Someone once wrote: "If I knew I was going to get this old I would have eaten more ice cream." It is always a treat to invite grandchildren to feast on Fentons ice cream.

It's delicious. You must have it. If you are really feeling like a kid, sit outside and count red and blue cars like Russell and Mr. Frederickson. Good stuff here.

This place looks better than the movie. Tons of ice cream anyway you want it! Also has diner food. But you're really here to treat yourself... I mean your kid to some ice cream. Lots of different sundaes on the menu and any topping you want. Great place for kids!

I cannot drive through or near Oakland without visiting this favorite childhood spot! The staff is friendly, the dessert is divine! You must go here.

Bring your appetite if you order one of their signature ice cream treats. I made the mistake of ordering a sandwich and almost couldn't finish my sundae.

Love the atmosphere...a hustle and bustle of families and friends all having a great time. The ice cream is fantastic- love the create-your-own...mint ice cream, strawberry ice cream, hot caramel is my pick!

It had been a couple years since I have been back to Fentons (too much temptation!) but recently attended a relative's bday party here. It's nice to know some places don't change too much, especially when the ice cream and service have usually been great over the years. One change is a nice little seating area outside for those who... More

A little pricey but a very special place. Toasted almond ice cream with hot fudge will make you smile for days to come. Famous crab salad sandwich yummy Beyond belief.

Excellent quality ice cream. Always a wait to get in and be served. Pricey. Try to be seated in the back room if you have a group.

We went for Ice Cream althought they have a large food menu. They make their ice cream on the premises. Lots of selections and good ice cream
