They are open late, but the food is only 'OK' especially for the price, however, the Sundaes are nice to grab late at night on way home! I've been here 4+ time over 5 years.

Amazing ice cream. Seemingly bottomless dish. Very pleasant staff. Enough flavors to satisfy all. Food good as well, but ice cream cannot be beat. Allow sharing of ice cream

Busy cute diner style place for ice cream. Old fashion feel which is a cute throw back. Ice cream is average and nothing unique.

Fenton's sells diner food and ice cream, but you'd never know it listening to the way its fans wax idiotic about the place (I'm looking at one of the sidebar reviews: "The best ice cream in California" ... I rest my case) gushing about how...More

I can only say that the vanilla malted milk shakes are so worth it since it's made from real ice cream. Figure about $4-$6 and depending on the size.
