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!

“Worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went on recommendation from a friend, and we loved it. While the line was out the door, it did not take us very long to get in. The service was great, and the ice cream was amazing.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great ice cream! i liked it because it was a local Savannah business rather than a chain. It was open later than the shops which was a plus.

“Very rich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I absolutely love ice cream, and Leopold's has an array of choices all of which are made in-house. The flavors are exceptional and its easy to recognize the heavy cream content. TIP: Try the special flavors of the month -- very yummy!

“Unusual flavors!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Liked - A Savannah institution. Memorabilia on the walls. Unusual ice cream flavors (almond + local honey). Original recipes used (indicated by the ice cream flavor).
Disliked - Long line with RUDE people moving into you in line (I guess they were trying to move the line along?). Feeling rushed when placing the order. Payment methods not clearly indicated (they don't take American Express - not sure about other credit cards).

“Another tourist trap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

The ice cream was no better that the brand names from the grocery store. $5 for the two small scoops was ridiculous, not to mention the long line to get in! Just another tourist trap!!
