Belford's Savannah Seafood & Steaks

Gay Friendly Wedding Venue


Belford’s restaurant is situated in a beautiful old brick building in the heart of Savannah’s National Landmark Historic District. The building is listed in Historic Savannah Foundation’s architectural inventory as a notable example of its style and is praised in architectural surveys for its arched windows, exposed brick walls and doorways with semicircular, segmental arched toplights.


The Belford’s Wholesale Food Company was an active and integral part of The City Market, the bustling social and commercial heart of early Savannah.  The actual market, a splendid edifice with soaring brick arches and open-air stalls for the sale of produce, fish, meat and baked goods, was located two blocks East on Ellis Square. 

The demolition of that market in the late 1950’s was a tragedy in the eyes of local preservationists and was the catalyst that began the preservation and restoration of the historic district of Savannah. Ironically, the demolition of the original City Market probably saved four blocks of surrounding feed, seed, grain and produce warehouses, collectively now known as City Market, including the Belford building, now known as Belford’s Savannah.

Today, Belford’s houses the best seafood and steaks in Savannah. Menu specialties include Crab Cakes, Shrimp, Greens and Grits, Smoked Salmon as well as our mouth watering certified Angus beef steaks. Don’t forget to save room for Marlowe’s white chocolate cheesecake.    

Belford’s restaurant has hosted a number of notable figures, including well-known Hollywood personalities Clint Eastwood, Debra Winger, Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck, Robert Altman and Garrison Keilor of Lake Woebegone fame who have delighted in the atmosphere of bygone days and incomparable cuisine.  Wonderful wines accompany Belford’s fine food in restaurant surroundings that whisper their history on both sides of the arched windows.
