I stopped in for the walk up fast serve area. I dropped my ice cream before I could eat it. Without skipping a beat the ice cream server fellow said don't worry about it and quickly made me another. Always quality ice cream. I have...More

I dined at Fentons for lunch. This is a great place to go I enjoyed chicken wings served with carrot sticks and celery. And then had an almond ice cream with caramel sauce sundae. Yum. Staff is wonderful.

The quality isn't the same as the old days. I remembered Fenton's as being about as close to home made ice cream as you can get. Not any more. . . . The proportions are huge, so if that's what you're looking for, you're in...More

I didn't part-take in one of their colossal ice cream desserts but I did get a medium sized (which was big) of their Amond Crunch and it was simply delicious!

I frequent this Creamery as they have the best chocolate 🍦 ice cream. But I have to make sure I’m really craving for it or hungry as the 2 scoops I order are big and I can’t hardly eat them all. It’s always busy though...More

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
