Description: No trip to Savannah is complete without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream! Named One of the Top 10 Ice Cream Parlors in the World, Leopold's is a "Must-Do." You'll love our retro ice cream parlor, complete with old-fashioned soda fountain & 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 brothers from Greece. They learned the art of candy and dessert from an uncle who had settled in America. The brothers perfected their secret formulas and created the now world-famous Leopold's VeriBest™ ice cream. Our ice cream is made in historic, Downtown Savannah, one batch at a time, using family recipes handed down from the Leopold brothers. With our full soda fountain menu & more than 28 flavors available at any given time, we've got something just for you!

We were here a year ago and loved it, so it was the first thing for us to do when we were here a year later. Even at 9:00 pm the line was down the block and around the corner. We were tired from a 7-hour drive, so opted for Below Zero, but we came back the next day in the afternoon and the line resulted in a half-hour wait, but it's SOOO good. The staff is very accommodating, and don't rush you. Three of us had the honey almond and creme and there was nothing commercial about it. It was so good. I had a waffle cone, which is $1.50 extra, and a second scoop, which was Japanese cherry blossom. A trip to Savannah is not complete without a visit to Leopold's! There is seating, and three of us bought T-shirts. Dominique happily went upstairs to get my size. Seating is available, and a variety of ice cream drinks. They have pre-packed ice cream, cones, and cups. Tasting bites from small plastic spoons is offered.

old style decor, nice staff and good selection of flavors. If you have the time, it's worth the wait (over an hr for me).

Great service. Great ice cream. Great atmosphere! Workers were extremely friendly and even though there was a line, it went very quickly and a worker brought ice water and menus out to the people in line. I got coconut ice cream with hot fudge and I must have said 20 times how good it was while I was eating it!
This place did not disappoint!

Very tasty ice cream. My son loved it. I tried different flavors and they were all great. The coffee ice cream is remarkable and the chocolate chip was delicious. We will return when we visit savannah in the future.
