The best sundaes anywhere. Try the monthly special. Just a great place. Breakfast is good on weekends. Have ice cream on your waffle.

I tried their meals a couple of times, just average fare. The place is pretty noisy and can get pretty dingy-looking. But their ice cream is their saving grace - delicious! They are very generous in their serving sizes, so you can probably split most of their desserts.

We usually come here when we have gourmet ice cream cravings. I love the selection of flavors they have, plus I get to eat my Slimline...it's a Salad with Burger Patty on top in a Sundried tomato dressing. yummm! It's a nice place to take the family for an ice cream treat, for lunch, dinner and anything in between.

We like to go here when we are in the mood for some good, one-time, ice cream so we do not pig out on it. Nice to walk and eat it.

Fenton's has been a Northern California classic destination for decades. Come here to have a good cafe meal and finish with one of their amazing ice cream creations. This is their only full size location aside from the original in Piedmont California. Be prepared for delicious home made style ice cream in creative combinations with yummy toppings. My favorite is... More

Love their caramel on the sundaes. Fun to come for some scoops of ice cream. The onion rings are good.

Went for lunch. Food was so-so. Ice cream was good. Didn't try a fancy dessert, but they looked yummy.

I stopped in to visit Fentons twice. I orederedthere Banana Split with an order of a chilli dog and fries. I was having a serious snack attack and Fentons was the fix. Salty and Sweet, So good it felt great. You're not going to find creamy icecream like this at DQ or Coldstone. Fentons takes you back to simpler times... More

This family creamery had a strong following, we stopped there (December 2014) on the way back from the mountains for our mid-journey evening meal. Sadly, the entire experience was well below our expectations! While we waited to be seated the person in the ice cream area was both friendly and talkative, offering samples of the many flavors. The two hostesses... More
