We went here today and loved it. We didn't have to queue at all. I had chocolate chip and chocolate raspberry swirl in a glass bowl. It was called a double scoop, but the gave 2 scoops of each! My husband had banana and mint chocolate chip. Both very satisfied and would go back definitely!

Defiantly worth your time if you are in Savannah on a hot day or relaxing afternoon. The best time to go would be in the morning, because the line is around the block in the afternoon.

Yummy!! Our family makes it a point to walk to Leopold's for ice cream whenever we are in Savannah. The mint chocolate chip is amazing. Don't be afraid when you see the line is out of the door- they serve quickly and you will be on your way.

Leopolds has been in Savannah since the early 1900's. Everyone says to go there. We waited 45 minutes, but it was worth it. By the way, staff brought out menus to those standing in line and also provided ice water. It a little pricey. Too many choices, but it was very good...worth the wait.

The ice cream was amazing and definitely lived up to the hype. The banana ice cream had pieces of banana in it. I put waffle cone pieces on it to remind me of banana pudding, but it didn't need it because the flavor was so amazing. There was no line when I was there, which was great. The sundaes look... More

Leopold's is a cute place. The ice cream is very good. I'm not sure it was worth standing in line for.

We were a bit discouraged by the line out the door but to our surprise it moved fast. They hand you menus so you can pick what you'd like and have your order ready by the time you reach the counter. They were also handing out cups of water, as the heat index was 115 degrees. I got the coffee... More

We were only able to get in after a huge storm, before the line built up again. You're facing at least a 45 minute wait at times but it is truly worth it. A multitude of flavors await you and the many on staff do a good job of keeping the line moving. We wanted to go back last night... More

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.
