In the past we have loved Leatherby's icecream and have frequented it even though it is dingy and run down inside -- but we are fed up with the poor service. We tried to use our groupon at Leatherby's and we wanted to sit and eat one sundae with our daughter and then get 2 to take home for our kids who were asleep in the car and my spouse who was waiting with them because we do not live near the store. They would not allow this because the coupon said dine-in. So we were dining in and they wouldn't let us take anything to go. I would have tipped on the full amount. Then I offered to get the sundaes and then put them in containers myself to go and still they would not allow it. I am not happy and will never go to Leatherby's again. It is supposed to be a family friendly establishment and the management bullied us and embarrassed us and made us feel like they did not want our business. When we called to complain later they were like "oh Come in now and we will honor your request," but we were already on our way home and had wasted our time and dignity on them. The manager just wanted to be a bully and to be rude. I will never recommend Leatherby's or visit them ever again. Plus their restaurant is FILTHY inside and I would not want to ever dine-in there ever. Had I seen those words dine in on the groupon print I would not have purchased the groupon. Huge disappointment, lame place and I will not be using my groupon afterall, nor will I give my business to Leatherby's again - so sad. They should take family out of their name altogether...

I grew up coming to Leatherby's as a child. I left for the military 15 years ago... Recently married with a baby girl I will be bringing my family to your establishment when I come home in 2 weeks! Thank you for your values!

When I was a kid my family and I would stop for sundaes every time we were in the fremont area. The caramel sundae with cookies and cream ice was my treat baby... After they closed down at the fremont hub I thought they were gone forever. I decided to look up my old friends and found them in sac only an hour from where I'm at today. It seems the ice cream shop is under some controversial discrimination. Well I'm proud to see that they stand up for what they believe in and for what is right. By standing against the abomination that is known as gay marriage. What is this world coming to? I for one will be making the trip very soon to be reunited with my caramel sundae and will be happy to enjoy it in the presence of moral people. Thank You Leatherby's!!

So my kids (9, 11 and 13) decided after eating at Leatherby's their whole lives, that they did not want to patronize a company who did not believe in equal rights for everyone. They decided that the ice cream was yummy, but they don't want our dollars going towards removing rights from people in our community. I have to say I am very proud of them!!!

Wow.. great Ice Cream, Great Pies, Great Family Values. This creamery gets 100% support for standing up for FAMILIES.. look at the reviews it isn't the people with the family values who show the bitterness, it is those that have no family to value....

Last night was the first time we visited Leatherby's, after we heard that they were boycoted for donating money to support the marriage between a man and a woman. We had the best service and icecream. We brought another family along and encouraged all our friends to suport this restaurant for standing for the truth and what is right. Should we boycot the Public Schools and Teacher's Association for donating money for no on 8??? That is not right or fair, so if you are reading this , do Support Leatherby's!!!! Will go back!!!!

Leatherby's ice cream is excellent! When our FAMILY indulges in treats, it's at Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery! The ice cream servings are ridiculously large--the prefect size to share with your sweetheart/child(ren). Love the caramel topping with toasted almond ice cream in particular. The prices are right, too! Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery has been a huge supporter in the community for decades. They're a family concern with good, old fashioned FAMILY values. There simply aren't enough solid FAMILY businesses like Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery anymore.

Anyone who speaks against Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery and accuses them of "hate" because they support a cause, simply does not know anything about the business or the FAMILY. The same people would be singing their praises if Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery decided their way on a given issue. Consider the source and the anger behind their detractors, then DECIDE FOR YOURSELF about their ice cream. I believe you'll like it, too!

As for me and my house, we will continue to support Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery! :o)

Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery - A loyal FAMILY friend in the community!

My husband and I really enjoyed our experience at Leatherby's! The service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. It is a very family friendly place. We had dinner and sundae's. Dinner was very good, my Husband loved his burger. And the sundae's!!! Whoooo they are BIG!!! Be prepared for alot of delicious ice cream!! I have to say that I was very HAPPY to see that the store is doing very well, in spite of the bitter and angry people who are harrasing this traditional family resturant. Leave the politics at home and go there to enjoy some good food and friendly service.

The Leatherby family supports discrimination and are bigots. I will never visit any of their stores again. And I would suggest those thinking about it to look to another dessert store such as Rick's Dessert Diner downtown or Gunthers.

I have not been to Leatherby's since I was a boy living in the Bay Area. However, because of the backlash that your organizaiton is receiving because you excersized your civil right to donate to a cause that you believed in, my family of 9 children and I will now be dining with you on a regular basis. We want you to know that we refuse to be intimidated by those who would limit the very rights of those they accuse of attemting to limit their rights! Way too much hypocrisy!
We will see you soon, I hope your food is good.

