Description: No trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream! Named the #5 Ice Cream in the World, Leopold's is a "Must-Do." You'll enjoy visiting our retro ice cream parlor, complete with old fashioned soda fountain and friendly soda jerks. You'll also experience a little piece of Hollywood in Savannah as you peruse Stratton Leopold's collection of film posters and props from films he has worked on over his 45 plus years in the movie industry! Leopold's Ice Cream was founded in 1919 by three immigrant brothers from Greece. They learned the art of candy and dessert from an uncle who had already settled in America. The brothers perfected the secret formulas and created the world famous Leopold's VeriBest™ ice cream.Our ice cream is made in house, one batch at a time, using family recipes handed down from the Leopold brothers. With our soda fountain creations and more than 20 flavors available at any given time, we've got something just for you!

This place is so delicious that we visited twice in less than 24 hours. We ate ice cream there the first night in town and went for lunch the next day. You must go! Both ice cream and food are delicious!

No trip to Savannah is complete, especially during the summer, without a stop at Leopolds. The ice cream is high quality and tastes great, the inside reminds you of the old-fashioned ice cream shops, and the staff is always friendly. The history of the place is very interesting, as well as the collection of movie props.

After a very warm day of walking and discovering, we stopped at Leopold's for ice cream. What a great place; it was cool inside and we enjoyed sitting a bit and looking at the many displays on the walls. GREAT ICE CREAM, TOO! and some interesting flavors. This place is a Savannah tradition and the ice cream and friendly people... More

After several nights of by-passing the line ( which ran out the door), we finally found an evening when the line was manageable. It had an old soda shoppe feel, and all the employees were congenial and ready to help. Definitely a tasty experience.

Good ice cream on a hot day! This became a staple stop in the afternoons during our week in the city. The kids enjoyed the variety of flavors! The line could be a little long, but for the most part it was worth the wait.

They say it's the best ice cream in Georgia and I must say the place lives up to the expectation. I tried Coconut and Lemon and it was truly delicious. Go early or be prepared for waiting as this place gets busy and the queue outside could be long - once there were 50-ish people waiting outside, but worth waiting.

We waited in a long line but felt like we just had to try it. I was impressed because a young lady came out a dispensed cups of cold water to the waiting crowd. Very tasty ice cream worn the wait

Just the best homemade ice cream ever. Leopold's is 95 years old and judging by the line out the door when we went, they'll be around for at least 95 more years. I had salted caramel ice cream and my mouth was so very happy. Hubby enjoyed his banana milk shake and I took a taste and my mouth was... More
