Executive Chef Clifton Holt

A "homegrown" Chef from Cullman, Alabama, Chef Clif has lived in Alabama his entire life.  Chef Clif's deep appreciation for food was inspired at a young age through his Grandmother. Chef served in the U.S. Navy before pursuing a career in engineering and design but soon realized his passion was pulling him into a different direction.  

Chef Clif made the decision to go after his dream and get into the culinary field.  Chef began his career by working with several notable Chefs and restaurants before finally making his lifetime dream a reality in 2003, when he opened his own restaurant.  That is when Little Savannah Restaurant & Bar was born and Chef Clif easily named his new restaurant, after another love in his life - his daughter Savannah.
Chef Clif started out the restaurant with only 15 seats and quickly realized that he had something great going on and decided to expand Little Savannah Restaurant & Bar by adding on to the building.  Although, Little Savannah has changed through out the years - one thing has remained the same, Chef Clif's dedication, drive and pursuit to only serve the finest of ingredients.  Chef Clif grows his own, whether at the restaurant or at his home, herbs and vegetables-like okra, bell peppers, jalapeño peppers, onions, turnip greens, kale and lettuces to just name a few.  Chef Clif, also, proudly supports the local farmers in the community which all in all truly makes Little Savannah Restaurant & Bar a farm-to-table restaurant and stand out above the rest.

Not fine dining but dining fine.
