I used to love this place. Some time back, a larger corporation from Connecticut acquired a majority ownership stake and the food quality and quantity have greatly diminished. A good part of the Old South died that day. Corporate bean counters will be the death...More

Men jacket requested in the evening. Sometimes a pianist... usually after having coffee! Nice to wander the grounds, sit on the deck, have an aperitif at the bar in the hall while waiting. Save a little money by going for lunch.More

We had a nice lunch of Chicken Salad with Key lime pie for dessert. All was very good and service for the group was fine. The hotel public areas are very nice and worth stopping by to see.

Thanks for stopping in. We are glad you had a nice dining experience. The key lime pie has been on our menu as a house specialty since we opened in 1986. Good choice!

Though we didn’t dine here, we visited to learn of its rich history. The spot has been perfectly restored to the days of old. It worth your time for sure. We will have dinner there and probably stay in the hotel upon our return.

Delicious dinner and wine in an elegant reminder of a bygone era. Good service, and a pianist providing classy background music. Only drawback: a screaming baby. Really not the setting for little ones.

Thank you for dining with us. You can almost envision the millionaires of yesteryear dining in there. The pianist is a wonderful addition to the evening atmosphere. Come see us again in the near future.

We went here for dinner on Easter. Although they were a bit understaffed, which is understandable, everyone was extremely friendly and apologetic. I would say the service was excellent. Our food was really good too!

We do ask that gentlemen wear a collared shirt. No jeans or hats or shorts at dinner.

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.
