Hi, guys! Thanks for visiting my blog again. Today, I'm talking about a really cute restaurant named Farrell's. It's a retro location that evokes styles and elements from the early 20th century in the United States. It's not exactly steampunk, but Farrell's is very nostalgic and takes key elements from the early Edwardian period. I promise to leave a lot of pictures on this post, so you guys can see what's going on.
Farrell's seems to scream quaint and old fashioned. You can probably see a lot of old school lettering from the photos. The restaurant has a significant Dixieland and Ragtime feel. In fact, they played a lot of music in those specific styles. They also played a lot of a cappella quartet music.
I thought the interior was very clean and adorable with plenty of room for the guests. It's a great location for birthdays, group outings, and family meals. I saw quite a few birthday celebrations at the site. They actually give a complimentary ice cream sundae and sing funny songs for anyone who's celebrating birthdays. Farrell's is a very family oriented restaurant and that's a good thing to remember because a lot of places don't cater well to children anymore. I would recommend this site for lunch or ice cream. The menu primarily has burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, and other lunch items. Farrell's has an enormous menu of cream sundaes. It was genuinely surprising. Do you enjoy chocolate, nuts, caramel, candy bar pieces, fruit toppings, and all kinds of toppings? Fear not. This place has you covered.
I'm showing this image because the menu is just like a newspaper. It was kind of interesting. You unfold it all the way and check out whatever looks good. They also hand out post cards with other items from the menu.
They have an old fashioned soda fountain! Awesome! It's exciting for someone like me because legitimate soda fountains aren't even a part of my generation. If you take a trip to Farrell's, take advantage of the opportunity and order a specialty soda. I'm sure you'll love it.
Here's my Roy Rogers, aka Cherry Coke. I know it doesn't look like anything special, but they drizzle cherry grenadine in the drink. It gives the drink a sweeter taste with a much stronger cherry flavor than a Cherry Coke that comes from a dispenser. I love the soda fountain.
So, my lunch was basically a heart attack on a plate. I ordered a barbecue bacon burger with onion strings. The chili cheese fries were an upgrade side dish. You know what? It was super tasty. Their food is really good and I was pleasantly surprised.
Farrell's has a full service candy shop. You can pack different types of sweets and pay for them at the counter. I'm not usually a big fan of self-packing candy stores because it gets pricey, but it should certainly make people happy who have a real sweet tooth. Look at the huge variety. Chocolate, salt water taffy, sour candy, gummies, hard candy, licorice, and all kinds of stuff.
They also sell old fashioned soda pop. It's made with real cane sugar. Old school soda is totally different than the modern variety. It's much sweeter and has an aftertaste that's hard to describe. Some people love the novelty and sweet taste.
Overall, I found the restaurant very enjoyable. I would say it suits families, groups, history buffs, and people who appreciate retro or nostalgic environments. Steampunk fans would probably like it too. I think it would make a fun date for young couples. The service was really good when I attended. I'm pretty sure Farrell's is quite popular because it was really crowded. Some of my pictures probably don't look crowded, but more people came when I was there.
Here's a link to their website. You can read the full menu and find a nearby location. The website also offers details about their history, candy shop, and more.
That's all for now. If my blog post is making you feel hungry, visit Farrell's and check them out. Leave a comment if you have anything to say about my pictures and information. Have fun and I'll see you guys next week.
