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!

“Don't forget the sodas!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

After several days of eating vacation food, we were eager for something simpler, and Leopold's hit the spot. The sandwiches with pasta salad were just what we needed. I cannot stress how yummy the sodas were! Leopold's is known for it's ice cream, but the soda counter produced the best cream soda I've ever tasted! My husband got the cheesecake ice cream soda and it was wonderful as well! Don't miss Leopold's!

“worth the trip”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Really cool spot with an old-timey movie feel to it. There was a line out the door but the ice cream is worth the wait. There is no wonder why it is so popular. Its delicious.

“Nice Ice Cream Parlor”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Nice Ice Cream. The way they talk this place up on the trolley tours (one of the top 10 ice cream parlors according to USA today) it was kind of hard not to be let down a little. At the end of the day it was good ice cream, and I would go back. I recommend Tutti Frutti.

Dear Jeff E:

Thank you for your note and thanks for enjoying our Tutti Frutti! My father started making that flavor in 1919. We are very proud of his recipes and will never change them.

Hope to see you in Savannah again soon.

“Yes honey, it's worth the wait!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

If you are lucky enough to arrive at Leopold's during a 'slow' period, relish it. Otherwise, patiently wait in line for a scoop of their divine honey almond cream, I promise it is better than I could ever describe in words.

Dear Kimkan:

Thank you for visiting Leopold's and for your review! When my Dad opened the business in 1919, he only made twelve flavors or so. Honey Almond is a recent addition...about four years ago. We use Savannah Bee Artisan Honey and are very proud of their product. It complements my Dad's recipe so well. Happy you enjoyed it!

Come back soon.

“Great ice cream!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

When I heard "rated as one of the five best ice creams in the world", I was " yeah, right". After the chocolate gooey s and cream and the lemon cream, ( two of the original favors), I have to agree. But what are the other four? Who cares! Great staff - some from SCAD - very friendly!
