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

We ate at the Grand Dining Room for dinner one evening and it was our favorite. The Jekyll Shrimp & Grits were wonderful as well as the chocolate sea turtle dessert. The lovely piano player in the Grand Dining Room greatly added to the dining experience.

We only had the breakfast buffet (3 times), but it was very good each time. Plenty of the basics, including a wide variety of fruit, fruit juices, and pastries.

We had a special dinner in the Grand Dining Room and enjoyed every moment. We first visited the Jekyll Island Club in 1990 and had wonderful memories of the hotel and restaurant. We weren't disappointed this time. A wonderful dinner - starting with a the fantastic crab cake appetizer. Filet mignon was cooked perfectly and our desserts of Key Lime... More

Really enjoyed our Sunday Brunch. Great array of food, nice atmosphere and great service by Beth and team. Started with shrimp, crab legs and smoked salmon. Then a tomato and mozzarella salad and the main course of beef, salmon and sides. So much to choose from. There is a carving station, salad bar and omelette and breakfast station. You can't... More

What a rare find! Such a wonderful fine dining experience. The environment is elegant and the dining room very quiet. The waitstaff all have white dinner jackets on. China place settings are beautiful as is the old fashioned silverware. You don't see this old world charm very often! The food is great! Hot entrees were hot as they were served... More

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.
