  • "We arrived after a night of lasertag with a group of friends. The girls shared a ZOO and we had a great time. The servers were very friendly and the ice cream was very good. They made it a special time for us and we will definitely return. Thanks Farrell's staff..."

  • "We had a great experience celebrating our daughter's birthday! For an ice cream place, the salads were gourmet quality, and the kids loved the kids meals and ice cream! The service was really good, and the staff responded professionally and securely we left our credit card in the restaurant. It is a loud experience, but a very high energy atmosphere. Overall, a great visit. We will return!"

  • "I'm all for energetic restaurants for kids, but this was out of control. It took us 1 hour from the time we were seated to getting our food. Then, my chicken burger was served to me with a beef party. But I was so hungry, I are it anyway! Portions for kids were enormous and I wish the server would have told us that for our 2 and 4 year old. Then, it took another 30 minutes for the happy birthday song to come to our table. So...2 hours to sit in there with a 2 and 4 year old??!! I don't think we will be going back for a long time. At least they had adult drinks!"

  • "Expect kids, songs, and calling attention to special occasions. Service was hospitable, food was very good, and a built in excuse to have dessert. Had a reserved table but arrived early. Was seated prior to our reserved time anyway. Waitress showed an interest in us having a good time and being assured we enjoyed our food. Will surely return when in the area just because."

  • "We held my daughter's 10th birthday here. We opted not to reserve the private room, but they still put a long table together for us for our party of 20. Our waiter was great and handled the chatty girls' orders well. The restaurant even let us bring our own cake, provided we ordered ice cream to go with it. My daughter received a huge ice cream sundae (free) for her birthday. The kids ordered from the kids' menu which has a great selection. This is a fun, but very noisy place so if you don't like noise, bring ear plugs. The staff is extremely enthusiastic when it comes to banging on their drums, blowing whistles and singing happy birthday songs! It's the perfect place to celebrate a birthday with a group of friends."

  • "Great place for a birthday bash! You get a unique song & dance with a free birthday sundae. Bright cheerful atmosphere. Loud too. I wouldn't recommend ordering the patty melt. The bread is a brown swirl bread & it was grilled and looked really burnt, tastes a lot better on rye bread. The Gastronicaldelicatessenepicureans Delights is delish. The waiter even makes an announcement when bringing this to your table. Have fun! Basically paying for flair."

  • "Must love noise! Was fun for a while but eventually my 2 and 5 year old were covering their ears and the 2 year old started crying. Food is ok, go for the ice cream!!! We save this place for rewards for the kids, but lately they have been preferring rubys. It's good to give the ears a break! Gotta hand it to the servers though, it's gotta be hard to be "on" all day. Very entertaining."

  • "We just want some ice cream after dinner for my husband's birthday. We sit for long time and no one come to take our order, maybe a good 15 min. They were busy to play around with each other cause it was someone's last day at work. They totally ignored us and let us wait for long time."

  • "We came here for our son's 8th birthday. For hamburgers and sandwiches, the wait for service wS atrocious. In his words, "I wish they would spend less time singing and cheering, and more time cooking the food and serving it." This is our second time at this place and both times, our food experience was equally the same: slow service in an overly noisy setting. The cheering (maybe toned down just a little) is great if good food in a timely fashion is still happening."

  • "When we got there it was only us and another table. As we were getting seated at 4pm, we passed 3 tables that were filthy full of food from prior diner's and fries all over the floor. We got seated and our server was friendly but VERY unattentive to our table as he was talking to another couple at the ice cream bar. i had to flag him over to take food order. Our server did do a birthday song for my daughter and brought out a desert. It then took our server another lenghthy amount of time to drop the check which I once again had to flag him over. It just seems that because the restaurant was so empty, I shouldn't have to wait around for our order to be taken and check to be dropped."

  • "Took our son there for 3rd bday celebration. Great salads, burgers, and desserts and a good kid's menu. The horn was a little annoying but the singing was energetic and lively. My son was startled (and so were the adults)and plugged his ears every time they blew that darn annoying horn. We can do without the horn. Everything else was fantastic!"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Not a place to go with little kids or anyone wanting to have conversations with people in your party. The waiters are pretty entertaining but all the birthdays, drums, loud whistles are a bit much. The worst was the loud screaming coming from a table of tween girls. When we spoke to the manager they told us there was nothing they could do about it. We will never eat here again."

  • "Our server, Nick, was incredible! He had a lot of energy and made our 5-year old's birthday special! The kids thought he was great! There was another guy with him who also contributed to a wonderful experience, but we didn't get his name. "

  • "Farrell's is our family tradition for birthday dinners. The staff is friendly and energetic. We've never experienced anything less of a delicious meal and fun songs and entertainment for the kids. They offer beers on tap for adults and an array of desserts that are sized for sharing. The food is your standard american flare with sandwiches, hamburgers and fries. "

  • "Food took forever to get. Waitress couldn't handle her tables. When we finally got our food the order wasn't right. It took forever before she came back to tell her... Then my sons food was cold he ordered a BBQ bacon burger (they forgot to put BBQ sauce on it) we told two people and never got it. ... Finally they took it back to have it re-heated. We had no napkins ... Everything took a long time to get. Not sure we will ever come back. The food was really good. "

  • "This place is known for loud celebrations. It seemed every 5 minutes a siren would sound, a drum would beat, and the staff would break into some original birthday song. It was very fun. The only complaint would be the wait. "

  • "As soon as we walked in we were seated and everything went smooth!! We had a 16th surprise party for my son Jonathan!! He sure was surprised!!! He is real shy and Hayward was great to him. My son Jon actually got up and danced...he had a blast!!! Hayward worked his magic and was actually able to get my son to come out of his shell...that is a big deal...if you know my son. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and then had ice cream. All very good!!! Fun was had by all! We will definitely be visiting again soon!! Thank you for making my son's 16th Birthday a fun and memorable night!!!"

  • "The wife had been waxing nostalgic about her childhood visits to Farrell's and consuming the "zoo" on her birthday. Ordered some lunch so that we could justify consuming mass quantities of ice cream because we had "real food" first. We seriously contemplated just ordering the Zoo and skipping the real food. The wife had a nice looking salad, the kids hot dog w/ fries and I the chili cheese, the "small" was plentiful. The ice cream: The kids each had a big single scoop, the wife had a basic sundae - I had the brownie hot fudge sundae. Yum! Our server Sam had a great personality and was attentive to our needs. The singing and fanfare make this a great place for birthdays (especially kid's) "

  • "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!"
