We try to visit the Jekyll Club at least once a year, for about a week. The highlight of our trip is always seeing familiar faces and smiles. Sylvia, the tea hostess, always brightens my day, and those blueberry scones and lemon curd - to die for! Robyn and Amanda are sure to stop and make you feel at home:... More

A good many of the hotel associates has been with us long term. We are glad you see the same faces from year to year. It really is a wonderful place to work and the associates are proof of that. We are pleased you had a great dining experience. We hope to see you again next year-with the baby! More

Upon arrival for 1st of 4 nights spent for Big Band weekend, we had dinner reservations here prior to the Dessert & Dance event held @ the hotel's Morgan Center. Our server, Aarin, was personable & efficient & perfectly timed all courses. We both had the "Signature Salad," very attractively plated w/an excellent house vinaigrette followed by their award winning... More

The Big Band Dance Weekend is an annual event and glad you could attend. We are very happy that you had a great experience in the Grand Dining Room on that Friday evening, but we are saddened to know the dinner at the dance on Saturday night fell short. We certainly would like additional details if you would like to... More

Had lunch-brunch here and venue, mean, ambiance, food and service were all exceptionally good. The big surprise was the reasonable prices for what is decidedly an upscale venue. We will definitely go back and try the dinner option. I would heartily recommend this restaurant to locals and out-of-towners. It won't disappoint and will not rape your wallet. Walk the grounds...

Our brunch here is a highlight! And, you are correct in mentioning the lawn bowling and bocce-it was a favorite of the original millionaires that built the Jekyll Island Club. Hope to see you again soon. More

Since there are few to no other places on the island to have breakfast we try to offer a wide variety to please everyone-hotel guests and island guests alike. Glad everyone found something they liked! More

We agree! The Club does offer a wonderful breakfast and you do not have to be a hotel guest to enjoy it-it is open to the public. And, the associates are quite special. Most have been here a long time and we are lucky to have them on the team. More

Well, that certainly was a fabulous review. We are so excited that you finally packed that blazer and came to dinner (though brunch is awesome as well). We expect to see you again on your next trip. We like to think of the atmosphere as historic and classic! For others, don't let the haunted comment keep you away. 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.
