I've been going to Fentons for as long as I can remember and they've always had the best ice cream in Oakland. There other food is acceptable but not great. If you go don't sit down unless you are going to get a large sundae like cookie connection(best sundae) it's really not worth it.

My daughter and her friend ordered ice cream sundaes and they were delicious but we were shocked at how large the servings were. Looked like a half gallon in each bowl!

This is a favorite hangout place for me & my granddaughter. They have the best ice cream & food ever in any season; and of course it's kid friendly!

You can't go wrong with a visit or two at Fentons. Yes, the ice cream is fun and the other food is decent but won't blow you away but Fentons is about its history, the atmosphere and the people and family it brings together among other things. On our recent lunchtime visit we were surrounded by grandparents bringing their grandkids,... More

We are big fans of Fentons - they are local and family owned . They have the best ice cream - very highly recommended. I usually pig out and go for a pint.

I must visit Fentons each time I come to the Bay Area! This is home for me and my family would always visit here, for the best ice cream and sandwiches in The Bay Area! Be sure to bring your family, it's also a nice date night👍🏾💕 Thanks God bless!

This place has humongous portions of ice cream.! Food is good.. burgers accompanied with curly fries.! Must visit for ice cream lovers.!
