Don't let the lines deter you. They move quickly and the ice cream is worth the wait. The staff is polite and will make recommendations as to what flavors are their favorites, etc.

Wow! Thanks for going above and beyond, y'all! I am allergic to strawberries. When I explained that to the clerk, she told my she could use a fresh scooper and get my ice cream directly from the container in the back, to avoid any contamination. Wow!!! Such excellent service! Nice to know others can still enjoy their favorite strawberry enhanced... More

The boyfriend and I both agreed this was the best ice cream we have ever had. We went there to try the legendary Tutti Frutti, and of course we sampled others! He tried the Rum Bisque with his, and I tried the Chocolate Chewies and Cream (which I decided on when the lovely girl behind the counter asked if it... More

My husband and I were on our way home from Orlando and we decided to stop and have a treat at Leopolds ice cream. I heard of this place while watching the Paula Deen show on Food Network and she always spoke so highly of them. She would have the owner appear on the show at times. So we decided... More

See props and posters from films, have a chat with movie producer Stratton Leopold himself, sit at the wooden snack bar, or in an old telephone booth. Eat premium ice cream made with the same technique as when the business began in 1919, handed down to Stratton by his father. Don't miss it!

Read reviews on Trip Advisor and needed an "bite" on 1st night in Savannah. We were tickled pink to stand in line with other natives & tourists. Everyone in a playful mood and willing to explain the ordering process. It's a must do for sandwich and ice cream. Yummy sundaes, milk shakes and cones!
