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!

I tried Rose Petal Ice Cream but ordered Frozen Hot Chocolate Ice Cream. It was delicious. Such an old school atmosphere and fun experience. There's a lot of history on the walls

“Creamery Dreamy Ice Cream”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Stopped because of the history and it did not disappoint. The staff were engaging and samples were allowed because they have so many flavors. Settled on coffee chocolate chip. All I can say is YUM! Don't miss it!

“Wonderful home made ice cream”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

We were in Savannah for one of the coldest weeks they have had in a long time but still had to stop by and have some homemade ice cream here. It all looks so delicious we had a hard time deciding what to choose. We ended up with some chocolate chunk and strawberry ice cream. It was fantastic. We also had a club sandwich here before we left and it was very good. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone for atmosphere and food and of course ice cream!!! Stratton Leopold the movie producer owns this restaurant and there is memorabilia from movies all around the restaurant. Very interesting place to visit.

“Delicious Must Do When in Savannah”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

First of all the ice cream is exceptionally creamy and delicious! You will really be able to taste the difference of this ice cream to large chains and big brands. We enjoyed the Chocolate Chewies and Cream in a waffle cone, fantastic! We also tried the Tutti Frutti: Yes, the fun flavor mentioned in the Johnny Mercer (Savannah Native) song of the same name.

This Ice Cream shop has great decor and character. You will appreciate the friendly staff, fun items on display, photos of famous fans, and the super clean surroundings. We will visit the next time we are in Savannah!

Dear Micaelabird,
I'm glad that you enjoyed the Chocolate Chewies & Cream and the Tutti Frutti ice cream. I grew up just around the corner from Johnny Mercer's house. I was about the same age as his niece Nancy. Johnny came into the shop frequently. I guess you could say he too was a Leopold's fan! Thanks for stopping by to see us!

“It's great”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

My wife told me we had to try this ice cream because it was picked as # 5 in the world by the people on a popular tv talk show. I told her all ice cream is good and there is not much difference between places. Ok, I was wrong. It was unusually great! We had mocha chic chip and choc chewies and cream.
