I had to share a sundae that had butter brickel, vanilla over a chocolate brownie with whip cream, chopped almonds and a cherry on top. It was really good and we both couldn't eat the whole thing. Truly amazing.

Fentons is a classic, old-school style ice cream shop. So many great options but our favorite was the chocolate....so rich and creamy. Highly recommend if you are looking for all the traditional flavors. Great place for a crowd!

Fenton’s is famous for ice cream, and it should be. It serves a wide variety of flavors and toppings and has been around for a long time. Unfortunately, I had the turkey cheeseburger, which left much to be desired. Both the turkey burger and the...More

When you're in Italy you find gelaterias that have intense family loyalties, often leading to animated discussions of whose Tartuffo is superior. Fenton's has been around so long and has just a loyal family tradition. Try to make a stop whenever nearby

Great ice cream! One scoop is huge! Family friendly but crowded. I had mine in a cup so we just walked around.

I can only say that the vanilla malted milk shakes are so worth it since it's made from real ice cream. Figure about $4-$6 and depending on the size.
