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!

I'm always a sucker for an old fashioned ice cream parlor and trying premium local brands. Leopold's, while maybe not the best ice cream in the world, is a solid performer. Great choice of flavors and a creamy base. What's not to appreciate, especially as the weather gets hotter in Savannah? No wonder there are lines out the door all day and night. Also, look out for Leopold's at the Savannah/Hilton Head airport. A welcome addition there. Note: I only had the ice cream although it looks like you can get lunch here as well.

Dear DW123418,
Thank for the very nice review. We do indeed have lunch. We roast all of our own meats and make all of our specialty salads (shrimp, tuna, curry chicken, etc.) from scratch. Come back and try a sandwich sometime...along with another scoop of ice cream, of course!

Friendly staff. The flavours that we tried were delicious. If you love pistachio then try their version, loaded with whole pistachios.

If you like ice cream, you’ll enjoy this ice cream! It’s the most creamy ice cream I’ve ever had. The wait is well worth it. And to top it off, the movie memorial of the movie producer/owner is the “icing on the cake “. The food is good too. It’s a good idea to allow time to wait in line and be hungry. You won’t regret it!

Because I was in Savannah I made a point of going to this iconic tourist venue. I beg to differ with the many who have said the ice cream is the best ever. I would give it a B, maybe a B-plus but no better. The two flavors I ordered were nothing special and had some kind of aftertaste. Overall, not worth the high price.

We had about a 25 minute wait on a Sunday evening but it was definitely worth it. The ice cream was delicious and the service was so friendly. It’s great to be able to patronize a long standing local establishment.
