Old school ice cream parlor serving up ice cream sundaes and diner style comfort food. Eat in with waiter service or grab an ice cream to-go (shortest wait if crowded).
Limitless flavors - when in doubt, try their rocky road.
Huge sundaes - pick from the menu or create your own.
Thick and creamy ice cream - just how I like it.
Parking available in adjacent lot for free or street parking.
Recommended for the ice cream lover, families, and couples.

Fenton's has been popularized ever since it was featured in the movie UP, but on its own I still consider it a great place to grab a classic ice cream sundae. This place is different than most places in the Bay Area because it's not trying to be "artisan" or crazy. It's more like a classic ice cream shop and diner. They sell savory food, but I don't know anyone who regularly orders it. I love splitting a sundae with a group. A regular size will generously feed three. Boyfriend and I normally split a junior sundae. They're kind of pricey at $10 for a regular and $7 for a junior, but with all the fixings piled on top and dripping onto the plate, I feel like it's worth it. The quality of ice cream is solid and the combinations of flavors and toppings are seemingly endless. Definitely worth a visit.

Fentons is a traditional and classic diner that still exists today in Oakland. It's a great place for kids and adults to enjoy a family friendly atmosphere, with menu options like classic burgers, fries, and a shake. It gets noisy and crowded as there's always someone celebrating a special occasion. The staff always seem to be upbeat and cheerful to the patrons.

Yes it's a bit pricy and it's usually too crowded for my tastes. However, my son loves it and the ice cream treats are hard to beat. Plus it's great going into a place with so much family and community energy. We've been coming here for years and will continue to do so!

If you watched "100 of America's Greatest Pig-Outs" on the Food Network then you'll remember that Fenton's was #4! They showed their popular Black & Tan and Banana Split sundaes so of coarse we came for the sundaes and wow they were HUGE!!! They also serve diner style foods if you're hungry. I opted for the Junior Black & Tan sundae for $8.50 and I still could only eat half! Yuuummmm...one scoop Toasted Almond and one scoop Vanilla ice cream with home made caramel and fudge, topped with toasted almonds, whip cream, and a cherry! Something like that sounds decedent, but it wasn't overly sweet because the almonds complemented the richness of the chocolate. We also had the Banana Walnut which didn't seem to hit the spot like the Black & Tan. It tasted more like banana candy than fresh bananas. Great stop on a sunny day if you're in the area! And if you're a Pixar lover like me, you'll appreciate Russell's reference to Fentons in the movie "Up".

If you've seen up, they used the logo for Fenton's as the place the old man and the kid go to at the end to get ice cream. It's not too far from the Pixar headquarters, so I'm not surprised.
Ice cream since 1894. enough said.
Actually, their menu even has hot foods. so it's not just an ice cream parlor. But my friend and I went there for ice cream. SO GOOD! I had a petite sundae with mocha royale and marshmellow fluff. Yum. My friend had their special - something flight, where three little scoops of ice cream come out on this pedestal in separate ramekins. He did say, if he knew, he would have opted for a regular thing off their menu like a sundae or something. But either way - ice cream was great.
It's a bit pricy for ice cream - but if you have the word "creamery" for an ice cream joint - I think most would assume so.
