    I remember this spot from the 80s. I'm glad it's back and I'm glad that it's still loud. Good food and great ambiance. A must if you have children... or you are a child at heart.

    My hula girl sandwich was a waste of money . The Irish fried were just okay . Friend said the ahi tuna salad was tasty but I personally can't say if it was good

    Very classy decor. Ice cream is classy yet not wow. Just decent, not so special. To-go is quicker than eat-in.

    I love Farrell's, but there is only 2 of us, we were second in line and we're going on 35 minutes. I think next time we should make reservations and not just show up.

    Plan ahead Or make reservations cause the line is long to get in! Try the Oreo bliss! The pig trough is popular if you have an appetite for banana splits. (It's 2 in one!)

    You have to monitor the people in the front. They get confused and your wait can become longer. Not the best attitude when they are in the wrong.

    Ice cream take out was extemely understaffed. Waited about 40 mins to order then another 20 to get ice cream. However, the strawberry ice cream is delicious...

    Come early unless you want to stand in line. Rolling 20's feel inside. Ask for a full menu of ice cream flavors. There are many that are unlisted.

    Reservation are a good idea. Meals big enough to share. And hey if you have to wait take turns in line and walk the stores. Don't come with a frown...grouchy grovers

    Incredibly understaffed. Even the takeout line took an hour. There's plenty of room for my employees in there. Better be worth the wait.

    Don't come here if the idea of screaming kids and having servers sing a pig song about you is upsetting. Also, if you're looking for a quiet spot, forget this place. Ice cream isn't worth the ambiance

    Very, very loud. Every child in OC must be having a birthday today. We did get right in. They should consider having an "adults only" night from time to time.

    Noisy noisy noisy, but Fantastic atmosphere if you're looking for a night out with that special one. Come here for a conversation and good time, not the food. Thought they serve all 3.

    This place needs to calm down. Maybe the servers should only scream once every hour instead on once every five minutes. Annoying.

    Like Dan W we did all the same things upon arrival. In fact 2 tables from him. The manager really was unhelpful. Took forever for our food as well. Kitchen needs to figure out how to deal with open

    Showed up at 10:30, they opened at 11:00, we sat down at 11:15, didn't get our food until 12:45, both orders were screwed up, and the manager argued with me about substituting a $4 dessert.

    Go somewhere else. It's incessantly noisy, the service is awful and the ice cream is alright, but hardly worth tolerating the rest of the absurdity.

    Come for the experience, not for the food. I think because they just opened, there is some hiccups that need to be worked out. Service is great, but no beer or wine yet. Ice Cream was fabulous!
