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!

This is a very quaint old fashioned ice cream parlor owned by Hollywood film producer Stratton Leopold.
Prepare to stand in line. On a hot Savannah evening the line can be down the street. The wait is definitely worth it to get the home made ice cream. Enjoy!!!

We heard all the fuss about this ice cream. Coming from an area that is know for it's homemade ice cream, we have to say it wasn't anything special. We have a couple dairy's that make their own homemade ice cream, Hershey's is not too far, and in our back door is the Penn State Creamery. After waiting in line for almost 45 minutes I guess it was a disappointment.

Dear Skkranch,
I'm sorry you were disappointed with your visit. We encourage tasting so come back and see us, taste a few more flavors. Let's see if we can't find one that you love.
Please tell our friends at Penn State Creamery that we say hello from Savannah!

If you love ice cream, then do not miss this stop! It is charming and some of the best ice cream I have ever consumed.

The ice cream here is an absolute dream for the fanatic. Rich and flavorful, and too many flavors to choose from. left here with a stomach ache trying to get through them all. And although the ice cream was fantastic, it was overshadowed by the staff. they were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. do not leave Savannah without treating yourself to this establishment.

Family was in town visiting from out of state. Took them to Leopold's and had a fantastic time. We all tried a different flavor and were all satisfied and happy!
