I have been visiting Fentons Creamery for more than fifty years, and I am always happy to do so. Fentons simply has great ice cream (my favorite is toasted almond), and how can anyone not be happy eating great ice cream. Fentons is noisy in a wonderful way, since the people filling the restaurant are almost always engaged in happy... More

I was really looking forward to eating here because of all the reviews on TA. The experience did not disappoint. We got there at around 11:30 and there was no wait. The service was good and the food was just as advertised. We all got sandwiches and they were all delicious. The Pastrami Ruben Sandwich was amazing. We almost didn't... More

Excellent choices and Ice cream options! "Umbrelled" seating outdoors. Line moves efficiently and quickly --go in even if there is a line! You wont be surprised :-) I Love this Piedmont Area---soo cool!

My family and I had lunch at Fentons today. I had a hotdog and everyone else had either a salad or a slider. The food was excellent and my desert sundae was a marvelous experience served bursting out of the glass it came in with good ice cream and really fabulous marshmallow and chocolate sauce topped with whipped cream and...

Fenton's Creamery and Restaurant Oakland is worth a visit for the crab sandwiches and to indulge yourself in icecream galore. Enjoy!

Crab Sandwich or a Black and Tan? Tough decision to make choices with such a variety of Delicious things. At any rate, try your favorite ice cream! Go for an early lunch. Remember this Is a popular location. Parking is very limited, so you may need to calculate a little walking time. Good prices and friendly service.

So, we had to wait a little bit in line, to order a milk shake. But, it was worth the wait. It was very good. The staff are very energetic and friendly. You can sample taste the ice cream before you choose to buy. They have a couple locations, each equally as good.

I don't go to Fentons for the food, service, or fung shui atmosphere. I go for the ICECREAM! : P And you should go for this hodgepodge of goodness too.... Chocolate and macadamia nut ice cream (literally macadamia nuts in every single bite) lay the foundation. Between layers of caramel and hot fudge. It's all topped with whipped cream, nuts,... More

My grandmother used to live two blocks away and we would always ask to go at least once during our summer visits. Thirty years have passed since my last visit. This past week I had the opportunity to end the drought. We arrived at dinner time and not wanting to sacrifice too much stomach space I had a bowl of... More
