Clean, bright, and welcoming!

Eating alone is not my favorite, but it was a nice experience when I'm at Fenton's. Went today on my way home from the Bay Area. I'd been a long time ago and meant to order the crab melt. Today, it was mine. Sweet pickle slices, toasted sourdough, fresh produce, sweet crab with monterey jack... read more

Service personnel very good. Food was fine, preferred the Chili Dog over the Aloha Burger. No room for dessert. It was just TOO noisy for us. And there weren't that many kids, mostly older folks. Couldn't hear myself talking, much less than the person across from me. Don't know if it's the acoustics, but it's definitely needs help in this... More

Went here for some ice cream with friends. They had a huge choice and the staff were nice and friendly. Everyone seemed happy with their orders and the prices were pretty good as well

Fenton's serves some nice ice cream and ice cream dishes and the servers are helpful. But I am afraid everything I have tried on the regular food menu is not good. No, I'm sorry, it's just without any good feature. The ingredients are poor, the preparation is mediocre to say the best you can about it, and the presentation is... More

great place to experience an old fashioned sundae. Great place for the whole family. The breakfasts are tasty, too.

Fentons is a real fit if you are into a 1950-60s ice cream - hamburger shop experience. Kids love the place. Food is good with heavenly desserts. Not a quite place. Lots of noise. Large cafeteria noise. Acoustics problem along with lots of kids?

If you want an old fashioned sundae with real ice cream this is the place to go. If you are on a diet you might want to stay away. This is the real deal to desert, plus the regular food is awesome too

Everything about Fenton's was wonderful except for the dog thing. First off, we like well-behaved dogs. The service was great out on the patio, the ice cream was tasty, the salad and sandwiches were super, the weather perfect. What was NOT good was a group of six people who arrived and who had a foo-foo little white dog at their... More

Same chain as in Oakland but not quite as loud (as the Oakland restaurant). But since it is embedded in the Nut Tree shopping center, it attracts a lot of traffic on the weekend. The line can be 20-25 people long for the to-go cones (usually because to get seated will take longer). There is a really good frozen yogurt... More
