Description: No trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream...
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!

There is always a long line going into Leopold's but the staff is well trained and keep things moving quickly. Atmosphere is bright and clean with small café tables to sit and enjoy your treat, or get it to go. Every flavor I tried is excellent. It is as good as any ice cream I ever had, and better than...

The ice cream was great! It is well worth any line that there may be. The memorabilia in the shop was just amazing! Well worth the wait.

The kids loved it so we went twice. Once for ice cream and the second time for sundaes. They would have gone back a third time if we were there longer.

Do not mind the long waits outside the restaurant. This is a place that transfers you back into the 50s. Great ice-cream

Most definitely the best ice cream I'd ever had. the Tutti Frutti has a song written about it so you have to try that one. The chocolate raspberry swirl and pistachio were fantastic! We went back all 3 nights we were in Savannah! Can be very long lines, but worth the wait! Generous portions too! A Must See!!

Terrific ice cream. I highly recommend banana; my hubbie liked the coconut. The quality is on par with Morelli's in Atlanta, and Jeni's Ice Cream in Columbus, OH.

It's ice cream, its historic, what can be bad? The long line? Possibly, but it's worth it! All the flavored look wonderful.

If you like ice cream, you have to try Leopold's! It's part toursity, part history, and part delicious ice cream. Very friendly staff and they move fast so don't let the line discourage you.
