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!

“Holy Cow!! Now that's ice cream!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

We were told that Leopold's has the best ice cream in the world ! Well we definitely had to go and find that out for ourselves.
And I have to say, Yep we think they might be right! It was so good, in fact, we went back the next day also! There seems to pretty much always be a line waiting to get in, but don't allow that to deter you from an amazing indulgence! The prices are in line with their quality but it was absolutely positively well worth it!!
Treat yourself! You won't be sorry.

“A Savannah Tradition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is truly a fun place to stop and enjoy the most delicious ice cream! Samole the flavors before deciding on your favorite. The "soda Jerks" are friendly and it's obvious they enjoy their job.

“Fabulous!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely the best ice cream I have ever had. The pumpkin spice was incredible. The scoops are huge. A single was way more than enough. I don't understand the reviewer who said you hardly get any. A definite do not miss kind of place while in Savannah.

“Charming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Old style ice cream parlor! Great ice cream...gained five pounds but it was worth it. A lot of interesting movie trivia to look at while you eat.

“Refreshing treat after all that walking!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

This place is a just a solid ice cream joint. Clean, service was good and it is definitely a one-off kind of place. Next time I want to try the root beer float!
