Went for lunch and my husband got the shrimp & grits. Said it was the best he ever had. I had a salad and the skirt steak which was also wonderful. My only complaint is our waitress seemed to be just going through the motions.....More

We ate breakfast here each morning. We also ate brunch here on Sunday. If you want brunch, make your reservations at least a few days ahead of time.

I think so but I would suggest you call the front desk and ask to be sure. We did not eat lunch there just breakfast and dinner.

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.
