Diner Reviews
  • "We were in Savannah for the weekend! All 6 of us were from MD/DE (I'm the only one that now lives in FLORIDA). We know good crab cakes and would highly recommend the crab cakes here!"

  • "We passed by Belford's during a tour of the city, and a number of people recommended it for dinner. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly by our server, Jacki M. She gave great suggestions for our meal, and was cheerful and funny. My girlfriend's filet was cooked to perfection, and I was astounded by the lobster ravioli!! Overall, our experience was great and we enjoyed being in the center of the fun that is Savannah!!"

  • "We were in Savannah for two days with our Scottish terrier. This did limit our sightseeing and dining options, but Belford's was welcoming. We sat outside; the server immediately brought water for the dog. Our dinner was wonderful; we chose to have several appetizers - all delicious. The manager visited our table twice with biscuits for our pet. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this restaurant at all."

  • "My husband and I went here for our anniversary. The food and service was good, but it was a little pricey. I do recommend this restaurant but would not go regularly because if the prices."

  • "My husband and I were visiting Savannah for the first time and consulted Zagat's list of top-10 restaurants there. We chose Belford's from that list. All the food was excellently prepared. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and when I had a question about an ingredient in the dessert--an amazing pumpkin cheesecake--she went and asked the chef. I had the herb roasted chicken and it was juicy and needed no additional spices added to it. The baby kale salad was excellent as was the bread with a tasty oil-terragon spread. The outdoor area looked very appealing, but unfortunately it was too cool and windy to sit out that day. But the inside of the restaurant is just as enjoyable. We would definitely go there again."

  • "We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and the server was very friendly and acknowledged it right away. The service was very good, as was our meal of crabcakes and steak. We had an excellent bottle of wine, and the Creme Brule dessert was fantastic!"

  • "We were looking forward to dining at Belford's for our fourth wedding anniversary. The bread that was served and salad were very good. The main meal (filet and mashed potatoes) did lack the taste that we were looking for. My steak was tender but my husband's steak had gristle in the middle of the cut and was very tough. He was quite disappointed with the meal. The mashed potatoes were less than expected--very dry and tasteless. The nicest part of the meal was that the manager did give us a dessert for the anniversary meal."

  • "We had reservations and were seated promptly. There was a large party for a rehearsal dinner (30+) just behind our seating area. The noise and jubilation did not really bother us but the lack of staff attention surely did. We had 7:45 reservations & by 9:00 still did not have our dinner. It was explained that the kitchen was backed up due to the large party. so we asked for our check. The manager was sent to the table to assure us that our dinner would be right out. He offered to comp us a drink but WE WANTED FOOD, not more alcohol. Our food miraculously appeared in a few minutes and the tuna was icy cold in the middle. Obviously they tried to sear a frozen piece of tuna. We left hungry after almost 2 hours."

    Dined on 10/11/2014
  • "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."

  • "Outdoor dining right onto the city market makes the location great. The food was good but the service was fantastic! Our waiter was funny and entertaining through out the entire meal. Would definitely come back."
    Dined on 10/9/2014
  • "Wonderful crab cakes! Ambiance great and the waiter was very knowledgable and attentive. Many Savannah restaurants have noisy dining rooms and this was a pleasant alternative where the five of us could talk without shouting. Will definitely be going back!"
    Dined on 10/4/2014
  • "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!!"

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."

  • "This is a beautiful restaurant and the food is good but very much over priced. I had the jumbo lump crab cakes . The crab cakes were large but we're not largely jumbo lump crab meat. I was disappointed in the quality. Drink special was excellent."
    Dined on 9/13/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/30/2014
  • "Our table was ready when we arrived. We were waited on in a timely manner. The server was very attentive and helpful in ordering our food. We received it in a short amount of time and it was just as we ordered it. Very good. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Four of us were from Texas and two in our party from Virginia. We loved it!"

  • "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."

  • "They had a watermelon salad the day we ate lunch and it was delicious! The seared ahi tuna was good not disappointing but nothing outstanding. My husband said the hamburger was good and he would eat it again. Service was fine no complaints. Outside dining looked nice but too hot when we were there."

  • "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."
