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!

We are visiting and heard that Leopold's had the best ice cream. It definitely lived up to its reputation

“Worth the Walk”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Our group was walking/shopping down the street and walked about 2 miles prior to arriving. We all had different flavors of ice cream and all thought, "mine is the best."

“Old Fashioned Ice Cream with Vintage Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This reminds me old southern ice cream parlors. You can order walk up style from the sundae counter or sit at tables in a couple of dining rooms full nostalgic decorations. A Savannah landmark. The ice cream has fantastic flavor and the servings are plentiful. A fun stop with the family. It does get a bit crowded especially for seating.

Dear TampaTrips,
My father and uncles started the business back in 1919. Hence the vintage feel you were getting. We still use their recipes today and work very hard to keep Leopold’s customer service up to the high standards they set 94 years ago. Thanks for stopping in and for taking the time to post your review.

“Fun place and friendly staff!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had heard about Leopold's so we stopped in and luckily the line had died down (about 9:30 PM). Everyone enjoyed their ice cream- I was surprised the prices were very reasonable. The employees were happy and friendly- my son tipped over his chair- which was no big deal- and the nice young man came rushing out from behind the counter to make sure he was OK. The atmosphere is fun and we were glad we stopped in. It made for a fun family memory! Pumpkin Spice and Tutti Frutti are delicious, by the way!

Dear JLH090,
I’m glad you stopped in with your family and I’m glad your son is fine. Pumpkin Spice is one of our most popular seasonal flavors and Tutti Frutti is one of the original flavors created in 1919. I’m glad you enjoyed both. Hope to see you all next time you visit Savannah!

“Sweet-Tooth Heaven!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

One of the highlights of our Savannah vacation was a visit to this retro ice-cream parlor. Both the atmosphere and the ice-cream dishes are guaranteed to make you feel happy. We liked it so much we went back for a second visit. Their old-fashioned root-beer floats and ice-cream sundaes are other-worldly. Definitely one of the sweet spots in our four day Savannah visit.
