The service was just right - quietly there when needed but never intrusive. A varied menu including lots of seafood (and not fried!); the salmon special was delicious. A lovely setting - we sat at a window table in the round glass space. Nice piano music in the background. An elegant place to celebrate a special occasion!

Excellent service. Very friendly but not chatty. Menu very interesting offering Dover sole which in not often available. Cocktails perfect. My husband's halibut had an excellent presentation. It is a "crusty" old grand and historical dining room and fun it imagine who may have been seated at our table in days gone by. Unusual preparation of Key Lime pie. Very... More

Thanks for the nice comments. We appreciate your review and sharing about your excellent service. The restaurant staff is great and it is always good to hear it. We all often wonder, like you, what it would have been like to step back for one night during the "millionaire's time," and dine in the Grand Dining Room. More

We have eaten the breakfast buffee here for years but we're very disappointed with the quality of the food this time. We biked over from Villas By the Sea and arrived about 9. The eggs and the grits we're dried out. They use to cook your eggs to order but this wasn't offered time. Absolutely nothing special and you pay... More

Perfect dining and later breakfast experience for our Anniversary. The meals were superb, the dining room very historic and 100 yr old elegant. My wife almost immediately said we now know where our Daughter's weddings will be held. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Very good piano player in a beautiful old mansion dinning room sets the stage. The food was very tasty and nicely presented. Service was very good. Get their early and walk the grounds and have a drink at the bar just outside the dinning room.

Description
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.
