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!

“Fabulous ice cream & great friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We had both sandwiches, sundaes & ice cream over two visits. Yep, it is so good we went back! Anyway, the food is great and the staff, all of them, are friendly and want very much to accommodate variations and special requests. The store itself is a cross between old fashioned ice cream parlor and museum; fun and functional.
The only negative is that you often have to wait in line, it's that good. And sooo worth it,

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Line was out the door during the day, so we went back at night. Ice cream was good, old school ambiance of the place was nice. It was fun to eat a cone outside and people watch. Would stop by again .

“Ice Cream and More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stopped by twice. First time to meet friends. Hadn't had lunch to tried Leopold's sandwiches. Everything was good; recommend the shrimp salad sandwich. Their pasta salad was great.

Back in line for ice cream! Loved the old-fashioned chocolate chip. No one had any complaints!

Service was very good. Quick and accurate, especially considering how busy they are.

Second visit was the next day for ice cream dinner! Yumm, pumpkin spice. Coconut was good, too.

“This is a MUST do for all trips to Savannah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

The ice cream is the best ever. If you go later in the evening 10pm to midnight the lines are pretty short. Great way to end the day.
