    Long line but hey.. As a youngster from this area it was all about hanging and still is .... Right.. I would sit at the counter to get fast service and have the sliders any day. no wait....

  • Sarah S.

    I visit this restaurant from time to time and the level of their service improves a lot. The staff are corteous and kind. I also love that the serving time is fast.

    The lines are long but the waiting is worth it. Lots of favors from Strawberry cheesecake to Rocky road. Enjoy!

    Try the Fenton's Club (via @Foodspotting)

    If you are solely talking about quality of icecream, this place is just about average or below. Atmosphere is cool, but that's really it. Go to Lush Gelato instead.

    Have your ice cream sundae served in a "boat" instead of a sundae dish so all flavors may be accessed without digging to the bottom of their generous helpings.

    The BEST place to get an ice cream stomach ache! They serve a mean French Dip au jus as well.

    Portions are massive. Definitely share with three, maybe 4, people if you're getting a specialty.

    Good diner food, but make sure you make some room for dessert. They're best known for their HUGE sundaes

    The coffee cookie dream has the best coffee ice cream ever.

    Frank Kim · October 27, 2014
  • Carlos G.

    Solid sandwiches, clean place, A+ customer service. Only tried the regular vanilla ice cream (there's also vanilla bean) but it was really good. Bring $$$. Almost $5 for a single-scoop cone. Ouch!

    Carlos Gutierrez · October 23, 2014
  • Rebecca W.

    Get the flight for ice cream to try three different flavors. Best deal of the menu, enough to serve two.

    Rebecca Wang · October 13, 2014

    Have a classic chocolate milkshake.

    Splitting a sundae is a good idea. I usually split with one other friend if we're both hungry :)

    Meredith Maimoni · September 23, 2014
  • Thomas V.

    The line was insane but moved quick. The location is legendary. We go for the dessert and the milk shakes are not to be missed.

    The massive Black & Tan Sundae is what Fentons is known for, which combines toasted almond and vanilla ice cream with chocolate and caramel sauces. Read more

    Banana Jr sundae!

    Brian S · September 8, 2014

    Black and Tan sundae is the best! Swap out one of the flavors for Swiss milk chocolate ice cream to make it even better than the original

    Coffee break cookie

    The petite cup serving is more than enough for an adult. The single is way too much ice cream--even though you'll definitely eat it all because it is do delicious.

    Food was okay but I came for the ice cream!

    Try a sundae on a Sunday. Come early for breakfast and stay for some ice cream.

    Best ice cream spot in the Bay Area. It's been around for over 100 years and never gets old.

    This hopping spot has a diner-esque feel to it and massive sundaes which are great for sharing.

    The regular sundae is big enough for two and the petit sundae is perfect for one.

    If you go before a game get there early to have dinner/lunch. The crab sandwich, crab salad & onion rings are great. Make sure you save room for ice cream, the selection is FANTASTIC!

    Ariadna Badalamenti · July 22, 2014

    Get the black and tan! Actually, anything on the menu is great if you like ice cream!
