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!

“Delicious and fun! Don't miss Leopold's!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Enjoyed our HIGHLY recommended trip to Leopold's Ice Cream. It was a bit cooler outside, so the line was fairly short. In spite of this, a wonderful young lady came out several times to offer guests glasses of ice water (What great service!).

Once inside, we were encouraged to try as many flavors as we wished. We settled on vanilla in a waffle cone and a honey almond (suggested by the girl with the water). We were delighted with our treats.

There is definitely a reason why Leopold's is so highly rated in the WORLD, never mind here on Trip Advisor. We were only in Savannah for the weekend, but even in that short amount of time, we managed to recommend Leopold's to the other guests who were at our B&B.


Delightful & Delicious!

“Small and busy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

We wanted to see Leopolds as it is a "landmark" in Savannah. The menu is a bit limited and it's a crowded stand-in-line to order type place.
