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!

So our carriage driver recommended and we went. It's a zoo. Girl scouts lined out the door and very busy. Not for the faint of heart. Ice cream was awesome so go try it out. Floats are floats but don't take the grand parents and expect a nice sit down meal. It's a busy noisy ice cream shop with some... More

We were so disappointed that all of the riverfront ice cream shops weren't local or handmade. Leopold's was right by our hotel and was absolutely delicious. Their ice cream had a light, airy consistency that was a bit different from anything I've had before.

The carriage driver gave the recommendation! It was everything she said plus. The chicken salad sandwich was great! The ice cream was totally beyond any I have ever tasted before!!! The price not bad for servings. The atmosphere added to the great experience!

As I wandered through the historic district in the 90 degree heat and serious humidity, I wondered why there weren't more sit-down ice cream joints in Savannah. Now I know - everyone just goes to Leopold's! It's always busy, but they are well staffed, so service is fast (and friendly). The ice cream? Seriously delicious. It reminded me of the... More

The ice cream is so delicious on every visit. This last visit we ended up getting a late meal and the food was good. Will look forward to our next trip.

The ice cream is good (I got chocolate raspberry) but the line was long, but did move fairly quickly. There were lots of choices to choose from.

Leopold's is one of the first places I mention when people ask me about recommendations in Savannah. It's just got that neat, original throwback character that is so lacking in ice cream shops these days. Not to mention the ice cream is delicious, and worth the wait. Great for all ages.

We were fortunate to be in the area about 11:30 and there was not a line. We quickly went in to get our Ice cream. Expect to wait 30-40 minutes for lunch and after dinner. There is always a line. The ice cream was really good. We would not have waited in line for it.
