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

We had great ice cream at Leopold's and were lucky enough to get a table but had a long wait in cold weather. The ice cream was very good. The consensus of our group was that the mint chip was the best. The historical atmosphere was very fun.

Dear jfletc3233,
Though we do have lines at times (for that we are thankful) people normally don’t wait more than 15 minutes max to order their ice cream. Our soda jerks work really hard to keep the lines moving quickly. I truly appreciate your willingness to wait and hope the ice cream made it worth waiting. Good choice on the Mint Chip! Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Please come back and see us again!

If you are an ice cream lover then you just have found ice cream heaven in this place. My sister had traveled to Savannah before and told us about this place. It is sinfully good, creamy texture and lots of flavors to choose on the menu. We were in Savannah for three days and came here every night for our dessert. Don't leave Savannah without experiencing Leopolds! Check out the history on the walls on how this place got it's start.

If you want old style real ice cream go to Leopold's. A family run business that has been around for years so locals and tourists go there. They have all the familiar flavors but always something creative to try. If you love ice cream you will love Leopold's.

The trolley tour pointed out this place, which I had never noticed before (have been coming here for several years), so had to check it out. Fantastic, old fashioned ice cream heaven. Iconic movie posters on the wall, great treats. Indulge.