Other than the fact that the Arden way store smells of dirty towels and just being plain dirty, I will not do business with people that say one thing and do the complete opposite. In your interview with the Sacramento Bee, you, Dave Leatherby said, "Let's move on. I always told my children that once a rule was made, you have to abide by it. I think it should be the same in this circumstance. Well, apparently, you DO NOT PRACTICE what you preach. Apparently, you forgot about the court ruling back in June. They said that marriage between two people with the same gender was legal. So, by supporting Prop. 8, I am assuming that you are telling people that it's "OK" for you to go against the law, but, for the opponents of Prop. 8, it's not okay to go against you and all the other supporters of Prop. 8. I too am a Catholic, but I tell you what, I would rather have people of the same gender marry, than worry about what the priests are doing in the rectory or in the confessional. Hey, but it was "OK" for the bishops and the Catholic church itself to just sweep the pedophile priests under the rug. What did the church do about all that? They just moved those priests to another diocese. The Catholic church is just as hypocritical in their doctrine as you are in your so-called religious beliefs. Try living by your advice to your children, you and all the other proponents of Prop. 8 should have "moved on" when the court ruling came down. I hope that one day, you will be put in the same position that you have put the GLBT community in. When that happens, we will all tell you supporters to "Let's move on". It is just so endearing that you are raising 10 more people just like you. God save us all. You seem to be the type that would have kept women from voting, made sure that blacks sat in the rear of the bus and made sure that there would never be inter-racial marriages. Let me reiterate what I said before, you should have "MOVED ON".

It's a no-brainer that I will never take my family to Leatherby's again (it's not like they're the only ice cream parlor in town, anyway) after I read about their contribution to Prop 8 on the Bee's web site. I then looked on Leatherby's web site and saw a Utah address. That explains a lot. So this company can and its owners can spend their money to support reprehensible issues if they choose to...I just won't be giving them any more of mine to use for it.

Long time customer and supporter but I can no longer be a patron of any company that supports taking away rights of any group. These Pro 8 arguments are the same exact ones we heard back in the days when blacks were not allowed to marry whites in this country. Do you own research, they were "protecting the instituion of marriage" also. What a crock.

All of my family and friends have stopped going to Leatherby's so I can avoid Leatherby's "confusion". So you participate in the annual gay pride event? Next you'll be telling us you have friends that are minorities.

Though I used to frequent this establishment with my family, I will no longer do so. I am sick to learn that my patronage $$ were used to fund the repeal of GLBT's civil rights in California. I'd rather give my $$ to Gunther's or even Baskin Robbins to avoid this place from now on. Vote with your dollar.

Alan Leatherby, General Manager of Leatherby's, made a personal donation of $10,000 to ProtectMarriage (dot) com in support of the hateful and discriminatory Proposition 8. If you are a supporter or member of the LGBT community, or civil rights in general, please boycott this establishment. There isn't a sundae in the world creamy and delicious enough to reverse the damage this family business has sponsored.

I ordered two scoops of two different flavors, butter pecan & some type of chocolate. The butter pecan tasted stale. The chocolate flavor had little shivers of ice throughout and tasted stale. Anyone who really appreciates quality ice cream knows that these are signs of improperly stored and/or old ice cream. The portions may be large, but it's like have a large cowpie instead of a small one. It's still a cowpie. I can't believe someone would have the audacity to compare this cheap quality ice cream to Cold Stone.

I haven't been to Leatherby's in a long long time....and now I remember why. We went last night. The restaurant was dirty...may have been all the french fries on the floor..... The service was good. We ordered a hamburger and a reuben. The $7.25 hamburger was fair if you're into frozen patties and not much else. The french fries were fried way to long. The reuben was awful. I think that a reuben is supposed to have sauerkraut, swiss cheese and corned beef, on grilled rye. The sandwich we received did have sauerkraut and grilled rye....that's about all. There was no discernable cheese and one thin Buddig type slice of corned beef. When the waiter came around we asked about it. He did go and bring a little more...very very disappointing. We ordered a black and tan sundae to take home. It might have been that. Couldn't tell for sure what it was. Packed in a styrofoam cup. I guess we should have eaten it there...but then there's those french fries on the floor to look at....Don't waste your time. We won't be back.

I ordered two crab sandwich with fries for both, upon ordering i ask that my fries be fresh. (As the last time i dined there they arrived at my table cold as the ice cream) My dinner arrives & sure enough the french fries are cold & old, I immediatly tell my waiter that this is not as i had ordered, Sorry he tells me as he takes my plate with sandwich away. Five mins later he returns with hot fries ok great except that now these fries are very undercooked, like raw oily potatoes. Ok no fries tonight, but even had they been good i would'nt have been able to eat them. Why you ask? No f'n ketchup. No joke! My waiter tells me sorry we are out. Five minuts later he brings me two empty bottles turns them upside down standing on there lids & says there ya go. I then tell him (Because he asks how is everything?) that my fries are undercooked he agree's and say's that he is sorry. My ice cream sundae was well... ok. Ice cream was kinda bland & the construction of the sundae was very sloppy with way to much pinapple sauce all over it. I was on a date, so ya it was quite lame going through this. $ 40.00 plus tip later was a total waste of money as far as i'm concerned & i would not recomend. I told the cashier as i was leaving that i thought being out of ketchup was unacceptable. She told me O, then looked away.
Nice Place. Overpriced as well.

