I am going to spend my 50th birthday here, I enjoy it so. I love seeing the smiles on customer faces as the ice cream is delivered to their table. A Petite Sundae (traditional) is my very favorite thing here, but I branched out and tried a Chocolate Soda last time and will attach a photo. I usually get a... More

We had never been to Fenton's Creamery. We had heard about their Oakland operations and and when we saw one in Vacaville we decided to try it out. The ice-cream was underwhelming - we have had better ones at Baskins Robbins and many other "regular" places, at a lower price.

We stopped at Fenton's on our way home one night with a party of 10. They accommodated us with ease and, even though we arrived a half hour before close, were extremely easy to work with, including letting us do separate checks for 3 different families. The food was good (I had a Jalapeño burger, yum) and the ice cream... More

I have eaten at Fenton's a few times. Each time the food has been good. The servers were friendly and quick. The only downside is it is loud inside.

This is the place to go if you've got a hankering for ice cream, lots of ice cream, gluttonous levels of ice cream. If you always feel like you get gypped with the chintzy scoops at most places, then Fenton's will be heaven for you! On the other hand, if you like a little atmosphere with your meal, look elsewhere.... More

This has been a favorite of my family for a long time. We were excited to have them open in Vacaville. You will not be disappointed....you may have to wait....the prices seem high but wait until you get your food! Sandwiches are yummy, salads are great, and ice cream is superb. You have to try the Swiss Milk Chocolate.....my fav!

Fentons, is a little heaven in Vacaville. It is situated in the Nut Tree, right next door to Jelly Belly. Now their savoury food is really very good and it all depends on what you fancy as the Nut Tree, boasts Bourdins, Panera, a wonderful little Thai, a couple of Italians. But if you like burgers, salads and fries, you... More

I'm a senior who met two peers at this restaurant last week. We all enjoyed the visit, but were surprised to feel relief once we stepped outside into a quieter environment. All agreed that we would request outdoor seating for our next visit, in spite of the fact that we enjoyed the ice cream parlor ambience of yore. The food... More

My three brothers and I are 3rd generation Fenton Fans. My grandchildren are 5th generation. Back in the 50's our Mom would take us to the dentist in Oakland and then for lunch at Fentons after. It sure made going to the dentist a lot more desirable. Through the years we have celebrated many times at Fentons (birthdays, anniversaries, after... More

The ambiance is nice, the ice cream is just OK and presentation was unappealing. Ordered cookie topped with ice cream and they used one of those ice cream trays for a banana sundae, not sure how else to describe it. My cookie was placed into this tray so not flat and the ice cream toppled over so presentation was eh.... More
