Everyone loves the atmosphere and ice cream at Fenton's. A favorite place to take visitors and out of town guests.

Delicious ice cream combinations, super friendly staff, fun for the kids. Order a petit scoop or sundae if you don't tend to eat that much.

Visited here from out of town and have to say that this place probably had the best ice cream I’ve ever had. Now I’ve been around the block a few times and been to many terrific ice cream places but Fenton’s has them all beat....More

I recommend Coffee Cookie Dream with Hot Fudge Sauce but really you can't go wrong. However, be prepared for crazy large portions.

We visited this place upon recommendation of some friends. They had unique flavor offerings. And, when we dined in, it was very old-timey and charming. Their prices were reasonable. We had a great time and will definitely return.

Our out of town daughter and her family Love Fenton’s. After we picked them up at the Oakland airport, it was directly to Fenton’s for not only ice cream, but dinner too. Had a great crab sandwich and Black and Tan.
