The big Cobb salad was really good, but the highlight was of course the chocolate sundae. The ice cream and sauce are a bit above the competition.

This place can get very crowded and parking can be a huge pain but this is an Oakland institution for ice cream and food. You have to try it once in your life but this place can become a generational visit with grandparents to little babies in backpacks. Pick your favorite ice cream flavors and you won’t be disappointed. Limited dairy free ice cream choices.

Go. Go. Go! It's a nice place even if you're lactose intolerant. The folks are nice, the place is small but the excitement in anticipation of ice cream is large and loud. Fun for everyone. Fenton's brings people together. Oh, the ice cream is really good, too.

Fentons has been around for decades & has earned a reputation for serving quality ice cream that has the creamy taste most chain ice cream parlors can't match. The choice is almost unbounded, the quality is very good, & the portions are large enough to share. Also a good place for a light meal. Parking can be tough.

Fenton's Creamery is a historic and excellent ice cream parlor in existence since 1864. Fenton's has been at this location since 1961. I tend to go early or late to avoid the crowds. My favorite is the Black and Tan Sundae!!! I love this ice cream.
