They make their own ice cream and they have very good choices of ice cream & desserts. Serves basic American food such as sandwiches, burgers, soups, etc. Mid range price on the menu.

This is a great spot to take the family for Ice Cream. We used to go to Farrell's but they are no longer open. So we were surprised with Fenton's and it will be a great replacement. Portions are large, so plenty of sharing.

This is the best ice cream anywhere! I really don't want to have lunch because then I'm too full for my real reason for coming-the hot fudge sundae!

Like the name says, Fenton's Creamery. Not Burger Barn or something like that. The food is mediocre at best. The ice cream how ever is great. They should stick to what they do good.

Wonderful food, fantastic ice cream. Although it is a bit expensive, the portions are very generous. I'm glad the old Nut Tree site is being put to good use.

We stopped by Fentons for some desert after lunch at The sushi buffet. The cherry pie was very good. Nice flaky crust and tart cherries. The rocky road ice cream is my wife's favorite. Her mother liked I as well. Good service and seating

We were traveling and hungry and wanted a travel break to do a bit of shopping. Decided to try Fentons for dinner. My portobello burger was pretty good, but the blue cheese salad dressing for my salad was really awful. It tasted very 'chemically'. Extremely...More

Was expecting a whole lot more. After going to the Fenton's in Oakland, we were excited to try this one out. Greeted and seated right away. However, the menu I was handed had ice cream all over the front and was very sticky. Ordered the...More

Going to Fenton's in Vacaville brought back childhood memories, since my family visited the Fenton's in Oakland fairly regularly when I was a kid. Other than the prices (which weren't as inflated as I expected), everything was THE SAME! Same smells, same sundaes, same names,...More

I stop by for the ice cream anytime I'm driving through Vacaville. Their salads are big and delicious and their burgers are really good as well. They have a wide variety of ice cream flavors plus seasonal flavors.

Fenton's was started back in 1894 as a delivery service and soda fountain in Oakland, CA and has been an icon for ice cream since then. It was always a treat to go there when I was young. Of course there was also Moo's ice... More
