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 unappealing. The female server was ok but not great. The space is large and was... 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 half grilled crab sandwich which came with soup and pickles and fruit. The sandwich was... 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, same tastes, and the same generous servings. Hence the usual reaction: "Should I eat it,... 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.

It was a beautiful day in Vacaville. My wife and I were going up to visit some friends for dinner, and decided to stop at Fenton's. It has a long history going back over 100 years, having started in Oakland in 1894. We ended up sitting outside, since the day was so pleasant. My wife ordered a chicken salad, and... More
