If you’ve ever been to Savannah, chances are you’ve heard of Belford’s. Belford’s Savannah is considered one of the best restaurants in the city, with a reputation built on superb food and exceptional service.
Belford’s is located right in the heart of downtown Savannah, in one of the oldest locations of the historic district, on the southwest corner of City Market. The building was built in 1902, originally home to the Savannah Hebrew Congregation, and was later sold to the Belford family as a wholesale food company. The painted signs found on the outer walls of the building are the remnants of that original company, which in 1996, became the Belford’s Savannah restaurant we now know and love. The photos on the walls of the restaurant are a look back at those days.
On April 25, Belford’s was closed due to a small kitchen fire. While repairing the damage to the kitchen area, the owners decided to do additional upgrades. The upgrades include a second fully functional kitchen in the basement and a new hood and air handling system in the open kitchen. Guests can now enjoy more efficient preparation and service, and large parties will be more seamlessly served now that Belford’s reopened on September 20.
Along with their intriguing history, Belford’s is especially known for its award-winning menu, consisting of some of the best seafood, steaks, and fine wines the southeast has to offer. The most popular menu items, according to customers, are crab cakes, green fried tomatoes, a wide selection of wines, and of course, their steaks.
Belford’s has become a statement of the Historic District, not only to tourists but locals as well. Here, you can find the perfect venue for anything you have in mind. From a simple date night out, to special occasions or large group dinners; perhaps even something as simple as a business meeting and a bar, Belford’s has it all. To make dining at Belford’s even more appealing, the outdoor covered patio, sprinkled with fairy lights, make a lovely location to dine in the evening.
Once you dine at Belford’s, you will understand why customers say such good things like: “Couldn’t have been more impressed. Both the food and the cocktails were fresh, inventive and delicious.” “Amazing food with awesome service.” “We’ve been dining at Belford’s on visits to Savannah for about 9 years, and our experiences have always been great.”
