Ice cream is awesome and the atmosphere is great. The food isn't bad. The praline and cream is my fav. Lots of choices and free samples. We will come back.

Nothing we had really stood out as anything different than a Dennys. Service was so so. They really didn't keep up on our needs but it was busy.

Been going to Fenton's in Oakland for 43 years, always get the crab sandwich and black & tan sundae. Delish and ice cream portions are huge! I especially love the thick carmel! Vacaville location is great! Food and ice cream equally good!

Lunch was just ok, and for the $ the portions were small (kids menu) the cheeseburger was all bun. No need to come back. The service was fine

Ok, my title says it all. Lunch was great, and banana split was shared by all 6 of us and we still couldn't finish it. All the ice cream was delectable.

We used to go to the original Fenton's in Oakland when we were kids and it still has great ice cream! The food is typical coffee shop fare.

My 23 year son had a sundae he could barely finished. would have stopped if he could have taken it home in a doggie bag. I had a scoop and half of ice cream and that was enough for me. We both thought the quality was excellant.

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.

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
