Coming from an area in the middle of dairy farms and having quite a few local "homemade" ice creams near home.......this was a special treat. AWESOME creamy ice cream, lots of flavors to choose from. We read that there could be long lines, I guess we got lucky, no line. But it would be worth the wait.

Long line. Decent ice cream. I had the peanut butter chippy. Much better than chain places and lots of ice cream and sundae options. They also have food on the menu, but we (my dog and I) just had ice cream.

My husband got a banana milkshake and I just got a cup of their chocolate ice cream, and it was the perfect way to end the evening.

Great ice cream and service my one complaint is that there is always a long line. You have to have time and patience but it is well worth it. Good old fashioned ice cream

Waited in line for about 30 mins. While waiting they handed us out free cups of ice water which was so nice! Got to order and got a coffee flavored ice cream and it was the best ice cream I have ever tasted! Def will be back at the end of the month for another great visit!!

Went here three times during my week long visit! A very neat business with a lot of history. Great ice cream selection and very friendly service! There is often a line but it moves quickly. The wait staff even brought out cups of water for those standing in line on a very hot day. This is a must in Savannah!

Walk-able from the river, serves up tasty ice cream. Often has a line but the line moves relatively quickly. Worth the stop.

Had to stand in line for about an hour, but it was well worth the wait. Staff was serving water as we stood outside on a hot day. Menu also provided. Reasonable prices. Many choices to delight everyone. A must stop in Savannah. Leopold's Ice Cream was the perfect way to spend our last day in Savannah.

When we were on the trolley ride our driver drove by and said this place had been rated as the "5th best ice shoppe in the world". Well I had to see for myself so later in the day we walked from our hotel to the shoppe. There was a long line but it moved fast. The ice cream was... More

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!
