Though the ice cream is just average, the store is in a great location with a fun decor and friendly staff.

Dear FredS2008, Thank you for the kind words about our shop and staff. Our soda jerks work really hard to give exceptional customer service while still moving the line along quickly. It's always nice when someone recognizes them for their efforts. Thanks! I understand that taste is a very personal thing and that not everyone will fall in love with... More

In my opinion, this is overrated. People in Savannah think this is superb but I think overall it is average. Maybe if they are comparing this to a chain then it could be much better than a chain solution to ice cream.

Dear fssutton1, Thanks for stopping in to see us and for taking the time to post your review. Since you mentioned it, here is what makes Leopold's Ice Cream above average...

We went to Leopold's because a friend recommended it. It did not disappoint! It felt like we stepped back in time to an old ice cream shop and soda fountain. I had the ice cream sandwich. I highly recommend it.

We had two ice cream cones, single scoop and it was $11. The ice cream - frozen hot chocolate - was very good but $11 for two cones felt a steep. We enjoyed eating our ice cream out on the front sidewalk and people watching. But overall I would say this was just your typical ice cream shop with inflated... More

Stopped here when I saw the line was short. Ice cream flavors offered were just ok, the one I chose ...mocha coffee chip I think was the name....was just ok...not that flavorful. Would have been mad had I waited in the typical very long line. The ice cream at Ben and Jerrys just down the street with zero line was... More

Leopold ice cream is worth a daily visit. Being January we never had any lines, but I would stand in line for this treat! Chocolate lovers you MUST try the chocolate raspberry swirl. You will thank me for the advice.

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!
