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!

Always a great experience. The line is usually long on the weekends, but moves fairly fast. They offer water to those in line. Ice cream is great, atmosphere is family friendly and casual. Highly recommend stopping by if in the Savannah area!

This was the second time I have had ice cream at Leopold's. Great retro atmosphere, but limited seating. The line is always out the door, but worth the wait. I recommend the banana split!

Take a step back in time with this ice cream parlor. After a nice walk around town, stop down for a little history from the family who started this place. Sitting inside or out.

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.
