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

The flavors are wonderful.I enjoyed talking over my favorite, and listening to the servers favorite, trying new flavors...and then choosing a new favorite. I have tried: apple, lemon, pumpkin, and all kinds of chocolates...now I have your attention!...LOL. On a date, I actually... More

The ice cream is wonderful. Big portions even though a little pricey. The food is just mediocre. You can get better food in the area. Service can be good but it is spotty. There is outdoor seating which is nice during hot weather. The inside can get pretty loud, so hard to hold a conversation

We were on our way back from Reno to San Francisco Bay area and stopped by Fentons for lunch. Service was friendly and good. I opted for a tuna sandwich and onion rings. With it, I ordered a root beer float. That root beer float had the most ice cream I have ever seen in a float. It was very... More

Seven of us dined here for lunch and ice cream afterwards. The food was very tasty but the ice cream desserts were especially spectacular! A stop here is well worth it!

The blueberry and strawberry cheesecake flavors were delicious! Portion sizes are big and prices are good. A very nice evening treat! Though we did not... More

Because I was carpooling with people who have fond memories of the original Fenton's in Oakland, we had to stop by for ice cream and lunch. Lunch consisted of their famous crab salad sandwiches (tasted very salty and canned) and a side of salad. For ice cream, I shared a Junior Banana Split with our choice of ice cream (strawberry,...
