The Grand Dining Room is a lovely and well appointed room. There are always fresh flowers on the tables, as well is cloth napkins. Nothing shabby here. Purely first class all the way.. Piano player in the evening, soft lighting and very attentive waitstaff.Sunday brunch is quite the special meal. All of what you would expect and more. Enjoy!!

How DO they do it??? Here, in the winter playground of the rich and powerful from back-in-the-day, is the Grand Dining Room of the Jekyll Island Club. One can feel the history here. The Robber-Barons and their families relaxing in the Georgia Sun, away from the harsh winter of the Northeast. Not only would I have not been invited to... More

The Sunday breakfast (not brunch) was wonderful and very affordable. The breakfast buffet had a plentiful, typical, variety of breakfast foods and the atmosphere was very elegant for such a nice price.

The Grand Dining room at the Jekyll Island Club hotel is a special place. It is a beautifully adorned room, formally attired with linens, fresh flowers on each table, etc. The service was also excellent and friendly. Our meal, however, was not really up to expectations. There was nothing wrong with our meal, but it simply was not special. We... More

We enjoyed several meals here during our stay. Our first meal was so enjoyable, we returned again and again. Expect southern cooking, but very good southern cooking. I was guided by my wife who hails from the heart of Georgia. This is not haute cuisine by any means, but just comfort food carefully prepared . . . at the part... More

We decided to have breakfast before heading to tour the old homes. We were offered buffet or menu service. Never had our coffee below half cup & they filled us up. Offered and Brought us GF toast. Pricing was well below what we expected and the food options were everything you could imagine!! Great experience!!

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.
