“Great place for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

This was near my sister's house so we took the kids here on a Monday. This place was so accommodating for 9 of us. Some of the adults just had coffee but most had ice cream too. They were great with the kids, even taking the time to listen to what exactly my 3 y.o. wanted and making his special sundae. The ice cream portions are hugh. The regular sized ice cream was about the size of a soft ball. No one could finish. They have a full menu also if you are hungry for something other than ice cream.

“Huge servings, fresh ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

Came in here specifically to do the "kitchen sink" challenge which was on Man V Food. I failed miserably!

But beside that the normal servings of ice cream are huge. Ice cream is very fresh tasting with a huge array of flavours. Service was also good.

Its a little out of San Fran, but ifnearWalnut Creek get in here for some ice cream! Cant comment on the other food as we did not try it.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

My bbq chicken burger was very good, but my mom did not enjoy the chicken pot pie. The ice cream was very good, but is a lot bigger than one may think.

“Better than Friendly's, but not Worth the Trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2011

San Francisco Creamery is about twenty to fourty minutes outside San Francisco. Its food is little better than Friendly's, so it is not really worth the money. Service was not really good, considering that our server was hesitant about cooking the burger less than medium well and giving us well done when we asked for medium rare. As for the ice cream, it tastes just about the same. If you came here from the Kitchen Sink and live in the East Coast, you're better off taking a trip to Vermont for the Vermonster.
