Belford’s Savannah

Keeping it traditional while looking forward. Experience some of the south’s finest cuisine at this historic upscale locale.

One of Savannah’s most established restaurants, Belford’s prides itself on its excellent customer service and respect for tradition. Built in 1902 the building originally belonged to the Savannah Hebrew congregation. It was sold 21 years later to the Belford family to house their wholesale food company, and is the origin of the restaurant’s name. 

With strong roots to the past, the restaurant which opened in 1996 strives to be forward-thinking. Its classy ambiance and heart pine floors are interspersed with modern decor. The focused menu shines with USDA prime aged steaks and a comprehensive wine list to pair. “People understand that they’re going to get a quality meal,” Manager Andrew Hill said. “It’s an upbeat, fun, comfortable setting.” 

Belford’s puts a twist on traditional shrimp and grits by including a crispy fried grit cake and soulful Southern greens.  You’ll find plenty of favorites that will have you coming back for more.\
