You really have to try the blackberry ice cream. If you have not, you have not experienced the best taste in the world. I think it's only available during summer, but it is delicious! There are other ice cream's that are great, and the restaurant...More

Yes, the original Fenton's is in Oakland - and you may have seen the restaurant in the movie "Up" but this outpost if a "must stop" on the way east on Highway 80 to Sacramento or the mountain resorts, or to connect to 505 to...More

A decent meal for two under $40 with tip included. Food was hot and tasty but not exceptional. I did not have any ice cream though so I can't speak to it. I would return.

I had heard of Fenton' s since I moved to the bay area in the 80's, but it was always the Oakland location. When I saw they had a location in Vacaville I just had to stop. The sandwiches were great, not something you hear...More

The ice cream and dessert menu is awesome, you can't beat it. However, the food and service for the Dining room is pretty awful. The price tag is pretty steep for frozen entrees and cold, limp French fries. The restaurant is always busy but don't...More

I have always enjoyed Fenton's. Their salads have been very good. Of course, the ice cream selections are great. However, DO NOT order the chicken salad sandwich. Mine was served on dry bread with no dressing of any kind on the slices. Tasteless.

Crab sandwiches, corn chowder and chicken noodle soup in a bread bowl, that is what was on the menu for lunch today. The crab sandwiches were good, but not out of this world. The corn chowder tasty, but the chicken noodle lacked broth. The food...More

I am familiar with Fenton's because I lived in Oakland and used to visit the landmark Fenton's there. It suffered a devastating fire, but was reopened after several month's renovation. I prefer the Fenton's in Oakland, but the Vacaville site is not too bad.

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
