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 28 flavors available at any given time, we've got something just for you!

Reviewed January 12, 2013

Can't be beat for icecream in Savannah. Home made on site. People friendly well kept icecream parlor. Sit knee to knee with your sweetheart at small tables. This is where the memories of babyboomers and thier parents come back to life. Charming. My mouth is watering for 1 Rum Raisen and 1 Pistachio in a cup with a cone on the top. About $5. I think I'll head there now.

“Ice cream shop that harkens back to the soda counters of the 40's”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

If you would like to step back in time and have some awesome custom ice cream this is the place. The decor is elegant, the ice cream is custom made for the shop, and the lunch items delicious. The movie memorabilia is from the owner's day job, Hollywood movie producer. The chocolate milk shakes were wonderful. Rich, creamy and drinkable through a straw. The cherry smash soda float was very sweet and made the old fashioned way, Cherry syrup, seltzer water, and ice cream. The last place I found this was at the old Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood, CA.

“Great Ice Cream, Great Service”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I make sure to stop by every time we visit Savannah, and we have never disappointed. On our most recent trip, the owner, Mary, went out of her way to help us after hours. Now that's service!

Stopped for a late-night treat and it was delicious! Had something with chewy pralines covered in chocolate. It was wonderful!
