The burgers ordered at the table seemed to be the best food you could get as there were no complaints there. Overall it was so noisy it was hard to talk to eachother and dinner was blah, ice cream is quite good. Kids enjoyed this part. Next time we will only order dessert."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "We expected "fun and laughter" since it is an ice cream parlor but did not expect it to be so noisy that we couldn't even talk to each other. We only went for ice cream and still had to wait 30 minutes to receive our order. When it did come the order was incorrect and most of the ice cream was melted. We didn't complain at the time because we just wanted to get out of there."

  • "You go here for fatty food which was very delicious and the dessert options! It's very loud, extremely. High energy. Too much for me on most accounts unless I'm here for a kids birthday. It's attached to the Mission Viejo Mall so you have Build a Bear etc. I think for what it is, it is a great place. We all had a fun time from 2years to 70years old. It was a hit!"

  • "Noisy & raucous is an exaggeration. It was deafening. We could hardly hear each other. My father tore his napkin in half to fashion ear plugs. We went to Farrell's to celebrate my son's 24th birthday and, though he asked our waiter not to, the restaurant staff made a huge fuss singing happy birthday. Bonus was a free hot fudge sundae. We went there for ice cream and fun and both were as advertised. Lots of choices even a low calorie sundae. Waiter was friendly and efficient. Will recommend as fun birthday destination."

  • "We went to Farrell's to celebrate my daughter's 15th birthday. There were about 10 of us. Everyone in the group found something they loved on the menu for dinner and then for dessert. The staff was friendly and helpful and very enthusiastic aboit celebrating with each table in the restaurant. It was a very loud restaurant but the noise was all part of what seemed like an ongoing celebration the entire night."

  • "We went to Farrell's Mission Viejo Mall for our daughters 7th birthday. The had a great time and enjoyed ordering their favorite ice cream. My daughter loved her birthday song. My husband had a hard time with the noise level..but it was all part of the experience. Our servicer was not the best but there were other servers willing help our table!!! Great place for a birthday."

  • "A little loud for my taste, but the kids seemed to enjoy the hoopla celebrations with all the birthdays around us. Food was good, but they had the standard favorites from my kids - pizza and mac 'n cheese ... and of course, ice-cream. The Mission Viejo location was so much better than the Brea location with regards to the wait/long line. I was able to reserve a table online - and we got in pretty much on time."

  • "Went we for my daughters Birthday lunch with some of her friends, the food took ages to arrive, then not enough food arrived for the kids party so we then had to wait for more food to arrive - eventually the adults food arrived whilst kids on ice-cream!! Plus side our server was very nice and helpful but I felt they just had too many customers for the staff on. Super loud but knew that already - a fun place but not if your in a hurray, our lunch took 3 hours!"

  • "The nightmare started as soon as we walked into restaurant. A snotty brat hostess with a very BAD attitude rudely told us to be patient as she was chatting with her girlfriends that stopped by the restaurant. Other guests waiting to be seated in the open tables. I asked her a second time why we were all standing at hostess counter when there was a large amount of tables and she called me "missy" and to me she was busy. After waiting too long we were seated at a table and only given 2 menus and we needed 5. She told us she would look for 3 more and bring to us. After sharing our / menus and ordering dinner she brought the 3 menus 10 minutes before our food arrived!!!"

  • "I was there with my son and grandson for my grandson's birthday. We had a good time, but the waiter brought out my son and grandson's food, 10 minutes before I recieved my food, so they were almost done eating by the time I got my food. Since there was only three of us and the restaurant was not very crowded, I don't know why that happened. They handled it well though, the manager did not charge me for my salad, but it still put a little bit of a dampner on the occasion for me. When the waiter finally brought my salad out, I noted that it had been 10 minutes since they said it would be right out. His reply was, yes I know but it looks nice and fresh. That just made me more iritated. A simple "I'm sorry that happend", would have been better"

  • "Food was ok. Ice cream was good. But service was slow. Arrived at 6:15 PM, when finally finished we left at 8:15. Spent a lot of time sitting and waiting for the waitress to come by."

  • "They do a great job of entertaining kids and making it a fun environment for all ages. Our service was a bit slow, but in their defense, it was a Sunday and there were a ton of people in there. Our server was awesome and attentive, as much as she could be with her other tables, who were VERY needy. At the end of our meal, the manager comped our ice cream! We never complained or even mentioned the slow service, because we understood how busy it was.... but they just offered... so awesome! Would definitely recommend Farrell's for a birthday. They make it really memorable and the food is great.. especially the ice cream!!"

  • "My fiance wanted a Sundae at Farrell's for his 59th birthday, so that's what he got! The Farrell's crew were full of energy and very talented. My boyfriend and I shared a French dip sandwich, which came with an ample serving of french fries. The sandwich was very good. I also had my boyfriend's complimentary sundae with sugar-free vanilla ice cream because he ordered a larger Sundae. We enjoyed every bite. I was impressed with the sugar-free ice cream; it tasted like the real thing!"

  • "We went to Farrell's for lunch during OC Restaurant Week and we're glad we did. The burgers are huge and delicious. Their chocolate shake is fresh and yummy. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We saw that there were many groups with kids there for their birthdays. Farrell's staff does a great job of celebrating them."

  • "I love sharing Farrell's with my kids and knowing that they will have the same wonderful memories of birthdays spent there that I do. The food is very good and, of course, the ice cream is decadent. The noise level can get crazy, but it adds to the experience for the kids."

  • "This is a great place for birthdays because it is very energetic. Staff sings for every birthday, run around restaurant with ice cream, etc. if you would like to hear what the people across from you are saying without shouting this may not be the place, but it is a fun environment. Food was good and ice cream was great! Btw, make a reservation. Line is long without one!"

  • "My server was very friendly and nice. My issue was when we got there we were the only one there. Then 2 additional tables showed up. Oddly they were all served both appetizers and entrees before ours.Our appetizer was the hill of garlic fries. And she hardly came back to our table. Not to mention one of our orders were wrong?"

They treated him specially, and he enjoyed all of the attention that he was given for his special day. All of the kids had a good time, and the ice cream is delicious!"

  • "Everyone enjoyed their food from the kids (off the kids' menu) to the adults, which we ordered their tasty huge salads, portobello mushroom burger, and reuben. We also enjoyed the desserts, although my son was disappointed the chocolate brownie (mud pie) was no longer on the menu. He enjoyed the other brownie dessert though. Our waiter was soft spoken, but animated when it came to leading the restaurant in Happy Birthday."

  • "Our waitress needs additional training. She started off well; friendly and engaging. Unfortunately she did not take notice that we were done eating and were ready for our check. We waited patiently, looked around for another employee to ask for our waitress, but did not locate one. I had to get up, go over to where she was across the room, to ask for check. (Low customer volume this evening). Nothing ruins a dinner more than having a finished meal, used dishes on the table, and a tired child wanting to go home. Training is needed to inform your employees that when the customer is ready to go home that now is not the time to engage in a conversation. A polite thank you for coming would have been appropriate"