Its SO hard to not come here when its just a few blocks away from here. Its been a childhood favorite and...to adult I still come here and order from them. They hire the best people to work their that make you feel comfortable and make you feel at ease. Their burgers and fries are tasty and made to order. But definitely going here for dessert, you have to split it up amongst people. I always had a banana split with at least 4-6 people to finish on a EMPTY stomach. So prepare yourself! The prices are very decent for the quality and taste of food.

This old-fashioned ice cream parlor is a great place to get together with a group of friends, however it is usually populated with high school students after dances and birthday parties. The ice cream is totally worth it though! Be sure to get something with the marshmellow sauce on it and don't be intimidated by the portion sizes. It will be gone before you know it!

I went for the first time a couple years ago and it was awesome, great place to hangout with the family and just have a good time. the atmosphere is exciting, loud, and fun. the portions are enormous, and all the ice-cream is awesome you cant go wrong. I opted for the sundae and got the works. its an absolute must see in sacramento.

I've gone to Leatherby's for the last 20 years. Even after moving away from Sacramento, when I'm back in town, I have to stop in to get my fix. Their endless variety of sundaes makes each trip fun and new. Their grilled cheese sandwiches are excellent and, overall, it's a wonderful spot to meet with family and friends.

Their endless variety of sundaes makes each trip fun and new. Their grilled cheese sandwiches are excellent and, overall, it's a wonderful spot to meet with family and friends.

Pros: Variety, Tasty , Great atmosphere

.

The desserts at this place are absolutely sinful, but it is worth it. The ice cream is made relatively fresh and the hot fudge is so yummy. Leatherby's also has your basic burger and sandwich meals, but people often go there for their gigantic ice creams, which fill you up as if they were a meal in themselves. The prices are pretty steep for dessert though. A average sundae will cost you about 7 or 8 bucks. I also love the fact that they are open so late during the weekends!

PROS: Magnificant Ice Cream Sundaies, Great Service
CONS: Pricey Ice Cream

Leatherbys Family Creamery is my other favorite ice cream parlor. I go here for there great sundaes and banana splits. I love their chocolate fudge topping. It is just to die for. Try Valeries Black and White. It has marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate fudge, nuts and a cherry all on top of chocolate and vanilla ice cream.

I heard so much about Leatherbys from so many people in this area but I didn't think it was as great as people said it was. Maybe the hype ruined it for me. It was good ice cream don't get me wrong but not anything I would go out of my way for. The whip cream was gross though. But the employees were super nice and they really kept that old time home style old fashioned feeling. That is cool. The atmosphere makes you want to eat ice cream. They also have other old fashioned ice cream shop foods there such as burders and fries. it's all decent. Again the ice cream is good but not out of this world.

Leatherbys has the best ice cream and toppings anywhere in the area. The portions are HUGE and the prices are very reasonable for the portion size. The food is average but the ice cream is fantastic!

Leatherby's is a long time family favorite. The food is mearly adequate but the reason you are here is the ice cream! The servings are HUGE so be careful what you wish for!

Usually the Small Sundae is more than sufficient for me. It comes with vanilla but you can substitue any of their flavors. Mocha Royale with homemade hot fudge is my favorite!

It can get very loud and crowded on weekend evenings but you can always get your ice cream to go from the front counter.

Cons: Can get Crowded, Can get Noisy

This is just good Ice Cream. For those who haven't been, It one place you can say go there once, you'll be there twice. no doubt! take you're little ones and order a Daddy Daves Banana Split, and watch their expression. "Priceless!" Enjoy.

If you've never been to Leatherby's, you just have to go. There is nothing better than a sharing a large banana split with the one you love in a 50's type setting. The service is great and the atmosphere is perfect for any occasion. We live right down the street, and it is always a treat! I'd recommend the Black and Tan with toasted almond ice cream. Don't forget to take home some homemade caramel sauce for the road. It's to die for.

Leatherby's is the best ice cream around. My only complaint is that all the franchises are gone. Yes, no one runs a franchise with the same care as the original owners, but not all are bad. We drive 90 miles to enjoy Leatherby's. We'd enjoy it more often if they'd allow franchises again. There's nothing like Leatherby's in the SFBay area. Fentons doesn't come close!!

I have had both Leatherby's and Cold Stone and it is a no brainer for me to say that this parlor is much better than Cold Stone. They make their own ice cream AND homemade whipped cream (can't say that for CS!) If you want a real sundae, this is your place!

friendly service, yummy ice cream...highly recommended. A bit overpriced and they could add some simple make it yourself sundaes to the menu that are cheaper, but otherwise a great place!

This is a great place for all ages. The club sandwich is terrific and the kid menu has great options. We have tried several different items and have been pleased with everything but the reuben sandwich, which was awful.

My uncle's brother owns this restaurant.
That really has nothing to do with anything, however, because I don't know the guy. I went there once for my cousin's birthday party, and the food was very good. The service wasn't great, but it was a big party and there were lots of 5 year olds running around the place. It is a nice place.

Great place to go on a late Summer evening after a movie, a walk through the park, or after a baseball game. Great Ice Cream in a Fun Place!
