We always enjoy the wonderful ambiance, the outstanding menu, quality of food and exceptional service in the Jekyll Grand Dining Room. It’s never ordinary in any way and always most special.

This place is a must for dinner if you are on Jekyll Island. The food is great and the service is first class. I, in fact, like to have breakfast here also, but the dinners are the best.

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.
