Description: No trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream! Named One of the Top 10 Ice Cream Parlors in the World, Leopold's is a "Must-Do." You'll love our retro ice cream parlor, complete with old-fashioned soda fountain & 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 brothers from Greece. They learned the art of candy and dessert from an uncle who had settled in America. The brothers perfected their secret formulas and created the now world-famous Leopold's VeriBest™ ice cream. Our ice cream is made in historic, Downtown Savannah, one batch at a time, using family recipes handed down from the Leopold brothers. With our full soda fountain menu & more than 28 flavors available at any given time, we've got something just for you!

We ate lunch (egg salad & chicken salad sandwiches) followed by tutti fruitti ice cream. Sandwiches with a choice of sides were very good and very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food menu is limited. Ice cream is the feature. Some old time flavors such as butter pecan and rum raisin are available but tutti fruitti was wonderful, full of fruit and nuts.

Very clean with nice rest rooms. Lots of movie memorabilia since the owner was in the movie industry.

Loved the large selection of ice creams here - we went every day that we were in Savannah. Everything was delicious.

If we're looking for ice cream, we will drive out of our way and fight parking downtown to have Leopolds. There are plenty of different flavors to select from. The service is very patient and helpful and the feel of the old time diner makes it even better. I've had the pimento cheese sandwich as well and that was extremely tasty.

We had to stop in for a taste of that wonderful, mouthwatering ice cream featured at Leopold's. We ended up eating salads and sandwiches that were very, very good. The service was great and all the employees were very helpful and friendly. It was a very nice experience!!

This family owned ice creamery has been around for a hundred years and they make the best ice cream on this planet, bar none: flavor intense and flavors not found anywhere else, including a few they invented and their seasonal specials (Pumpkin Spice in fall, Guiness infused in spring). When he isn't making ice cream in Savannah, owner Stratton Leopold makes movies in Hollywood (the line producer for Paramount), and the parlor is decorated with a collection of his movie posters and memorabilia. If you tried to get a meeting with him in LA, it would be impossible. But you can sit down with him over a bowl of Tutti-Fruitti and talk about your favorite movies. A quintessential Savannah experience.
