“Great Family Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a good old fashioned ice cream parlor and super deli. The menu contains a LARGE list of food items - all good. Then you get to the ice cream. Homemade and very generous. Ice cream sodas and shakes - oh yes. Something for everyone. What the heck "life's short , eat dessert first!" Great stop when traveling between South Tahoe and San Francisco. It's in Vacaville at the Nut Tree Plaza.

“A historical meal?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I had family come up to visit, and they had heard about Fentons so we decided to go. The food isn't bad and neither is the ice cream, but from everything I had read and heard I think the expectation were just too high for this place to meet. The atmosphere was cool, and the food was not bad at all, but did it meet the hype? I would say no,

We stop hear every time we come thru the area. Large cob salad for the entire family leaves room for the AWESOME ice cream treats.
