The Historic Wharf is located on Jekyll Island, this is the perfect location to see the boats traveling along the Intracoastal Waterway going to all parts of the world. This is the best location on Jekyll Island to watch the Tropical Sunset. This is also the home of Jekyll Island Boat Tours and the Wharf Restaurant. Come to the Wharf for lunch or dinner and take one of the many boat tours of the beautiful Georgia Coast where you will see much of our wildlife such as our Dolphins.

When I visited the restaurants and sections of the pier were being remodeled for opening in Spring of 2017. Great views of the marsh and of the Jekyll Island Club area. Chairs to sit in and view the wildlife and the calm of the river too.

Very sad to report that the lattitude and rah bar restaurant are closed. Wharf is still a beautiful place to see sunsets, watch the water and some boats. Historic district a lovely place to visit, highly recommended. Hope wharf restaurants reopen soon.

Stopped off to admire the hotel, so had a walk to the wharf. It's pretty, but it wad covered in bird and bird poop everywhere. It' was a nice place to enjoy the sunset. The restaurants were t open, but it probably would be nice to eat here.

We took the most beautiful Sunset pictures there but maybe because of Hurricane Matthew there were bugs biting you. We normally do not encounter as many bugs as we did this trip. I should have known when my husband said the fish were jumping out of the water that they were feeding on bugs. There were 8 to 10 of... More

During the Guilded Age the Jekyll Wharf was the gateway to the island. Millionaires (with family and servants in tow) would disembark from their yachts and have their first view of their island home for the next few months. A ferry transported train travelers or locals from Brunswick. Today, boats traveling the Intercoastal Waterway can anchor at the Jekyll Wharf.... More

We have visited the Jekyll wharf numerous times at Jekyll. As a matter of fact it is rare we visit the island and not go to the Wharf. There are wonderful restaurants, live music, a gift shop and boat tours available here. The view is lovely at high or low tide and this is a peaceful serene place to visit.... More

Amazing sunsets and just recently at low tide got to see sailboats with no water under them - quite interesting. This is the actual wharf that Captain Clark brought the rich and famous over from Brunswick to the Club.

We stopped here after a wonderful day on the nearby beach. The atmosphere and views are just a memorable way to finish the day on this Georgia island. Be sure to try the seafood; it is so fresh! It is a great find.

We stopped here to "rest" during our island bike rides. We ate lunch at the RAH bar which is located on the wharf twice and enjoyed the views.
