The Ice Cream is hard to beat. The portions are a little on the small size. Prices are a little on the high side. But, you are getting quality ice cream. We found items on the menu only fair to average and pricy. We have been there probably 6 times since they opened and nothing has changed much, except for... More

This is a casual location with typical diner food, but is too notch! You get very large portions of everything and you will not walk alway hungry. You can't go wrong with what you choose on their large menu. As far as the ice cream, this is a creamery who specializes in high quality. A simple scoop of ice cream... More

They make their own ice cream and they have very good choices of ice cream & desserts. Serves basic American food such as sandwiches, burgers, soups, etc. Mid range price on the menu.

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
