I remember going to the Fenton's in Oakland many, many times decades ago during my college days in the Bay Area. The sundaes were enormous and the milkshakes were also huge (they gave you the filled milkshake glass AND the metal mixing cup with the rest. As I recall, there was a scoop of ice cream as a "sidecar." As... More

If you have ever been to a Leatherby's (in the Sacramento area), you have basically had Fenton's ice cream - they taste the same, have the same names, have nearly identical menus, but unfortunately unlike Leatherby's, Fenton's does not offer meal deals. They have good burgers and sandwiches, but the ice cream is the star. Be aware that a small... More

Very family oriented and a great place for a birthday gathering. There are also regular menu items, including hamburgers and fancy sandwiches. Service is generally very... More

Fentons does ice cream really, really well. Homemade caramel and fudge sauce? Really excellent. You can buy it to go! The ice cream offerings have some great seasonal pics, and you can't go without trying their "black and tan" sundae at least once in life. I am not so much for their food, go for ice cream. Their scoops are... More

I tried a few of them and couldn't believe the butter brickle was bland, no brickle. The almond, boring. Cookies and cream....not much ice cream. I love ice cream and I did not finish my cup. Two fellows waiting on people were very nice though.

love the food especially the cob salad but the air conditioning is always turned up too high, the restaurant is always clean, bright lighting and inviting.

This is the second Fenton's location. The original has been in Oakland for many years and was featured in the Pixar movie UP! Located just off I-80 in Vacaville, This fabulous ice cream joint is a great place to stop on your way through for some awesome dessert (food too, but really, you come here for the dessert) The Shakes,...
