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!

“Very Tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We stopped by Leopold's on a Wednesday night and the line was out the door and around the sidewalk. However the line moves fairly fast. We were greeted by the employees outside and then were brought ice cold water while we waited. The staff was great! The ice cream is very tasty! Will absolutely go there again next time we visit!

“Delicious old-school parlor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

I'll keep this review short: The ice cream is of course delicious and you get that historic downtown feel -- what's not to love?

We were greeted by smiling faces asking us if we wanted to sample some flavors. I chose the chocolate chocolate chip and the mocha chocolate chip, which ended up being a great combo. Prices were excellent and we enjoyed looking at all the movie posters of films that the owner has produced.

Dear Bryden M,
Thanks for the great review! I'm glad you have a great ice cream experience and enjoyed the movie posters from my "day job." That old-school parlor feel comes from the soda fountain. It's the original fountain that my dad and uncles had in their parlor starting in 1919. Thanks again and please come back and visit soon!

“GREAT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

I've been a lot places and eaten a lot of ice cream and this is by a long shot the best ice cream I've ever had.I especially loved the lemon custard. It is reasonably priced. Great service.They pick up your trash and give you samples. The title says it all.

“Wonderful Ice Cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

We went for a light dinner...sandwiches were good. Do not get limeade or lemonade flat or fizzy they did not tell us they were unsweetened so basically we had the juice of a lime or lemon over ice or selzter water...not so good & some unhappy people in our group. Then we ended with ice cream...very good! Right down to the lemon custard that hasn't changed since 1919.

Dear ALW0602,
Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to post a review. We squeeze each Lemonade and Limeade to order and use pure simple syrup to reach each individual customer’s desired level of sweetness. It seems that we failed to inquire about how sweet you wanted your drink. I apologize for that oversight. I encourage you to come back and give us another try. Please ask for me, Stratton. I would like to make your Lemonade myself next time. I think you will be pleased with the results!

“From another time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is an old fashion ice cream parlor. The ice cream was really incredible. It was worth the block long wait in the heat. The staff even came out and served ice water to individuals in line. Really Good.
