I love the black and tan with Swiss milk chocolate ice cream! It's always busy and it's hard to find parking, but it's worth the wait!

Huge amounts of good ice cream. Generations have enjoyed this ice cream parlor, their specialty sundaes are not to be missed. Good grilled cheese, tuna melt, etc. you get the idea. Not Michelin star but fun traditional fare.

This place featured in the movie UP and does great ice cream. I was told the other dishes are so-so. We only came here for ice cream.

The food at Felton's is as out of this world as their wildly popular ice cream sundaes. Loved the bot and my husband was very happy with the hamburger. Then came the ssundae!!! We only ordered one and couldn't even finish that. A wonderful time was had for all.

Great place to grab typical diner foods-although a bit overpriced IMO. The ice creams are delicious & super sized so save room if you plan to order dessert.

In the area for a work trip. Visited Fentons with some coworkers. I was not disappointed. The ice cream was delicious!! Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
