This is true old school ice cream parlor. Great atmosphere, lots of history and fantastic ice cream. Warning you will have to wait in line that goes outside the building but it's worth it. Staff even serves cold water to customers while in line. Will definitely go back on next visit to Savannah!😀

Our adventure wouldn't be complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice cream parlour. From the moment you walk in, you are transported back in time. The staff are very patient and extremely knowledgable when faced with such an important decision as to what flavours to choose when you can only choose one. Each family member chose something different and we... More

Wife was shopping, so I wondered in for a sundae and sit for a bit. Very traditional ice cream parlor look. I asked about Gluten Free, they understood and let me know which ice cream I couldn't eat. I drove by later in the afternoon, the line was out the door, I didn't have a wait just an hour or... More

My family and I always come to Savannah and have never been to Leopold's. Typically once we get to Broughton Street there is a line from the front counter out the door and halfway down the street.. so our typical thought is "we will try it next time". This time we went with a plan! We decided to go right... More

I love ice cream, as evidenced by my substantial waist. This is undoubtedly some of the best ice cream in the USA. Try thr chocolate raspberry Phenomenal. The service was great. Such polite young servers. It was worth the long wait n line

Excellent ice cream that offers well known classic flavors and a few that you don't see very much anymore including Lemon Custard and Tutti Frutti. Yes the line is long but it moves well and the ice cream is worth the wait.

Store always had a long line... we waited one morning for them to open, with several others at 11AM. It was good. It's a landmark for Savannah.

During a July 2016 heat wave was our 1st time visit to Leopold's. The line was very long partially down sidewalk. Ice water was consistently offered to keep you cooled off as you waited along with menus to make your selection. Lots of delicious flavors to choose from. They had approx 6 people behind counter to keep the line moving... More

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!
