We had an issue with the wait staff when instructions were made very clear prior to the meal. No matter how good the food, the wait staff can spoil an evening.

My wife and I are sailing our boat south and this was her first stop at Jekyll island. This is one of those historical jewels but also with incredible food, like the scallops. The lobby bar has one of the best cosmos we've ever had served by Michael. FYI if you r at the marina, the hotel has complementary pick... More

The Thanksgiving Brunch buffet is not just a treat for the palate, it is a true experience. From cheeses and pates, to steamed seafood, to traditional turkey and prime rib with all of the trimmings. And the desserts - Wow! Our waitress, Kathy, was wonderful and it was obvious that the entire staff was prepared and efficient. Looking forward to... More

Grand dining room breakfast is an experience; our granddaughter said the French toast was the best she'd ever had.

The Jekyll Island Hotel Dining Room is grand in every way. The staff is professional and attentive and the food is exceptional. Our family has been coming to the Jekyll Island Hotel Dining Room on Thanksgiving for 27 years. I hope the new owners will be as accommodating as the previous ones.

My husband and I enjoyed lunch at The Grand Dining Room and were very pleased with our Mahi Mahi and JP Morgan crab melt. The food was delicious and pretty views for lunch. My photo is our pool and Harbor view at lunch.

My family and I had reservations for breakfast and were seated next to a window as requested. I loved the formal table settings and the old style Victorian ambience of the entire room. My only disappointment was with some of the other patrons. A formal dining room commands some dress decorum, not jeans and flip flop sandals. Our breakfast was... More

The menu selections were mouth-watering and we were not disappointed with any of our choices (we enjoyed dinner here two separate nights). There is a piano player which added to the ambiance. Our servers were most attentive and truly understood the menu options/entrees. The dining room is beautiful and adds to the feeling of having a very special evening.

Dinner was nicely served with the ribeye and swordfish presented well. The ribeye melted in your mouth. The she-crab soup, however, was served cold. Service was very nice and friendly. Breakfast was another matter. First of all, our package was to include breakfast, but the Inn cards handed to us did not reflect that -and my husband took off for... More

The Jekyll Island Club Hotel Grand Dining Room continues to be the scene of social gatherings and gourmet experiences. Beautifully restored in the Victorian mode, the room is dominated by Ionic columns and gleaming white woodwork. Three handsome fireplaces, complete with intricately carved mantle pieces and marble surrounds, add warmth and cheer on a winter’s day. The lawns and the river can be seen through expansive windows, and the first blossoms of crepe myrtle and magnolia trees color the landscape in early spring. The glow of candlelight and piano music create an atmosphere of romance and anticipation of the gourmet meal to come. A cause celebre in Southern Georgia dining is the Grand Dining Room’s Sunday brunch, a culinary and visual delight. The last Sunday of most months boasts Sunday Dinner Dance with gourmet dining and ballroom dancing.
