    While The Mahi Mahi special and drinks were really good, we also got the filet that had a demi glaze on it, and it was drenched. There was no scraping / getting the glaze off, it overpowered the steak! From the Mahi special, I know they can cook good food, I just cannot recommend the steak at the steakhouse. The service was great however, and so was the dessert.

    We had the crab cakes and pork chop. Wonderful! The crab cake presentation has changed. The cakes now are served on top of risotto which didn't work as well as the red rice and asparagus. Nevertheless, the crab cakes are to die for. The pork chop was tender and moist with an excellent flavor. Jason or waiter is simply the best. He gets it!!

    This was an outstanding restaurant for our visit to Savannah. We ordered off the brunch menu since there were so many delicious offers. We started with fried green tomatoes which were excellent; then I had the Oysters Benedict. My husband had the steak and eggs which were also excellent. I highly recommend Belford's!!

    My party of 4 was visiting Savannah to see an event at the Savannah Civic Center. I went online to find a good restaurant that was easy to walk to. We were all very pleased with our choice of Belford's. We sat outside which was very pleasant. We all had different meals and everyone enjoyed their choice. The waitress was very attentive and overall it was an enjoyable experience.

    Enjoyed a wonderful meal and cocktails off City Market. The only disappointment of the evening was that they no longer have the Ahi Tuna app that they still show on their website menu. We got over it quickly and still had an amazing meal, but strongly suggested that they maintain their website a little better as those that come in from out of town use that tool to make decisions.

    Visited Savannah to celebrate my birthday and this restaurant came highly recommended. The service was excellent and it was a great night to dine outdoors. However the food was not that great. My husband LOVES she crab soup and by nature rarely sends anything back (it has to be awful) and he could not finish his soup because it was so bad. His chicken had wayyyy too much peanut butter in the satay. My Lobster ravioli was served cold and I only ate 2 of the 6. I was not impressed and will come back for drinks but not to eat. The pluses are the service was outstanding.

    The crab cake is one of the best I have ever had. Large with a lot of crab meat and the 2 sauces that come with it just enhance the flavor, a spicy jalapeno sauce on top and a a sweet tomato jam on the bottom. Would highly recommend coming just for the crab cakes.

    Food was delicious. Waitress very attentive and patient with first time customers. I think her name was Amber. The watermelon Salad with grilled shrimp on top was excellent. While reservations are required, there was no reason for it that day. Only two other tables occupied at that time. Just a little pompous.

    My daughter and I decided to visit Savannah at the last minute and made a reservation for Belford's. What a wonderful find! Our server suggested we split the She Crab soup- which was more than enough and saved us some money. The Simi wine was reasonably priced and the seafood was outstanding. The manager helped out her staff by serving our entrees. Well done. We would be happy to return.

    Belford Tavern is our new favorite restaurant! We are locals and just found Belford Tavern by googling 'crabcakes'. Super impressed with the service, and the $15 crab cake sandwich is worth every dollar. They are hands down the BEST crabcakes we've had in the Lowcountry. Very little filler and all lump crab meat. Also, their white chocolate bread pudding with caramel sauce is to die for. We will be back ~ often.

    My friend and I dined at Belford's during Restaurant Week and ate outside to enjoy the activity in City Market. It is an inviting spot and the food has always been consistently good on the occasions I've lunched and had dinner there. The menu is reflective of southern cuisine, and the portions are quite ample and nicely presented. It is casual and upbeat, and the wait staff is above average. I will be returning soon again.

    If you're wandering around City Market, Belford's is worth checking out. Food flavor and presentation are similar to far more expensive restaurants. The restaurant was an old general store, completely open and with high ceilings. Great for ambiance, although it can up the noise level. Still, it's a fun place with good food -- a great combination when you're hungry.

    The two dishes we ordered were not cooked the way they were described. The tuna dish was supposed to be Ahi tuna, but was definitely not! My husbands dish was supposed to have a bourbon Demi-glacé. It was just barbecue sauce thrown on top of the chop. When we voiced our feelings to our waitress, she disappeared , just sent over the manager and never came by us again . Very disappointing for the reputation it has.

    This was the second time we went to Belford's, & both times the food has been great. My wife is vegan & unable to eat wheat products, so we spoke to them the day before our reservations. They made her a wonderful dish using ingredients from other items on the menu. I had the baked brie & crab cakes, both of which were awesome. We will go back any time we return to Savannah.

    My husband and I dined here during our first-ever visit to Savannah and could not have been more pleased! The atmosphere was great for a romantic dinner together, yet it was lively enough to be a fun experience too. We had the smoked salmon appetizer, which we are STILL raving about. I had the shrimp and scallop ravioli - to DIE for!! He had the classic steak frites, which totally satisfied his craving for a nice cut of steak. To finish we had the caramel cheesecake - so rich, creamy and indulgent. We are so looking forward to the next opportunity to come back again!

    We were visiting the area from Atlanta with my parents from Chicago and my toddler. This place is in a great spot and has a very nice, upscale feel. Everyone there was very nice. I am not a "foodie" and not into steak. SO... I tried the salmon which was really my only choice. And the caesar salad. They were great. The bread is fantastic as well.
